love, love, love our wine cellar!
Gary, we wanted to report back to you how much we love, love, love our wine cellar! The cellar itself is a work of art and exceeded our expectations, but it was the professionalism of you and your team that really impressed. Any appointment we ever had with you (measure/design) commenced on time and proceeded in a very efficient manner. Follow-up was swift, and communication was always timely.
When it came to the installation, Jason also exceeded our expectations every step of the way. He was punctual, polite, professional and efficient. There were a few flaws in the raw room where the cellar was to be installed, and Jason was able to adapt to ensure that the finished product looked perfect.
Truly, I can’t thank you enough. Our cellar is now the highlight of our home and brings us more joy than we could have ever expected. Thank you.
Rosehill Wine Cellars is Highly Recommended
My new wine cellar was completed in early December 2018 and I absolutely love it!
Without any hesitation, I recommend Rosehill Wine Cellars Inc. for turnkey design and installation. Why am I giving such a strong recommendation? Here’s why:
1. Design & Quotation: Gary LaRose showed up on time at our home and quickly set to work looking over the area selected for the cellar. He took careful measurements, then re-measured a couple of dimensions again to ensure he was very accurate. He talked through some options for the cooling equipment and racking, as well as cellar design. He then recommended I drop into Rosehill’s showroom to look at some racking choices, materials and finishes, as well as cooling equipment choices. I had already been to the showroom, just before I decided to add Rosehill to my shortlist, but I went back a couple of times to get ideas and make decisions on various items. Rosehill's west end showroom is well laid out and offers several material choices, colours and racking options, which makes the decision-making a lot easier.
A week later I received very good drawings and a detailed quotation. I had a short list of three contractors for this project and without any question, Rosehill’s drawings and quotation were the most detailed and easiest to understand. They also offered the best use of the space, as my cellar was not that big (7ft x 8ft). After some discussion with all three contractors, I narrowed it down to two and then had detailed discussions with both. After a couple of discussions, it became clear that Gary’s experience and practical approach offered the best value for money and a proven track record with lots of satisfied customers to which he could refer. Rosehill's design was a little more imaginative than the other two contractors, particularly the diamond shelf below the stone counter. Also, I really wanted a glass door and glass window beside the door so I could see into the cellar and have its ambience add to our beautiful basement recreation area. Gary came up with a very nice design to achieve this objective, but do it in a way that did not weaken what was a support wall for our two storey home.
So I made the decision to go with Rosehill, subject to a satisfactory contract. The contract paperwork was simple, easy to understand and the milestone payments set to work stages completed was fair.
2. Room Preparation - What’s really good about Gary is the communication. When he says his team will arrive on site to work on a certain date and time, they show up and don’t waste time getting to work. The first stage (stripping down the room and preparing it for racking) was done very well. I kept the same tile floor (Gary’s suggestion) to save money, and it looks great with the new cellar. Everything else was re-done, including framing, spray foam for insulation and very precise square joints, door and window framing by Rosehill’s very skilled tradesman, Chris. It's important to note that Chris was employed by Rosehill and not an independent contractor. The spray foam people were a contractor, but Chris was there to supervise and ensure this task was done as agreed. What was appreciated by us was that every night Chris was tidy up and put away slip covers so that we could continue to use the rest of our basement living area. Also, Chris very carefully covered all nearby furniture and carpeting with plastic to protect it. Even the tile floor in the cellar was covered over to protect it during construction.
3. Problem Solving - When the room was stripped down, we were surprised to find a solid concrete wall on one side of the cellar room that made placing the equipment room just the other side of the wall not possible. Gary quickly arrived to discuss the problem with Chris and myself. They quickly came up with an amended design for the equipment that involved a ceiling mounted cooling unit instead, but with the compressor still outside. This solution turned out to be very good and works well in the cellar.
4. Final Racking Design - Gary and Chris both separately re-measured the finished room for the racking a couple of times. The attention to detail and precision was impressive and appreciated. As a result, Gary came up with a suggestion to tweak the design to improve the look of the cellar in terms of crown molding and overall balance with the window and door frames. At the same time he ensured that the bottle count for the cellar was maximized. I looked over the amended drawing and could quickly see this final amendment to the racking would look much better, so I gave the green light to do it. This started the racking design, which included walnut wood with a bees wax finish — have a look at this in the Rosehill showroom as it’s stunning.
5. Final Racking Installation - Chris returned six weeks later to start installation of the racking. Accompanying Chris was Rosehill's delivery truck that had all the carefully packaged racking material, including beautiful a beautiful stone counter top I had seen in the Rosehill showroom (“antique leather”). After carefully unloading everything, Chris started to work. His experience and professionalism was evident, as he methodically prepared the installation. Its also important to note that Rosehill has its own carpentry shop next to the showroom that does all the racking and cabinet building and finishing — this ensures that what you get is exactly what was agreed in the drawings. The installation by Chris was done in careful sequence, including getting the two sub-contractors (mechanical cooling equipment and glass window/door) were brought in for measuring and installation at the appropriate times. Again, Chris was always on hand when they were there to ensure that what they did met Rosehill’s requirements and commitments to me.
6. Attention to Detail - There were lots of pleasant surprises when the installation was progressing and completed. Here are a few: (1) Walnut door leading to adjacent cold storage was solid and beautifully crafted. It was fitted perfectly and included a special weather strip built into the bottom of the door that comes down automatically when the door is closed. (2) Chris checked with me on location of ceiling lighting installation, window location and size next to glass door to ensure I was happy with it. (3) Glass window its a double thermal pane for better insulation performance. (4) The walnut wood used for the racking, wooden door to cold storage room, crown and floor molding was well chosen of the highest quality. (5) glass door is solidly hinged to floor and self-closes. (6) crown molding on ceiling, door frames and floor molding is very detailed and installed perfectly. (7) the warranty paperwork for the mechanical cooling equipment was completed and submitted to the manufacturer by Rosehill on my behalf. (8) During the cellar work, for a reasonable extra charge, Gary also did a few add on jobs for us, in addition to the cellar, that were much appreciated: A few odd-shaped kitchen shelves were cut to fit an odd shaped pantry; special door to access water meter and water shut-off valve in basement; some drywall work around the cold storage room furnace ductwork.
