Red Ridge Wine Cellars

We were asked to create a wine cellar for clients who were getting started in wine collecting and had purchased a beautiful new home that they were making their own thru various renovations.
We wanted to make a special place that was interesting to look at through the glass door as it is in an area where there would be regular traffic.
We created the 1/4-sawn Fir arched entry as a focal point that compliments the 2 barrel ceilings at different heights. Custom Fir racking was built for this project. A local Granite boulder was cut in half and polished to create the mirrored tasting/decanting areas. The centerpiece wall is a cultured stone feature section to complete the aged/rustic feel of the room. The ceilings had existing mechanical obstructions so by creating 2 separate height and radius barrel ceilings we his this otherwise restrictive feature of the room. This design also allows for the evaporator coil and fan box (they use a split system cooling unit for this room) to be mostly hidden when looking into the room.
100 year old authentic timbers were used as dividers. The back wall opens to reveal a hidden room for the most prized vintages and keepsakes. LED lighting in the display bottle area and back wall finishes the look.
