While there is much to admire about this breathtaking underground wine cellar - from its bricked groin vault ceiling to its eye-catching arched walls - the most unique characteristic of this cellar in Newport Beach, California is undoubtedly its vintique racking. Vintique wine racking, signified by having been built entirely from recycled barrels and fermentation tanks, stands as the defining feature of this 1,200 bottle cellar.
Constructed from reclaimed oak from Northern California wineries, the materials used to create the racking give this cellar an authentic and unmistakable character and smell. Throughout the custom racking that holds standard, magnum, and other large format sizes, one finds various winery logos burned into the wood, giving the cellar an unmatched individuality and distinction.
As one continues to explore this underground wine cellar, they will notice the varying shades of color among the different racking. By facing the insides of the former barrels outward, Vintage Cellars incorporated subtle shades of burgundy throughout the cellar. Upon further examination, one also finds that many racking sections are gently curved, serving as a reminder of the oak’s prior use as a wine barrel.
One of the greatest challenges faced in constructing this underground wine cellar was fitting the racking within the magnificent arches of cellar. By carefully sanding the framing and utilizing a laser level, the various levels of horizontal, diamond and standard racking were able to fit seamlessly and comfortably within the structure of this spacious wine cellar.
The final and perhaps most noteworthy aspect of this cellar, and any cellar with vintique racking, is its dimension of sustainability. Because the custom racking is composed of only recycled materials, vintique cellars are ideal for wine collectors that are conscientious of their carbon footprint.
