The quarter round wine rack is followed by individual slots at the top section. The middle section is a display row that stores the bottles at a 15-degree angle. This bottle orientation prevents the cork from drying out.
When the cork dries out, it becomes brittle and may cause an unwanted amount of oxygen to get in the bottle and mix with the wine. When this happens, oxidation occurs, resulting in wine spoilage.
The bottom section of elevation B (below the display row) is the secret wine storage space that goes into an area beneath the stairs in the adjoining room. To make it look like a part of the racking, Blue Grouse Wine Cellars covered it with a removable wooden louvered grill. To make sure that the hidden space could provide wine the perfect storage environment, a refrigeration system was installed.
Other racking orientations at the bottom section include wooden case lattice wine racks, half lattice diamond bins, and more individual openings for standard bottles.
Elevations A and E
After Elevation B is Elevation A, where an opening and a wide tabletop was installed at the center, to provide the owners a convenient place for decanting and serving wine. Both sides of the opening consist of single bottle wine racks and label forward display rows.
At the bottom section, the center of the racking consists of lattice diamond bins, with case storage racks and half diamond bins on both sides.
Elevation E is the next wall. It contains the same wine rack design as Elevation B, except for the quarter round storage unit.
Elevation C and D
The right wall as you enter the door from the outside of the wine cellar is labeled Elevation D. The top section is intended for storing individual bottles, and the middle section is a display row.
At the bottom, half lattice and wood case storage were installed. The connecting wall is the Elevation C, which contains the wine cooling unit, which is concealed in a custom cabinet at the bottom.
Above the cabinet is a horizontal display rack for large format bottles. Both sides of the cabinet consist of column wine racks with a display row in the middle.
Metal Wine Racks Add Contemporary Appeal to Vancouver Custom Wine Cellars
Blue Grouse Wine Cellars offers the metal racking system for clients who want to add a modern feel in their wine room. In this project, they added VintageView metal wine racks on the first wall as you enter from the hallway. It is a 3-column single-deep racking.
Another set of metal racks was installed on the left wall when you go in through the exterior door. It is a 4-column triple-deep storage unit.All the metal wine racks are finished in Satin Black.
Ideal Wine Refrigeration and Lighting System
For this custom wine cellar project in Vancouver, Blue Grouse Wine Cellars used the ONAM CW30-W water-cooled cooling system to prevent temperature fluctuations and variable humidity levels. This self-contained wine cooling system does not require an HVAC technician for installation.
To illuminated the room and the bottles, LED pot lights were installed in the ceiling and LED strip lights over the high reveal display rows.
