Robb Sheele, owner of Vista Wine Cellars in Vista, California, was asked to
transform what was once a closet in a fairly typical family room, into a
stunning glass enclosed wine cellar that would become the main focal point
of the room. The requirements for the cellar were as follows:

• Must be aesthetically pleasing with a modern, clean look
• Handle maximum bottle capacity-Needed to store 2,000 bottles
• Functional with easy access

To accomplish the clients requests, Robb selected the VintageView® Wine
Storage System for its contemporary, label-forward and modular design. For
easy access to the back bottles, Robb utilized a rail system attaching
VintageView’s triple-deep Wall Series racks onto sliding Bamboo frames.
Racking for magnums and additional case storage was added to round out the
cellar. In addition to complimenting the homes contemporary design, the
VintageView metal wine racks are easy to install, provide prompt bottle
recognition and ensure proper moisture of the cork.

Label-forward racking allows wine lovers the opportunity to better engage
with their favorite wines. These homeowners are overjoyed with the result
and find themselves entertaining quite a bit more.

It has been a couple of months now and we have added the artwork to the beautiful wine room you built for us.  I cannot say enough about how pleased Mimi and I are with the finished product.  The design was excellent given the space available.  Your imagination and creativity made it all come together in providing us with a place to show over 700 bottles of wine.  The workmanship is excellent, down to the last detail which does not go unnoticed by all those who see the “work of art” you created as they enter our home.  The different sizes of bottles all fit where they should and the openness and space from top to bottom makes the wine room easy to access and use whenever we want.  The lighting is perfect and the cooling system works better than we expected.  The door you created for us is also perfect blending into the wall and making such a statement when people look at it and then into the room when it is lit, displaying our wine and the great work you have done. 

 The timeline that you presented to us was met and you did what you said you would do in completing the entire project when you said you would.  You did more than meet our expectations, you exceeded them.  We have recommended you to our friends and would not hesitate for a moment, let those who want to build a wine cellar or wine room for their home, to have you be the one to build it for them.  We want to thank you again for not only giving us the wine room we had hoped for but also the value it has provided in the care of our wine collection and the additional value it has also created for our home.  We appreciate all that you did and wish you great success.

Owen and I are delighted with the 40 sq. ft. wine cellar that you built at our new home at The Crosby. There was delay after delay because of our builder which interferred with your schedule but you never once put us on the back burner. When escrow closed you were in our house the next day.

You and your staff went beyond the call of duty to please us and WE THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Yours Truly,
Marilyn O'Brien


I had the pleasure of working with Vista Wine Cellars on a Wine Cellar for one of our valued clients. From the first meeting to the finish product, I found their craftsmanship. commitment to details, and work ethics to be of the highest standard. Robb was able to meet our clients budget and completed the project in the time frame as promised. Robb was easily accessible and easy to communicate with. All of my calls were returned in a prompt and timely manner.

I would highly recommend Vista Wine Cellars to anyone interested finding a professional and friendly builder of custom wine cellars for their home or business.
