Wines Need a Wine Cellar that has a Quality Wine Cellar Cooling System
Wines require a climate-controlled environment in order for to properly develop their flavor and aroma over time. They must be stored in a place that is cool, dark and humid. If you want to start a wine collection, you need to invest in an effective wine storage solution. The most ideal place to store wines is in a residential wine cellar that has a quality wine cellar refrigeration system installed.
To make sure that your wine cellar is capable of providing the ideal storage conditions for your wines, you need to have it designed and built by an expert. One of the most trusted wine cellar construction companies in Florida is Wine Cellar International. Their wine cellars are among the most beautifully designed wine storage rooms out there. Moreover, they always make sure that the wine cellar cooling systems that they install in their wine rooms are manufactured only by the best in the industry. One of their partners is US Cellar Systems. US Cellars produces different kinds of wine cellar cooling units, that can meet various storage requirements.
One of the most successful wine storage construction projects in which US Cellars Systems and Wine Cellar International have teamed up was under taken in a home in North Bay Road, Miami Beach. The client’s house was recently renovated, and he wanted to have a contemporary-design and functional custom wine cellar constructed. As standard operating procedure, Wine Cellar International had their wine cellar experts meet with the client to discuss his storage needs and design preferences. After consolidating all of the gathered details, the client was provided with a 3D drawing of the wine cellar that was to be built.
Miami Residential Custom Wine Cellar Design Features
The wine racks were largely responsible for creating a contemporary and sophisticated look for the residential wine cellar. They were made of brushed stainless steel. Moreover, there was very limited space in the construction area, and so, to maximize the storage room, the wine racks were made equal to the ceiling’s height.
Wine racks can be configured to store bottles either vertically or horizontally. For this Miami Residential Wine Cellar, to make the wine labels visible to guests, the owner chose to have the his 3-bottle deep wine racking system on the left and right side walls,in order to store his wines in a horizontal position. Additionally, the lowest portion of the wine racks was designed to utilize case storage. Bin and bulk storage racks were also installed on the back wall of the wine room.
There are still many who underestimate the importance of properly insulating a wine storage room. More specifically, a lot of people do not realize how essential it is that the wine cellar walls, ceiling, and flooring have the right insulation, so that the temperature and humidity inside the storage room are kept at the ideal levels, with little to no fluctuation. In the Miami home custom wine cellar, recycled metal was the material used to properly insulate the floor, and to help create the contemporary ambiance that the client wanted.
To make the small space look larger, the wine cellar expert had reflective mirrors installed on the ceiling of the home wine cellar in Miami, Florida.
To accentuate the design of this beautiful wine cellar, the client had various wine cellar lights installed. Overhead directional lighting was included, so that the client’s favorite vintage wines could be attractively highlighted. Some accent lighting that sweeps across the whole wine storage space was also installed, on the wine cellar floor. For all the lighting fixtures in this Miami Florida residential wine cellar, LED lights were used. LED are the most ideal type of lights for wine cellars, because unlike other types of lights, LED lights do not emit excessive heat.
The Appropriate Wine Cellar Cooling Unit Installed
Wines are easily damaged when exposed to temperature and humidity levels that are too high or too low. A wine cellar, by itself, cannot provide wines with the ideal conditions that they need order to age and develop properly. It is imperative that a wine cellar cooling system is installed. Moreover, each wine cellar has different storage requirements, which are affected by various factors (such as the size of the storage room, the number of bottles stored, the type of insulation used,etc.). This is why you cannot have just any wine cellar refrigeration unit installed in your wine cellar. You need to have an expert determine the most appropriate wine cellar cooling unit for your wine storage room.
For the Miami Beach residential custom wine cellar designed and constructed by Wine Cellar International, a Rack Mounted (RM) series split wine cooling system, manufactured by US Cellar Systems, was installed. The cooling system’s evaporator was mounted above the wine cellar door and hidden from the view outside the residential wine cellar, while the condenser was placed outside. Condensers produce a lot of noise, and since this particular one was placed far from the wine storage room, the wines are protected from the vibrations caused by said noise. These vibrations would otherwise disturb the wines on a molecular level, and thereby prevent them from aging tastefully. Additionally, the client had a thermostat reader installed in the wine cellar, so as to easily monitor the temperature and humidity in the wine storage room.
