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.
Doors & Lighting: Two more elements that can have an effect on the environment of a cellar are doors and lighting. Doors must be of an exterior grade with a full weather stripping. If a cooling unit is being installed, without the weather seal the cellar will not maintain its proper humidity or temperature levels. This is the most common problem with cooling units running continually. Solid core doors, or doors with glass inserts, make sure the glass is double thermo pane and tempered, are used most often.
