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.
Insulation and vapour barriers: A poorly insulated wine cellar will cost you more than a few ruined bottles in the long run. Storing your wine correctly means keeping temperature and humidity levels under constant control, so you’ll need to invest in the kind of insulation that’s up to task. In maintaining the correct insulation of your underground wine cellar, you’ll need to install a vapour barrier to keep your cellar free from the humidity of the surrounding area. A vapour barrier generally consists of a closed-cell spray-on insulation foam and should be placed on the warm side of your walls and ceiling. This keeps moist air inside, whilst preventing condensation developing on the outside of your wine cellar walls. Consequently, being able to control the amount of moisture in your cellar will help to conserve energy and prevent mould growth too.
