Chef Neil Perry chose to work with Vintec Australia and Transtherm for wine storage solutions at his restaurant, Rockpool Est. 1989.
The interiors of Rockpool Est. 1989 were designed by Grant Cheyne with the same masterful approach that Perry uses to create unforgettable dining experiences. Likewise, only the most reliable and state-of-the-art appliances and technology were selected for the restaurant to meet the standards of this world renowned chef.
So when it came to storing and serving wine, Cheyne approached Vintec to help conceive wine storage solutions for two different locations in the restaurant. For the lower level, the designer selected – in consultation with Rockpool’s sommelier – five Vintec 170 bottle climate-controlled wine cellars. Featuring top-to-bottom LED lighting, the Danish-made cabinets impressively showcased the restaurant’s wine collection to patrons entering the premises.
On the upper floor, a climate-controlled ‘Grant cellar’ was built, fully enclosed in glass, to store the restaurant’s historic wine collection. Vintec and Cheyne selected the shelving system used in the luxury Transtherm Espace walk-in cellar. Ordered from France, the shelving used to complete the ‘Grant cellar’ featured a total of 13 bays and 156 shelves.