7. Anything I didn’t like? - Really there was nothing, mainly because Gary was very upfront about everything (including the timetable), so that my expectations were always met or exceeded. Remember, it does take months not weeks to get a cellar installed properly, so don’t expect it to be wrapped up quickly. Also, it’s done in two stages for very good reason: (a) Completion of the cellar room preparation comes first, then the cellar room is re-measured to ensure the racking, cabinets, door/window frames, crown molding, etc. fit perfectly, it has to be re-measured carefully so everything fits like a glove — and it does. (b) After re-measuring the finished room, then the racking, cabinets etc. was all built in Rosehill’s shop, which took about 6 weeks before they returned for racking installation. Every item in the contract was honoured by Rosehill.
8. Finished Product - We now have a beautiful and very functional 650 bottle wine cellar that we enjoy. Our friends and relatives were very impressed and complimentary when they saw it for the first time over the Christmas holidays. It has added to the value of our house and will give us many years of enjoyment. Our thanks to Gary and his excellent team at Rosehill Wine Cellars.
Excellent work - very professional and high quality
The team at Rosehill did a fantastic job with construction of our wine cellar (650 bottles). Our installer Yuric was phenomenal: very courteous, professional and took his time to do a flawless job. We have dealt with one other wine cellar company in the past, and recommend Rosehill without hesitation.
We are extremely pleased with our Rosehill wine cellar.
We are extremely pleased with our Rosehill wine cellar. Gary and his team brought our vision to reality and truly transformed our space. Professional, meticulous, friendly, attentive and efficient are just some of the many ways to explain Rosehill. Chris's precision work really shows. His trustworthiness and care of our home and space while installing was beyond comprehension. I have never dealt with such a professional group of people. The project was finished on time and on budget. We cannot wait to use the cellar for years to come. We highly recommend Gary and Rosehill for any of your wine cellar needs
The workmanship and detail is exceptional.
We always knew when building our home, we wanted a wine cellar with that ‘wow’ factor and Rosehill delivered! Gary was happy to take our idea/wish list with the design into consideration and then he and his team ran with it! The workmanship and detail is exceptional.
We are extremely happy with Rosehill’s work and outcome of our n
We are extremely happy with Rosehill’s work and outcome of our new wine cellar. Gary and his team are a pleasure to deal with and professional at every step along the way. Chris the installer was timely, respectful of our space, and easy to work with. Can’t say enough about how easy a process it was with Rosehill Will Cellars. An A+ in our view.
Best knowledge base in Canada
I have been dealing with Rosehill for years now to supply cooling units and metal racking for my custom designed wine cellars in Calgary and area. They are absolutely the best resource in Canada for everything wine cellar related. Happy to work with them again and again!

The wine racks are installed. I think they look good but I need to buy more wine!

Pek Preservino Professional
I Purchased Pek Preservino Professional based on many expert favourable reviews. It is meant to preserve opened fine old wine in the bottle.
The pourer aerates the bottle, the best way I know to hasten deterioration. With this aeration it stirs up old red wine sediment in the bottle and pours it into the glass. Then you add argon to the well oxygenized bottle. This system does not work and accelerates, rather than prevents wine deterioration. Neither Presevino nor George Riedel (who gave it a glowing recommendation) gave me the courtesy of a reply to these concerns.
These comments do not reflect on Rosehill, who sold me the device.
Sovereign 500 great!
Just a note to let you know my sovereign 500 wine cabinet is a great unit and was surprisingly simple to assemble even alone it was a breeze--thanks!
Hi Gary. I just wanted to reach out and thank you guys, now that my wine cellar is complete. It simply looks amazing! Gary, your design turned out to be perfect for the size of the room, and we couldn't be more pleased. Yuric was very meticulous and we love his work.... and he is a real gentleman too!
Thank you guys again.
Gary and his team at Rosehill exceeded our expectation
The comment is always the same when someone new enters our wine cellar. THIS IS AWESOME! Gary and his team at Rosehill exceeded our expectation in creating a new wine cellar in an existing space that was just storage. The attention to detail and quality is second to none. The installer is a true craftsman and it shows in the details. This cellar was completed on time and on budget. Gary also provided very valuable input based on his experience in the design process. I will strongly recommend Rosehill to anyone considering a wine cellar.
The Perfect Wine Cellar
Thank you Gary to you and your team at Rosehill Wine Cellars for the outstanding workmanship and care you showed to make my wine cellar perfect. Rosehill is precise and detailed and you were very particular to ensure the design met my expectations. Your input on the design and modifications has made the cellar a better and more efficient layout. I am extremely satisfied and it was truly a pleasure dealing with Rosehill on all levels. This quality built wine cellar is definitely an asset to my new home which I will enjoy with family and friends for years to come. Your attention to detail stands out above the rest!

A Beautiful Addition to our Home
We are very pleased with our Rosehill wine cellar. The workmanship and quality of all elements of the cabinetry, both inside and out, have exceeded our expectations. It is a beautiful addition to our home and a pleasure to use. Rosehill’s installer took the utmost care throughout the installation process and was very respectful and careful while in our home. Gary has been a pleasure to work with and very responsive to our needs related to the project. We will definitely recommend Rosehill to our friends and colleagues.
Very Pleased with the VintageKeeper
We assembled the VK500 a year ago & couldn't be happier with the result. It was not practical to convert an existing cold cellar into a proper wine cellar, the VK500 was the perfect solution. The flat pack kit assembled in about 2hrs with the help of a friend & a bottle of wine, but it definitely helped to be handy with tools/instructions.
Caution: The VK500 is very heavy when assembled, just over 300# & when filled to capacity will weigh about 1700#. Not a problem if supported by a concrete basement floor like my unit is, but non basement floors should be checked for adequate strength.
I'm very critical about details, assembly/material quality & wasn't disappointed. The VK500 with its black finish looks superb in my finished basement & is doing a great job storing an incredible amount of wine in a very compact(to me anyway) space.
