High reveal display rows store wine bottles at a 15 degree angle, to allow continuous contact of cork with wine. This is very important in observing proper wine storage techniques that promote optimum wine aging.
A display with high reveal also promotes eye-level presentation of wine labels for better product recognition, as well as for easy perusal and selection. LED lighting is installed next to the light valance, casting a dramatic glow along the different wine selections placed on the display row.
Wine Storage Bins
Since the client loves to showcase his collection of wood cases, Coastal Custom Wine Cellar Builders California custom-designed an opening wine storage bin at the very bottom of the right side wall wine racking system to provide a space for his wood case collection.
As one comes toward the back wall of the Laguna Beach custom wine cellar conversion, the wall surface has odd corners and contours that would have made the installation of additional single bottle storage racks and high reveal display rows difficult. However, the wine cellar builders from Coastal Custom Wine Cellars CA did a wonderful job in creating a wine racking system that adjusted to the contours of the wall, for a smooth and flowing appearance.
An Arch on the Wall
Moving toward the right side of the wall, there are more single bottle storage racks that feature a high reveal display row. This particular wall features a standard arch with a stunning whittle board design and a solid tabletop, which serves as a work space for serving or decanting wines. The arch includes puck lighting, to accentuate the area.
Right above the regular arch is a horizontal opening, for storing large format bottles in a label forward orientation. Down below the solid tabletop area are additional bottle slots, to accommodate more standard 750 ml wine bottles.
Just below the high reveal display row are horizontal label forward openings that can fit just about any wine bottle size. For Bordeaux style bottles, each opening bin can store three deep, for a total of six bottles in this particular area.
Diamond bin components below the horizontal openings are included for bulk storage. These components are excellent management tools for storing 6 packs and 12 lots.
Track Lighting Fixture
A low track lighting fixture was provided by the client, and was affixed to the ceiling. The lighting system has directional features that can highlight and illuminate various areas in the residential wine cellar. In addition to the light fixture, the client also supplied the wood flooring and paint color.
The residential wine cellar was certainly an easy and fun project to work on. The Coastal team converted a small storage room into an 837-bottle capacity custom wine cellar. For wine cellar conversion projects, Coastal Custom Wine Cellar Builders would be glad to provide a free consultation and 3D design of the proposed wine storage space.
