Sorrells Custom Wine Cellars are expert in designing, manufacturing and installing wine storage.
Wine cellars don’t have to be below-ground; they can be anything from a spare room to a converted garage or custom built space.
Whether you’re a serious wine connoisseur or simply a wine lover we’ll provide you with a design which will transform your space into a fully functional luxury wine cellar.
Site Survey and Design
First we discuss your goals and your wish list of features. Then we follow up with a site survey to flesh out the details. No project is too challenging for us: we’re very used to wonky walls and in-the-way pillars! We want to get you the perfect solution and help you visualise your prospective wine room with the latest in 3D visuals. If you’ve appointed architects or builders, we are more than happy to work to their plans. We will also advise on such elements as wine cellar climate control, waterproofing, lighting and security.
Perfectly Stored Wine
You’ll want your wine collection not only to look good, but ensure it’s stored correctly at the right temperature and humidity too. Sorrells’ wine cellar climate control technology is designed to fit within the fabric of your construction. Our systems use either air or water-cooling combined with heating and humidity options. Plus, you can check in on your wine wherever you are in the world and make sure optimum conditions are being maintained. Learn more.
Structural waterproofing below ground is a highly specialised operation, which is why we always trust A.P. Gooch Basement Waterproofing for this job. Their surveyors are C.S.S.W. qualified (Certified Surveyor in Structural Waterproofing) and have years of experience in the design and implementation of waterproofing systems. There are usually two options for waterproofing, either involving a cavity drain membrane or a cementitious multi-coat render.
LED and Mirror Acrylic
Finishing touches and extra flourishes make your wine cellar or wine room come alive. Track lighting systems bring a subtle feel to the space; alternatively, use LED spotlights to enhance your display further. A dramatic effect that adds depth to the space is achieved with mirror acrylics. Available in silver or gold, they are fitted to the walls or to the backs of the racking, and add a ‘wow’ factor.
Cabinetry, Doors and Tables
We care about quality – that’s why we manufacture all our cabinets, doors and frames in-house using the very best materials. The results not only look great, our wood and glass doors are sufficiently thick, and specially sealed, to ensure your wine is kept in the best possible way. To optimise your wine room for socialising, consider a bar or tasting table. Hand-worked in our workshop and fitted on site, we have a range of materials and designs to choose from.
Installation and Finishing
In the same way we make everything in-house at Sorrells, we also only use our own dedicated fitters. Each member of the Sorrells’ team is passionate about their craft, and will always go the extra mile to ensure you absolutely love the results.
Insure your wine with Flint Private Clients: specialists in high-net-worth homes and wine insurance
If wine is your passion and you’re building a collection, ensuring you have appropriate insurance cover is vital for protecting your financial investment. Reinstatement following a loss can be expensive. So when it comes to insuring what you love, don’t overlook your wine.
We’ve recommended Mike Nightingale at Flint Private Clients for many years. Flint is an industry expert and their approach ensures that insurance is tailored to you: they don’t simply provide a “one size fits all” solution.
Flint works with market leading insurers who have developed a range of products designed to meet the unique requirements of high-net-worth individuals. Drawing on its extensive knowledge and a wealth of expertise, Flint Private Clients prides itself on providing first-class service.
Cover for wine under the fine art section of an insurance policy can include:
- Agreed value for specified bottles following an insured loss;
- Extended replacement cover for specified bottles to protect against under insurance (where a professional valuation has been carried out within 3 years of the date of loss);
- Newly acquired bottles can be covered automatically allowing time to advise your insurer;
- Worldwide cover for all risks including fire, theft, accidental breakage and flood leading to damage of wine labels and any subsequent depreciation in value;
- Defective title cover for bottles purchased through professional dealers.