Thanks Rosehill for convincing me not to renovate my cellar and having this terrific, high capacity, cabinet solution.

The Perfect Little Wine Cellar
We have the perfect little wine cellar at our beach house — thanks to Gary LaRose. The wine cellar was supposed to be considerably larger but got scaled back when the plans were redesigned and most of the basement got eliminated. Nonetheless, Gary continued to work with us in the same professional, skilled and helpful manner. The wine cellar was one of the most pleasant and easy parts of the design and construction. Rosehill has a fantastic showroom and Gary knows his product very well. We had a preliminary design and Gary made several significant improvements. Gary works on the premise of “measure twice and cut once”. He came out to the site several times to ensure the dimensions were 100% accurate and his installation team did excellent work. Gary is meticulous which works well with us as we are very fussy customers. Building a great wine cellar definitely requires specialized expertise and Rosehill provides the caliber of work compatible with high-end home design and construction. We highly recommend Gary and Rosehill and look forward to working with them another time — on a larger wine cellar!
Professional, Courteous, and Reliable
We were thrilled with the design, installation and service and can't wait to fill it up. Through our renovation, we have had to deal with many different service providers and your team stood well above the crowd. Without exception they were professional, courteous, and reliable. Thank you for making this happen for us.
We just wanted to say thank you very much for our new Wine Cellar! Fantastic!! It was exactly what we wanted. Please know our experience working with Yuric, Derek and Jason was very positive and very rewarding. Yes...our wine deserves the very best home.
I am absolutely thrilled with the way it looks and your team's work, including yours.
Everyone really seems to care about the work, from the cooling unit installers to the rack installer. All of them took the time to explain what they were doing and provide helpful suggestions.
It's been great working with Rosehill!
The Wine Cellar Looks Great!
The wine cellar looks great, although we are still a couple of weeks away from getting wine in there. From our perspective we are very pleased with the end result as we got the look and feel we were hoping for. As a repeat customer it was a pleasure going through the process a second time. From design, installation and product quality our expectations were exceeded.
Job well done!
Thanks to Rosehill Wine Cellars for working closely with me in getting the design and execution I was looking for. The cellar looks awesome. I wanted a rustic looking wine cellar with the convenience and efficiency of a new construction. The team at Rosehill designed and sourced materials that were perfectly suited to get the job done and constructed on schedule. Big thanks to Gary and his team.
A Pleasure to Work With
Your company has far exceeded my expectations and everything looks great. The gentleman you sent was a true pleasure to work with and really outdid himself. I appreciate the workmanship, the quality and your follow up. This is the way I like doing business!
Modern Vintage View Wine Cellar
Modern wine room built with Vintage View wine racks. The customer sought a more modern/industrial look. This look was achieved with black wine racks, black glass channel, and a black evaporator faceplate. This wine storage cellar offers an interesting visual look with a mix of presentation racks and wall mounted wine racks. This wine room is cooled with a WhisperKool Ceiling Mount split system.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I had very high expectations for what we wanted in the way of a wine cellar. You blew away those high expectations with a wine cellar that is literally a functioning piece of art. Your work was done right on time and on budget. Your entire staff was very professional and did not cut one corner. They cleaned their work up every day before going home, and my wife and I hardly knew there was a major renovation happening in our basement. No drywall dust or tools all over the place.
You took the design I had in my head and fine-tuned it into something even bolder and more beautiful. I can’t remember having the experience of being so fully taken care of the way your company looked after this project. The wine cellar is definitely a conversation piece with anyone that visits our home. More importantly I spend hours every week in the cellar organizing and planning my wine purchases. I am excited to fill the entire 1000 bottles that it stores.
The glass wall and doors looking in on the dark wood shelves is over the top delicious. When I asked my fellow wine connoisseurs for their recommendation on who to use to build our cellar, all three of them gave Rosehill Wine Cellars as their first pick. Clearly they knew what they were talking about.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Surpassed Our Expectation
As with our initial cellar, every aspect of this second project - from concept, design to completion, surpassed our expectation. All ways within budget and timeline. Thank you for such a great result and we're thrilled with the new cellar space.
Staff was Very Helpful
Sales staff was quick to point out the minor changes in the new unit versus the unit it was replacing.
Couldn't be Happier
I was extremely impressed with the customer service. When I placed my order on-line I ordered the wrong size. I phoned Rosehill Wine Cellars the next day, and in less than a minute the lady that answered my call tracked down my order and changed it to the correct size. She assured me that there was no problem with changing my order, and that it would still arrive by the end of November. It was delivered to my door 6 days later well packaged and in perfect condition. I couldn't be happier and will recommend Rosehill to my friends.
Very pleased with the speedy delivery and the product. I will be recommending your product to others.
Great products. Good Prices. Delivery was super-fast. Consistent follow up at key stages in the process. Very professional. Nobody's time is wasted. Overall excellent value proposition. Will highly recommend to others.
Overall a good and positive experience ordering through your website! Product was delivered on time and works fine.
I was happy to have the opportunity to order on-line, as I am some distance from any retail outlet that carries your products.
Rosehill people are and always have been good to deal with...I'm happy!
Happy with Responsiveness
We were so happy with the responsiveness of your team. We needed the racks quickly for a project and they were couriered to us next day. We were shocked at how quickly you managed to process things on our behalf.
Realize your Wine Dreams
You were very terrific during this lengthy process and you never gave up. I appreciated that. I am glad to have worked with you on projects at this house and my previous home. Your company provides a valuable service to the wine aficionados of our city. Thank goodness there are people out there like you to allow people to realize their wine dreams. I wish you much continued success.
I would highly recommend Rosehill. Gary took some initial drawings and enhanced them significantly. His suggestions and insight vastly improved the original concept. Derek kept me up to speed on timing on how long the installation would take place. Yuric the installer was superb. His attention to detail, attitude, cleanliness and professionalism is second to none. The end result is I got the exact wine cellar I was looking for on time, on budget with no surprises.
wonderful wine racks
We loved the wine racks and made them very custom by adding the partition walls with the bays in between. Great company to work with.
