San Juan Capistrano Orange County Wine Cellar Wrought Iron Redwood Wine Barrel
This gorgeous custom wine cellar acts as a dramatic entry piece as you walk into this beautiful home in San Juan Capistrano, Orange County, California. San Juan Capistrano is a lovely community located slightly inland, tucked within Orange County near cities like Newport Beach, Lake Forest, Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa, Dana Point, Laguna Niguel, Laguna Hills, and Irvine.
When you first enter this large custom wine cellar in Orange County, Southern California, standing out first immediately on your left is a unique workstation with a scanner, label-maker, and tabletop – perfect for inventorying the 3,500 bottles that this rustic wine cellar holds. The integrated e-Sommelier system allows this homeowner to catalog each and every wine within his collection, first letting the program know he owns it, how many bottles, which vintages, and with the click of a button – custom wine labels each with a bar code.
Accompanied by the bar code scanner, the e-sommelier system has become a great companion for wine cellars and wine collectors alike, allowing a somewhat seamless and straightforward process in inventorying wines. Directly past the wine inventory station is a vertical row of large format bottle coved trays, displaying some of the owner's favorite wines in the most coveted vintages.
The wine room draws you in from across the house, with its warm redwood tones and interesting wrought iron and glass door. Wine Cellar doors are often overlooked, but proper knowledge of door materials, glass specifications, threshold placement, and hanging procedures are key to creating that perfect airtight room. Additionally, based on the location of your room within your home, the amount of glass in your wine cellar, and your location in the world, levels of cooling capacity need to be seriously considered. You can check out our ultimate guide to wine cellar cooling units to help you better understand the process.
This large walk in custom wine cellar in all heart redwood wine racking fills most of its capacity utilizing double deep, individual bottle storage. At waist height spanning the entire circumference of the wine room is a high reveal display row, highlighted with LED lighting and more single deep storage behind.
- 3500 Bottle Capacity with room for Large Format storage
- "Elevate Series" Racking Style available only through Vintage Cellars
- Room spanning High Reveal Display Row
- Highlighted LED backlit wine racking really make this wine cellar POP
The back wall, in addition to the high reveal display row and double deep individual bottle storage, incorporates a rectangular wine work center with a glass rack above - perfect for decanting, storing uniquely shaped bottles, and opening your favorite bottles with friends. Directly below this countertop are two drawers. A unique feature throughout this wooden traditional large walk-in wine cellar in San Juan Capistrano, California is the incorporation of wine barrels into the room's corner walls, workstations, countertops, and center custom table. To top it all off, a rack-mounted split system wine cooling unit that efficiently cools the entire wine collection is hidden behind the same wooden wine racking.
This fantastically designed wine cellar, built by the master wine cellar builders at Vintage Cellars, is a unique representation of fun and bespoke features that can be incorporated into a traditional redwood, yet modern and bright wine cellar like this.
Because there has been a very heavy push for "wine cellar art," "wine cellars as art," and wine cellars as the main design component within high-end homes, glass wine cellars are often incorporated in high trafficked areas or spaces where each homeowner can show off their prized wines to friends in an almost showcase like display.
This custom wine cellar also incorporates wine case storage throughout the bottom and a small area above the wine inventory system for split bottles.
