Custom Cellar Inspiration

Vintage Cellars’ specialty is custom wine cellar designs. All wine cellars have to have functionality, of course. Racking and a cooling system are the bones any wine cellar must be built on. But when building a custom wine cellar, most clients have something more in mind than just mere functionality. Beyond storing their wine in perfect conditions for aging, a wine cellar should have a special stamp that makes it unique, and says something about the collector.

But dreaming up a unique design can be easier said than done. How to put your own brand on your custom design? Sometimes, the best way to get inspired is to jump-start your imagination with some fabulous examples. Here are five of Vintage Cellars’ favorite examples of unique wine cellar style:

Rolling library-style ladder:


This wine cellar at the Mariott Marina in San Diego makes use of vertical space and adds a bit of whimsy with a rolling, library-style ladder.

Glass doors:

Glass doors modernize this wine cellar, and dramatically make the collection the focus.

Wine cellar dining room:


Forget tucking your collection away in a hidden corner. This Louisiana wine cellar makes double use of the cellar as a stunning tasting room.

A dramatic arch with wine storage:


This arch gives this 1,500-bottle San Diego cellar a focal point.

Ceiling wine racks:

This wine cellar is already dramatic, with its tasting table and custom cabinetry…but when guests look up, the ingenious ceiling storage truly takes their breaths away.
