Custom Wine Cellars Naples Florida Design Features
A climate controlled residential wine room is carefully designed and constructed to facilitate long-term wine storage as well as provide an elegant and comfortable space for entertaining. This recently completed custom wine cellars Naples Florida project features a combination of a wine storage room and a wine tasting area.
Most of the components in this wine cellar project are entirely made of reclaimed wine barrels, from the wine racking down to the wine cellar flooring. Using recycled oak wine barrels is an environmentally friendly approach to wine cellar construction. Reclaimed wine barrels are given a new lease on life turned into unique and sustainable products, which can enhance the appearance of any living space.
Custom Wine Racks and Wine Barrel Flooring
The wine racks are constructed from Vintique reclaimed wine barrels with a natural finish. The curved display appearance of the racking system allows wine bottles to be displayed cork-first. The natural characteristics of the oak wine barrels bring out a distinct aroma and diversity in coloring coming from the wines previously stored in them.
The floor covering comes from stave wine barrel flooring that displays hoop impressions from removed metal staves that once kept the wine barrels intact. Matching countertops were also constructed from cooperage barrel, which features the label and insignia of the corresponding winery. The distinctive markings on wine barrels create a one of a kind appearance in a wine cellar space.
The Wine Tasting Room
The spacious entertainment and wine tasting room is isolated from the actual wine storage room. The Italian Renaissance feel of the tasting area is enhanced by a large Italian painting and baroque ornaments, such as the heraldic shield and epees on the wall, and the gothic chandelier. The wine tasting room includes a long table with 10 velvet cushioned chairs, a cabinet with a glass stemware rack, a cooperage tabletop and a cigar humidor with glass panels.
The wine storage area has a large tempered window that faces towards the entertainment section of the wine cellar. The glass window provides a clear view of the wine collection, as well as of the stunning interior of the storage space.
Barolo Wine Cellar Door
A Barolo style wine cellar door with heavy distressing seals the wine cellar entryway. A wine cellar door is an important component of a storage space, because its presence helps keep the desired climate conditions for aging wine collectibles from fluctuating.
An efficient wine cellar door must have weather stripping all around the jambs and a retractable door seal unit at the bottom. Maintaining a tight seal prevents the cool air from escaping out of the wine room.
Wine Cellar Refrigeration System
A consistent and stable temperature and humidity level is vital to the proper aging of wines. The right type of wine cellar refrigeration system ensures that the ideal wine storage environment is achieved. For this custom wine cellars Naples Florida project, the builders installed a 6000s cooling unit by CellarPro. A remote control unit and display panel was mounted outside the wine room for easy temperature monitoring.
The evaporator unit was installed above the large glass window, while the condenser was located outside the home. The units were connected by a line set consisting of electrical wiring and copper tubing.
The overall wine room design was in tune with the Italian style architecture of the home. The addition of a custom wine cellar space to this elegant home complemented its opulent and luxurious appearance.
