WHY APEX DOES NOT OFFER NOR RECOMMEND STAINING
Care must be taken to prevent introducing odors into a wine cellar's environment. Wine cellars are built so that outside air and heat will not enter the room. As a result, the air and smells inside the cellar remain fairly constant for a long time.

The natural scents of wood and wine are common, however, care must be taken not to introduce the harsh odors of water and oil based stains. Since there is no outside air circulation the harsh odor of stain can remain in the cellar for a long time.

This may cause two issues for your wine cellar: First while cork is an effective seal against liquids, it is permeable to air and the harsh stain odors can penetrate the cork and adversely effect the wine. Second, the enjoyment of the wine tasting experience can be contaminated by the influence of the stain's odors.

Apex simply can't guarantee that if the racking were stained that the stain odors will not cause problems for your cellar and therefore does not offer nor recommend stain for your racking.
