As well as providing more than ample storage space, a wine cellar lets you showcase your passion and can even double up as a place to entertain guests and fellow oenophiles in the comfort of your own home. Before you get carried away with the beautiful design potential for your wine cellar, however, don’t forget the real reason for it to keep your wine in the best possible condition and preserve the quality and unique flavours in your collection for many years to come.
The general rule when building is, the thicker the walls the better the insulation factor, the better the cellar maintains a consistent temperature. A vapor barrier and insulation is required. 6-mil plastic sheeting should be applied to the hot side of the cellar walls & ceiling. If it is impossible to apply to the outside walls then apply the vapor barrier from within the cellar. Wrap the entire cellar, walls and ceilings, in plastic, leaving it loose in-between the stud cavity so the insulation can be placed easily. Recommended MINIMUM R Factor: Walls: R 11 Ceilings: R 19
