Finding a Home or Commercial Wine Cellar Specialist You Can Trust
Discerning wine collectors have a problem. Whether you’re a Tampa, Florida homeowner building a modern custom wine cabinet in your residence, or you own a commercial property in Chicago, Illinois that needs a large ducted wine cellar—finding a builder you can trust to actually build these elegant structures, who knows what they are doing, can be very challenging.
Building a wine cellar isn’t like building a normal room or cabinet—or even a refrigeration unit for that matter. You have to control both temperature and humidity. You have to control lighting. You have to prevent movement of any sort. A wine cradled in its rack is more sensitive than a newborn baby sleeping in a bassinet.
And any wine collector who loves their wine worries about meeting with a cranky contractor or a slick salesman who’s going to try to talk them into purchasing a predetermined wine project that they don’t really want, that isn’t going to really help them build the kind of wine selection that they dream of.

Wine Cellar Design Discovery Process
We spend a lot of time discussing your needs and expectations, helping us to figure out how to design the project to your specifications:
- How many bottles of wine do you plan to have?
- What size of bottles do you collect?
- Do you plan to host in the space?
- Do you collect other beverages?
- What’s your aesthetic tastes?
We genuinely want to know.
Very often builders who construct wine cellars have cookie cutter patterns that that they try to fit their clients homes or commercial properties into because they don’t know enough about this very specialized niche of construction.
We, however, only build wine cellar projects. So if you can imagine it, or you’ve seen it in a magazine, or online, chances are we can do it.
Custom Wine Cellar Designers Know How to Plan!
We want your custom wine cellar, wine room, display, or cabinet and the entire construction process to turn out perfect. We know that construction can be difficult, and comes with challenges and inconveniences. This can be especially evident when building in your home.
Nicely Avoiding the Pitfalls
This is where professional, friendly, and specialized planning comes into play. We’ve seen scores of wine cellars. We know where the pitfalls can come. We will help guide you through the challenges. We will help you navigate the choices that need to be made with minimal pain!
Keeping Your Project on Budget
One of the misconceptions out there is that you pay more for custom work. But you need to consider an important fact:
Won’t you save money in the long run by staying on budget?
How many times have you started a home construction project, or heard of colleagues start a professional commercial project, only to have it spiral out of control because of unforeseen expenses. This is what happens when your builder doesn’t know what they are doing.
Certainly there are always things you can’t plan for whenever you enter a construction job, which is why planning is so vital. You have to plan for what you can’t plan for. Which is why choosing a builder that has built wine cellar projects, of various types, all across the country is so important.
Designing on Budget
The other important factor when it comes to your budget is to design your project according to your budget. This is SO IMPORTANT. Where do you want your money to go in your project? Do you want it spent on racking? In the walls? In the flooring? In the cooling system? It all depends on YOUR priorities.
A commercial wine cellar in the back of a Chicago restaurant is going to have very different budgeting priorities than a wine tasting room in a Clearwater, Florida residence.
Very often we can help you save money on your project, making it cheaper than you think it will be. Hiring an expert designer is very smart financial choice when it comes to wine cellars.
Protecting Your Investment
Both investments can be expensive and personally valuable to you. And both appreciate in in value when preserved. So we recognize the importance of respecting the investment your making and doing everything in our power to help maximize your return on this investment, from both a financial perspective as well as a personal one.
Protecting the wine investment can be of particular importance to our commercial restaurant and wine store owners. Talk with us today about what your financial goals are for your business and how we can help you increase your profitability through a custom wine cellar.
Choosing Your Cooling Unit
The biggest technical decision for any wine cellar construction project is what type and brand of wine cellar refrigeration unit should be chosen. You don’t want to invest thousands of dollars only to find out a few months from now that that the wine cellar isn’t maintaining the right conditions—
Or worse yet, find out that the wine cooling unit is actually causing damage to your property due to a leak. This would be a disaster, and it’s not without precedence. We see it all the time.
Trusted Wine Cellar Builders Know How to Help You Make the Right Choices
Wine cellar construction also involves understanding the space that we’re building in and choosing the right materials and techniques for construction. You can’t just use any old type of flooring in a wine cellar. You also can’t just install any type of lighting in a wine room? And don’t think that any door is going to okay to install into the room. These kinds of choices really have to be thought through and understood by an expert.
Don’t Forget to Consider Insulation
Insulation is also a very big deal. We insulate your space to make sure that the refrigeration unit that we’ve installed doesn’t get overworked. Much could be written and said about this important topic. We highly recommend you see our page on insulation and discuss this topic with one of our specialists so that you can understand how your future wine cellar is going to be protected from climate fluctuations—the enemy to wine.
