Hopefully the above mentioned tips have given you a better understanding of what’s needed in creating the perfect underground wine cellar for your home. To ensure your wine-cellar is quality-made and everything you hoped for, be sure to enlist the help of a renovation builder to bring your ideal wine cellar to life. The experienced renovation builder will appreciate that your wine collection is your pride and joy, and therefore will aim to deliver an efficient and high-quality wine cellar for your home.
Wooden Rack Wine Cellar: Additionally, cold goes through the floor, spreads through the earth, and could cause condensation on adjoining house walls. If your cellar is on an upper floor, insulation of the floor is mandatory to avoid condensation on the ceiling of the room below, which if it is your neighbors could lead to very unpleasant relations especially if his ceiling plaster gives way. Similar considerations apply to insulation of the ceiling in cellars built within apartments. For upper floor cellars, check the floor loading factor. Domestic apartments are not built to take very heavy loads. A case of wine weighs 40-45 pounds. A six case high stack means a load of over 220 pounds on an area about one square foot. On 10 square feet you can pile 9 or 10 such stacks! Whether it is you or your neighbor below, structural cracks are not desirable.
The first principle for starting a wine cellar is to ensure temperature control. The perfect temperature for wine storage is a constant 55°F. Lower temperatures will throw the wine into a state of dormancy. For example, storing wine in the refrigerator at near-freezing temperatures will numb the wine, making it taste flat instead of fruity and lively. Higher temperatures will not only accelerate the wine’s aging, but when kept above 75°F the wine will slowly bake.
Wine Rack: Wine racks can be supplemental to any kind of wine-lover. Wine racks are great for storage, while smaller models can double as a display rack in your kitchen. There is also a greater variety of styles that wine racks come in, which gives you more freedom to decorate your kitchen the way you want to. Wine racks can be much more economical than wine refrigerators because they do not cost any energy and require little to no upkeep, unlike wine refrigerators.
