Wine Storage Specialist!

Our History and Expertise:

Doug M Smith has been a world renowned designer of custom wine cellars and wine storage for over 25 years.  He was a Founder and Chief Design Architect for the original Apex Wine Cellars Company from 1991 to 2010 before it was acquired by another firm. During his time at Apex, Doug successfully managed the design and installation of over 20,000 wine cellars in all parts of the world.  Clients from Europe, Asia, Middle East, Dubai, South America, and all 50 US States have hired him as the chief wine cellar design consultant for their private home, restaurant and country club projects. Doug M Smith has deep roots in the wine cellar industry and is an expert at wine cellar designs and taking a project from initial concepts to beautiful finished wine storage spaces. No matter what the room size or budget, Doug’s creative instincts and natural abilities to uniquely store wine collections always exceed his client’s highest expectations.  

Doug has spent the several years working for WhisperKool Corp as their Director of Product Development.  This experience has gained him valuable expertise on climate control systems and wine storage temperature for wine cellars. Thus, making Doug’s wine cellar design and wine storage background even more unique within the wine industry. 

After turning down countless opportunities to consult on wine cellar and wine storage projects around the world, Doug decided to get back to his roots by starting Rhino Wine Cellars and Cooling Systems. This time with a grander vision then ever before, Rhino is able to offer wood and metal racks, wine cellar doors, cooling systems, wine cellar accessories and more. Doug and his partners are excited to share this wine cellar design expertise & their creative concepts with their clients. With our knowledge of building a cellar, Rhino Wine Cellars and Cooling Systems specializes in wine racks and custom wine cellars, large and small. Our goal is to create unique and amazing wine cellars that meet and exceed our clients expectations.
