Guidelines: When constructing a Wine Cellar, be it a dedicated room, a closet renovation, or a cold room conversion, the basic element you are trying to achieve is an environment in which your wines can be safe and protected while they mature. To maintain this environment you must isolate the interior of your wine cellar from exterior conditions. The ideal set of parameters - a constant ambient temperature of 12 C (55 F), little or no light, relative humidity around 60 - 70 % and an undisturbed area free from vibration and odors - defines the environment your trying to create for your wines. If your stray outside these ranges the greater the chance the wine may age poorly. With this ideal set of parameters your wine will age gracefully on a smooth path to perfection.
A growing trend in cellar design is for compact and hidden away cellars, such as spiral wine cellars. These are concrete, cylindrical systems that are completely watertight to keep your treasured collection safe and can store more than 1,800 bottles! Not only are spiral cellars a fantastic space-saving solution, but with a sleek trap door design, they also look ultra-high-tech. It’s not every day that a trap door in the home leads to an impressive and beautifully arranged wine collection! Since not all wine bottles are made equal, it’s also wise to consider a versatile wine rack system in your cellar design, allowing you to house bottles of all shapes and sizes. Horizontal covers are a good alternative to standard rack designs, since these can hold varied sizes of bottles securely with the labels on display.
