Traditional Home Wine Cellar West Vancouver Builders

Traditional Home Wine Cellar West Vancouver Builders

An interior designer was looking for an experienced company to help her build a traditional home wine cellar. She hired Blue Grouse Wine Cellars, one of the most reliable master builders in Vancouver, Canada. They needed to utilize wine racks made from wood to achieve a timeless appeal. Learn more about the features of this wine cellar.

An Interior Designer Worked with a Master Builder in Building Her Residential Wine Cellar

Blue Grouse Wine Cellars completed another wine room installation project in West Vancouver, Canada. Since the owner is an interior designer, they were challenged and expected more specific instructions from her about how she wanted her wine room to look

The customer had a design plan in mind. She wanted Blue Grouse Wine Cellars to build a wine cellar that utilizes traditional wooden wine racks. She requested the wine racks to be darkly colored to match the modern theme of her luxurious home. The flooring, ceiling, and lighting fixture are her personal choice.

Being in the construction industry for more than two decades, Blue Grouse Wine Cellars is very experienced. They can anticipate what concerns the client may have. They always do their best to meet the functional, aesthetic, and financial needs of every client. They are ready to guide homeowners in determining the perfect wine storage solution for their space.

Incorporating Classic Wine Cellar Features into the Design

On this project, the room was small and is narrow like a hallway. It has a height of 96 inches, a width of 102 inches, and length of 87.5 inches. The space is similar to a cathedral because the ceiling at the center is higher than that of the sidewalls. The metal chandelier hanging from the middle ceiling added a contemporary appeal to the wine cellar.

Assessment of Needs and Creation of 3D Images of the Wine Room

Before creating the 3-dimensional drawings, Blue Grouse Wine Cellars always makes sure that the images will provide the customer a better visualization of the completed wine room. To achieve this, they made a careful assessment of the client’s requirements, taking note of every detail.

In this crucial step in building a wine cellar, they need to know the size of the collection and bottles and the overall ambiance that the owner wants to achieve. Additionally, it is also significant to know whether the client buys her wines by the bottle or in bulk cases.

After taking note of all of the requests of the designer, Blue Grouse Wine Cellars implemented them into the design. The 3D images included the various elevations, dimensions of the racking, different bottle orientations, and bottle capacities.

Custom Wine Rack Design

The team of Blue Grouse Wine Cellars recommended custom features for the racking. Both the left and right walls have the same bottle orientations. They combined different racking styles to add functionality and offer maximum storage capacity. They also made sure that the overall design is visually appealing.

Arch and Countertop Adds a Focal Point to the Racking in the Side Walls

Blue Grouse Wine Cellars added an arch and countertop, a common feature in most wine cellars in Vancouver. It adds character to the wine room. The client can use the countertop area to store and organize a few bottle and wine cellar accessories.

Your choice of lighting can make or break the ambiance of your cellar. On this project, the top of each archway has a spotlight, which highlights the objects on the tabletop.

Diamond and Wood Case Storage Bins

Since the owner loves to buy wines in cases, Blue Grouse Wine Cellars thought that adding diamond and case storage bins would provide a better way to display and organize the bottles.

The diamond bins store the bottles one on top of another. The owner can use each section in the diamond bins for sorting the bottles according to variety, style, or size.

The rectangular bins allow for storing the client’s bottles in wooden cases. Each of the three shelves can store two cases.

Individual Wine Racks and Display Row

The individual wine racks can store 750 ml bottles. Blue Grouse Wine Cellars added the openings on both sides of the arch (top section) and the diamond bins (bottom section). This type of racking displays the bottles with the cork or cap facing out.

There is a display row in the middle section of the racking, on both sides of the arch and tabletop. It pitches the bottles at a 15-degree angle to keep the cork moist.

Dried cork will cause an unwanted amount of oxygen to get into the bottle and mix with the wine. When this happens, wine will deteriorate due to oxidation.

Properties of Knotty Alder

The wine rack material is another factor that affects the overall appeal of your wine storage facility. At Blue Grouse Wine Cellars, they always make sure that they manufacture wine racks from high quality and attractive material.

On this project, they used Knotty Alder, a popular wood species widely used in the construction of wine racks. It exhibits beautiful clusters and knots, and adds a rustic appeal in wine cellars when stained and lacquered.

Safe and Dramatic Lighting

With the proper choice of lighting, you can illuminate your wine display area with visual appeal. Also, your wine collection will be protected from heat damage. Regular bulbs can damage your collection because they emit excessive heat and UV light that can affect the taste and aroma of the wine.

On this project, Blue Grouse Wine Cellars used the LED (Light Emitting Diode). This type of lighting system is ideal for refrigerated wine rooms because it does not emit too much heat. It also has a longer lifespan than incandescent and fluorescent bulbs.

