Myers Wine Room 1

Since we just lugged the holiday decorations out of the crawl space (and back in to it in short order), we have maximum capacity on the mind when thinking about wine cellar inspiration this month. Check out these residential and commercial cellars that manage to 1) pack the bottles in like its owners just joined 10 wine clubs for Christmas, and 2) still have enough style to catch an interior designer’s eye.

Residential Wine Cellar with Wine Lockers

Residential Wine Cellar: Myers Wine Room

Using a variety of methods for storing wine (floating walls, bins, wall-mounted columns) this Sacramento homeowner created a statement piece of design — that can hold more than 2,000 bottles of wine. Mixing Case + Crate bins with a variety of Wall Series metal wine racks (mounted to the wall, mounted to frames, set to hold big and bigger bottles), the balance of form and function is about perfect here.

  • Floor-to-Ceiling Frames
  • Case & Crate
  • Magnum (double-deep) and Big Bottle racks
  • All in Satin Black Finish

District Winery DC

Winery Spot: District Winery in Washington D.C.

Located in Washington D.C.,District Winery is an urban winery that enjoys showing off its design as much as it does the wine. The 17,000-square-foot facility needed to feature a wine cellar that properly stored wine — wine that is visible from the street through massive exterior glass walls. Designer HapstakDemetriou+ studied light patterns and expertly set the glass-enclosed wine wall off from natural light. Beautiful, smart, and award winning (see details below).

Two wine towers hold more than 3,800 crafted vintages on Wall Series metal wine racks mounted to Floor-to-Ceiling Frames. The cellar is fully climate controlled for short- and long-term storage, while maintaining the design aesthetic of the space. The mix of wood, metal, and glass creates a contemporary industrial space that functionally and beautifully serves as a winery, storage, event and dining space. It’s no wonder the design has already won awards.

Restaurant Wine Showcase: Red, The Steakhouse 

Leave it to a South Beach restaurant to define steakhouse design in a contemporary fashion. Red, The Steakhouse veers from the old-world design of many high-end steak concepts with a vibrant, airy, and modern sensibility throughout.
