Building Your Wine Cellar
When building a wine room, there are technical requirements that can be provided only by a knowledgeable company. There are many factors to consider when creating a wine cellar design:
- Location and size of your room
- Number of bottles intended to be stored in the cellar
- Wine cellar furniture to be placed in the room
- Amount of insulation
Our passionate and creative team will make sure that your collection is safe from harmful environmental factors like heat, vibration, and odor. We install high-quality components for maximum efficiency and durability.
Regulating the Wine Room Temperature by Preventing Excessive Heat and UV Light Exposure
You must protect your wine collection from too much heat exposure. Heat is the main enemy of wine. Thus, your wines must be stored in a climate-controlled environment.
When the temperature in your wine cellar fluctuates, the chemical properties of the wine will be altered. This will cause the cork to be pushed out of the bottle, allowing an unwanted amount of air to enter the bottle. When oxygen mixes with the wine, oxidation will occur and result in off flavors and unpleasant aromas.
Do you know why wine bottles are made of colored and thick glass? This is to protect the wine from excessive exposure to ultraviolet light, which can damage the wine in a few hours.
At Custom Wine Cellars Los Angeles, we make sure that an efficient wine cellar cooling system is installed in your cellar. We also see to it that light will not damage your favorite vintages by installing an LED lighting system.
Why Use LED Lights?
Fluorescent and incandescent bulbs are popular lighting fixtures used in residential and commercial wine rooms. However, many people do not know the negative effects of these types of lighting systems. Some of these effects include too much heat emission and exposure to UV rays, which will damage the quality of your wine.
The best wine cellar builders in Los Angeles recommend the LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting system. It will not only keep your collection safe from deteriorating; it will also keep your energy bills at a normal level. LED lights last longer than other types of bulbs.
Importance of Keeping the Humidity at a Normal Level
Another factor that has a big impact on the wine’s quality is humidity. It must be kept between 60-70 percent.
The humidity level must not be too low to prevent the cork from shrinking and drying out. Additionally, it must not be too high to protect your wine collection, racking, and labels from molds.
To achieve constant humidity levels, our team installs the correct insulation and wine refrigeration system in our client’s wine cellar.

Custom Wine Cellar Projects by Custom Wine Cellars Los Angeles
View some of the custom residential and commercial wine cellar projects recently completed by Coastal Custom Wine Cellars in Los Angeles, one of our partners in building wine cellars. They are one of the best wine cellar builders in Los Angeles.
Contemporary Design Created by a Top-Notch Wine Cellar Builder for a Home in Los Angeles
This project started in January 2014 and completed in June 2014. Coastal Custom Wine Cellars installed Mahogany wine racks with a chestnut stain and satin finish. They included various racking configurations such as single storage, horizontal display, wooden case storage bins, and high-reveal display rows.
To achieve a contemporary appeal, they went for a seamless glass wall and entry. Another advantage of having glass doors installed is that it allows a clear view of the owner’s wine display from outside the wine room.
For the refrigeration system, Coastal Custom Wine Cellars installed Arctic Air split refrigeration system by Arctic Metalworks Inc. The evaporator was placed above the tabletop area.
Transformation of a Kitchen into an Elegant Custom Residential Wine Cellar
On this project, Coastal Custom Wine Cellars used Premium Redwood wine racks. The wood’s natural beauty added character to the wine room. They incorporated individual bottle openings, label forward display racks, double-deep square bins, and a tabletop.
They left the entire racking unfinished except for the tabletop. The tabletop provides a place for serving and decanting wines. In order to protect the surface of the tabletop from scrape or spills, they finished it with lacquer.
Coastal Custom Wine Cellars used the CellarPro self-contained top vent wine cellar refrigeration system to achieve the optimum storage conditions. For the entryway, they installed a Barolo style glass door with a wooden frame. The glass panels are dual-paned to help the cooling unit in achieving the optimum storage conditions.
