Things to Consider Before Building: A custom built wine cellar in the home is not as difficult an undertaking, nor as formidable an expense as you might fear initially. Ideal storage conditions for wine are simple, the bottles must be stored in a vibration free dark environment, lying horizontally and undisturbed, the temperature a constant 52 - 57 degrees Fahrenheit (10-15 degrees centigrade), and relative humidity no less than 70 percent. Where shall we put it? If one had the freedom (or luxury) of being able to carry out structural alterations (or even better, build from scratch), our personal preference would be a location with easy access from the living or dining room, preferably the former.
While you can purchase pre-made wine racks, you should also consider building your own. This is a good idea if you have specific wine storage needs that a pre-made wine rack will not satisfy, such as extra-wide bottles. Building your own wine racks can offer you more freedom to design according to your kitchen and personal style. You can even save money by building your own wine rack–if you do it correctly the first time. If you plan on installing a wine rack within your cabinetry, take the time to measure the area that you hope to convert and assess how many bottles could potentially fit into this spot.
