I ran out of rack slots so I bought two of these display racks. 54 more spots for wine!

6 years away, it's my son's birth year wine delivered by Christian Moueix in his luggage when he came to NY. There's plenty of other good stuff to drink if you ever in Walla Walla.

The “cellar” at my new flat. I’d originally planned on building some racking in a different part of the house, but this wall of bookshelves in my living room served admirably. Except In true WB fashion I have been here for a couple weeks and I am almost out of room.... [berserker.gif]

Daily drinkers on the left, “not-so-daily” on the right. It's room temperature obviously, so anything truly precious will go into either a wine fridge or professional storage, I haven't decided which.

What I do not really understand: do people really sit in their cellar and tasting and talking ...?
Either it´s too cold (55°F or below ?) to be comfortable ... or it´s too warm for the wine?

Bruce, nice cellar and display racks. I am in a similiar situtation, ran out of room in the cellar and am looking to add some display racks like yours. How did you mount them? Are they mounted on a stud or did you reinforce the wall and mount?

Each of the display racks are two parallel mounting brackets. The outer most bracket of the racks are screwed into the studs. The Inner brackets are installed using heavy duty drywall anchors. The anchors are supposed to each hold 50 lbs. I am more worried about earthquake than I am about the racks falling off the wall.

Our Nice France apartment has a new fridge. A Liebherr split unit fits maybe 250. You can see the Med Sea view in the reflection of the glass. Unlike the California cellar, this will largely have daily drinkers of rose, bubbles, chablis, beaujolais.

Same, here. We have a table but no chairs and enjoy hanging at the table to start the evening off with some tastes.

On the left is the double deep rack that holds around 500 bottles which are wines ready to drink, rest is stored by regions and when will it be ready to drink, the deeper and more inaccessible are the wines that wont be ready in near future, many of which can use another decade or two, I love structured wines.

Those of you who have fully framed and finished basement cellars, how much did they cost to construct? If you didn't need to do any framing , just insulation, drywall, and racking (ie. turning an already existing basement room into a wine cellar), what do you suppose that might run if we weren't looking to get too fancy with flooring/fixtures/etc?

I have an unfinished basement, with part of it framed and dry walled off for storage. I recently converted it myself into a wine cellar. Involved putting in insulation and sealing it up and putting a wine cooler unit into the wall. Also have 3 wine racks, with room for more as I build my collection. The insulation and sealing materials were ~1k, the cooling unit was 1.5k, and each wine rack that holds ~100 bottles is $500. WiFi temperature monitor is around $150.

I didn’t drywall over the pink board insulation, just painted it white. It’s definitely not a room to show off, but it serves its purpose and I could probably fit 1k bottles in there if I needed to. Holds a steady 55f quite nicely.

We wanted to be able to entertain in our underground cellar, but wanted to retain an old world look. As such, we did not want to have our wine behind glass. A great solution was, when building the cellar, to put heating coils under the stone floor, but only in the central area where the table is located. The wine is behind the arches (where the floor is not heated). The bottle temperature does not change while the guests are comfortably warmed at the table.

You're well on your way! Are you DIY for this project?
Definitely not a DIY. I have hired this out to a good renovation guy who has previously done other projects for us (new kitchen, bath and patio enclosure). I originally found him on the local Angie's List. He has never done a cellar before; however, he is very capable. After having done extensive research, I told him what I wanted/needed. He is doing everything except the closed-cell spray foam in the walls and ceiling. This will not be fancy, rather utilitarian. Painted walls, click lock vinyl flooring over the basement slab, simple insulated fiberglass entry door, CellarPro 3200 VSi. Planning to start with racking that I currently own, then add as needed.

We wanted to be able to entertain in our underground cellar, but wanted to retain an old world look. As such, we did not want to have our wine behind glass. A great solution was, when building the cellar, to put heating coils under the stone floor, but only in the central area where the table is located. The wine is behind the arches (where the floor is not heated). The bottle temperature does not change while the guests are comfortably warmed at the table.

Colin, that is lovely!

Love the arches.

Did you ever get to visit the wine shop in the basement at the Rio Hotel back when they had the Napa restaurant? Your brick and arches remind me of that lovely shop.

Erik: We moved to Las Vegas December 2017, and love living here. Although we are not gamblers, we enjoy the phenomenal restaurants, shows, professional sports, golf, etc. We would love to see you if you come to Vegas! E-mail me when you know you are coming. [cheers.gif]

Jeff: Our racking and wrought iron was all custom (done by a woodcarver who is also blacksmith). The wood is distressed butternut. It looks like your project is starting off great. Good luck and remember to have fun with it! [dance-clap.gif]

Mark: Thanks for your kind words. It was definitely a labor of love. [thankyou.gif]

Anton: Thank you for your thoughtful words. With respect to the Napa restaurant at the Rio, we never did see it. It sounds like it was a cool place. I love old world architecture that includes arches. We were just in Italy and I was in "hog heaven," viewing cellars that were as old as 3000 years! [notworthy.gif]

Thanks for the reply. I just love that cellar.

looks like a fun place to root around in. Do you keep an inventory?

Mine after Carte du Vin moved to a new warehouse. My home cellar is a twin to Russell's.

I have an unfinished basement, with part of it framed and dry walled off for storage. I recently converted it myself into a wine cellar. Involved putting in insulation and sealing it up and putting a wine cooler unit into the wall. Also have 3 wine racks, with room for more as I build my collection. The insulation and sealing materials were ~1k, the cooling unit was 1.5k, and each wine rack that holds ~100 bottles is $500. WiFi temperature monitor is around $150.

I didn’t drywall over the pink board insulation, just painted it white. It’s definitely not a room to show off, but it serves its purpose and I could probably fit 1k bottles in there if I needed to. Holds a steady 55f quite nicely.
That's good info, thanks!
