"Wine racks made from Terra products™ allow us to provide our clients with an individualized wine room that is both gorgeous and environmentally friendly,” said Gary Daniels, President of Vineyard Wine Cellars of Texas. “Our green efforts continue from the wood down to the finish which is biodegradable, non-ozone depleting, non-toxic and hand crafted from a variety of oils and other natural ingredients."            

Jost Lunstroth, of Vineyard Wine Cellars in Houston, said, "Karen Lantz, an architect in Houston, told me about the product and we quickly built some test racks to make sure the product was both visually acceptable and strong enough. Wine racks have to be strong because a bottle of wine weighs about 3.5 pounds so it is not unusual for the racking to literally hold a ton of wine.”

"This product is strong enough to meet our technical standards and is also attractive so we are comfortable using it for our custom wine racks,” says Ron Cowan of Stellar Cellars.
