Flower Mound, Texas is a city of approximately70,000 people located about 40 miles northwest of Dallas.
Wine Cellar Specialists were askedto design and build not only a wine cellar but an adjoining tasting room.
The current room was an existing office with built in cabinets.
Wait until you see theresults.
We began the project with a drawing of thespace.
What you are looking at here is an overhead view of both the wine cellar andthe tasting area.
Each elevation is shown with a letter.
Elevations A, B, and C arein the wine cellar while elev D is in the tasting area.
Elevation A are the side walls,Elevation B are the curved corners and Elevation C is the back wall.
Elevation D is the bararea.
We will take a look at each elevation.
Elevation A are the side walls.
They consistof solid diamond bins on the bottom, High reveal display rows with light valance andindividual bottle storage above.
We included a 4” solid wood piece to mount the ladderrail.
The base molding in the entire cellar is a standard 1 ½” molding.
The crown moldingis 4” tall.
Elevation B is the shorter curved corner rackthat sits on top of the double deep tabletop that runs the length of the back wall.
Thereis a curved corner rack on each end.
This rack has a high reveal display row with lightvalance as well.
Elevation C is the back wall of the wine cellar.
The bottom section is double deep with X bins and rolling case storage.
The tabletop ismade from wine infusion style of reclaimed wine barrels.
The upper section is singledeep.
We have a solid arch centered with a puck light above.
High reveal display rowswith light valance are on each side.
The left and right upper sections are individual bottlestorage.
Above the arch are horizontal racks that will hold magnum size bottles.
A 4”wood section holds the ladder rail.
Elevation D is in the tasting room.
This iswhat we call the BAR area.
The lower cabinets on each side have adjustable shelves inside.
In the center we provided the two drawers with self-closure hardware and integratedframes attached to the doors of the refrigerator.
The refrigerator is made to house drinkingtemperature white wines on one side and beer and soft drinks on the other.
We used a Ulinebrand 3036 model built in refrigerator made to accept the integrated face frame.
The bottomsection is 25” deep.
A tabletop is above this section and made from infusion stylereclaimed wine barrel wood.
The upper section is 13 ½” deep.
The center is an enclosedcabinet with adjustable wood shelves.
Led lighting surrounds the front door area onboth sides and above inside this cabinet.
To the left and right are wood shelves.
Thebottom shelves include a glass rack underneath.
At the top of the bar we included 4 closedwood cabinets for more storage.
The crown molding is 4” in height.
We also includedindirect led lighting above the cabinets behind the molding.
All knobs and handles were suppliedby Wine Cellar Specialists and are from our Vineyard Collection.
The grill cover that is mounted on the ceiling of the wine cellar covers the RM3600 twinevaporator system.
It is made for easy access to the units for maintenance.
This drawing shows the facing for the front venting refrigerator.
Now a look at all in 3d.
This is the overhead view.
You can see where the cooled wine cellaris located and the tasting area.
Note on the drawings the Stone on the walls and ceilingof the tasting area.
You will see this clearer in the photos to follow.
This is a view if looking in through the windows from the outside of the home.
Inside the tasting area looking at the wine cellar from the outside.
A little closer view.
Inside the wine cellar.
Outside the tasting area showing the gate area and window areasThe bar area in the tasting room and through the door and sidelights into the cellar.
Shown without the door wall.
Now let’s look at the finished product.
Here is the entrance to the tasting room.
We added a double eyebrow arched gate.
Thearch matches the curve of several other arches in that area of the clients’ home.
Aroundthe arched gate we added a stone frame using Stonecoat.
This is a product made from crushedlimestone from France.
It is blown on and hand carved to the design of your choice.
It is then hand colored as well.
We used this material outside the gate as well as on thewalls and ceiling of the tasting area.
Here is a close-up of one of the iron grapesused in the gate design.
From the inside, you see the back of the gateand the left corner.
The digital controller for the wine cellar is mounted on the wallabove the light switches to the wine cellar.
A corner of the first sidelight is shown inthe photo.
The stone design inside the cellar was made to be a rough uncut stone at thebottom, blending up into more of a cut stone effect above with some old brick showing through.
A closeup of the stone at the side of the door shows where we have incorporated thelook of stone and morter with bricks showing through where it looks like the stone hasfallen off.
Near the bottom the stone is more of a cavestone look.
The door is a 36 x 96 door with a window oneach side of the same size.
The doors are a Knotty Alder with Chappo stain and lacquer.
All have duel pane glass.
The door includes an automatic door bottom and full weatherstripping.
Above the door you see more of the stone andbrick look we added to all the walls and ceiling of the tasting room.
Here is a closer view.
As we move to the right you can see the Chandelierwhich hangs from the center of the ceiling and part of the bar area.
The bar is also in Knotty Alder with Chappo stain and lacquer.
It includes open shelveson the left and right with glass racks.
The center section has glass front door and alighted cabinet.
All across the top and on the two sides of the bottom are solid doorcabinets.
The bottom cabinets include adjustable shelves inside.
The tabletop is made fromthe inside of wine barrels.
It is the Infusion style wine barrel tabletop and is staineda deep reddish color from the wine that was in the barrels used.
The lower center includestwo drawers that have self-closing hardware.
We then added an overlay that matches therest of the bar, to the front venting wine fridge.
This fridge was added for a placeto keep some drinking temperature white wines as well as beer and sodas.
Here is a view of the entire bar area.
It reaches wall to wall.
We also added led lightingabove the bar for some indirect lighting.
Here is a close up view of the upper cabinetsThe center bar area.
Note the stone showing through the left and right areas.

Both the tasting room and the wine cellar have the Cooperage wine barrel flooring.
TheCooperage flooring is made from the tops and bottoms of wine barrels and has Cooperagestamps in various places which are from the markings on the barrels.
A look at the window wall of the tasting room.
We had the existing shutters removed, painted,and installed back into place.
The wine barrel flooring and the stone wallslook great together in this room.
In the corner you can see how the stone changesfrom the bottom to the top and how the brick is incorporated into the design.
A closer look at the stone walls.
You can barely notice the light switches as the coloringis very close.
Here is the back side of the double iron doorsas we have made our way all around the tasting room.
The ceiling of stone shows through when looking up at the very bottom of the chandelier.
The handle set and lock to the wine cellar is Victorian style from the catalog on ourweb site.
It was manufactured in Oil Rubbed Bronze.
Let’s walk into the wine cellar The inside includes a scroll knobThe wine racks are made from unfinished all heart redwood.
The left side of the cellarincludes individual bottle storage, a ladder rail, an led lighted high reveal display rowand solid diamond bins.
The corners are a true radius design.
Theback wall is double deep on the bottom making a tabletop along the entire back wall.
Belowthe tabletop are solid double deep X bins and rolling double deep case storage.
The crown moldings are 4” high.
There is a 4” solid area all around thecellar where the ladder rails can solidly attach.
Here is a close up of the brackets that attach the rails to the racks.
The cooperage flooring flows through from the tasting room to the wine cellar.
Hereyou can also get a better look at the solid diamond bins.
The corner where the single deep side meets with the double deep back wall.
Here you can see the lighted display row over the tabletop and a portion of the solid arch.
The case storage is on rolling shelves.
This allows easy access to the back cases.
