Practical Yet Elegant Natural Redwood Cellar: Atlanta, GA
Wine cellars can come in many different shapes, sizes and styles. Some are meant to be extravagant and serve as the showcase of a home or restaurant. Others are built for pure functionality for the sole purpose of protecting a collector's prized wine. This particular cellar has a combination of both, as practicality and function were the most important aspects for this customer… but that doesn't mean it can't look beautiful as well! Take a look below for some more information on this lovely Natural Premium Redwood wine cellar.
We asked the customer to share some comments about the design and construction of this unique, custom wine cellar…
“Practical, not the sexiest but practical was the theme I brought to David as we were thinking about incorporating a wine cellar into our complete basement build out.
I was referred to Jonathan from a previous client so we had an instant rapport. He had some great design ideas and after bouncing around cellar concepts, we had a clear cut path on how to layout the space.
My good friend and neighbor Bryan worked with David to build his cellar so he referred me over to Wine Enthusiast to work through what ended up being five different iterations prior to finalizing one that met our needs.
Jonathan wanted to get something installed as soon as possible and loved the idea of our kits to be able to expand the cellar at a later date. Plus they truly give the feel of high end custom with a much friendlier price tag.
We used premium redwood and nearly all single slot storage to ensure efficient aging and easier cataloguing. I had many questions and thoughts along the way and David always was attentive to working through what ended up being the highlight of our basement build out.
We selected a Whisperkool SC unit to create the proper cellar climate. By paneling his posts to with similar wood as the cellar racking, we were able to create a truly functional and aesthetically beautiful home for his prized collection
