It is amusing to me to see how “plain” my cellar is compared to others’ cellars. When I was working with the racking salesman my contractor had reached out to I told him I was only interested in maximum storage in light of my desire for individual racking - and nothing that announced “I have discovered wine and I have money.” He had to twist my arm to have me accept that small row of displayed bottles, which I only agreed to in order to break up that long expanse of racking (28 rows of double deep racking 18 rows high, topped by double deep small bottle racking) that holds part of my burgundy stash. I wanted to maximize storage capacity, improve temp and humidity control, have some space for staging and decanting, storage for extra glasses and decanters, and softer flooring than ceramic tile. Fancy not in the mix.

We added a wheeled rack that has "display" slots on top. We use it as the drink now area.

Living in a flat at the moment so working with a mix of cabinets, cold cupboards, and off-site, but have a pic of our cellar in the Languedoc, just to bring things back into the rustic dimension again for a second;-)

Basically just a hole dug out under foundations - earth on all four sides so keeps things to below 20ºC even in the scorching Mediterranean summers. No room to stand up but I do love spending time down there!

Joe, that looks similar to mine. I went with traditional individual bottle racking, but I wish I did what you did instead and had them made as custom wood shelving. You can probably squeeze more bottles in, and you have more flexibility with OWC's, magnums and .375's. I may have even gone with solid bottoms to the shelves.

I actually stole the idea of the top portion from pictures on this site. Modified it a little bit. I think the pictures showed 2x4 cross rails and plywood tops. It may have been yours. But I new I wanted the bottom 36 inches to be more cubby like. My dad helped out a lot by cutting down 1x material into those tiny slates. Saved me a lot of money. I still have some sanding that should be done but.....

I designed this myself, including the box sizes and depths, in hopes of maximizing space.

I like it a lot, but I wish I had a whole other room with just regular racking that would make it easier to get to some of the more "hard to reach" bottles...

That OWC is what the mag of Mouvedre and the Mag of Andremily came in this year.

Nice, Matt. Very similar to my layout. And I don’t really mind the “hard to reach bottles;” much better than having them offsite (which isn’t even a real option for me)!

Here's mine. It's across from the dining room. It was a closet that we converted into the wine cellar. Dimensions are 4.5' deep x 4' wide, 10' ceiling on the high side, partially under the stairs. It's closed cell foam'ed in on all sides. We had cork flooring put down on the floor, which both dampens noise, insulates and has kept more than 1 bottle from breaking. Track lighting overhead that is on one switch and LED lighting inside the wine structure itself, which is both on a timer and can be Alexa voice controlled. My biggest problem is that it became way too small very quickly.

That I do, my friend! And the 3L Sutter Home is a 1974 Deaver Vineyard Special Selection. Bought at auction so a total crap shoot, but the price was right so it was worth a shot!

And thanks for the compliment on the cellar!

Yep, modified split system in the top/center of the wall. Works flawlessly!

Originally had our AC company install a commercial unit that they swore up and down would be quiet. It was literally roaring loud, to the point where I could hear it clearly upstairs. Found another company that specializes in these types of units for wine cellars and its whisper quiet. Probably less noisy than our actual refrigerator.

Hey Kirk, roughly 1000 total bottles with 32 mags and six, 3L+ racks. Hardest part about the cellar build was explaining to me wife why we still need offsite storage after we just built this thing.

The vintage view racks more/less hold champagne bottles just fine. You sometimes have to get a little creative with how you space them but totally doable.

I have always hesitated to post a picture of my cellar, because I don't have one. I have a basement. Here's a recent pic of part of it.
basement 4-17-19.jpg
Please note that the black thingy upper left next to the rack is a thermometer; the cord leads to a floor sensor. This is completely useless as in 20 years the highest temp on the top of the drinking rack has been 67 and the lowest temp on the floor has been 35. Also, one reason I bought the house was because most of the basement (the part on the right) is a six inch concrete slab, and we've never had more than 2 - 3 inches of water on the floor when it floods.

Not many locks that I can see on these cellars?
Actually 3 locks at the bottom. I have 2 young kids, but sooner than later.....those locks will be very much needed (at least if they take after their Dad)
I have a combination lock; doubt that it would stop any serious thief for long.

Thanks man! Was able to snag some at auction a while back for decent prices. Sadly those days are long gone :(