Vintage View in Utah
Lyon project in Utah of their newly-completed Vintage View installation. A little different than most because the FCFs had to be adapted to the ceiling slope. Customer also elected to cut off the standard base plates and replace them with hidden ones so that they more closely resembled the angled base plates at the ceiling.
Great Result !!!!!
All of us at Prestige Homes would like to thank you for all your help and support in putting together this unique wine display.
You guys have GREAT customer service and very knowledgeable staff.

A second cellar with Rosehill
Due to a recent move I was faced with building another wine cellar. Given the positive experience I had with Rosehill while building my first cellar, I did not hesitate to call Gary and the team once again and I was not disappointed. His design team did a great job developing a detailed plan for a space with unique dimensions and design requirements. The installation was first rate. I enjoyed having Jason in my home to perform the installation. His workmanship was of the highest quality, within the estimated time frame, and was praised by the contractor who was supervising my house renovation project. I am very proud of the result and plan to enjoy it for many years to come. I would highly recommend Rosehill for any cellaring needs.
I will only call Rosehill
“I recently had a wine cellar built off my kitchen by Rosehill Wine Cellars. The final product was better than I could have ever imagined.
Gary's design met my requirements exactly and he wouldn't settle unless I was completely satisfied with the final design and ultimately a cellar that we were both proud of. I have to also give special thanks to Jason who built the cellar. His professionalism, workmanship, and attention to detail are second to none. If I ever had another cellar built, I will only call Rosehill.”
An Absolute Pleasure
I cannot be any more pleased with the final product of my custom built wine cellar. Gary's understanding of construction and his experience in wine cellar design is top notch and served as a true asset. Jason the installer was an absolute pleasure to work with. His attention to detail and craftsmanship are beyond impressive. I most appreciated how trustworthy Jason is and how he kept the work area and my home as clean as possible. The wine cellar meets all my expectations and more.
Thank you Gary and team.
The cellar is amazing
We could not be happier...the cellar is amazing, cooling unit is quiet and is maintaining the cellar around 58 degrees. Guests have commented on the unbelievable craftsmanship and attention to detail. I have not hesitated to provide your name to them and how wonderful the experience was dealing with you, Derek, Jason and Rosehill. Thank you very much.
Bill Demers, Puslinch
Great experience with Rosehill Wine Cellars
This is my first time doing business with RWC and I do not regret it. Peter was such a great help all along the transaction. All my emails and questions were answered in the shortest delays. Peter's support before and after my purchase was outstanding. Should you look for good advises and a pleasant purchasing experience of devices related to wine I strongly recommend Rosehill Wine Cellars. Thanks Peter!
I dealt with Sheila from Rosehill Wine Cellars. She was extremely helpful in aiding with the design and purchase of the 7' classic racking & cooling unit. I am extremely satisfied with the end result. Our guests always compliment us on it.
Extremely well designed and constructed
Peter and the Rosehill staff was very helpful in helping us conceptualize our wine cellar. The Sapele wine racks are extremely well designed and constructed. Thanks for all your help through the entire process.
Dr. Nimu Ganguli, M.D FRCPC
Great attention to detail and professional service
Thank you to Rosehill Wine Cellars for being our partner in building our treasured wine cellar! Your attention to detail and professional service was only surpassed by the personal and collaborative effort put forth by you to understand our tastes. From the very outset, you guided our thoughts and helped us focus on creating something that will truly be a showpiece in our home. Your design experience and understanding of how to make the wine cellar compliment our space was most impressive!
Congratulations on all your success!
Expert, Good Value, High Integrity
We love our wine cellar and highly recommend Gary's services to all who expect only the best in design, workmanship and after sales service.
Top Qualities: Expert, Good Value, High Integrity
World-class design sense
Gary, I just wanted to thank you very much for the tremendous job that you and your team did in connection with our new wine cellar at our home on Highland Gardens. Your design sense is world-class, the building materials you recommended were ideal and your construction team did a brilliant job executing against the plan. The final product is something we are really proud of, and we will enjoy it for decades. If I can ever recommend you and your team or vouch for you, please do not hesitate to ask.
All the best and again, thank you!
Vision becomes reality
I would like to thank Gary and the team at Rosehill Wine Cellars for all their help and input with regard to the construction of a wine cellar as part of my basement renovation. I was unsure about the layout of the cellar as the project got underway, but after a visit from Gary, he was able to make my vision become reality with a number of helpful suggestions. The CAD drawings were particularly helpful in terms of getting a "feel" for the look and flow of the layout. The installation was very smooth, with the installers taking the time to ensure that the Premier Cru racks and wood trim fit my space perfectly in order to give it that custom look (they spent an extra day onsite to work on the door frame in order to make sure that it was done to the best standards). They were also extremely courteous and cleaned up when they were finished each evening. The wood materials are of excellent quality, and the custom door, door frame and hardware have helped to make the cellar a focal point of the basement. Bottom line is that I am looking forward to enjoying the cellar - and the contents - for years to come
The cellar looks absolutely amazing
The cellar looks absolutely amazing. What a transformation of the space. I was most impressed with the level of detail and craftsmanship. I am so glad I chose Rosehill for my cellar. What a great experience I’ve had. After months of renovations at my new office dealing with contractor issues and quality of workmanship it was so refreshing to work with a professional company like yours. I will recommend Rosehill to everyone.
I am thrilled with the whole process & finished product
Gary and his team designed and built a gorgeous walnut racking display for our new wine tasting and event room. The finished product is absolutely perfect for the space and the walnut looks amazing. Jeff the installer was really accommodating and his workmanship was exceptional. I am thrilled with the whole process and finished product and I’m sure it will be well appreciated for many years. Thanks a ton to Rosehill!
So enamored with the cellar!
The cellar looks great. Jeffery did an amazing job. Guy was really happy with his attention to the details and making sure the cellar was as efficient with the space as possible. I did not think I would get Guy to the New Years Eve Party that night as he was so enamored with it! He spent a happy few days getting it organized and labeling all his wine.
