WineRacks.com’s company president Michael Babcock will be on Home Talk USA this Thursday, May 25th, at 4:20 PM CT. You can listen to the interview on GCNLive.com.

Mr. Babcock and Home Talk USA’s host Michael King will be discussing a range of topics from what you need to know to put a wine cellar in your home to what sets our wine racks apart to our pride in being a Made in America company.

It should be an interesting talk and we’d love for you all to listen in.

Wine Wednesday: Building Retail Wine Racks for Lake Geneva Country Meats

At WineRacks.com, we pride ourselves on designing and building quality wine racks that our clients will be proud to display for a lifetime. One advantage of taking such pride in our work is that we often see repeat customers who we get to know as more than just a client. A great example of that is Lake Geneva Country Meats.

Nick from Lake Geneva Country Meat initially contacted us over a year ago looking for some wine racks for his store. He worked with our associate Shannon to determine what would work best in his space and settled on our double tier island merchandisers in oak. He let us know he loved the racks and we were proud to have been able to help him rack his space.

A year later, Nick returned with a need for more wine racks. As he loved the double tier islands in oak, he decided to buy more along with two of our two column bin displays. We built them for him in house, as we do all our wood wine racks, and got them out to him just in time for Thanksgiving.

Nick then sent us the following, glowing testimonial:

“We received our racks last Friday and I got them installed Sunday for the Thanksgiving rush. I’m very grateful we were able to get them out in time, they really helped our sales. I’ve attached a picture of the layout. We don’t have all of the signage up, and we’re going to put a Christmas Tree in the middle of the racks, but you get the general picture! It really is a good layout and our customers frequently comment on how nice the racks are and wonder where we get them. I hope you have gotten some gift referrals from them!”

Nick also showed us a fantastic picture of our two column bin displays being used to hold dry goods instead of wine. It is always fun to see the alternate uses that exist for wine racks!

Shortly after this, Nick had a need for one more rack. This one had to be custom though which is no problem for us here at WineRacks.com as all of our wood wine racks are expertly manufactured right here in the United States of America. As a result, we can follow your racking from the design stage to milling which makes custom designs possible. We worked with Nick to create a custom size double tier island merchandiser that would fit the style of the ones Lake Geneva Country Meat already had but that would also fit into a particular space in the store.

We designed one at the width Nick required and he loved it.

I just wanted to let you know we have the custom rack assembled, in place and it’s perfect, thank you very much for getting that together for us. It was just in time for Christmas.

It is great to see your wine racks in such a beautiful finished space and to form such a fantastic partnership along the way.

Remember, if you like what you see but are unsure of what will work in your space then you can always request a custom design.

Also, if you’ve purchased a rack or installed a custom cellar from us and would like to be featured in our blog then don’t hesitate to e-mail me at Shannon@wineracks.com.

Wine Wednesday: Designing a Wine Cellar for Homefront Design

At WineRacks.com, we pride ourselves on designing and building quality wine racks that our clients will be proud to display for a lifetime. All of our wood wine racks are expertly manufactured right here in the United States of America so we can follow your racking from the design stage to milling all the way through shipping. We even offer the option for install.

Homefront Design is a dealer who truly appreciates those factors listed above. When they contacted us with their newest project, they were delighted to discover that we now offer Chief Architect as one of our design software options. They sent us over the preliminary design that they had been working on and our designer Asia expanded upon it. She listened to what their needs were so that she could match them perfectly.

The result was a design the client loved that translated into a cellar that is both functional and a piece one can be proud to show off.

Testimonial from Homefront Design:

We purposely searched out an American made product. The Wine Rack product line is American made, the company provides terrific customer service and creative design solutions if you need them. The product line offers plenty of standard shapes which would satisfy most layout needs, a great variety of woods and finishes if your project calls for it. I’m looking forward to doing more projects with them.

Thanks guys!

Remember, if you like what you see but are unsure of what will work in your space then you can always request a custom design. This design is free of charge whether your space is a small wine closet or a massive retail store.

Wine Wednesday: A View Into WineRacks.com’s Wine Cellar Design Process

As you might be aware, we offer free custom design consultations for our customers. Unlike many of our competitors, we provide this consultation free of charge no matter how small or large the space. Another thing that sets WineRacks.com apart is the fact that your Cellar Consultant IS your Cellar Designer as well.

As a result, you can be sure there is no miscommunication in the design process as you are speaking directly with the individual who will take you from consultation to finished design. Our designers will make sure that we completely understand what you want to achieve in your wine cellar and how to best achieve that. To do so, we will account for any challenges and limitations that your space may present.

All of this leads to a design that will meet your needs and that is quickly turned around to you. Typically, one of our designers will return a design to you within 24 – 72 hours.

As always, we offer these consultations free of charge, no matter how small or large the space you’re looking to rack is. We will also gladly custom design wine racks if the need arises.

We recently worked with a gentleman in Texas who was converting an old pantry in his house into a wine cellar. He submitted a questionnaire through our site that outlined his ideas so we had an idea of what he wanted. Based on his questionnaire, we knew he wanted modular racking and diamond bins. However, he needed racks at a smaller width than the standard ones we offer on our site due to his space limitations. He also wanted a wood that would match the preexisting cabinet he had in the space.

We worked with him to determine what would not only best fit in his space but what would give him the aesthetic that he was looking for. We decided on our premium modular racking in mahogany for the sides of the space, modified diamond bins in the center and a stemware rack beneath the bins to give it that finishing touch.

We also added a 3/4″ furniture grade veneer plywood back to the diamond bins to complete the look that he was hoping to achieve. The customer decided he would apply a finish to the racks on site so that their color would best match the cabinet these racks would rest upon.

After a short consultation and a quick revision, we provided the client with the SketchUp below.

The client loved the design and quickly signed off on our cellar agreement. From there, we started production on his racks right here in our facility in New York.

The end result is what you see below. The customer was kind enough to send us pictures of the finished racks in their new space as well as a glowing review of his experience with us at WineRacks.com. As you can see, our decay and moisture resistant mahogany wood took to the stain beautifully.

The installation went smoothly and I think the racks came out looking great.

Thanks for your help,

Clint
