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.
Wine Racks and Case Storage: Avoid fluorescent illumination which ruins wine. Standard lighting is the regulation required moisture proof bulkhead lighting using normal LED lamps. Adequate lighting helps to locate bottles. Some form of racking and shelving is needed. The choice is very personal, and depends on whether it is a showcase type or a working cellar. There are designer built racks of hard wood which will provide an impressive display but are very expensive. The alternative is a mix of bins, rectangular, square or diamond shaped (recommended), and single bottle racks, with additional below counter level shelves for unbroken casesboxes.
That being said, it is crucial that you measure your desired placement site for your new wine refrigerator before you begin any construction or make any large purchases. If you do plan on installing a wine refrigerator directly into your kitchen cabinetry, make absolutely sure that your cooler isn’t too tall, too wide, or too deep for your counter top. Choosing the wrong sized wine cooler can be a costly mistake that is difficult to fix.
This also means that you should measure the bottles you plan to keep. Keep in mind that the average 750 milliliter bottle of wine is approximately 3-4 inches wide and roughly 12 inches tall. However, wine bottles come in a variety of sizes, so consider any exceptions to this measurement that you purchase frequently or would like to store. So, if you had roughly 20 bottles of wine that you wanted to store, consider storing them in a rectangle: 4 bottles by 5 bottles. If you allow 5 square inches for each bottle (including the dividing woodmetal), that would give you an area of roughly 20 inches by 25 inches. You can use this as a guideline when designing your home wine rack.