Thanks again for fitting this job in and thanks to Jeffery for his work.
Well beyond what we expected
We were extremely pleased with the service of Rosehill Wine Cellars. Our goal was to have the wine cellar to be the focal point in our dining room and one that complimented the design of our home. We could not find any ideas that we liked anywhere and together with Gary we developed a unique concept. He created and built a wine cellar that was well beyond what we expected. It is stunning! We highly recommend Gary and the team at Rosehill.
Suits our needs beautifully
We love the temperature and humidity controlled cellar knowing that our
wine isn't subject to fluctuating conditions, as in the past.
As an older couple, we needed a smaller cellar and opted not to go
custom. The premier cru/ village kits suit our needs beautifully and
offer lots of choice.The detailing is superb and the wine cellar look is
now so clean and contemporary that we both don't mind running downstairs
to select the evening's wine.
I wasn't certain about layout, though I knew what types of wines I
wanted to collect. I e-mailed Peter with dimensions and pictures and a
cellar profile. He put together a great design and recommended some rack
types that he felt I'd use in the future, even though I hadn't specified
them in my profile.
My husband uses the tiny slots to store his Corona!
Touch of class
Just wanted to give you an update on our finished wine room, the wine racks look great and added a real touch of class, thanks again for your help.
Outstanding Design & Team
We had a vision; Rosehill Wine Cellars created it and exceeded our expectations. We enjoy our wine unit even more than we thought possible. Thank you to Gary and his outstanding design and team.
Perfect Addition to our Basement Development
Completely satisfied with the ease of installation and great finished look of the redwood modular product. Final additions of stemware racking and KoolR unit with enhance our custom cellar.
A very positive experience with delivery
I wanted to let you know we took delivery of the Vintage Keeper today, and had a very positive experience. Nolan was very friendly and arrived directly at our scheduled time. He put the VK together very quickly (clearly has the practice) and left no mess. Perhaps this should be normal, but it so often isn't! Can you please pass along my thanks and appreciation as appropriate.
Stunning wine cabinets and racking displays!
Our walnut wine cabinet your company built and installed is not only gorgeous but it is absolutely amazing! It has completely changed the look of my restaurant FIAMMA and I appreciate all your hard work. You can certainly acknowledge and appreciate when something has been custom built and I love it. Your team is truly professional and a pleasure to be around.
I will refer you to anyone I know who requires a custom built wine beauty because that is the product your company delivers- stunning wine cabinets and racking displays.
Once again, THANK YOU!
Modular Racks In Toronto
We purchased modular racks from you last year for our cellar. They worked amazingly. The stone entrance was an after thought. And we are so happy that we
came up with that idea. That room is now where we start our weekends.

Sheila, here is a higher resolution image of my completed cellar using the Redrack modular wine rack kits. I'm extremely happy with how it turned out. Thanks again for all your help.
** customer has allowed for extra support brackets and bracing for the area above the plumbing shut off **
Thank you for restoring my confidence that there are retailers still out there who care about customer satisfaction. You went above and beyond to make the experience of buying our first wine cellar a very pleasant one and we sincerely appreciate that. We received our wine cellar two days ago and are very pleased with it. We will definitely recommend you and Rosehill to anyone we know who is in the market for a wine cellar.
It was a Breeze to put together!
The Premier Cru Wine Racking Kit was a breeze to put together. I want to thank you for all your help with my cellar. I could not have done it without you.
Everything Worked out Great
Everything worked out great with the Premier Cru Kit Wine Racks. Thanks again for your help Peter. Nice to deal with a company that reacted so quickly.
It Went Together Beautifully
I just wanted to take this opportunity to say that the Premier Cru Wine Racking System was put together without a single hitch. It went together beautifully. The carpenter who put it together said he has never seen something arrive so organized and so well cut and fit.
We Could Not Be Happier
We could not be happier…Although the door was delayed, it was worth the wait! The craftsmanship and attention to detail of your installers Darryl and Yuric was outstanding.
You can be assured we will highly recommend you to others.
Rosehill Goes to Vancouver Island
Rosehill has a presence in the multi-million $ restoration to this lovely early 20th century estate on Vancouver Island, just outside of Victoria on Saanich Inlet.
Abstract Developments, with whom we have done a number of wine cellars in customary new home builds, had an irregularly-shaped room, 2-ft thick original stone walls. There were also very low ceiling to deal with in this restoration. We eventually agreed on an ONAM CW30W wine cellar cooling unit and a number of 6.1 Classic kit wooden wine racks.
This 2010 restoration property was finally on the market with an asking of $8.9M.
It Is Exactly What I Was Hoping For
This is the first time I was able to see the wine cellar completed. It looks great! It is exactly what I was hoping for. The racking worked out very well and the installation was just right.
I plan on adding a few finishing touches, such as a table and appropriate light fixture, but that will all come in time as will the bottles to fill the cellar. Thank you.
The Customer was Truly Impressed!
Just wanted to send you a few pics of the wine cellar we created using your racking for our Calgary client.
We added our own base, countertops and moulding. The customer was truly impressed! The painter not so much..lol!
Install Went Smoothly
Thanks for all your help on this job - the customer (a northern California winery) loved the result and the install went smoothly.
I hope to work with you again.
Everything Looks Great
One thing that may be of interest--I put a flat ceiling on top of the racks-- in back of the trim--I just used 1/2 inch plywood and screwed it down to provide accessibility, if necessary--this gave the racks a much more finished look because the room ceiling is about 18 inches higher. The rack structure obscures the fact that I used plywood--unless it is pointed out. I put a strip of "led lights" around the total room--in back of the top front trim and under the plywood ceiling--this gives a very nice affect.
A Beautiful Cellar
I wanted to thank you for the work you did making our wine cellar look as good as it does, and it really is a beautiful cellar.
I am very pleased with the work your guys did here and the fact that you didn't stop until everything was perfect. It is a terrific addition to our house and I am extremely happy we chose to work with Rosehill Wine Cellars.
Thanks very much.
