M Cellars Case Study
“Staff and customers are commenting on the improvements and these also added a nice look to the interior. The texture of the Tiles resembles the texture of the ceilings. It’s a nice added touch that blends aesthetically. Guests are happy they can hear the stories behind each bottle of wine we create.” - Matt Meineke
Matt Meineke and his wife are local vintners and restaurateurs in Northeast Ohio. They opened their winery, M Cellars, to the public in 2012 and started scheduling wine tastings, weddings and family gatherings. The winery has beautiful woodwork and exposed beams with bare walls and ceilings that allowed for a tremendous amount of noise. Matt reached out to Audimute when guests started to complain that they could not hear the descriptions of wines during their tastings. Matt had heard about our work from his friend, Mike, who had recently installed Acoustic Tiles at Lure Bistro in Willoughby, OH.
Because M Cellars is a local company, we were able to do an on-site visit to the winery. At the visit, it was evident that we needed to perform a custom design rendering that would showcase where we would balance the room’s acoustics using AcoustiColor® Panels. Our designer went to work and was able to layout where the tiles would be placed and how we could use our partnership with Sherwin-Williams to blend the tiles in with the ceilings. Matt was impressed with what he saw and placed an order for 139 2x2 AcoustiColor Panels.
The Meineke’s love their new Acoustic Tiles and say that patrons and staff are impressed with the acoustic treatment and can hear the difference when having conversations, learning about the wines at tastings and while dining. Matt, along with most of our customers, value the Acoustic Specialists’ time and how we can diagnose the solution appropriately to fit the needs of their budget and décor. “Staff and customers are commenting on the improvements and these also add a nice look to the interior. Guests are happy they can hear the stories behind each bottle of wine we create. And the texture of the tiles resembles the texture of the ceilings. It’s a nice added touch that blends aesthetically.”
Audimute was able to create a remarkable sound experience for M Cellars by ensuring that any Audimute solution would guarantee guests and employees the extraordinary acoustic impact inherent in their current design and leverage earth-friendly, sound control technology. We greatly appreciated the opportunity to demonstrate the efficacy of Audimute’s solutions.