Build You Dream Wine Cellar with an Expert

If you want to convert an extra room into an elegant and safe home wine cellar, you must work with a master builder. Blue Grouse Wine Cellars designs and builds custom wine rooms in West Vancouver and the surrounding areas. Contact them today at 604-929-3180.

How a Top-Notch Builder Increased the Storage Capacity of a Home Wine Cellar in La Jolla California

A homeowner in La Jolla, California, had a custom wine cellar that was built in 2008. However, his growing collection required a larger wine storage space. He approached Vintage Cellars, one of our most trusted dealers in wine room construction, to add new sections to accommodate more bottles. Learn how this awesome project was completed.

Expansion Project for a High-End Residential Wine Cellar

Challenges cannot be avoided when building a residential wine cellar. One of these challenges is to create a design that will accommodate the growing collection of the homeowner.

Vintage Cellars, one of our wine cellar dealers, built a custom wine room for their customer who lives in La Jolla, California. The first installation was completed in 2008. After 5 years, they started the second installation for the expansion of the wine cellar because the owner loves to buy wines in bulk.

Vintage Cellars needed to double the size of the existing wine cellar to accommodate the growing collection of the client. The original wine room could store 1,100 bottles. After incorporating various racking styles and adding new sections to the racking, they were able to provide a storage space for 1,624 bottles of different sizes.

Custom Features of the Expanded Residential Wine Cellar

The client’s home interior was built with wood and glass. All of their furniture and cabinetry were made of Sapele Mahogany.

This wood has a medium to reddish brown color, which makes it a favorite construction material for wine racks. When stained, its grain patterns look more attractive.

The contractor and architect of the house gave Vintage Cellars a palette to match the existing woodwork.

Stability and durability are other characteristics of Sapele Mahogany. It is also safe to use in climate-controlled wine cellars in La Jolla, California, because it is scent-free. This will prevent unwanted odor from affecting the overall quality of the wines.

CAD drawings were created to provide the homeowner a better visualization of the completed wine room. The 3D images, which are in black and white, show the dimensions of the room, wall elevations, and bottle capacities of the wine racks.

On this project, Vintage Cellars widened some of the racking sections and added new bottle openings for increased bottle capacity.

Elevation 1

Upon entering the wine cellar, the racking to your right is Elevation 1. A VC-style cover was placed at the top section to conceal the evaporator of the wine refrigeration system. Individual wooden wine racks were installed on both sides.

At the middle section, there were diamond bins, which allowed for bulk storage. Since the client collects large format bottles, Vintage Cellars needed to open up a couple of spaces below the diamond bins.

They added coved trays, which could store larger bottles (as big as 9 liters). They were designed to display two bottles in each section, in cascading heights. With this racking style, the wine labels can be seen easily. There’s no need to flip the bottles to see the content and description.

An LED lighting system was installed above the coved trays for a dramatic visual effect. This lighting system is a cost-savvy option because it consumes less energy than other types of bulbs. LED lights are also known for their longer lifespan. When it comes to safety, they can protect your collection because of their low heat emission.

In the next area of this custom wine cellar in La Jolla, California, Vintage Cellars installed three columns of horizontal display wine racks. This section has a depth of 4 ¾ inches and has solid sides and fixed coved trays. Since the bottles were stored on their sides, the wine labels were facing out.

With a depth of 8 ¼ inches, the middle section of this racking was designed to provide space for the client’s mini car and decanter collection. The glass shelves are adjustable for easy organization. To highlight and add appeal to this area of the cellar, mirror and lighting were installed at the back.

Now, the racking in Elevation 2 can accommodate 117 magnums and 36 standard bottles.

Elevation 3

For the next wall, Vintage Cellars added three more sections of custom cabinets with scalloped neck supports and two sets of single bottle wine racks. After the expansion of the racking, the racking in Elevation 3 can hold 384 standard bottles in individual racks and 34 bottles in the custom cabinets.

The weight of the cabinetry was very heavy. To ensure that the racking would not give up, Vintage Cellars installed large steel supports under the double-deep tabletop. The big space below the tabletop provided an excellent storage area for the client’s wines in boxes.

Elevations 4 and 5

The racking in the last two walls of the wine room was also expanded. In Elevation 4, the wine racks can now accommodate 98 magnum bottles. Another VC-style cover grill, which hides another wine cooling evaporator, was installed at the top section.

After adding new sections, Elevation 5 now provides bottle openings for 288 wines in individual racks, 26 in the custom cabinets, and 16 in the coved trays.

Hook Ladders for Easy Access of Wines in La Jolla, California Home Wine Cellars

It’s difficult to access wines placed in high areas of the wine racks. To provide the client convenience, Vintage Cellars added a hook ladder during the first installation of this home wine cellar in La Jolla, California.

