It all started back in 2005 when Chris Giantomidis decided to align his decades of carpentry experience with his passion for wine in order to construct custom wine cellars instead of participating in the boring cookie cutter theme of today’s home building industry.
With our family’s help the name we chose for the company was Cava; a term used to refer to a type of table wine from Spain, also the slang for a cellar in Greek.
We started out as a one man show in a one car garage converted to a workshop. After a few years it became apparent that Cava Wine Cellars needed to expand and so the company doubled in size when Chris’s son Niko came aboard. A larger and up to date facility to accommodate more projects is the next step and is slowly being built in between cellar projects.
Every new cellar becomes a fond memory as well as the looks on our clients’ faces when they see their new cellar completed for the first time. That’s what keeps us going and keeps us so committed to our work, delivering a wine cellar that leaves them speechless.
The cellars we build are much more than just another project to us, we dedicate ourselves to it wholeheartedly and do everything we can to have the client fall in love with their cellar as much as we loved building it.
Your wine collection can say a lot about you. How you store it can say a lot about us.

We will come to you to take measurements and provide suggestions on location and configuration.
Our climate control specialists will calculate the perfect capacity cooling unit for your cellar and discern if a split or ducted system is best for the space.
Our experienced designers will work with you to create computer aided designs of the cellar that best suits you and your collection.
Whether its wood, metal, limestone, acrylic or any other material wine racking, we can install it all.
If you want your wine cellar in an existing room or an unfinished space, we can do everything from start to finish so you know it was done right the first time.
You can call us for repairs, accessory changes or to set up a cooling unit service plan. The last thing we want is a warm cellar, even if we didn't install it!
"Had I known about Cava earlier, the project would have been quicker because they build cellars from start to finish and know all the do's and don'ts...They were professional, tasteful, neat, prompt and reasonable. I couldn't be happier and I would recommend Cava to anyone."

"We had an excellent experience with Cava. Chris did everything (and more) that he said he would do and the result was amazing. In addition, unlike many contractors, the final price we paid was exactly what he estimated it would be. I would recommend Cava unqualifiedly to anyone."

"I found Cava Wine Cellars Online. I wanted to surprise my husband for his 50th birthday. Cava came out and converted a basement closet into the most stunning small wine cellar. My husband was thrilled! Their work and customer service are the best. They are incredible!"

"Good news! The 300 bottle wine cellar you built us is now full! We would like for you to come expand our cellar into the exercise room or build a new one taking part of the garage."
