Chicago Wine Cellars Benefit Well From Quality Wine Cellar Cooling Units

Wine cellar refrigeration systems in Chicago are an essential aspect of wine storage. Wine cellar cooling units help make sure that the temperature and humidity in your residential wine cellar in Chicago are kept at the ideal ranges. Wines cannot mature well if they aren’t kept in the ideal temperature and humidity ranges.

Residential Wine Cellar Project in Long Grove, Chicago, Illinois

A beautifully designed wine cellar in Chicago by Baroque Designs LCC is an example of a wine storage room that can provide the ideal conditions for wines.
This residential wine cellar is built in a home in Long Grove, Chicago, and can accommodate more than 1000 wine bottles.
Wines can be stored in many different ways, but when it comes to huge wine collections, custom wine cellars are the best place to keep them. The huge home wine cellar was built in a renovated billiard table room that is 15 x 17 feet.

Custom Wine Cellar Chicago – Unique Design

The residential wine cellar in Chicago was uniquely designed and built by Baroque Designs LCC. The wine cellar had a classic feel with a medieval design. The stonework was done in the wine storage room up to the 10’ ceiling. The wine racks were handmade from reclaimed barn wood, which was obtained from their local supplier. Four niches that were 2’ high and 6” deep in the corners of the wine racks were included, to showcase magnums. The wine racking was made to accommodate individual storage and a diamond bin was included for bulk storage.

Wine cellar doors are also an important part of custom wine cellars because how they are built may affect the temperature and humidity conditions inside the wine storage rooms. A purpose-built wine cellar door imported from Europe was installed in this beautiful home wine cellar in Chicago, Illinois.

A classic design wine tasting room is another beautiful feature of this Chicago residential wine cellar. The tasting room has a table and a few chairs. A reclaimed wine barrel head from Sonoma Valley in California was used as décor in this tasting room. The barrel head had the client’s name customized on it.

Wine Cellar Refrigeration System Chicago – Effectively Installed

Every home wine cellar in Chicago needs a wine cellar refrigeration unit to help make sure that the temperature and humidity are kept at the ideal levels. Wines will get damaged if there are constant fluctuations in these levels.

For this wine cellar project in Long Grove, Chicago, Illinois, US Cellar Systems provided an effective wine cellar refrigeration unit and had a licensed HVAC technician install the unit. The unit was a 300 cubic feet capacity Ductless Split Type Cooling unit.

Residential Wine Cellar in a High Rise Condominium Atlanta Georgia

Residential Wine Cellar in a High Rise Condominium Atlanta Georgia

I’d like to take you on a tour of our latest custom wine cellars in Atlanta, Georgia project. This residential wine cellar was actually created in a high-rise condominium.  It created a few situations but nothing we couldn’t overcome.

This particular residential wine cellar holds a total of 997 bottles.  The room that this wine cellar was created in had four structural columns.  Actually, I believe two of the columns may have been structural, the others were not, but in order to make this look correct, we kept the columns and worked around them.

We added custom wine racks between the columns on the two sides of the back wall and then on the front wall some of the columns are 15 inches deep, we added a horizontal rack.  You’ll see that as we go along with the drawings.

You’ll notice in the drawings each elevation is designated by a letter.  The left and right walls are elevation A, the back wall is elevation B and the front sections here are elevation D, I don’t know what happened to elevation C.
Elevation A, the left and right walls have X bins on the bottom.  These are lattice X bins so it has a support rack where the back wall comes out this is not seen in the room when it’s completed.  You have a high reveal display row with a light balance above it and 750ml individual bottles above that.   These custom wine racks we made are 11 3/4 inches deep, simply so that they fit in with the columns.  You have a 1 1/2 inch toe kick and a 2 1/4 inch crown molding.

We’ll go to elevation B, the back wall.  We have a tall arch with a pot light opening and light valances over the display row, 750ml bottles up above, three X-cubes, and room four actually for case storage.  This bottom section is double deep.  Therefore, your X- bins are double deep as well as your case storage. It includes a tabletop area; the upper section with the 750s is single deep.

The elevation D is the little area right where you come into the room, next to the first columns on the left to the right.   Here we have horizontal display racks where your bottles are stored horizontally.

This is the overhead view of the room.  You can see your bottles can go in from the ends on this particular horizontal rack.

This is the back wall, you can see that we have lattice X bins and lattice case storage below.  Looking toward the custom wine cellar door, you can see that we have used the Tuscan door; it’s a square door with arched glass.  The whisper cooling unit is located above the custom wine cellar door.

This is your left wall and this is your right wall and back wall, and you can see we have the lattice bins, the 750s above, and the arch.

We are going to do a quick walk of some of the completed photos.  Here you can see the door.  This door is a Tuscan and Knotty Alder has the black hand-forged wrought iron, has a square top and arched glass and the stain is early American with number 850 moldings.

You’re looking at a photograph of Dave’s Custom Wine Cellars Chicago Illinois in a darkened room with the lighting turned on.  As you can see in the wine cellar design, there is a wine barrel table top on a peninsula table.  We have a high reveal display row with LED ribbon lighting above and a solid arch with a pop light.  I’d like to take you on a tour of the wine cellar design drawings.