This type of ladder can be transferred from one wall to another wall through a railing that is attached to the racking. The owner needs to lift it if he wants to access hard-to-reach bottles in another room.

Since the ladder was very tall, it would also be difficult to move it to another area in the cellar. Vintage Cellars decided to add a second ladder to allow easy access to the wines.

Coastal Custom Wine Cellars Completes a Construction Project in Irvine, California

A storage structure uniquely designed by Coastal Custom Wine Cellars for a client in Irvine, Orange County, California.

An ideal custom wine cellar is a storage room that is not only functional and dependable, but also masterfully designed. Since the storage structure will serve as a display room for prized wine collections, it should be built beautifully. Coastal Custom Wine Cellars, one of the top builders in California, recently completed a construction project in Irvine, a city in Orange County, California. The client wanted a residential cellar built that could accommodate wine bottles of various sizes. He also wanted his storage room to have an area for keeping liquor rather than wine. Coastal’s team of specialists designed and built the home cellar according to the client’s needs and style preferences. 

Uniquely Designed Residential Custom Wine Cellar in Irvine, California

Coastal Custom Wine Cellars successfully completed a construction project in Irvine. The client wanted a uniquely designed residential wine cellar built. He wanted his storage room to be able to accommodate an assortment of wine bottle sizes. The team of expert builders from Coastal began creating the structure while adhering to the client’s design specifications.

Custom-Made Wine Racks and Displays Designed for Large Format Bottles

The client keeps his Bourbon collection, together with his prized wines, in this beautiful residential cellar.

The client specified that his home custom wine cellar would not only store wine, but also other types of liquor. He wanted to have a space in the storage room reserved for his Bourbon collection. To meet the client’s request, the team of builders from Coastal included open bins on the cellar’s right side. These specially made bins were designed for storing other types of beverages rather than wine.

On the left side of the cellar, the builders created a display row that could store large format wine bottles. Label-forward spaces were included, so that bottles can simply be cradled in the shelves. The racks can accommodate a wide range of bottle sizes, anywhere from 1.5-liter to 12-liter bottles. Both the left and the right sides of the wine room have shelves that were designed for magnum-sized bottles. The style of the racking in this Irvine home wine cellar is perfect for wine enthusiasts who enjoy collecting bottles of various sizes.

Large format bottles that range from 1.5 liters to 12 liters can safely be cradled on these shelves.

There is a beautiful tabletop in the middle area of the residential cellar. Above this tabletop is a gorgeous arch, and instead of a stemware rack, the arch has an inset on both its left and right sides. Each of these inset spaces is designed to hold wine glasses, upside down, by their bases. Each inset space can accommodate up to four wine glasses. A set of drawers is also included below the tabletop. The client stores wine tasting essentials, like napkins and corkscrews, in these drawers.

The lighting in this Irvine custom wine cellar is stellar. Besides the rich and vibrant lights that illuminate the entire room, the concealed lighting adds a touch of elegance to the racking and makes the displays pop out grandiosely.

The success of this residential wine cellar project is brought about by the healthy working relationship between the client and the contractor. There was adequate planning before the construction commenced, and there was open communication throughout the duration of the project. Since the client’s house was near the main office of Coastal Custom Wine Cellars, the storage specialists were able to visit the area easily. The expert builders were able to take accurate measurements of the space, thoroughly discuss with the client his options, present various wood finish samples, and provide as much comprehensive advice as needed. Because of this good working relationship, the client’s needs and design preferences were sufficiently met from the start of the construction until the end of the project.

perature and humidity in the cellar, and it can consequently cause the spoilage of the wines stocked inside. Besides dependability and functionality, a custom cellar door should also be beautifully made. A well-designed door can increase the aesthetic appeal of a wine storage structure. Coastal Custom Wine Cellars designed and installed the door for the Irvine home wine room.

The residential wine cellar door was made of wrought iron and had impeccable design details of grape clusters and vines. The door was about eight feet tall and it had a stellar radius top. The door’s design is called “The Huntington,” which was originally drawn by one of Coastal’s clients in Huntington Beach. Many other clients fell in love with the design, and that is why it has been used many times in other wine rooms.

Coastal Custom Wine Cellars offers their clients a wide range of choice in door sizes, shapes, and styles. Their installation services include the setting up of the door’s casement moldings, dual pane glass, weather stripping, jamb, and self-sealing bottom.

A Master Builder Transformed a Basement into a Gorgeous Custom Wine Cellar in Vancouver

Written by

It’s not impossible to transform an area in your home into a unique storage space for your wines. Working with a reliable builder in Vancouver will ensure that your custom wine cellar will store and display your collection according to your specific requirements. Check out how Blue Grouse Wine Cellars built an eye-catching wine room in a basement.

If you are collecting wines, the first thing that you must consider is providing them with a safe storage space where they can age gracefully.

