The owner of one of the most prestigious restaurants in Richardson, Texas, needed help in building a modern and impressive wine cellar next to the bar and dining area. The owner wanted to attract customers to purchase their wines. For many years, Wine Cellar Specialists, one of our dealers in wine cellar construction, has been helping commercial establishments that sell wine, boost their sales.
How a Well-Designed Wine Cellar Can Benefit Restaurants in Richardson, Texas
Commercial wine cellars are in demand, not only in restaurants, but also in hotels, bars, and retail stores. The benefits they offer to the owners include proper product presentation, better organization of wines, optimum storage, and increased revenue.
Eye-Catching Product Presentation and Improved Overall Wine Sales
If you’re a restaurant owner, a proper and exceptional presentation of wines will help drive more sales by attracting potential customers. A mediocre wine display will not catch the attention of the clients.
They may dine in your restaurant, but may not take the time to check out the wines stored on regular shelves in the bar area.
With a stunning wine display, you are providing the diners a good perception of your products. It will encourage them to take a look at your wines in stock and may end up in a purchase.
Better Organization of Wines and Maximum Storage Capacity
Experts don’t recommend storing bottles in cardboard boxes or ordinary shelves in your restaurant. You can better organize your wines in stock according to size or variety if you have a well-designed racking system.
Commercial wine racks will maximize the storage capacity of your space. Ask your builder to customize your racking, so it perfectly fits your wine room and the various bottle sizes in your collection.
Installation of a Modern Wine Cellar for Jasper’s Restaurant at Cityline in Richardson, Texas
Wine Cellar Specialists, an experienced builder of wine rooms, recently completed a contemporary wine cellar installation project in Jasper’s Restaurant. They had to utilize the room next to the bar and dining area of the establishment. The wine room can display a total of 864 bottles lying on their sides.
The architect of the restaurant provided Wine Cellar Specialists with the dimensions of the room. The features of the wine cellar include black anodized aluminum framing, sleek metal racking, and glass enclosure (dual panes and tempered).
Sleek Wine Rack Features for a Small Wine Room
The type of wine racks you use to showcase wine products has a significant impact on the overall sales of the restaurant. At Wine Cellar Specialists, they always make sure they provide a racking solution that will suit the size of the room and aesthetic needs of the client.
On this project, they utilized Platinum Series metal wine racks from Vintage View.
Metal is the most suitable material for commercial wine displays. Its minimalist appeal can bring any-sized room into a wine cellar that can “wow” customers.
Floor-to-Ceiling and Wall-Mounted Metal Wine Racks
When you enter this commercial wine cellar in Richardson, Texas, the first set of wine racks that greets you has a floor to ceiling height.
It is a triple-deep storage unit and is visible from the bar and dining area. At the other side of the glass panel is a single-bottle deep storage rack.
When facing the front racking, the wall on the left consists of wall-mounted metal wine racks that are also 3-bottles deep. This type of racking (wall-mounted) can bring any bare wall to life.
Additionally, it does not occupy floor space, making it ideal for tiny wine rooms. At the back section of the wall is another single-deep wine rack, also mounted on the left wall.
Advantages of Vintage View Metal Wine Racks
Vintage View is one of the most reliable providers of innovative racking solutions.
Their wine racks suit the needs of restaurant owners who want to have a wine cellar with contemporary features.
When it comes to durability, Vintage View wine rack systems are a top choice.
Their label forward orientation provides easy access to wines. Since the wine labels are facing out, the customers don’t need to spend much time looking for a specific type of wine.
With other wine rack designs, which hide the labels, the clients will need to pull out the bottle from the rack. This will disturb the wine’s sediments and may alter its flavors.
Moreover, Vintage View wine storage units also provide convenience for easy wine inventory and management.
Efficient Cooling Unit for Proper Preservation of Wine
Every cellar must have a reliable climate control system to ensure that the wines will reach proper maturation. Without it, wine on sale will deteriorate easily. When this happens, your restaurant will have a bad reputation to clienteles.
Customers who bought a bad bottle of wine from your restaurant may never purchase again in the future. They may even spread the news to their friends and colleagues.
This will have a negative effect on your business profit. It is very important that you seek the help of a wine storage expert to help maintain a stable environment in your wine cellar. After all, the quality of your products will reflect your business.
A careful assessment of the client’s needs helped Wine Cellar Specialists determine the correct cooling system for Jasper’s Restaurant walk-in wine storage room.
Ducted –Split Wine Refrigeration System
The refrigeration unit used for this commercial wine cellar construction project in Richardson, Texas, was the HS (High Static Series) 10000 model manufactured by US Cellar Systems. It is a ducted split system, so there was a need to connect the unit to ductwork.
Wine Cellar Specialists placed the evaporator above the ceiling for ease of maintenance. This also helped maximize the room’s capacity because the equipment does not occupy any space in the cellar. The supply and return vent are also in the ceiling.
A ducted split wine cooling system is also recommended for restaurant owners who don’t want a visible piece of equipment in their cellar. Since the compressor (the noisier component of the refrigeration system) is on the upper level of the restaurant, there is minimal noise in the cellar.
