A below-ground cellar with existing stone racking system was already in place at the property. Our clients wanted to enhance the area and create a space for relaxing in, as well as somewhere they could enjoy tasting and experiencing wine at home. On initial inspection it was revealed the cellar was damp. It was essential the cellar was waterproofed prior to the racking’s installation, so we brought in our basement waterproofing and tanking contractor to make good. The cellar has been transformed into a safe and beautiful space for the storage and appreciation of wine.
The tasting station in the middle of the room makes a fabulous centrepiece. Scalloped racking with angled shelving for champagne bottles provides space around the tasting area and additionally creates a strong visual feature. A variety of storage styles sit alongside display cabinets. The access hatches to the tanking system, required as part of the waterproofing solution, are concealed behind an engraved case-rack front which is designed to look like a cabinet.