A stable environment will help wine preserve its complex taste and aroma, allowing it to reach its peak maturation before it is consumed. This will let you enjoy every bottle of your favorite vintage.

For many homeowners, the aesthetic appeal of their wine cellar also matters. They want their collections to be displayed dramatically, according to their personal preference.

A safe storage space and beautiful wine display are the reasons why many residential owners invest in a climate-controlled custom wine cellar. In addition, if you have a growing collection, converting a space in your home can be the best solution.

Blue Grouse Wine Cellars, one of our partners in building custom wine cellars, recently completed an installation project in Vancouver.

Transformation of a Basement into a Visually Appealing Home Wine Cellar

Wine Cellar Room Before Construction Began

Wine Cellar Room Before Construction Began

After a careful assessment of the client’s needs, Blue Grouse Wine Cellars created custom 3-dimensional drawings that showed the dimensions of the room, different elevations, and plan views.

They made sure that the room can achieve optimum conditions by sealing it and installing an efficient wine cooling system. They installed beautiful, high quality wine racks made from wood and metal.

The basement had a couple of wine cabinets and a heavy pool table in it, which were transferred to a room upstairs before the construction began.

One of the challenges in this Vancouver home wine cellar project was the window to the outdoors. Light must be prevented from coming through the window because it can damage wine. To achieve this, Blue Grouse Wine Cellars built a wall in front of it.

Insulating the Wine Room and Installing an Efficient Cooling System to Protect Wine

ONAM CW-30W Water-Cooled Wine Cellar Cooling Unit

After the client’s approval, they started the construction by installing the proper insulation. Insulating the walls and ceiling will prevent the warm air from entering and the cool air from escaping the room. The absence of proper insulation will negatively affect the quality of the wine.

Additionally, this can also result in the breakdown of your cooling unit and higher energy bills, because it will work harder due to the warm air that interferes with the cooling process.

Blue Grouse Wine Cellars needed to take down the drywall on the walls and ceiling because the original room was not built to be a wine cellar. After installing the insulation, they put up the new type of drywall, which was intended for a refrigeration wine storage area.

They also used the same process of insulating and dry walling the room that can be accessed through a small door. This space is located under the stairs, and Blue Grouse made it a “secret” wine storage space to provide additional bottle capacity.

In addition to insulation, they also installed a reliable refrigeration unit. The ONAM CW30-W water-cooled cooling system was the ideal choice for the wine cellar. This self-contained unit did not require an HVAC professional to do the installation.

Wine Racks – Combining Wood and Metal to Create a Unique Wine Display

Blue Grouse Wine Cellars aims to create a wine rack system that will display their client’s collection beautifully and safely. In this project, the owner is a high-end wine collector who wanted a traditional yet contemporary home wine cellar.

With their extensive experience, passion, and creativity, Blue Grouse Wine Cellars was able to create a stylish wine storage space using wood and metal to satisfy their client’s needs.

Custom Wooden Wine Racks

Wine collectors who want a traditional wine room should opt for wooden storage racks. At Blue Grouse Wine Cellars, they offer various types of wood to cater to the specific needs of their customers.

In this project, they used Sapele, a hardwood species that belongs to the Mahogany family. It is widely used by many builders to add drama to a living space because of its attractive grain patterns and natural luster.

It is harder than other wood varieties because of its interlocking grain pattern. Other properties of Sapele Mahogany that make it an ideal material for wine cellar racks include the ability to withstand humid conditions. It also has a high resistance to rot and has superior stability.

The wooden wine racks were not lacquered or stained because the owner wanted a scent-free Vancouver custom wine cellar.

Various Racking Styles to Create an Elegant Wine Display

Blue Grouse Wine Cellars has extensive experience in providing innovative storage solutions to wine enthusiasts. In this project, they incorporated different bottle orientations to store the client’s collection in a unique way and provide added functionality.

Elevation B

Wood Racking Wine Cellar Drawings Vancouver Project

Elevation B Wine Cellar Drawing Vancouver Installation Project

The first racking that greets you as you enter the wine room from the basement hallway is labeled Elevation B. It starts with a 5-level quarter round display rack, which allows for bottles to be displayed vertically. It also provides a space for storing wine glasses, decanters, and other accessories.

The next wine rack is intended for single bottle storage at the top section and a display row in the middle. This row stores the bottle at a 15-degree angle to prevent the cork from drying out. The cork will become brittle if it dries out. When this happens, an unwanted amount of oxygen can get in the bottle and cause the wine to be oxidized. Oxidation will spoil the wine and causes a waste of investment.

At the bottom section is where the hidden storage area is located. Blue Grouse Wine Cellars covered it with a removable wooden louvered grill to make it look like part of the racking. A wine refrigeration unit and proper insulation were installed to ensure that optimum storage conditions are achieved. There are wooden case lattice racks and half lattice diamond bins on both sides of the secret wine room.