Village Kit racking installation:
I am very pleased to report that everything I picked up on Saturday has now been full installed by our young carpenter. He took the plans and installation instructions on Monday, set everything up yesterday for my review, and installed and completed everything today.
I know that I am very pleased with the outcome, and am looking forward this weekend to filling the cellar with our collection of wine - there will be lots of dust to remove, but we are very pleased with the choice you recommended! The shelves are sturdy and finely done - a true pleasure to use, and a new gem within our home!
Thank you so much for your assistance in getting this project planned, and executed!!
The company was VERY meticulous in the delivery & setup (pre-measuring hallway/doorway clearance, protecting floors etc).
Exceptional Service and Product
Thank you Peter for your wonderful design and advice in building our wine cellar. The redwood wine racks were easy to assemble and the wood quality was excellent. While your product is suited for the do-it-yourselfer, of which I am not, (I chose) to have it professionally done. Thankfully, Carmine an exceptionally skilled carpenter and friend did an amazing job for a truly professional result.
Isabella and John - Ancaster, Ontario
"Thank you for the wonderful job on the wine cellar. Jason is an incredible craftsman but we knew that from having worked with him before! We love the look of the new cellar even though we have not had the chance to load it yet. I expect this will be our last cellar and its been a joy working with you on two occasions."
I want to thank you and the staff involved for such a wonderful experience and a superior product. I know I've already said this before but the construction was flawless
and the wood was a dream to work with. Please give my thanks to the guys in the trenches building these racks. Incredible work! I can't wait to show it off and promote your fantastic product.
I ordered 7 segments of the 7 foot mahogany racks from you with trepidation due to the "assembly required". It was quite easy and the final result is beautiful and quite functional. Thanks for all your help and such a great product!
"Hello everyone at Rosehill Wine Cellars, I am sending you this email to let everyone know how satisfied I am with my newly acquired wine cellar from Rosehill. The staff was more than excellent with free of charge rack design. All I miss now are the bottles."
Experience has been excellent
"You guys have been great in assistance. My experience with Rosehill Wine Cellars has been excellent. I appreciate your support and I definitely will recommend your company to others. Best Regards and Happy New Year!"
You have a very satisfied customer
"To Sue and all the others at Rosehill that helped me -
A while back (maybe 4 weeks ago), I ordered several of your redwood wine racks. Prior to that I had been working with some of you (Sue in particular) in coming up with a good design. I don't have much of a cellar; it is a rather small room, and Sue helped me modify my own plan to optimize the storage while maintaining good appeal. First, I could not believe how fast it arrived... within days of placing the order. It allowed me to get started a weekend sooner than I had planned. I could not be more pleased with the results. Your racks went together nicely, especially with the instructions provided. I was able to complete the entire cellar in the weekend (2 days). Your advice was very good; the wine cellar came out looking like it was totally custom built. Thanks for all your help and your incredibly fast response. I am very proud of the results; now comes the fun part of stocking the cellar."
"You have a very satisfied customer."
I was truly amazed
I ordered a Koolspace 900 on Monday July 15. The next day it arrived.
I was truly amazed because I didn't expect it for a week. Installed the unit in my wine cellar that I built into a root cellar. I partitioned the root cellar so that about 600 cubic feet (a little less than half) is wine cellar. The wine cellar is fully insulated and the partition wall is a 2x6 stud wall. Our temperatures have lately often been over 100 F, so the cellar was getting close to 75 F when I ordered the unit. After installation it took a couple days to reduce the temperature to 57 and it is now holding there just fine. I'm very pleased with the Koolspace 900 and am very happy to finally have a temperature controlled wine cellar."
You and DHL came though
"Hi, I received my Odyssey 500 today and everything was perfect with it! I bought an Odyssey 220 a couple of years ago from someone else, and the shippers (not DHL) managed to break 5 of the 8 boxes shipped in 3 different shipments! You can probably imagine my hesitancy to try this again, but you and DHL came though with A-1 service. I would also like to compliment you on your telephone help and advice, and for your understanding. I could not imagine a more smooth transaction, a rarity in today's world. Thanks so much. And I'll certainly tell all my friends about your store. (Now that I can store more wine, I'm sure to acquire more friends!!) Thank you, thank you,
Great customer service
"Dear Rosehill Wine Cellars,
Last Thursday afternoon, I found your web page and called your toll-free number to place an order. The woman I reached was extremely helpful, and assured me that the wine racks I ordered would be delivered before my husband's birthday this coming Thursday. Lo and behold, DHL arrived at my house the next morning at 9:30 am to deliver the boxes! Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised.
Thanks for your great customer service, and the incredibly fast shipping. I can't wait to surprise my husband and set up the cellar racks. Should his wine collection increase (which is probably inevitable) and outgrow his rack storage, you will certainly be hearing from me again."
Sheila was more than patient
"My name is James M. Stoffel and I recently completed the construction of my own personal wine cellar in my home. I am very pleased with how it turned out and look forward to years of enjoyment and the security of knowing my investment will be protected.
I wanted to take a minute to recognize an employee of Rosehill Wine Cellars Inc. Her name is Sheila Parsons.
While I consider myself handy and able to master most construction/home improvement efforts, I had never had any experience in this particular area. As you are probably aware, there are a number of companies that are competitors of Rosehill Wine Cellars. Sheila was the person who made the difference for me as I began to finalize my plans for my cellar and select a company to purchase materials from. She was extremely helpful in helping me to understand the process and the requirements in successfully constructing an environment that would be efficient and would not break the budget I had set for myself.
Sheila was more than patient with me as I contacted her on numerous occasions throughout the build process. She certainly went above and beyond what would normally be expected. It's been particularly gratifying knowing that the same support has continued after the sale was complete. I am truly appreciative of her continued support just wanted to let you know that her Customer Service is outstanding. Thanks Sheila for everything!"
"I wanted to share with you, a photo of my modular wine rack that I purchased from RoseHill and for which you were so helpful in getting my order taken care of. Also, if you would, please share this with Sheila, who was very helpful in designing it. As you can see, I have a ways to go to fill it but I'm very pleased with the way it came out. Thanks again and I'll be back when I'm ready to expand."
