Our collector has all of the above criteria and then some! His passion for wine has led to travels, crush (what's this?), books, tastings and a 1,000-bottle custom Sapele Mahogany wine cellar and tasting room. He decided to split a home office space into an equal size tasting room (8’ x 8’) and wine cellar (8’ x 8’), so that he is be able to house his wine collection and share it amongst his friends.
The wine room was built over a two month period, with slate flooring, wrought iron doors, ductless split cooling system and of course a magnificent wine barrel tasting table. The custom wine racks were built in six weeks and have such features as display rows, magnum storage, diamond bins and case bins. It’s always important to have the proper environment for your collection, but to build an "adult playroom" which enables the homeowner to slow the pace of life down and share an incredible passion for wine is priceless.
While our collector has one beautiful cellar, at this point he wishes to remain anonymous. Let's catch up with our owner and walk through some of his passions.
