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.
However, much like wine racks and wine refrigerators, it is extremely important to measure and plan extensively before you break ground on this project. Many of the rules that you should consider when building a wine rack or purchasing a wine refrigerator still apply when building your own wine cellar, but there are more considerations as well. Because wine cellars are typically meant for large-scale wine storage and aging, be sure that your cellar is sufficiently insulated and protected from the elements.