I will certainly recommend you
"Thank you again for all your help and I will certainly not hesitate to recommend you. Feel free to use me as a reference if you ever have the need."
It was a Breeze!
Hello, I just wanted to say thanks for the great service and expedition of my order. The Breezaire unit arrived two days before my friend from out of town to help and fully two weeks before the best estimate from the factory. With my friend's help and your helpful customer service, we were able to repair and replace a 7 year old cabinet model with a brand new unit with electronic sensors. It was a "Breeze". Thanks again.
Thank you both
"Sheila, I would like to thank both you and Carol....If only all our vendors were so responsive and pleasant to deal with."
"Thank you! We are really pleased with the results of all of our hard work. We had a nice palette to work with the wine cellar, the stone work, clearing the water fall, etc.
We are thrilled with our wine cellar from Rosehill Wine Cellars and would not hesitate to order for another home. Thank you again for everything you did to help make our home a true dream. And you can quote me!"
I appreciate all your help
"Everything went well - it fit through all the doors and openings it needed to, and it is now running well.
I appreciate all your help throughout this, and admire the level of service you have been providing."
Thanks for all your help
"Thanks for all your help with my cellar project. Everything arrived as planned, no shipping problems at all. I have attached a few pictures of the finished project for your enjoyment.
Thanks again for all your help!"
Very happy and satisfied
"Thanks so much for your help in the design and ordering of racks for our cellar.
I thought you might enjoy a few pictures.
You may notice I did a little custom work - not much really.
I was able to use the extra 'center ladders' in place of the 'end ladders' on the corner racks and the tasting table. This made it fit with no modifications and gave an unbroken look to the racking.
I am a very happy and satisfied customer!"
Racking fit like a glove
"I have attached some photos of the wine cellar that you helped design. The racking fit like a glove. Thanks for everything."
Product is phenomenal
"I purchased my cellar from Rosehill about a year and half ago, while we were building our home. I worked with Sue – thank you Sue! Her design recommendations made all the difference. The product is phenomenal. Here is a picture of the finished cellar."
Express my thanks to Carol
I would like to express to you my thanks to Carol for the important support you provided me during the process of designing and deciding on the racks. Your suggestions and guidance were very important, and I was able to see issues that I did not know before and resolve them to my full satisfaction. Also, the way you communicate to a client is extremely engaging and you are, undoubtedly, an important asset for your company.
It is a pleasure to do business with you.
I want to thank Peter
"I want to thank Peter for all your help and advice; it was valuable in getting my cellar put together. I have included a few pictures of the finished product and my wife, friends and I are looking forward to all the pleasure it will bring us over the years. Cheers and much thanks."
Thanks Rosehill Wine Cellars
"My newly built home office was big enough for me to incorporate a small working wine cellar into it. I thought of everything I wanted in order to improve quality and up production (>50 cases) - this is what I came up with. The cellar is climate controlled, can hold 592 bottles of wine, 6 carboys, 4 - thirty gallon wine barrels, files/records and most winemaking equipment. Additionally, it's a great humidor where I presently store about 400 cigars.
I looked at a lot of components and your racking system fit in perfect with my plans and helped me to maximize space. The only modification I made was to the cardboard box racks to accommodate carboys and cigar boxes.
Thanks Rosehill Wine Cellars for your assistance throughout this process."
I'm very happy
We combined the redwood racks with some custom steel racking and detailing. I was able to achieve the more modern feel I wanted for the house and I'm very happy with it. As you can see, I have room to grow so I'll let you know when I need more material...
"Thanks again for all your help in design and support while I was fumbling through the construction."
Another happy customer
"Another happy cellar customer."
Everything is excellent
"Here are a couple of pictures of my under-stairs, super-insulated, cedar-lined wine cellar using Rosehill racks. The system assembled nicely, using a brad nailer, and the finished product is fabulous! Everything from your customer service, through the finished product is excellent."
"Nice company to deal with, that reacted so quickly!"
Very happy with the result
"I'm very happy with the result. Costly project given it's small size, but it went very smoothly and the cellar looks great. You have a slick operation (Slick in a good way - i.e. promotion, good customer service and good results!). Amethyst is a nice touch. First time a contractor ever called me a few days ahead of time to confirm he would be starting on the projected start date."
"Very pleased overall and would recommend Rosehill to anyone contemplating a wine cellar!"
Exceed our expectations
"After receiving your quote with numerous references from previous customers, our expectations were heightened. To our amazement you managed to exceed our expectations."
Job well done
"Easy to deal with. Clear plan, clear proposal, well executed in a timely fashion. Job well done!"
"Our opinion is one of excellence throughout. From our first meeting and during the project, everyone performed in an excellent manner. It is very rare to experience such swift, efficient professionalism in this day and age. We are delighted with the results and impressed by our very first wine cellar. We tip our wine glasses to you!"
Many many thanks
"I can't tell you how pleased I am. Many, many thanks for such good work. This was, without doubt, been the best renovation experience of my life."
Highest order of professionalism
"As a lifelong beer drinker, my recently acquired enthusiasm for wine has been immeasurably boosted by the excellent work done by Rosehill. From concept to completion and all the minor details in-between, Rosehill's work has been of the highest order of professionalism. We enthusiastically recommend Gary LaRose and Rosehill's crew, notwithstanding the inordinate amount of time we are now spending puttering around the cellar when other more pressing duties call."
Meet our needs
“We researched three firms and talked to staff, and found Rosehill to meet our needs. Seeing the project go from paper to actually seeing it completed exceeded our expectations. They ask you and take time to consider your needs. The quality of product and installation are excellent.”
"We would like to thank Rosehill for building a stunning cellar. Gary and his staff not only met, but exceeded our expectations. We would recommend Rosehill to anyone considering building a "home" for their collection."
"Excellent! Excellent, and would recommend Rosehill to anyone. (And have). First class guys!"
"Wonderful job by people who took great pride in what they were doing. Rosehill is the only company you need to call if you are looking for a wine cabinet or wine cellar!"
