Today is National Wine Day. To celebrate, we raise a glass to toast the finest wine cellars in New York City. As the level of luxury in residential buildings continues to go as high as the skyscrapers themselves, these wine amenity spaces give residents options to store, taste and enjoy their wines in the highest style.
357 West 17th Street is a spectacular private townhome that is redefining luxury in the West Chelsea Arts District. This jaw-dropping, 11,000-square foot mansion has endless extras like an indoor pool, rooftop deck, a screening room and a sensational 480 bottle capacity wine cellar with LED backlighting and separate temperature control. The cellar has a beautiful original brick wall and barrel ceilings. There are also additional wine refrigerators in the home’s primary kitchen and two wet bars in case you don’t want to schlep around the 11,000 square feet.
Situated in the Carnegie Hill neighborhood, 180 East 88th Street is a sleek condominium developed and designed by DDG. The luxury condominium features 48 graciously-appointed private residences ranging from lofts to five-bedrooms, full-floor and duplex units and a gracious triplex penthouse. The building’s beautifully designed, temperature-controlled wine cellar features private storage wine cabinets, available for purchase. Artfully connecting back to the building’s grand archways, the luxurious wine cellar offers the perfect place for residents to house their favorite bottles as well as conduct private tastings with guests.
Situated in the East End enclave of the Upper East Side, 20 East End Avenue is a luxury condominium designed inside and out by the renowned Robert A.M. Stern Architects. In addition to a variety of club-inspired amenities, there is a spectacular wine cellar with a private dining room and chef’s prep kitchen.
The warmly lit space is complete with an antique dining table that seats 12, slate floors, walls covered in rich, grey Venetian plaster and a stately fireplace. A lofty, vaulted ceiling with exposed wooden beams and glass-paneled black metal French doors add to the ambiance, along with thoughtful details such as an integrated sound system for events. Gravel imported from Bordeaux lines the elegant wine armoires to fully transport residents to wine country. With the total cellar storage of 8,200 bottles, the wine armoires are equipped with a climate control system designed to regulate temperature and humidity for optimal storage. Once residents are done in the wine room, they can wander up to the billiards room or go sit and enjoy the library fire.
Situated in Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn Point is Extell Development Company’s first building in the neighborhood and will be the highest tower in Brooklyn. Brookyn Point will offer 40,000 square feet of amenities to its residents. Chief among these is an superiorly designed wine room. “Residents will have access to one of the most beautiful wine rooms in the city,” says Ari Goldstein, SVP at Extell. “The Wine Library, designed by AD100 designer Katherine Newman, can store over 1,200 wine bottles at optimum refrigerated temperature. The room is complete with a tasting table and opens out onto the landscaped terrace so you can imbibe indoors and out.”
A sanctuary for all oenophiles, this rich space is defined by custom millwork framing the dramatically illuminated wine cellars. For residents that would like to enjoy their wine with a bit to eat, they can channel their culinary skills with multiple cooktops and ovens in a a full service chef’s kitchen.
Jeffrey Beers International designed a sleek wine room on the Club Level of the Ralph Walker-designed One Hundred Barclay Street. It is conveniently located next to the 54 wine lockers (which are for sale to oenophile residents in the building); each locker holds more than 100 bottles. The wine tasting room can be reserved in advance and should residents have a larger group, they can take over the resident’s lounge also located on the Club Level. The locker room is chilled to the perfect temperature of approximately 55 degrees and New York Vintners will be on hand to provide sommelier services, wine tastings and wine locker stocking for an additional fee.
Designed by world-renowned architect Thierry W Despont, each of the 33 homes at the famed Woolworth Tower Residences will come with wine storage for approximately 185 bottles of wine. The condominium owners will be able to sip their wine in the tasting room of this New York City landmark.
