As well as providing more than ample storage space, a wine cellar lets you showcase your passion and can even double up as a place to entertain guests and fellow oenophiles in the comfort of your own home. Before you get carried away with the beautiful design potential for your wine cellar, however, don’t forget the real reason for it to keep your wine in the best possible condition and preserve the quality and unique flavours in your collection for many years to come.
Best location: Wine cannot thrive in just any underground location in your home, so before you settle on a definite location for your wine cellar, take the time to consider certain factors. As underground wine cellars are commonly constructed in the basement, for example, consider what your wine cellar would be sharing a space with. Placing your cellar in the vicinity of a laundry room, a boiler or air conditioning unit, for instance, will all have detrimental effects on your wine collection. This is because wine is sensitive to vibrations and odours. The vibrations alone, from having these appliances nearby, is enough to shake your wine racks and stir up sediments in the wine. Similarly, if any odours are present around your cellar, wine can absorb them through the cork, so be sure to consult a renovation builder when deciding on the best location for your wine cellar.
