Connaught installs new 7,250 bottle capacity wine cellar

Published:  23 July, 2008

London's Connaught Hotel has installed a brand new 7,250 bottle capacity wine cellar as part of a 1 million expansion of its Mayfair address.

The installation was completed by Sorrells Wine Racks but was a difficult project due to space and time limitations at the 5-star hotel.

The Connaught Hotel required a temperature-controlled storage for some 7,250 bottles of wine within 2 adjacent irregular shaped rooms with a combined floor space of only 21 square metres.

Additionally it was required that the wine storage be visually impressive with a small tasting station that could be used by guests whilst selecting their wines.

Tim Lewis. Sorrells managing director, said: "We are a real family business with a lot of combined experience. In these situations everyone just does what has to be done to get the job completed."
