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!”

Exploring’s Retail Wine Racks in the Local Community

As fantastic as it is to work on any wine cellar project, we can’t help but find something special about giving back to the local community. We’ve completed three local wine stores in recent months and each retail location was more than happy to share pictures of their completed spaces.

Hudson Valley Wine Market is a boutique wine and spirits shop in Gardiner, NY. This store has a focus on local wines so it is only natural they wanted to include locally made wine racks.

Hudson Valley Wine Market – Gardiner, NY

Our American made single tier wall merchandisers work beautifully with the wall mounted VintageView racks to create a mix of sleek metal and wood. This sort of racking system not only looks lovely but allows you to make the most of your space when looking to maximize bottle storage.

If you’re looking for wall mounted storage but need something that provides more bulk storage then our two column bin display merchandisers and three column bin display merchandisers may be just what you need. These racks offer bulk storage so even the oddest shaped bottle can be housed securely. The also feature a display in front to further show off the bottles you’re storing.

Terri’s Wine & Spirits – Salt Point, NY

Terri’s Wine & Spirits opted for those racks and had nothing but kind things to say.

I have to thank Mark Karpinski – he is a great salesperson, and did an AWESOME job helping me design my store. I’m getting lots of compliments on the beautiful wine racks that line my space. He is not only knowledgeable, but extremely passionate about what he does. His advice is important to me, because he has a real eye for design. It’s always a true pleasure to work with him.

Finally, there’s also racks like the single tier and double tier islands if you’re looking to utilize the most of your floor space. Village Wine & Spirits had just completed a major renovation and now needed racking to house their ever larger selection of beer, wine and spirits. Our island wine racks allowed Village Wine & Spirits to maximize their space in an efficient and attractive manner.

Tips & Tricks For Wine Cellars: Lighting Your Wines and Wine Racks


While every wine rack and cellar differs in form, style and size, the purpose they all share is to protect and display a valuable and delicate treasure: your wine collection.

So, while your racking is important there are a few other details you will want to consider. One of them is lighting. After all, you’re going to want to show off your extensive array of wines!

However, wine safety is critical and not just any lighting will do as you want to make sure you keep your wines at about 55°F.

The LED lighting we offer will help show off your collection without overheating your precious wines as LED lights use 80% less power, produce no UV radiation and generate almost no heat.

As a bonus, LED lighting offers a 50,000-hour lifetime that virtually eliminates the need for replacing the lights.

Whether linear, spotlight or light pool effects, LED lighting creates an evenly lit space with appropriate highlights of bottles, shelves or room elements. All the low-profile lights are designed so that you see the effect but not the fixture. These dimmable lights offer brightness control for luminosity that is always perfect.


Need some help determining what type of lighting will work best in your space? Don’t hesitate to give us a call at 856-658-7181 or email us at and let us help.

We can provide everything from the wine racks to the cellar door, lighting, cooling unit and more.

Thirsty Thursday: Our American Made Mahogany Racks in Mark & Toni’s Coal Fired Pizza


While our premium cellar series racks are primarily used within the home there’s some fantastic retail applications for them as Mark & Toni’s Coal Fired Pizza found out first hand.

When Nick from Mark & Toni’s Coal Fire Pizza called in he had an idea of what he wanted but our associate Kelly Nulty was quick to assist with some additional questions he had.

The restaurant eventually decided on two of our Premium Series Full Height Solid Diamond Bin Wine Rack in mahogany and two Premium Series 1 Column Individual Bottle Wine Racks in mahogany.


As you can see, the racks came out beautifully and fit well into this upscale restaurant and wine bar. As we’ve discussed before, mahogany’s rich coloring and durability make it a popular choice for all types of projects. While mahogany is a bit more expensive than some of our other wood options the value of it is quite clear.


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.

We can provide everything from the wine racks to the cellar door, lighting, cooling unit and more. So, let us be your one stop shop for all your wine cellar needs.
