We are a family owned design-build company that specializes in the construction of wine cellars using historic materials.

Friedrich "Fritz" Gruber founded the company in 1984 with the aim of constructing high quality custom homes. However, his love for classical architecture and wine took him down a new path:
“My lifelong passion for erecting historic vaults in the form of wine cellars brought us new customers. These lovers of good wine encouraged us to press forward and we have evolved into a company capable of building wine cellars of any dimension in any country of the world”.

Through the years, Fritz has continually experimented with construction techniques, styles and combinations of materials. Starting with antique bricks, whose origins date back to the Austrian-Hungarian Monarchy, he has added many types of limestone, including those obtained from historical sites where wine culture originated, including Bordeaux, Italy and Greece. The steady innovation process, traditional European craftsmanship and our vast experience, enables us to offer a variety of wine cellar designs and styles, from medieval to modern.

Our clients continually pressed us to completely furnish their cellars, which led to designing, fabricating and supplying our own wrought iron works. We now provide everything they desire, from custom wine racks, wood and glass doors, decorative locks, several styles of lamps and lighting, gates, stair rails and assorted accessories.

Our family's passion is to preserve classical architecture, and the centuries-old construction techniques used to create these treasures, and pass forward this living legacy and skills to future generations. For this reason we employ only our own masons, blacksmiths and artisans, who have been carefully apprenticed by us to maintain the highest quality and ensure our client's complete satisfaction.