What you’re looking at here is the overhead or plan view of Dave’s Custom Wine Cellars Chicago Illinois.  As you can see each elevation is designated by a letter: elevation A, the front wall, elevation B the three corner walls, elevation C the left, D the back wall and E the right wall.

There are a total of 1,064 bottles in this wine cellar.  Dave had a little bit of a different design for his cellar; he has the bottom racks coming out further than the top custom wine racks with a 3-inch leap.

We will go to first of all elevation A, below the window.  Here we have a champagne size of individual bottles on each side of case storage.  We have individual case storage and solid case storage in between.  There is a 1 1/2 inch toe-kick and base molding on the bottom.  The table top is a cooperage wine table top.

Elevation B is the corners.  Again you can see the wider bottom and the narrower top with the three-inch ledge.

Elevation C, this area in the center is where they built columns in between these racks.  We have solid X-cubes on the bottom with an individual row on each side.  The high reveal display row with the light valance to hide this LED ribbon lighting and the individual bottles above.

Again you can see they’ve one 10-inch rack on the top and 13-inch custom wine racks on the bottom.  All of these custom wine racks in Palos Heights Illinois are 92 1/2 inches high with a 2 1/4 inch crown molding going up an inch above the racks.

Elevation D is the back wall.  Here we have case storage on each side.  We have solid X-cubes above, individual bottle storage, glass racks, high reveal display row with light valance for the LED ribbon lighting and behind, which is hard to see on this drawing.

What we used is a wine barrel that Dave had himself, a French wine barrel; we’ve incorporated that into the design and behind the wine barrel there is enough room here.  We were able to put case storage back behind as well.

Moving on to elevation E, we have more case storage going from floor to ceiling and a quarter-round in the end.  These are solid case storage and solid quarter-round.

3D Wine Cellar Design

We’re going to the 3D wine cellar design Chicago Illinois drawing now.  This is the overhead view.  You can see where we did the three-inch leap, where his peninsula table top comes out, and the tabletop right below the window.

This is a view from the front looking back, a view from the back to the window and the four walls and the window and the right wall from the back straight back, and here is from the doorway looking into the left.  Here you can see the case storage behind the wine barrel.

Hope you’ve enjoyed the walkthrough and the tour of Dave’s Wine Cellar Design created by Custom Wine Cellars Chicago Illinois SPecialists.

Wine Cabinets & Wine Racks – Excellent Alternative Wine Storage Solutions

There are a few different ways of storing wines.  They can be kept in a wine cellar, in custom wine racks perched on a kitchen countertop, placed in a corner of a room, or stacked carefully in a wine cabinet.  Of all the aforementioned wine storage solutions, wine cellars are deemed the best place to store and age wines because they are designed in a climate-controlled environment.

Since not all wine collectors have access to a private wine cellar, wine cabinets Chicago can serve as efficient and affordable wine storage solutions.  A wine cabinet functions like a mini wine cellar because it can provide the best possible wine storage environment on a smaller scale.  Hence, they can be used for either short-term or long-term storage.

There are two types of wine cabinets:  passive and active or refrigerated.  Passive wine cabinets are not affixed with temperature and humidity controls.  Most of these cabinets are constructed from wood and have various total bottle capacities.  These storage cabinets are ideal for holding consumable wines.

Like active wine cellars, refrigerated wine cabinets are equipped with cooling systems that help maintain the temperature between 50 and 59 degrees Fahrenheit, and regulate humidity levels within 60% to 75%.  Fluctuating temperatures can cause premature aging in wines, while constant humidity changes can dry out the corks and cause molds to grow.

Some wine cabinets have dual zone features that provide independent temperature controls.  This setup allows for two separate storage compartments for different types of wines.  These wine storage solutions are also known for their vibration-free and whisper-quiet operation.

To protect wine bottles from incandescent light, wine cabinets are outfitted with LED-based lighting.  LED bulbs generate less heat and don’t give off ultraviolet rays.  Some of these cabinets have adjustable light features that can help minimize the exposure of wine bottles to light.

A wine cabinet comes with custom wine racks that allow for horizontal storage.  Laying wine bottles on their side allows the cork to continuously come in contact with the wine.  Keeping the cork moist is essential to preserving the taste and flavor of wines.  A dried-out cork can promote oxidation that could potentially ruin the quality of wines.

Wine cabinets are built with proper ventilation to facilitate better air circulation.  This will prevent unwanted smells and odors from penetrating the cork and spoiling the wine.  Good ventilation will also restrict possible mold infestation.

They are also multifunctional because some of them are designed with stemware racks that allow wine glasses to be hung right in the cabinet.  They may also come with drawers that can provide storage space for various wine accessories such as corkscrews, stoppers, decanters, and other wine-related items.

A wine cabinet is available in different storage capacities.  They can accommodate regular-sized bottles to magnums.  They have sufficient space to store a few bottles to over a hundred wines.  In terms of aesthetics, their sleek and stylish designs can match and complement any home décor.

Wine cabinets are convenient and economical wine storage options for wine enthusiasts who can’t afford their own wine cellars.  They provide a climate-controlled environment wherein wines can mature nicely.  These cabinets also protect wines from breakage by providing secured storage spaces.
