I contracted Cru to build a custom-designed conditioned wine cabinet for our home. They were very professional from start to finish. John consulted with me to understand my needs and wishes for wine storage and discussed multiple options, helping me find a solution that fit very well within our desires and budget. Every detail was custom designed. We just finished installation and they did a very nice job. I expected quality construction and I can say that the workmanship and attention to detail surpassed my expectations. They made sure I was 100% satisfied with the end product. They also quoted the job 'all-in' so there were no surprises. Bottom line: I found them to be professional and easy to work with and am very happy with the quality of the product.
The cellar is gorgeous! Love it! Beautiful finishes and racking. Door and windows are solid and look fantastic. Now we just have to fill it up!!

We worked with John Lutz at Grandeur Cellars / Cru Wine Furnishings about four years ago and are thoroughly delighted with the results. John came to our house and evaluated the space we had for a wine cellar, our desired bottle capacity, and design preferences. From that he came up with some design drawings. We reviewed them together, and came up with what we all thought was a fantastic design. One of the features we wanted was sideways display of wine bottles in front, but also easy access to the storage behind. John found just the right design and hardware to create sliding racks that run just inside two of the three doors, giving us the look and easy access we wanted. Our cellar has been running great for four years, and we could not be happier with it.
We had a number of curve balls thrown at this job including the wine room flooding right after the wine racks went in. It screwed up our schedule and prolonged the job, but the Grandeur folks were there right away and able to remove the racks and get them to an environment in our house where we could properly dry and rescue them. The team rolled with the punches and efficiently completed the job to everyone's satisfaction. There was a little touch up required when finished and they took care of all our minor issues. They are in high demand and occasionally get spread a little thin, especially when they have to co-ordinate with insulation and the HVAC companies that are also jammed up. But as long as you can live with a few scheduling bumps along the way, you will be very pleased with the final product as we have been.
We hired Grandeur Cellars/Cru Wine Furnishings when we purchased our home. We had them do a variety of projects that required precise customization, beautiful design and attention to detail. This team was very professional and a delight to work with. The attention to quality of workmanship, eagerness to work with us on design and reliability was beyond compare to any company we worked with during that time. We had multiple projects going at the same time as you might when you first move into a home, but this company goes above & beyond. Very professional, cleaned up after each day, employees were courteous. They completed beautiful climate controlled woodwork in a wine room, gorgeous high end woodwork in a custom designed movie theater and a custom built wall bed in a spare bedroom. Overall, we would highly recommend John Lutz and this company for your project. We never get tired of looking at the beauty that these projects brought to our home.
Installed and loaded to the brim! We absolutely love it. Thanks so much for all your help and personal attention. Great experience overall.
John Lutz, owner of Grandeur Cellars, built a wine cellar for me just to the specifications that I desired. The project was completed in October 2014, and the cellar has been performing excellent providing the storage that I wanted for my wine. The cellar is also a beautiful piece of furniture!! Recently, I had a problem with the glass in one of the cellar doors, and John sent one of his best installers (100 miles) to fix the problem. Not only did the installer fix the problem, but he enhanced the glass retention on the doors so well that I am sure that it will definitely improve the performance of the overall cellar. I am completely satisfied with the completed project and the service that I have received from Grandeur Cellars, and I highly recommend them to build you a cellar or any type of cabinetry.
I worked directly with John Lutz who was very helpful throughout the entire design process. John provided us with an estimate and detailed drawings for a custom wine cabinet for a Senior Living facility. They were very accommodating; helping us achieve our vision of a dual sided cabinet when others could not. John has also been very thorough in following up with us. Although the wine cabinet design has not been built yet, we have great confidence that this will turn out to be a wonderful eye-catching focal point of the space.
I ordered a custom wine credenza some months ago and I couldn't be happier. John and him team worked through multiple designs to ensure I ended up with exactly what I wanted. They delivered on time/on budget. There was an issue with one of the door seals and they came out immediately to fix. Great after delivery service.