Elevations A and E

To provide the client a convenient area for decanting and serving wine, Blue Grouse Wine Cellars created an open area with a wide tabletop at the center. Individual bottle and label forward display racks were installed on both sides of the open area.

The center of the bottom section consists of lattice diamond bins, half diamond bins, and case storage racks on both sides.

The next wall is Elevation E, which consists of the same bottle orientations as Elevation B. The only different is that it has no quarter round display rack.

Elevations C and D

When you enter the door from the outdoors, you will see Elevation D, located on the right wall. Half lattice and wood case storage can be found at the bottom and a display row at the middle section. More individual bottle openings were added at the top section of the racking.

The next wall is Elevation C, which faces the door. The wine rack, which is 54 1/4 inched deep, hides the wine cooling unit in a custom cabinet at the bottom. It also provides a horizontal display area for six large format bottles.

Cotemporary Metal Wine Racks from Vintage View

Incorporating metal racking satisfied the desire of the client to have a traditional and modern wine cellar.  A 3-column single-deep metal wine rack from VintageView was installed on the left wall when you enter from the hallway.

A 4-column triple-deep VintageView wine rack is on the left wall when you enter the wine room through the door from the outside.

The sleek metal wine storage units were finished in Satin Black.

Smart Choice of Wine Cellar Cooling System and Racking Design for a California Home

Standard air conditioners don’t have the capacity to maintain a stable environment which is required for wine. A wine refrigeration system manufactured by a highly reputable company should be installed in your wine room to prevent damaging the quality of your wine.

In California, Coastal Custom Wine Cellars used a CellarPro cooling unit in building a beautiful home wine cellar. They also have competent experts of wine cellar service providers in Orange County. Learn how they transformed a playroom into a wine storage display that has style and elegance, using custom features. 

Home Wine Cellar Cooling and Racking Solution for a California Home

On the 23rd of July 2015, Coastal Custom Wine Cellars began the construction project for a home in Anaheim Hills, California. The clients had a large basement where their children’s playroom was located.

They wanted to transform it into a climate-controlled wine cellar using wood and metal racks. They also wanted to add a cigar humidor within the racking. Read on to find out how this was accomplished.

Protecting the Client’s Collection by Using an Efficient Wine Cellar Cooling System

Master wine cellar builders don’t just use a home air conditioning system for their client’s wine room. Wine easily spoils when it is kept in a poor environment.

Coastal Custom Wine Cellars, a trusted partner of WholeCellar, have been using CellarPro cooling solutions in their projects in California, Maryland, and New Jersey. We work together to install the appropriate wine cellar refrigeration system to achieve the optimum storage conditions.

Wine Cellar Insulation

Home Wine Cellar Insulation California Project

At Coastal Custom Wine Cellars, it is their utmost consideration to preserve the quality of your wine until it is consumed because, for them, your happiness is their happiness. They take time and effort to prevent extreme changes in temperature and humidity levels which can ruin your wine. Imagine enjoying the complex flavor and aroma of the wine that has reached its peaked maturation in your refrigerated wine cellar.

Coastal Custom Wine Cellars insulated the walls and ceiling to ensure that there was no air leakage to or from the wine cellar. With proper insulation, wine storage problems can be avoided. Additionally, it will prevent the cooling unit from working harder than it should. Meaning, creating an airtight seal will not only protect the wine’s quality, but can also help reduce energy consumption.

Wine Cellar Cooling System

California Wine Cellar Cooling System

California Wine Cellar Cooling System

In this installation project in Anaheim Hills, California, Coastal Custom Wine Cellars conducted a heat load calculation to analyze the BTU (British Thermal Unit) requirement because the room had to be enclosed in glass and it is nearly 1,300 cubic feet. In running a heat load, temperature changes and the size of the room must be considered.

They used  the CellarPro 8000S ductless split wine cellar cooling system. The wall-mounted evaporator was placed inside the cellar while the condenser was placed outdoors.

To protect the condenser from weather conditions, they added an exterior housing.

Glass Walls and Door

Seamless glass walls and door are recommended for collectors who want to have a good view of their wines from outside the cellar. Additionally, glass panels also add a modern appeal to any living space. Coastal Custom Wine Cellars used tempered glass panels, and they had to install the frameless glass very carefully to create an airtight seal around the door.

Coastal Custom Wine Cellars offers a free 3-dimensional design package. These drawings include the perimeter of the room, different elevations, plan views, and bottle capacities, which allow the owner to visualize their dream wine cellar before the build begins.

For this room conversion project, they have designed a wine rack system that can store up to 2,055 bottles.

