In this example of a recent project we installed in South Salem, New York, we show how it is possible to create a really good looking Custom Wine Cellar whilst keeping cost under control by using a mix of both Custom and Semi-Custom Wine Racking.
While this little wine room was roughly only six foot square, the end result is a respectable 828 bottle capacity with a good looking mix of wood case openings and standard 750ml racking along with a table top for serving and presenting wine. The custom work was used to create a rich feel and to incorporate the wine tasting table top. This is complemented by a great looking display opening for artwork surrounded by single bottle storage racking as the center piece when you walk into the room.
Complementing the back wall display to the left and right we have we have mirror image racking, featuring center diamond bins surrounded by both standard single bottle storage and a 15 degree display row. The 15 degree angle is ideal for displaying featured wines whilst at the same time storing it over long periods without allowing the corks to dry out risking the possibility of cork cracking and shrinking. The diamond bins are ideal for case lots of wine and the display rows perfect for featuring special collector wines from preferred vineyards.

As you can see from the video, the three dimensional drawings really help to visualize the ultimate look of the wine cellar prior to starting the build process.
The Wine Cellar Cooling System by WhisperKool
While this is a small wine room project, care was taken to make sure the room was adequately insulated including installing proper vapor barriers. Without this step condensation can form over time causing all kinds of moisture and mold issues. As this cellar is fully climate controlled with a WhisperKool Wine Cellar Cooling Unit Slimline 2500, the wine in it can be safely stored and allowed to age naturally in ideal conditions. These wine cellar cooling units are perfect for wine rooms up to 500 cubic feet in size. As you can see this wine refrigeration unit fitted snugly above the door out of sight of the casual observer.
The premium redwood wood species used for the racking is really quite beautiful with its natural tonal coloring. Left unfinished this wood species is both good looking and durable and ideal for a wine cellar.
We hope you will agree that being able to see the whole project with before and after photos really helps to see the creative process at work. It can be quite difficult to imagine a bare basement room which is as yet only framed, as a great looking dedicated Custom Wine Cellar.

The image below really shows off the Premium Redwood Wood Species used in this Cellar. Premium Redwood has a natural tonal look that complements any wine racking. It can be stained and or lacquered or even left unfinished as in this particular wine room. This wood species is ideal for wine rooms as it is durable and non-aromatic in its natural state.
This WhisperKool Cooling is one of our favorites for smaller wine cellars as it is inexpensive, reliable and easy to install. As you can see from the image below, if installed thoughtfully it is typically not even noticed. Its size and profile makes it ideal to fit above most doorways.