Better than expectations
"My most memorable moment of the project, was when my wife and Gary were filmed for TV discussing the cellar. This is better than our expectations!"
"Great Design and Workmanship! They were neat and first rate. The project was completed on time and within budget. A great pleasure to work with."
"Great Design and Workmanship! They were neat and first rate. The project was completed on time and within budget. A great pleasure to work with."
"Only one regret; that I did not let Rosehill do the entire project. Next time I would get the room construction and the racks installed by Rosehill. Your installer Yuric is a craftsman who cares about his work and is an absolute pleasure. I am very proud to have him work on my wine cellar."
"Jason from Rosehill is a visionary who can take the clients ideas and requirements, and further enhance them based on his experience and knowledge of wine cellar construction and esthetics. Rosehill does not use sub-contractors, which was very important to me and made the process effortless. This also allowed for some flexibility as the project moved forward without compromising the project schedule, as you are only dealing with 1 or 2 qualified individuals for construction or admin issues. We are extremely satisfied with the end result and welcome the use of our names as references."
"This is our second project with Rosehill and each has been a wonderful experience (if construction can be. With minimum inconvenience, superb workmanship and a great product. Way to go!"
"Excellent – impressed with the details. (A door hinge placement was changed without me having to mention anything). The cleanest and neatest job ever and the amethyst gift was very thoughtful!"
"Despite keeping track of the progress day to day, opening the door to the wine cellar on completion was a breathtaking experience. It all came together and exceeded our expectations. It is a beautiful room. You guys were great to work with and delivered an outstanding wine cellar. Gary was an impressive designer and a great sounding board for our initial ideas."
Sincerely thank you
"Gary, I would like to sincerely thank you for the incredible wine cellar you built in my basement. I could not have asked for anything more. I appreciate all the helpful advice you provided both before and during the construction of the cellar. Clearly, you have been doing this a long time and all your advice paid off. During the construction, Sebastian was extremely professional, meticulous, and a pleasure to have around. His attention to detail was amazing and he built the cellar as if it was his own. Once again, thanks for everything Gary."
"After comparative shopping - I was most impressed with Rosehill's service, advice and design. Rosehill was a delight to work with, on time, on budget - lovely people and nothing more I could want!"
"We had a unique need for the space and identified Rosehill as best suited to satisfy it. The staff gave us great confidence that customer satisfaction is a top priority. Jason was fabulous, specifically he was pleasant, trustworthy, tidy and has great attention to detail. A first class experience throughout and worth the money."
"Thank you for dealing with me through this process. I know it was probably a more lengthy process than most, but I have really appreciated your most professional advice and guidance creating the cellar space and the most beautiful design you created for the racking. We are thrilled!
Jason is a true craftsman and his eye for detail is impeccable. We will most certainly be spreading the good word of Rosehill Cellars. We have been really impressed from beginning to end and could not be more pleased with the end result."
Another happy customer
Another happy Rosehill Wine Cellars customer
"Many thanks for the work towards the creation of the wine cellar - in the words of the lucky group who have seen it and helped to christen it - "totally awesome!"
"The wonderful redwood racking and artistically designed glass make for a wine cellar that we shall always enjoy. The materials used were all top quality and your carpenter, mason and painter were all very professional and left the premises clean at the end of each day. Thank you for building us a beautiful wine cellar."
Final results speak for themselves
"The final results speak for themselves and the cellar looks absolutely spectacular – we are thrilled with the results. The job was easily completed on time and we truly appreciate your personal attention to some of the smaller finishing touches. "
"Excellent quality of work provided. The staff were all extremely pleasant to work with."
"The renovation experience was excellent, virtually stress-free. The staff were easy to be with, friendly, able and offered explanations when necessary."
Attention to detail
"It was Evan and his attention to detail that led me to contact Rosehill for my basement, steam shower and cellar renovation. Both Evan and Gord were tremendous. It was a pleasure having them work in our home. I learned a lot during the renovation and was not burdened with a million decisions thanks to Gary. Rosehill has a great team from start to finish."
Proud of our cellar
"We are very proud of our cellar. It was evident that you had a great passion for wine as well as making sure it had the right home. Workmanship was impeccable with a lot of thought spent on making sure the detail and finishing match the look I was after. The construction was completed in a timely manner and the overall experience was very positive."
"This project was a joint effort - you filled in the mistakes we made and created a beautiful cellar that meets our needs. I am very pleased with the process and the results."
"Excellent opinion of renovation, experience, and quality of work provided. There is an incredible difference in the overall appearance of the cellar when trim, moulding, light & floor were added."
"Your professionalism and the workmanship of you and your team was unparalleled. The workmanship was great and the project was completed on time and on budget. We are extremely pleased with the end result and have received rave reviews from family and friends."
Friendly and Professional
"Although my wine cellar was a very small job compared to most, it has given me great pleasure. Your craftsman, Evan, was friendly & professional. Excellent renovation experience."
I can and do recommend you!
"Without exception, the comments of my 'nosey' friends have been superlative. The single mistake I made was not having my showpiece room on the main floor beside the dining room. I am very happy with the final results. I can and do recommend you to anyone interested in a) customized wine cellars b) a professional, courteous and neat workforce c) construction people open to ideas as the job progresses."
Workmanship was first rate
"The workmanship was first-rate, neat, and prompt. Top that off with your highly competitive fee for services, and it has become a real pleasure recommending your company to any friend or customer who asks me for a cellar referral. You have become one of my "classics"."
Professional and Pleasant
"Thank you for being so professional and pleasant to work with. You were always cheerful, punctual and helpful. Your sense of design and ours were quite close, with the added benefit of you knowing what actually works and what doesn't. We hope to see you often in the near future, whether working on another project or simply enjoying a nice glass of wine with you and yours."
"Gary, It is in a word, breathtaking! Thanks to you and Jason on the design and the final fit and finish. The latter two items are flawless. I especially appreciate the attention of your firm to the details. It has set the standard in refinement in the rest of the basement reno."
