Find Your Professional Illinois Wine Cellar Consultant With WCI

What do former US Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Barrack Obama have in common? Apart from, of course, having held the highest political position in the country? Believe it or not, these two leaders were residents of the state of Illinois! In fact, the official state slogan is "Land of Lincoln" which has been displayed on license plates since 1954. Political influences aside, Illinois also boasts of a profusion of fruit orchards and vineyards. That's why wine production is also a big thing in the state. WCI has designed several wine cellar projects for homes and commercial establishments in Illinois. So if you are an Illinois resident, we can make your wine cellar goals come true!

Featured Projects from our Illinois Portfolio

Glass Enclosed Wine Rack - 301439
project #301439
This stunning glass-enclosed wine cellar had the clients raving. It was a narrow space, but the racking units and shelves made everything work perfectly. There is ample bottle storage space and the racking assembly with archway was absolutely elegant.

"Our wine cellar is beautiful! You guys did a fantastic job in fabrication and Fabian did a great job in designing exactly what we were looking for." ~Larry S.~
Designer Allheart Redwood Wine Cellar - 304060
project #304060 - Illinois
"Wine Cellar Innovations was the right choice for my project. I am an engineer and therefore spent more time designing than building. Gabriela not only tolerated all my revisions, but actually made it fun. The beauty was that I got exactly what I wanted and was able to place the order before the price went up. The instructions made it easy to organize and install all the pieces. There was only one piece that was cracked which the company rapidly replaced at no charge to me. With respect to delivery, I would strongly suggest the additional cost of delivery so that pallets are not left at your curb. And last, it was a very pleasant surprise to have received the install kit with a brad nailer at no additional charge. At the end of the day, I would recommend Wine Cellar Innovations to anyone who is considering a large or small wine storage project. " ~Bill Y.~

project #295387 - Illinois Wine Racks

"We LOVE our wine racks!!! We built our wine cellar from scratch ourselves taking a regular sized clothes closet in a spare room in the basement and combining it with a storage room. We initially thought that we would be hand building all the racks ourselves to save on cost and had even started one before we came across Wine Cellar Innovations. It was the best purchase and desicion we made. Building them with an air nailer was so simple and it was amazing to see our room finally come together. We purchased some of the kits and then had your design team create a custom center piece. We truly love our new room! Our 5 year old has even been known to show it off to her friends, haha."

project #240454 - Illinois
Like we always say, wine storage can be built anywhere in one's home, even in places you never thought possible. Sometimes, it takes just a bit of creativity and the right wine racking products to make everything work. Case in point - this unique wine storage that our client Mike put together in his kitchen. He purchased and Open Diamond Cube from WCI and did just a little bit of trimming to make it fit into a space in his kitchen. He was able to mix and match the racking unit with the rest of the kitchen cabinetry. We also like the bluish gray paint on the rack, reminiscent of our Gray Wash stain option.

"Trimmed the wine rack to fit this space and painted it."
~Mike A.~

Important Questions to Ask Before Creating Your Illinois Wine Room

What's the best temperature to keep my wines stored?
The ideal wine storage conditions are at 55-58 F temperature and 55-75% relative humidity. You should strive to keep your wine storage maintain these conditions 24/7. The closer you are to the desired temperature and humidity levels, the more beneficial it will be to the aging of your wine.

What do you recommend for wine cellar lighting?
There are lots of wine cellar lighting accessories that you can choose from these days. But we recommend using LED lighting since this is the most energy efficient way to go. WCI provides LED Ribbon Lighting kits which are super affordable and easy to install.

Can you help me with decorating my wine cellar with art?
Definitely! WCI has an entire section in our website devoted to just wine cellar art. You can choose from available merchandise or have your artwork completely custom made. Our talented professional artists work with a variety of mediums and can even be hired to work on-site.

How do you build a wine rack?
Building a wine rack can be done DIY, especially if you're working with our wine rack kits. We highly recommend utilizing a nail gun as this is the most efficient way to assemble your racks. Plus, you don't need a lot of experience for just simple assemblies. For more complicated and custom racking arrangement, our professional design team can definitely get the job done for you.
