Preston Hollow Wine Room with Custom Wood Racks Brilliantly Displays 3000-Bottles (Dallas, TX)
.This project not only amazed the owner but impressed the Dallas Builders Association so much they awarded Wine Cellar Specialists their fifth ARC Award for Best Wine Cellar Remodel.
Award-Winning Remodeled Custom Wine Room
Each year, the Dallas Builders Association singles out only a few companies and their projects for special recognition and awards. Since 2012, Wine Cellar Specialists has won five awards for their incredible custom wine cellar projects.
That’s a staggering number in such a short period of time for a local builder.
In 2016, Wine Cellar Specialists was given the Best Wine Cellar Remodel award by the Dallas Builders Association on this Preston Hollow, Dallas, TX project.
High-Capacity Storage Needed in Dallas, TX Home’s Wine Room & Wood Racks
The #1 request from the client on this wine room project was to meet the demand for a large volume of at
least 3,000 bottle storage capacity for 750 sized bottle storage. We exceeded that expectation of the owner and created a total storage capacity of 3,230 bottles.
Custom Wood Wine Racks
To achieve this goal, we created custom valadis-style double deep racking for nearly all available space in the room.
The center of the back wall and the spaces near the soffit were the only exceptions we made to this mandate. The center back wall was used as a display for magnum sized bottles of wine, and the sides of the soffit were deep bottle storage.
Custom Knotty Alder Wine Racks Give a Special Design Appearance to any Wine Room
A Knotty Alder Wood with Rustic Stain was chosen to give the wood a more traditional look. The custom racking had no lacquer or finish applied. The choice to use this particular type-of-wood and stain combination gives a darker look to the wood and provides a rich quality to the entire cellar.
Custom Counter Top Added for Display and Storage
A counter top was added to the wine room to store extra unique bottles of wine and as an area for wine tasting. Located beneath the counter top is double deep case storage.
Custom Contemporary Style Dual Pane Glass Doors Outside of a Traditional Style Wine Room
A big goal with the Dallas, Texas area wine room and racks was to create a rustic looking cellar that doesn’t look odd in the contemporary design of the Preston Hollow residence.
This bridge between the modern look of the home and the traditional look of the wine cellar itself is the dual pane glass doors. Excelling in form and function, one large 36’ wide door stands between two sidelights (narrow, stationary windows adjacent to the doorway), framed in black iron, giving the guest an outside view from the contemporary exterior into a more rustic/traditional aesthetic.
We used insulated iron to help keep the wine room at a consistent temperature.
A lock on the push door handle adds security to the cellar.
The door system acts like a large high-concept picture frame to another room, with a different style, helping to merge the type spaces, bringing them together conceptually and visually.

Smart Wine Cellar Cooling Unit Solution for a Big Wine Room
We installed the versatile Rack Mounted Wine Cellar Cooling Unit by US Cellar Systems (RM 6600). This high-velocity version of the cooling system was chosen because of the dual pane glass at the front of the wine room and because of the vast number of bottles in the room.
The compressor is placed in the garage and out of the way of the garage door. It’s found on top of a specially built shelf. Installed away from the wine room eliminates noise inside the wine cellar.
The Award-Winning Wine Room & Wood Racks – Final Result
The work speaks for itself, which is why Wine Cellar Specialists was recognized for its efforts in creating a fantastic residential custom wine room remodel.
Technically, this is one of our most impressive wine room projects. The custom wood wine racks are both stunning and efficient! We exceeded the customer’s wine storage needs by a wide margin. The added difficulty of designing a transitional wine room, creating a beautiful and unique space in the Dallas home, demonstrates why the Dallas Builders Association felt it necessary to recognize us once again as the premier wine cellar builder in the city.
