Building a home wine cellar can create the ideal environment to store your wines. Temperature is always a major consideration in wine storage and the ideal wine storage temperature is between 55ºF and 58ºF (13ºC-15ºC), although any temperature between 40º-65ºF (5º-18ºC) will suffice as long as it doesn't fluctuate too much. Ideally, the humidity should be around 70%. If you can't achieve these temperatures in your passive cellar then you may require a cooling unit.
Even if it's the best wine in town, but if it's not served in its right temperature, then it will give out a bad taste. If the wine is hot or warm, then the alcoholic taste of the wine will be more dominating than its other tastes. They usually are served starting off with the temperature of 19 degrees Celsius down to as cold as 5 degrees Celsius.
This is the reason why you just can't place them in your usual refrigerator, for a regular fridge would be at around 2 degrees Celsius while your freezer would give out 0 degrees Celsius in temperature to freeze your waters to form ice cubes. If you are very much particular in serving your wine in its best shape, then you should be able to install wine cellar cooling units in your cellar. You will definitely be convinced that the best wine that you have there is really the best when served at the right temperature.
The ideal temperature and humidity of any wine cellar would do well to mimic the natural conditions of France's legendary wine caves, which are acknowledged to be close to perfect. Keeping the rest of the world's cellars at the same 55-57 degrees Fahrenheit (14 degrees C) and with an average of 60% relative humidity generally requires some form of dedicated wine cooling system. To properly control the cellar temperature and humidity, the system should take into account and manage not only the cellar's temperature but also the vagaries of the climate in which you live. It is hotdry? Hothumid? Colddry? Coldhumid? Will your system also be required to supply heating to maintain the correct winter temperature? These are all important considerations when building or retrofitting your wine cellar.