Metal Racking Design

On the wall where the door is located, they installed floor-to-ceiling height metal storage racks from Vintage View. This section can hold up to 852 bottles. One of the advantages of using Vintage View metal wine racks is the convenience in finding a certain type of wine because they display the bottles in a label forward orientation. You don’t need to pull out a bottle just to see the label.

The open airflow design of these wine racks distributes the liquid temperature more efficiently. The metal wine rack system is recommended for those who want to achieve a contemporary appeal in their California home wine cellar.

Wooden Wine Racks

When you enter the room, you will see that the left wall starts with a quarter round display wooden wine rack. This storage unit has five shelves, which provides an excellent storage place for some of the owner’s favorite vintages and wine accessories.

The next set racking consists of diamond bins at the bottom. The top section has a tabletop for decanting and serving wine.

Back Wall Wine Rack with Cigar Humidor

The back wall is where the core racking was installed directly across from the metal racks on the glass wall. Coastal Custom Wine Cellars combined various orientations to add character to the overall design.

The top section stores the bottles individually. The center of the back wall racking has an open area. It provides a space for the wine glasses, where the owner can hang them upside down in a stem rack. This design allowed Coastal Custom Wine Cellars to hide the evaporator that was used to cool the playroom.

Both sides of the open area consist of a display row with lighting. The bottom section has double-deep wine racks with a tabletop for decanting wines. Most of the openings are intended for 750ml bottles.  Both sides of the bottom racking consist of a double-deep wood case storage.

Cigar Humidor Anaheim California Custom Wine Cellar Project

Cigar Humidor Anaheim California Custom Wine Cellar Project

The double-deep cigar humidor cabinet is located just below the open area at the center of the back wall. Unlike California home wine cellars, which require about 55-65 degrees Fahrenheit to preserve the quality of wine, cigar humidors need a warmer environment.

Therefore, they installed weather stripping on all sides of the cabinet door to achieve a bit higher temperature in it, about 70 degrees.  

Coastal lined the humidor with Spanish Cedar because this wood variety can help create a higher temperature and humidity level in the cabinet.

Coastal Custom Wine Cellars created a 4-level tray on the left cabinet. The lowest level has a tray for displaying the owner’s cigars individually. On the right is a standard cabinet where other items can be displayed.

Awesome Transformation of a Spare Room into a Custom Wine Cellar and Tasting Room in Flower Mound, Texas

The sidewalls (elevation A) consist of individual bottle slots at the top section and solid diamond bins at the bottom. The middle section is a high reveal display row that stores the bottles at a 15-degree angle.

This bottle orientation allows the owner to highlight some of his favorite vintages. Additionally, it also helps keep the cork moist by allowing the wine to be in contact with the cork.

When dried out, the cork might get brittle and shrink, causing an unwanted amount of air to mix with the wine. This can affect the wine’s taste and aroma.

Corner Walls

To achieve a smooth transition from one wall to another, a true-radius curved corner wine rack was installed on each end of the back wall. The high reveal display row, which lines the length of the whole racking, is installed with a light valance above it.

Back Wall

At the back wall (elevation C) of this home wine cellar, Wine Cellar Specialists included a solid arch at the center. There is a puck light installed above it. Above the arch are horizontal wine racks that can accommodate magnum size bottles. The rest of the top racking consists of storage slots for individual bottles.

There is a tabletop installed from the left to the right corner of the back wall. It is made from the inner portions of reclaimed wine barrels.

It is called the Infusion style tabletop, which exhibits the color of the wines that were once stored in the barrels. Since no two barrel planks are exactly the same, this feature added a unique touch to the custom wine cellar in Flower Mound, Texas.

Below the tabletop are six double deep X-bins. There are six rolling case storage slots below the X-bins, which provide quick access to the cases stored at the back areas.

Quality and Attractive Wood Variety for the Wine Racks

For wine collectors who want to achieve a classic look in their wine rooms, wooden wine racks are recommended. Wood’s natural beauty can enhance the beauty of a wine cellar. They can also go well with the existing décor of your living space.

In this project, Wine Cellar Specialists used All Heart Redwood for the storage racks. In addition to its natural beauty, this type of wood is stable, and highly resistant to shrinkage, insects, molds, and mildew. In addition, it has natural wood preservatives that make it a favorite material in wine rack construction.

All Heart Redwood is ideal for refrigerated custom wine cellars in Flower Mound, Texas because it has the ability to withstand the extreme changes in temperature and humidity.

Your wine cellar should not only keep your wine safe and beautify your home, but it should also provide convenience in accessing your bottles.

In this project, a library ladder was included to allow the owner quick access to wines stored in high areas of the racking. It is made from All Heart Redwood, coated with chocolate brown powder, and comes with Starburst wheels. The ladder rail is attached to a 4-inch solid wood panel on the racking.

