Custom Wine Cellars Orange County CA – Traditional and Modern Design Combined

Custom wine cellars are the ideal wine storage facility for wine collectors.  They offer a lot of interesting design options, and an opportunity to incorporate personalized style specifications.

With custom wine cellars, traditional and modern designs can be combined.  Examples are wooden wine racks combined with metal wine racks, wrought iron glass wine cellar doors with a wooden frame, metal wine racks and wooden wine cellar flooring, and a lot more.

To better visualize a custom wine cellar with a mix of traditional and modern styles, let us take a look at this custom wine cellars Orange County CA project by Vintage Wine Cellars.

The design of this wine cellar is a very good example of both traditional and modern styles put in one wine storage space.  The design features include the following:

  • Wooden wine racks made of Sapele Mahogany
  • Stainless steel metal rods
  • Custom wine cellar doors with glass panels and wrought iron frames
  • Rolling library ladder made of Sapele Mahogany
  • Slim Line split wine cellar cooling unit covered with louvered grill
  • Concealed wine cellar lighting

Traditional Wooden Wine Racks – Custom Designed for a Striking Look

The Mahogany wine racks were given a dark walnut stain and a clear lacquer, creating a stunning finish.  Sapele Mahogany was chosen due to the material’s natural beauty, longevity, and compatibility with wood stains.

Sapele Mahogany has beautiful grain patterns, with a fine texture.  Its natural color ranges from golden brown to dark reddish brown.

Various custom wine racks were used to accommodate the storage needs and design specifications of the client.

These are double deep wine storage racks, solid diamond bins, and full pull out case drawers.

The solid diamond bins maximize the storage space, storing wine bottles one on top of the other.  Aside from its functionality, the diamond shape design of this custom wine rack adds character to the wine room.

The double deep wine storage racks also make the most out of the available storage space because they store bottles individually in a double deep format.

This means that two wine bottles can be stored in a row, front to back.

The full pull out case drawers store wine cases in a more presentable and organized way.

Aside from wine cases, they can also be used to store spirits and wine accoutrements, such as decanters, stoppers, and more.

Stainless Steel Metal Rods and Wrought Iron Wine Cellar Doors – Adding a Modern Touch

Stainless steel metal rods store wine bottles in a horizontal position, and in a three-bottle deep format.  This modern wine rack scheme complemented the traditional wine racks nicely.

The wrought iron wine cellar doors were installed to enclose the wine storage room, and maintain an air-tight seal.  The enclosure is made of two solid glass panels on opposite ends, and two glass wine cellar doors in the center, all of which had wrought iron frames.

The glass panel and glass wine cellar doors cover the full width of the opening, making everything inside the room readily visible.  This sight adds beauty to the interior of the home.

Wine Cellar Cooling Unit Covered with a Louvered Grill

This custom wine cellar would not be complete without a wine cellar cooling unit.  For this custom wine cellars Orange County CA project, a 10,200 BTU SLD split wine cellar cooling unit was installed.

This type of cooling unit has its evaporator and its condenser installed in separate locations, which is why it is classified as a ‘split’ cooling system.  It is recommended for custom wine cellars that require medium to high temperatures, such as this custom wine cellar in Orange County CA.

The SLD wine cellar cooling unit was mounted horizontally, on top of the wine racking at the left side of the wine cellar.  It was then covered with a louvered grill, made of Sapele Mahogany like the wooden wine racks.

The installation was undertaken by M&M Wine Cellar Cooling Systems Los Angeles CA, the contractor of choice in this particular project.

Designing the Custom Wine Cellar 

Before the actual construction, a 3D wine cellar rendering was created by Vintage Wine Cellars, in order for the client to better visualize the outcome of the project.  All of the elevations were shown in the drawings.

Since there are hard to reach areas in the wine cellar, a rolling library ladder was added to the design.  It is made of the same wood specie as that of the wooden wine racks.

Vintage Wine Cellars offers free design consultations and free wine cellar designs for their clients.  It is a family-owned business, with several years of experience in the wine cellar industry.
