So you want to start a wine cellar. We don’t blame you. There is nothing quite like uncorking an exquisite bottle of wine that you have carefully aged yourself; a Bordeaux, for instance, that has increased in quality and price with age that you got for a steal en primeur 15 years back.
Aging wine has many positive attributes, including:
So you want a cellar to please your palate and impress your friends, but where do you start?
While “wine cellar” may evoke images of dark, musty caves, or elaborate wood-lined rooms, neither are required to create a good cellar. All you need to create a “cellar” are:
Stable temperature, absence of light, and limited vibrations are three critical elements to a successful cellar. Each helps prevent the rapid deterioration of the wine, and in addition, by creating a uniform environment, they take some of the guesswork out of the aging process itself. Avoid heaters in the room as they are liable to cook the wine, and, if possible, choose an insulated room. Seasonal or gradual changes in temperature are fine (within the above range), but rapid temperature changes should be avoided at all costs. If you do not have the means to control the temperature, focus finding a location with the proper temperature range and on insulating your wine using polystyrene. If you don’t have polystyrene available, even using bubble wrap, or keeping the wine in their wooden boxes helps.
Humidity helps keep natural corks in good condition which is critical for successfully aging your wine. Dried corks, either due to low humidity or improperly storing your wine (standing up), shrink, which allows more air into the bottle which increases the rate of aging. Most “age worthy” wines are still sealed with natural cork, though it is important to note that some wineries are now using screwcaps on even their better wines. Only time will tell how well the wines age with these new closures. Humidity should preferably be between 50% and 80% - the ideal percentage is somewhere north of the median.
Clearly a cellar can range from a hall closet, to a room in a basement, to more elaborate wine refrigerators or professionally designed cellars. A personal note regarding wine refrigerators, from our experience, most are designed for a certain size and shape bottle, and if you planning on storing a range of bottle sizes, the storage capacity is probably higher on paper than in reality as you will have to adjust shelving to accommodateChampagne
bottles, magnums or other less common bottle sizes.
How big a space are we talking?
A very difficult question to answer definitively as it depends on: 1) your goals as a collector; 2) your rate of consumption; and 3) your resources. Essentially a collection can be as few as a couple of cases in the back of your closet to multiple rooms in your basement or more! If you are using an existing, defined space then you already have a limit, and you can fill it as quickly or as slowly as you would like. If you are creating a space, or purchasing a storage unit then the three aforementioned factors come into play. The most common mistake that we have encountered is that people underestimate their storage needs. Wine collecting is a lifetime endeavor, and you don’t want to outgrow your capacity too quickly. If you are building a space you will probably have a professional to consult, but regardless, it is better to be prepared and build in room to grow.
Let the collecting begin! But wait, where do you start?