Wine Tasting Room and Bar Area

Wine Cellar Specialists built an adjoining wine tasting room and bar area. This is a great addition to the home, allowing the owner to have a nice area for entertaining friends and hosting wine tasting parties.

Custom Features

The walls and ceiling of the tasting room is designed with Stonecoat. This a material made from crushed limestone that is blown on to the surface. After the application, it is then hand carved and colored according to the client’s preference.

Made from Knotty Alder, the home bar consists of open shelves on the left and right sides. The shelves have racks for the glassware. There is a lighted cabinet at the center of the bar. The bottom section has a built-in refrigerator (Uline brand 3036 model) with two drawers above it. The refrigerator has solid cabinets on both sides.

The glass panels are dual paned. The wine cellar door is equipped with full weather stripping and an automatic door bottom.

A Playa Vista Wine Cellar Under Stairs Project Shows its Creativity

Written by

Playa Vista Under stair wine cellar blueprint

This is blueprint to Playa Vista under stair wine cellar project

There are projects that the Whole Cellar team is particularly proud of, not just because of how they were able to implement it, but because of the difficulty they experienced in achieving that perfect job. The Playa Vista wine cellar under stairs project is one of those jobs.

Why was it singled out among the many projects the team completed, you might ask? Well, it has to do with the “unusual” wine cellar area proposed by this client to be turned into a wine cellar: underneath the stairs of his house. Yes, the picture you are seeing above really was the area where he was asking the team to set up a wine storage area in his home. As you can imagine, there were a lot of structural hindrances that the team had to consider before drawing up a plan for the project in the first place.

But hey, Whole Cellar did not win the Best of Houzz 2015 awards for nothing; the team is well-accustomed to accepting challenging jobs that require a high quality of craftsmanship, and the Playa Vista project proved no different. Read on to discover how they took up  the challenge; the process is documented below!

Is it ‘Cool’ Enough?

Even though this was the first time the client had requested that contractor provide him with a wine cellar, he had an impressive knowledge of wine storage principles that he was already portraying. For one, he already owned a standalone refrigerated cabinet by Le Cache, and he knew that a standing temperature of 57-degree Fahrenheit was needed to ensure that his fine wine collection matured properly. Of course, it just so happened that the space underneath the stairway was the only place available for this purpose.

Los Angeles Home Wine Cellars – Playa Vista Project
Wine refrigeration systems can be notoriously bulky. The original idea of making a glass wall enclosure–on which the front of it was supposed to be refrigerated–in the area underneath the stairs was quite improbable for this project. And, not to mention, very costly too.

However, since the client already owns a single refrigeration system, the team suggested he move 200 of his fine wine bottle collection to the Le Cache refrigerator and leave the rest of his collection to be stored “passively”–that is, to be put inside the wine cellar for the sole means of displaying it to visitors.

The client agreed to the idea, and then the team set about designing the wine racks that would be used for the cellar.

A Mix-and-Match of Racks

Under the stairs wine cellar Playa Vista before completion

This is the Playa Vista under the stairs wine cellar project before completion.

As you can see from the picture above, the Whole Cellar team had to account for the slope of the stairway above the area, in order to design the wine rack accordingly. They also decided to include some “elements” from popular wine rack designs like diamond bins and rectangular storage bins to create a custom wine rack that is truly one of a kind.

Since one of the main purposes of this wine cellar project was to display the client’s wine bottle collection, having a high-reveal display row was of the utmost importance for the rack. Pitched at a fifteen-degree angle, this angle afforded the wine rack a sleek and thoroughly modern look.

All openings in this wine rack were also made to be “universal”; in other words, it has been designed to be wide enough for just about any large wine bottles like champagnes or burgundies to be stored inside it.  A modified countertop was also included in the design of the wine rack so as to allow people a simple “table” where they can set wine bottles or glasses, in case they would like to have an impromptu wine tasting session.

Finally, the wine rack came in an Alder wood design, and it was finished off with a rustic stain look that perfectly matched the flooring in the rest of the house.

A Unique Addition to the Whole Cellar Portfolio

The client was very pleased with how the Playa Vista wine cellar under stairs project turned out after three months of hard work.

The lower section of the racking consists of the diamond bins, which are intended for bulk storage.

The focal point of the room is the back wall. It has a beautiful backsplash, made from reclaimed wood. This eco-friendly feature adds visual appeal to the Vancouver home wine cellar.

Tips on Starting a Wine Cellar in Orange County, California

Written by

Wine needs an effective wine storage solution. If you plan to start a wine collection of your own, you should invest in a good wine storage solution. Here are some tips when starting your own wine cellar in Orange County, California.

