Custom New Jersey Tasting Room and Glass Wine Cellar

17' x 17' custom tasting room

This particular client has an interesting story. We had built a wine cellar about 15 years ago (no frills) in their basement. 3 kids later and they simply lost the basement! This family loves to entertain and became sick and tired of everyone in the kitchen!

They decided to put an addition on the house to create a grown up “play room” with a new wine cellar, 17’x 17′ tasting room, butler’s pantry with dishwasher, and bathroom. This was everything the downstairs wasn’t – lots of glass, led lighting, custom metal wine pegs, gorgeous mill-work, and back-lit panels.

The wine cellar hold about 1,000 bottles and sits in a 12′ x 6′ niche just off of the tasting room. The wine cellar has custom wine racks which can hold 750 ml, 1.5 ml, 3 ltr, and 5 ltr wine bottles. Several baker racks are lit with led tape light as well as all of the metal pegs. The tasting room has a large rustic table and can comfortably sit 10-12 adults (the perfect spot to unwind and converse) and just in case there is a game on there is a flat screen as well as a sound system.

The butler’s pantry has custom cabinets for storage, a dishwasher, and marble top. You enter into the tasting room through 2 large rolling barn doors which are speak-easy style doors and do an incredible job announcing the space. The room has become the entertaining spot of the home and the kids didn’t have to lose their play areas in the basement. Once again there is no substitute for a great design team and why custom is always better!
