A cellar customized with Vintner wine racks

Lately, your wine collection has grown too ambitious for your storage space. You have bottles in the refrigerator, in the panty, and grouped on every countertop. Clearly, you need a better system.

Your ultimate dream is to own a state-of-the-art wine cellar. It will showcase an eclectic collection from all corners of the world, and be perfectly organized so that you can always find the bottle to pair with tonight’s menu.

When creating the ideal wine cellar, one of the most important considerations is: What kind of racks will hold your precious collection? Since your cellar will be mostly made up of racks, the style you chose will make a big impact. But what options are out there, and what differentiates one from another? Here are six of the most popular types of wine cellar racks:

Vintner Series:

Many wine collectors love Vintner wine racks. Vintner wine racks are a modular system. The racks are available in a variety of heights and styles, so that you can mix and match them to get that high-end custom look at a much lower price. Crafted from premium redwood, Vintner wine racks are meant to last a lifetime. The racks can be constructed in unstained wood, which shows off the natural beauty of the material, or it can be stained in a variety of colors to perfectly match your decor.

WineMaker Series:

If you envision a cellar that is floor-to-ceiling bottles, WineMaker racks might be for you. These wine racks are available in three-foot and four-foot heights and are designed to stack on top of each other, so that you can create a seamless wall of racks, no matter the height of your ceilings.

Vintage View:

Vintage View racks are a great fit for wine collectors drawn to versatility. These metal wine racks are available in a variety of modern, innovative styles, all designed to display bottles with the labels out, making finding what you’re looking for a breeze. The new Evolution series incorporates acrylic panels and chrome-plated metal rods to give a unique, eye-catching look to your wine collection.

Designer Wine Racking:

If you crave that custom, designer look, with a variety of racks in interesting shapes and sizes that perfectly fill your space, look no further than designer wine racks. The best part? Though these racks look custom, they’re actually a modular system, with so many sizes, shapes and storage styles available that no one will ever guess they weren’t build just for your space by a master woodworker.

Rustic Pine Racking:

Crave a simple look for your racking system? Rustic pine racks are the perfect solution. Though there are many wood wine racks out there, some of them are coated in finishes and lacquers that may negatively affect the taste of your wine over time. Rustic pine racks are constructed in real, quality wood and left free of potentially-damaging finishes.

Traditional Redwood:

Redwood is one of the most beautiful unfinished wood choices out there. It’s not right for every environment, but luckily, the cool, dry conditions of a wine cellar are ideal for redwood, and will keep it looking pristine for years. Traditional redwood racks come in a kit system, so you can mix and match different rack heights and styles to give your space a custom look.

If you’re looking to add some wine racks to your wine storage area, you might find yourself confused.  What with all the different styles, sizes, materials, and colors available, picking just the right racks for your home and your collection can be difficult.

To fit your style and your space, you might be tempted to go for custom wine racks.  And while you might find that custom wine racks are the ideal option, you might also find that what’s not ideal about them is the price tag.  If you’d like the custom look without the custom price, check out Designer Wine Racks.

Designer wine racks are pre-made, but the individual racks can be fitted together any way you like for that unique, custom look.  Designer wine racks come in a huge variety of styles: they have everything from display shelves to waterfall racks, as well as my personal favorite, diamond racks.

Each Designer wine rack unit is available in poplar, red oak, and premium redwood, all long-lasting and hardy materials.  And each type of wood can be treated with a variety of finishes to ensure that your storage units match your decor. The Vintage Cellars build team can design a custom wine storage solution based around wine rack kits like Designer series racks, too. Check out our custom wine cellars page for more information and inspiration.

Designer wine racks are a beautiful, elegant choice for the wine enthusiast looking for a smart storage solution.  If you’re considering building a wine storage area, they are a great choice.  But remember one important fact: most wine lovers find that once they have a storage area, their wine collections grow larger than they anticipated.  Plan for more than you think you need!
