Your wine cellar is more than just a storage solution, it’s a room where your collection can be displayed in all its glory, which is why lighting plays a big part in the overall décor. We’d recommend installing low-voltage or LED lights, as these will give off the least amount of heat. Using bold bright lighting can risk damaging the wine, so opt for a lighting solution that allows you to read the labels clearly without causing too hot an environment. It’s a good idea to install set timers and motion sensors in the cellar to make sure lights are only on when necessary. If lights are left on for long periods, this could heat up the cellar and put all your efforts to waste. Recessed lighting and sconces can provide fairly subtle, yet effective lighting solutions.
Airflow and ventilation: Since wine thrives best in cooler temperatures (and ages more slowly), the importance of adequate airflow and ventilation in an underground wine cellar cannot be over-emphasised. Maintaining good airflow to your cellar will keep it free from any persistent odours and will ensure a healthy and long-life for your wines. The room adjoining your wine cellar is known as the exhaust room and if you want your cellar space to stay at a cool and constant temperature, the exhaust room will require a cooling unit. A cooling unit will blow cool air into the cellar at a 45-degree angle, which then pushes warm air to the ceiling. This warm air is then brought into the unit and passes into the exhaust room – helping to regulate the temperature in the wine cellar.
