Dedicated Wine Room for a High-End Customized Home

With a focus on raw wine storage capacity, design and aesthetics, IWA built this dedicated wine room with a 2,000 bottle capacity in Tiburon, California.

Background & Goals

  • Dedicated 300 cu. ft. wine room in high-end home in Tiburon, California.
  • The wine room aesthetic had to match the rest of the high-end custom home.
  • Maximizing bottle capacity was important.
  • Creating a "wow" factor for visitors, friends and guests was also important.

Wine Room Layout

  • Opposite the door we placed a beautiful tabletop archway with dramatic display racking above the arch.
  • To enlarge the countertop space and maximize bottle capacity, we designed double-deep solid-wood diamond racks below the tabletop.
  • In the dead corners of the cellar we created half-hidden bin storage.
  • The racks extended from floor to ceiling, which also increased bottle capacity, and we designed a rolling ladder for access to bottles near the ceiling.
  • We placed rectangular bins on the side walls for easy access to wood and carton cases.
  • We used double display rows with LED accent lighting for maximum drama and impact.

Wine Room Design Elements

  • Worked with owner and interior designer to choose finishes that would match the décor in the other rooms on that floor.
  • Wine racks were made from mahogany with a dark walnut stain.
  • The arched wine cellar door was designed to match the arch on the rear wall of the wine cellar.
  • Tinted double-pane glass in the door provides thermal and UV protection inside the wine cellar.
  • Stained ladder and cellar floors to match.
  • Crown and base moldings, beveled ends and eased edges provided high-end finishing touches.

Wine Cellar Refrigeration

  • Installed a CellarPro 3200VS cooling system.
  • Located system in an adjacent room to remove compressor noise and create additional space inside the cellar.
  • Moved the controls and digital readout of the cooling unit to the entrance of the wine cellar for easy monitoring.
