Construction Stages of Modern Home Wine Cellars

A client from The Canyons, approached the Las Vegas-based team at Custom Wine Cellars. She wanted them to incorporate modern wine cellar ideas into a fashionable wine storage room for her property. The team selected an unused corner of the house to implement their wine cellar design. But initially, they had to dismantle a few walls to the wooden frames in order to place the wine shelves. 

After wrapping up the initial demolition, the team’s first task was to place the electrical lines correctly. This was critical not only for the cooling system of wine fridges but also for the seamless operation of the LED lights. Next, the installers inserted the cell foam to perfect their wine cellar design. This acts as a vapor barrier, delivering the right level of insulation throughout the whole area by ensuring a solid seal. 

The weight coming from the back wall is supported by mounting plywood on the wall. Plywood was also utilized to support the weight of the soffit. Upon completion, the team applied the needed texture and finish to the wall and installed the cable wine racking system.  

Modern Way of Organizing your Wine Collection

The ingeniously installed cables in this wine racking system will leave visitors in awe. It skilfully conceals the cables, creating the illusion of wine bottles floating mid-air. The high-gloss finish of the cables enhances their visual appeal, especially when highlighted with LED lights. 

How can the thin cables accommodate the weight of many wine bottles? This is not something to worry about since they are made from stainless steel, which can support almost any bottle of any size. The intricate arrangement of the cables provides adequate support at both the front and back of the bottles.  

The wine racking system uses sturdy metallic clamps on both ends to support the tension cables. This racking system can withstand vibration and movements, vital for storing wines. Despite its minimal look, you can rest assured that your wine collection is well-kept inside this modern wine room.

Benefits of Cable Wine Racking Systems 

    • It allows you to display the wine bottles according to their preferences. You can position the lower and upper bottles where the labels are facing the viewer’s eyesight directly. 
  • This also makes for an efficient organization of your whole collection.  
  • Compared to standard wine racks, cables provide air gaps, which means better air and temperature circulation.  
  • The symmetrical and clean arrangement further accentuates your desired modern and minimalist vibe.  
  • As mentioned, because of its smart tension cable design, you can store all types of wine bottle sizes, from standard to magnum size.  
  • The cable wine racks are engineered to withstand vibration, helping the wine maintain its taste and quality.  

With that being said, the cable racks can store around 500 bottles. Despite the minimal area for the modern home wine cellar, the team fully maximized its storage capacity. Additionally, installing bronze mirrors adds an illusion to make the entire wine cellar area seem bigger. The wine closet also boasts more features like a display table, LED lighting panels, and a glass door and enclosure.  

Contemporary Lighting System

Incorporating LED lighting is a modern element that is rising in popularity in the market. For this project, the coastal team utilized a custom-made LED panel. They fashioned the panel using an acrylic board and mounted the lights.

The panel system comes with adjustable lighting that you can set to highlight the whole wine collection. The LED bulbs don’t emit heat, which is perfect for maintaining the wine cellar’s humidity and temperature. RGB lighting is an extra feature that allows the client to adjust the brightness and color based on their mood.

Glass Enclosed Modern Home Wine Cellars: A Valuable Addition to your The Canyons Home

Building a modern and minimalistic home wine storage is challenging when considering many features and functionality. The most critical function of wine storage is to protect the wine from fluctuating temperature and humidity levels.  

Condensation is another factor affecting wine quality because it promotes growth. The cork’s exposure to mold destroys its sealing property, leading to premature aging of wines.  

In this case, the team was able to finalize a design layout that does not compromise functionality over style. The wine cellar encloses itself in a U-channel, utilizing frameless single-paned glass for both the sidewalls and the door. 

A ½-inch tempered glass is specifically utilized for the U-channel to provide a seal for optimum insulation of the wine closet. This protects the interior from condensation and sudden changes in humidity and temperature.  

Advanced Wine Cooling System for a Noise-Free Wine Room

Most modern wine cooling systems are ducted split systems designed to reduce noise and save more space than traditional cooling equipment. Having effective noise reduction is crucial for proper wine storage. The constant movement of wine bottles can create vibrations that negatively impact the taste and aroma of the wine. It’s essential to minimize such vibrations to maintain the high quality of the wine. It is also not conducive for visitors to hear the constant humming of a cooling unit.  

 The team picked the HS46 unit from US Cellar System for the home’s contemporary wine closet. This split-type wine cooling system offers many excellent features and keeps things quiet. The team positioned the condensing unit outside the house while they placed the evaporating coils in the soffit. This strategic placement provided a much quieter cellar environment.
