The addition of a sophisticated wine enclave to a commercial layout can greatly enhance the aesthetic quality of the space. It will provide proper climate conditions for storing and showcasing different varieties of wines. A perfectly designed and constructed wine cellar will not only provide the maximum wine storage capacity, but also ease of bottle identification.
Coastal Custom Wine Cellars recently finished installing a wine cellar in one of Southern California’s finest country clubs. The project involved creating a climate controlled wine storage space that can hold a total of 1,380 bottles. The Coto de Caza Golf and Racquet Club wine cellar measures 11’ wide, 2’ deep, and 9’ tall, and features seamless ½” tempered glass walls, as well as floor to ceiling metal wine racking.
The Coto de Caza Golf and Racquet Club is a private 36-hole country club located in Orange County, California. The country club has a 44,000 square foot clubhouse that can host wedding receptions, business meetings, and other private events. The club recently added a spa and sports club building that houses a fitness center and a full-service spa.
What are the Design Features of the Coto de Caza Golf and Racquet Club Wine Cellar?
The Wine Rack Display
A wine rack display is an important component of cellaring wines. They are designed to provide space for storing, organizing, and displaying wine collections. Vintage View metal wine racks are the racking of choice for the Coto de Caza Golf and Racquet Club wine enclosure project. This metal wine rack display creates a stunning showcase of different wine labels, and at the same time complements any contemporary-themed interior.
Vintage View metal wine racks are designed to facilitate a label forward orientation of wine bottles. This feature promotes ease of product recognition, allowing for quick perusal and selection of wine labels. In addition, a horizontal placement of bottles helps secure the cork’s sealing quality, by maintaining constant contact with the wine.
The wine rack display design for the clubhouse consists of label forward horizontal display,, in a three deep configuration. Triple depth wine racks can accommodate three bottles laterally, increasing the total bottle capacity of the wine enclosure. A presentation row that runs the length of the wine racking system provides a slightly tilted area, where the finest wine bottles are put on display.
Tempered Glass Panel
The Coto de Caza Golf and Racquet Club wine cellar is enclosed in seamless 1/2″ tempered glass panels, providing a striking view of the wine storage room’s interior from different angles. Tempered glass is ideal for all kinds of applications, since the material is built with safety and strength in mind. This glass minimizes the risk of injury, because it is designed to shatter into circular pebbles rather than jagged shards.
One can access the different wine bottles through three sets of glass doors. Commercial duty pivot hinges with self-closing features are used to mount the heavy doors.
The Wine Cellar Cooling System
For the Coto de Caza Golf and Racquet Club wine cellar project, Coastal Custom Wine Cellars installed a wine cellar cooling system that was designed and manufactured by Wine Guardian, out of New York. The model D088 is a self-contained, fully-ducted air handler system, that can efficiently cool an area from 1,500 to 6,000 cubic feet.
