Why Not add a Wine Cellar to Your Home?

More Savvy Tips

Most people who love fine wine know that you should store the bottles on their side in a cool place. But there’s more to it than that, if you start getting serious about collecting wine. Market Engineering, a Diamond Certified company, says the ideal storage temperature is 55 degrees Fahrenheit with a relative humidity of 70%.

You can get creative with your home wine cellar. And, they can be built in all sizes to fit a closet, a bedroom, the garage or even an attic space. According to Market Engineering, all the walls, floors and ceilings need to have a vapor barrier and rigid urethane or fiberglass insulation. The door needs to be an exterior grade door that is weather stripped on all sides. When tightly sealed, the room is then ready to have the cooling system and wine racks installed. Wine collectors install cellars for the love of properly aged wine and because the improvement adds value to the home.