Why a Wine Cellar is Essential to Every Wine Collection

There is no point to starting a wine collection if you do not have an effective wine storage solution. Wine is a beverage that can easily go bad if it is not stored properly. Among the different kinds of wine storage solutions, a wine cellar is the most ideal type. Have a wine cellar built in your own home, to make sure that your wines are safe and aging tastefully. This article will discuss a few of the Dos and Don’ts when it comes to starting a residential wine cellar in Orange County, California.

Keep your wine collection in a beautiful wine cellar in California

The Dos of Starting a Residential Custom Wine Cellar in Orange County, CA

When you’re starting your own home wine cellar in Orange County, here are some things that you should do:

1. Do Have an Estimate of the Size of Your Wine Collection

One of the essential considerations when planning to build a wine cellar is how big you want to be. The size of a home custom wine cellar depends on how much room you need for wine storage. Have a realistic estimate of the amount of wine you intend to collect. Some people are satisfied having 5 to 10 bottles, but there are those who collect upward of a thousand wines. It is also recommended to anticipate the growth of your wine collection. Build your wine cellar with adequate space to accommodate a growing wine collection. Generally, most people need more space than they first thought.

2. Do Apply Proper Insulation to Your Wine Cellar

A climate controlled environment is a vital aspect of proper wine storage. Fluctuating temperature and humidity levels are one of the worst enemies of wine. Regardless of how expensive your temperature control equipment is, or how efficient your wine cellar cooling unit is, if you have not applied proper insulation within your wine storage room, you can never achieve consistent temperature and humidity levels. The mylar or bubble wrap insulation is becoming more common these days, because it has no nasty glass fibers for your to worry about, and it gives a good R rating without taking up much volume.

Ideally, there are two common methods for applying vapor barriers and insulating wine storage rooms, and these are spray foam or a 6 mil vapor barrier and fiberglass batts. Although spray foam is more costly, it does prevent any possibility of puncturing a vapor barrier by a screw, running wire or with plumbing inserted during the cellar construction. With non-shrinking closed cell spray foam, screws or any object that punctures will not compromise the enclosure. The foam will simply expand to fill all the crevices, to ensure a tight seal in the wine storage room. There is no need for a 6 mil vapor barrier when using spray foam. Regardless of what method you use, make sure that there are no air gaps in between the insulation and drywall.

3. Do Remember that Balance is Essential in a Wine Collection

Many wine experts advise novice wine collectors not to start their wine collection for aging wines. Instead, start a collection for drinking, or else you will be stealing from your future stocks as early as the first year from when you started. Moreover, make sure that at least some of the wine in your residential custom wine cellar is for guests and not just for your own enjoyment. You want to make sure that when you have friends and guests visit, you can entertain them with some of your wine. Lastly, your collection should include both wines that are ready to drink, and wines that are to be opened when they have reached maturity.

4. Do Keep in Mind that Your Taste Will Change

It is said that when you start your wine collection, start first with wines that appeal to your taste. You do not need to rely on reviews and other people’s opinions of what good wine is. Although this is true, you should keep in mind that your taste in wine will change. It is important to make sure to leave room for whole new regions and styles of wine. But then again, just like tip number 4, keep in mind not to stock too heavily in any one area.

5. Do Choose a Wine Racking System that Offers Flexibility

When choosing wine racks for your custom wine cellar in Orange County, California, choose those that can cater to wine bottles of different sizes. It can be very frustrating to buy a case of magnums, Champagnes and other large-sized wine bottles, only to find that you wine racking system can only cater to regular sized wine bottles.

The Don’ts of Starting a Home Custom Wine Cellar in Orange County, CA

The following are tips on what NOT to do when starting your own home wine cellar:

1. Don’t Build Your Custom Wine Cellar Just Anywhere

Wines are easily damaged by heat. Therefore, it is imperative that you do not have your home custom wine cellar built in an area close to a source of heat, like a water heater or a stove. Consider carefully the location of your wine cellar before beginning its construction.

Too much vibration is another thing that can negatively affect your wines. Although  not disastrous, too much vibration will keep the wine from aging well, because the process of long chain polymerization will be interrupted. Do not build your wine cellar near any appliance that produces vibration, like a washing machine. Also, wine cellars should ideally be constructed away from the area in your house where the center of activity is going on, like the living room.

2. Don’t Store Anything with Foul Odor Near Your Wine

This is something that is commonly overlooked when designing a wine cellar in California. Off smells can permeate the corks of wine, and alter its flavor negatively. Never store any paint, thinner, or any chemicals with foul odors near your wine. Also, the stains and finishes you choose to apply on your wine racks shouldn’t exude any strong odors.

3. Do Not Take for Granted the Design of Your Wine Cellar

Besides making sure that your wine cellar in Orange County, CA is functional, you should also give importance to its design. The aesthetic appeal of your wine cellar should be part of the considerations during the planning phase of your wine cellar construction. Have your wine cellar designed by a professional.
