If you have a strong love for wine, then you might consider some additions to your home that will nurture that love. A wine collector can’t be stuck with a basic three-by-three wine rack, while the casual wine drinker wouldn’t necessarily need an entire wine cellar. It is important to assess your particular needs when it comes to your wine storage method, especially if you plan on redesigning your home or spending a significant amount of money. Below, we outline three different methods of wine storage to help you determine what organizational method is right for you.
Sub Floor Wine Cellar: The major (very major) disadvantage of below ground cellars is water, water leaking into the cellar. If you are on high ground, it is less of a problem, but not eliminated entirely. The best advice is three words: waterproof, waterproof and waterproof. And do not believe your architect or contractor when they tell you that the waterproofing they have provided is the industrial standard. Do like the airlines. Operate on a 200 percent safety factor. For below ground cellars, a dumb waiter (50 kg load sufficient) may be a luxury but is an enormous help. Carrying a heavy case of wine up the stairs is not easy.
