True wine lovers know the need to invest in a quality wine storage solution. Wine is an investment that needs to be protected, and to do so, a wine collector needs to keep them in the ideal wine storage conditions. In order to create an effective wine storage solution, two factors are essential: a properly built custom wine cellar, and an efficient custom wine cellar cooling unit.

A Custom Wine Cellar Should Have an Efficient Wine Cellar Cooling Unit Installed

A custom wine cellar has to be well-designed and built, using quality materials. But no wine cellar can provide the ideal wine storage conditions by itself. A wine cellar cooling system has to be installed. This is why Coastal Custom Wine Cellars, a reputable wine cellar design and construction company, partners with US Cellar Systems, a wine cellar refrigeration systems manufacturer, to create effective wine storage solutions in California.

The Unique Custom Wine Cellar Constructed in Laguna Hills, Orange County, California

One of their most successful projects is the residential custom wine cellar built in Nellie Gail Ranch, a subdivision in Laguna Hills, Orange County, California.

Custom Wine Cellars Orange County California Laguna Hills Small Project

In this project, Coastal Custom Wine Cellars converted a small powder room into an effective wine storage solution. Here are the details of the construction:

Coastal Provided Consultation on the Custom Wine Cellar Design

It is standard procedure for Coastal to provide consultation services to their clients regarding the intended residential custom wine cellar design. They also provide 3D drawings of the planned wine cellar design. This design consultation process is an integral part of wine cellar construction, because Coastal Custom Wine Cellars wants to make sure that the wine storage solution meets their client’s personal preferences and fits their budget, without compromising the quality and effectiveness of the wine storage room.

In this Laguna Hills, Orange County, CA project, the wine cellar designer and the client met and discussed the types of wine that the client intended to collect and store in the wine cellar, including the number of wines they planned to store. They also talked about how they wanted the wine bottles to be displayed, and how they planned to organize the wine collection. The final design was a residential custom wine cellar that could accommodate 471 wine bottles, with a display arch, diamond X bin storage, and high reveal and horizontal display rows.

1. The Wine Racks

There are many options to choose from when it comes to wine racks. Wine racks in Orange County, California can be from various kinds of materials such as wood, steel and plastic. For this home custom wine cellar built in Orange County, California, the client chose to have wooden wine racks installed. More specifically, the client opted for Mahogany to be used as the material for the custom wine racks. The wood also had a natural clear finish applied.

Wine Cellar built in Laguna Hills

One of the toughest challenges that Coastal Custom Wine Cellar faced in this wine cellar construction project was the limited space available. The area was approximately 60 inches wide only, with an offset entry door close to the left wall. To maximize the available space, the wine cellar designer, together with the client, decided to install 6 inch deep horizontal label forward display racks on the left hand wall. The wine racks were designed to accommodate wine bottles of various sizes, from standard to magnum size. The rest of the wine racks were 13 ½ inches deep. An arched wine tasting area was also included, right across the cellar’s entryway. The wine tasting area had a horizontal display underneath, which was meant for featuring selected wine bottles. On the sides of the arch, high reveal rows were included. These high reveal rows tilt wine bottles at an angle, so that the labels can be seen by guests. The high reveal display rows continued up to the right hand side wall, and included high capacity standard custom wine racks. Furthermore, central diamond bin case storage was added below.

Additionally, a louvered grill also made from Mahogany was placed at the top of the wine cellar, to conceal the wine cellar refrigeration unit. Mahogany was used so that it would blend in with the Mahogany wine rack design.

2. The Cellar Door

Not a lot of people see the importance of a wine cellar door. Most people see it as simply an entryway to the wine cellar. The truth is, the wine cellar door plays a very important role in keeping the temperature and humidity inside the wine storage room constant. To be effective in doing so, a wine cellar door must be built using durable materials. The wine cellar door in the Laguna Hills wine cellar project had dual glass with chestnut stained Mahogany framing.

3. The Wine Cellar Cooling System Installed

Each wine cellar has different wine storage requirements. Because of this, different wine cellars need different wine cellar cooling systems. For the wine cellar built by Coastal in Laguna Hills, Orange County, California, US Cellar Systems determined the appropriate wine cellar cooling unit, and it was an RM 3600 split type wine cellar refrigeration system. The unit’s evaporator was installed and concealed behind the custom designed louvered grill, while the condenser was placed in another room.
