Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 9, 2010
With a robust selection of exotic and sustainable wood from around the world, Vineyard Wine Cellars (http://www.vineyardwinecellars.com) can help you create a custom wine room as unique as your collection.
“We strive to offer our clients a broad selection of wood so they can choose the ideal look for their wine racks,” said Gary Daniels, president of the award winning custom wine storage designer of Texas, Vineyard Wine Cellars. “Our long standing partnership with Stellar Cellars offers the widest range of wood choices for clients. This ensures that every aspect of designing a wine rack, right down to the wood, is truly custom.”
The material provided by Stellar Cellars (http://www.stellarcellars.com) of Portland, Ore. is more than just aesthetically pleasing, part of the beauty is in the quality.
“All the wood is moisture resistant and dense. It will be able to stand up to the humidity found in wine rooms,” said Ron Cowan, president of Stellar Cellars. “The wood and structure of our wine racks are strong enough to support the weight of collections that can weigh thousands of pounds.”
Cowan added the wood his company provides is Chain of Custody (CoC) certified, meaning all products are verified to come from properly managed and sustainable sources.
Examples of the types of wood include:
•Ipe - originating from Brazil
•Bamboo - found in the tropics
•Lyptus - from the Eucalyptus tree
•Cumala - originating in South America
•Padauk - from Southeast Asia
•Bloodwood - found in Venezuela and Peru
•Teak - indigenous to India
•Pau Ferro - found in Mozambique and Bolivia
While most commercial wine racks are made from Redwood or Mahogany, Jost Lunstroth of Vineyard Wine Cellars in Houston, said his clients prefer the luxury of a broad selection of hardwoods.
“We have built custom wine racks using Soule’ for a private home in Memorial, Wenge in a home in the Memorial Villages, Bubinga for a 15-foot tall wine wall in an Austin restaurant, Sapele for a 4,000-bottle cellar also in Austin and most recently Tigerwood in a wine cellar in the Rice Village area,” he said.
To help with the selection process, clients are allowed to keep a large selection of samples to get a better feel for what type of wood fits best in their home or business.
“They can spend as much time with the samples as necessary to make sure they are completely satisfied with the final choice,” Lunstroth said. “They know the decision is based on more than just color. It is about the grain, the feel and even the personality of the wood.”
