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 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 it.

We added custom wine racks between the columns on the two sides on 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 table top area; the upper section with the 750’s is single deep.

The elevation D, this 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.

Chicago Wine Cellars – Reading & Understanding Wine Labels

Drinking wine is a common part of social activities, especially for wine enthusiasts. No dinner or party is complete without a glass or two of wine to complement the food and lively conversation.

For wine lovers and collectors, it is essential to understand not just the taste and flavor of the wine, but also its producers and the region where it came from. It is interesting to note the kinds of wines that collectors have in their wine cabinets, wine racks, or wine cellars.

A basic lesson in wine is reading the wine bottle label. By reading the wine label, one will find a lot of information on the wine he is about to add to or pick from his Chicago custom wine cellar.

REQUEST A WINE CELLAR SPECIALIST TO CONTACT YOU!For those who don’t have a home wine cellar, it is easy enough to get table wines from wine stores, but it is important to have a basic understanding of the wine labels just in case the wine clerk is not adept to answer your queries.

You will also be assured of the quality of the wine you are buying as certain features are written on the label. A collector’s wine bottles in his residential wine cellar are a pure joy to show off to friends and acquaintances, especially if one knows how to read or what to look for in wine labels. This is probably the true test of one’s knowledge in wines.

 

Buy Quality Wines for Your Chicago Wine Cellar – Learn How to Read a Wine Label

There are five basic elements written on wine labels. These are the vineyard, vintage, appellation, bottling, and alcohol content.

Vineyard

The vineyard is where the wine is produced. The name of the vineyard tells the buyer its reputation. Sometimes for wine collectors, the name of the vineyard is enough motivation to buy or collect a particular wine bottle.

Vintage

The vintage is the year the grapes were produced and not the year the wine was bottled. Looking at the year together with the appellation and vineyard or producer will tell the collector if the wine is good to be aged for years or not. However, in most commercial wine cellars or wine stores, wines are ready to be consumed and not aged too long as this may affect the quality of the wine.

Appellation

Wineries in certain regions possess qualities that dictate the kinds of grapes that will be produced. Grapes grown and harvested in Napa Valley are different from the grapes grown in other areas.

In most wine producing countries, vineyards are bound by government laws in the usage of the grapes used in the wines they produce. For example, if 95% is required by law, it means that 95% of the grapes used must be produced in the vineyard indicated in the label and the remaining 5% can come from other areas or regions.

To indicate good wine made from high-quality grapes, it is important to look for these phrases on the wine label:

France: Appellation d’Origine Controlee (AOC)

Italy: Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) or Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC).

Portugal: Denominacao de Origem Controlada (DOC) or Indicacao de Proviniencia Regulamentada (IPR)

Spain: Denominacion de Origen Calificada (DOC) or Denominacion de Origen (DO)

Other wines have these on the label:

Grands Cru or Premiers Cru means the wine is produced in a high quality vineyard from a region in France

Gran Reserva means that the wine is bottled for 5 years

Mis en bouteille au chateau / domaine / a la propriete / Gutsabfüllung (estate bottled) means that the wine is bottled by the producers themselves and not by a different entity.

Vieilles Vignes (old vines) means that the wines used are harvested from the vineyard with old vines, usually more than 40 years old in existence. These old vines produce grapes with richer flavors but lower quantities.

 

Bottling

Details on bottling of the wine are crucial. Usually good wines are those with grapes grown and harvested by a reputable vineyard and bottled by the same producers. Some vineyards have others bottle their produced wine and this must be indicated on the label.

 

Alcohol content 

Alcohol content is the amount of alcohol contained in the wine. It also indicates the body and sweetness of the wine. Wines with alcohol content of 14% and above are more full bodied and tannic. Wines with alcohol content of 11% or below are sweeter and lighter. This information can also be used by wine drinkers to know how much alcohol enters their system.

To be familiar with the appellations and vineyards, wine enthusiasts must educate themselves by reading books and other materials about them. One can then take a trip to the nearest wine store to test his knowledge of reading wine labels as this is crucial in obtaining quality wines for your Chicago custom wine cellar.
