Cooling Considerations in Your Wine Room
Wine storage for restaurants and bars vary in complexity and function from project to project with wine rooms ranging from the size of a single-door cabinet to a three-story tower. When building a wine room within a bar or restaurant the same wine cellar building “best practices” should be followed. As with all wine cellars, insulation and vapor barrier are key; insulation is especially important in restaurant and bar applications. A minimum of R30 insulation should be used on all ceiling and floor areas and R21 or higher on wall areas.
The majority of wine rooms are used as showcases with high visibility within the facility and as such, can include glass walls and doors for viewing. Glass should be double-paned design which offers some insulation properties and prevents sweating. Single-pane glass should be avoided, but if left with no choice then a minimum of ½” (1 cm) glass should be used.
When sizing a cooling unit for a restaurant or bar, the cubic foot method should be avoided at all costs as the amount of in-out traffic, bottle rotation, glass and insulation are an extremely important variable that need to be considered.
