The cellar is a meaningful addition to this traveling family. Not only does the wine cellar house some amazing wines from all over the world, but more importantly the memories of their experiences of visiting vineyards and meeting new friends along the way. Their wine collecting journey has taken them all over the world so we wanted to build them a world class wine cellar.
The space would not be what it is without the ancient technique used on the interior walls. They are lined with a specialty Marmorino Italian plastering imported from Italy. This finish is proven over time to be the pinnacle to all Venetian plasters and the Italians refer to it as the Son of Marble. The plaster is made using a genuine Italian limestone mixed with fine Carrara marble aggregate—applied by an artisanal applicator—that, when light reflects on the finish, enriches the colors, giving organic warmth to the walls.

As you open the custom iron and glass door, a spectacle of LED lighting backlights the over 700 wine bottles. The effect is beautiful, and highlights the glistening glass from floor to ceiling.
