Wine Cellar

zone 5 wine rackWhat does a ten-year-old bottle of barolo have in common with QuadCore Servers? Think climate.

When we were designing our new office space, we realized that the ideal environment for our server hardware matched up almost exactly with the storage requirements for red wine. And so a hybrid was born. The wine cellar backs up to our server room and shares its cooling system. So the same cold air that keeps our servers humming 24/7 also keeps our wine collection at optimal drinking temperature.

The cellar was built by the designers and artisans right here at Zone 5, who are just as comfortable with hardwoods as they are with pixels and poster board.

And we’re sure it’s entirely a coincidence, but we have noticed a recent increase in the number of clients requesting an on-site meeting at 4 pm on Fridays.
