Designing Wine Racks For a Local, Upscale Wine Restaurant


We love working with local businesses! Here’s a look at our Made In America wood wine racks in Nic L Inn Wine Cellar in Poughkeepsie. Our mahogany single tier wall merchandiser was stained black to match the industrial style look that the restaurant was going for.

The rack was then inset into the wall itself. We used our Elemental LED lighting kits to then make the rack and its precious contents pop. As we mentioned before, there’s definite benefits to using LED lighting in your wine cellar including the fact that they generate little heat.

The black chalkboard paint on the wall is a final, beautiful touch that also allows the restaurant to easily highlight their wine specials.

All of this, when brought together, created just the upscale look that Nic L Inn was going for.

It is great to see so much of the Hudson Valley represented in Nic L Inn, from the local wine racks to the farm to table menu. And it was even better to get a rave review back from Nic L Inn.

“ was so pleasant and easy to work with! They gave us a great price for our custom wine rack, and made it exactly how we needed it, stained it to match our restaurant and installed it for us. It’s perfect to use and to look at! Thanks so much!”

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

At, 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 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.

Wine Wednesday: What’s Cellar Design Process and White Glove Delivery Service Looks Like

We at pride ourselves on our quality crafted, American made wine racks as well as our customer service so it always means a lot to us when we hear back from a satisfied customer.

Mr. Greier of Hopewell Junction, NY submitted an wine cellar questionnaire through our website. He needed guidance on how to layout his space and our designer Asia Armstrong was quick to assist him from start to finish. Asia worked closely with him to best determine what would fit his needs and his space before coming up with the final design.

Once he was satisfied with his design, Mr. Greier also opted for our white glove install. This is a tiered service that we happily offer to our customers here at Our white glove service caters to each individual’s needs and ranges from curb side delivery to a full install. Mr. Greier decided to go with a full install and had the following to say after the entire experience:

Dear Rob, Asia & team at,

My wife and I couldn’t be happier with the white glove service & treatment we received from everyone at during the entire process of our home wine cellar installation. The initial design process was very interactive and helpful, as Asia was very attentive to our needs. She offered excellent suggestions to add design features that we weren’t aware of, always working with our budget. Rob added his more than qualified suggestions & added personal attention that we did not receive at any other company. He sent out wood samples and detailed the white glove installation service, which made our decision to work with a no brainer. All in all, exceeded our expectations at all times, and we are extremely happy with the finished product. We would recommend them to anyone considering a residential or personal cellar. We will have many years of joy & fine wine to come from the new Greier Wine Cellar, established April 2012, designed & installed by!
