The developer has appointed wine cellar design experts and architects to help convert part of the basement into a high class cellar and wine tasting room, for resident use only.
Salta Properties director – developments Eugene Cester said the cellar would be accessed via a large vaulted door opening to a luxury wine tasting room equipped with wide board chocolate timber floors, wool rugs, timber ceiling, arm chairs and a flatscreen TV which comes down from the ceiling.
The room will be surrounded by floor to ceiling walls of glass behind which are temperature and humidity controlled wine storage, which residents are able to access. The storage spaces will be illuminated with LED lighting, allowing residents to change the cellar’s backdrop depending on mood.
Residents can book the room for wine tasting with the building’s concierge.
The $350 million redevelopment will accommodate Melbourne’s most expensive penthouse – already snapped up by Salta managing director Sam Tarascio. The building also includes a 22-seat cinema, and 24-hour concierge.
