Staying at home and only going out for essentials is everyone’s effort to help stop the spread of the novel coronavirus. I don’t know how you make yourself stay home, but one thing for sure is Chuck Allen and Rilla Delorier will be pretty happy to be stuck at home, even though, by nature, they are the outgoing types.
Well, I guess it helps to have some indoor love. Anywho, the Portland, Oregon couple had a dream wine room they wanted. They had three simple wishes which they engaged interior designer Candace Ullal to translate into reality.
The result is the Eagle Point Wine Cellar & Lounge. And oh, the wine cellar with the series of beautiful wine racks you see there? It was the work of art of Sommi Wine Cellars. When Sommi Wine Cellars was roped in to complete the final piece of the puzzle of the dream wine room, they continued the look and feel set out by Candace.
Everything you see in the photos is custom – from the handcrafted, leather-clad racking system to the bulk storage compartments. The wine cellar has a capacity of over 1,000 bottles and it is complete with climate control for the perfect temperature for wines. In addition, it has two Perlick wine fridges dedicated to white wines and champagne.
Other features include user-controlled multi-colored lighting, a forged steel library ladder that glides along the entire length of the cellar, plus incredible attention to detail, including the hummingbird cutout step lights that are actually matching with those found on the bar upstairs. Yes, there is a bar upstairs too.
