Climate Control

Wine needs to be stored at a constant temperature; however conventional air conditioning units dry out wine corks, leading to wine oxidation. Our discreet, state-of-the-art ducted, split and through-the-wall units ensure correct humidity levels for optimum wine preservation.

LED Lighting

We will tailor-make the lighting in your wine room to suit your style, be it bold and bespoke, or concealed and classic. A combination of concealed low-heat-emitting LED’s and soffit-mounted angled spots will help to showcase your collection to its maximum potential.

Technical knowledge

Our design team will be able to advise you on the correct specifications of moisture-resistant materials and water-based finishes to use that wont cause cork taint. And to prevent oxidation of your wine, we utilise correct bottle storage methods and display angles.
