Does my wine storage unit have to be huge and expensive?

Don’t hold off building a home wine cellar because you don’t have the space or the funds for a whole room installation. A home wine storage unit may be as small as a single wine cube or as large as your imagination. On the smaller end, wine storage units may be a multi-cube tower in your dining room (or living room), or else a wall-mounted cube in your kitchen.

Intermediate wine storage options include a single wine tower, capable of holding 45 bottles, or a wall of wine cubes, that will hold up to 500 bottles. These can be installed in a closet-size wine pantry or be freestanding in your living area or dining room.

More elaborate wine storage units include custom installations and separate wine cellars. These generally include a temperature-controlled environment and multiple wine storage racks. Extras might include stone countertops, off-set lighting, a table and chairs and decorative moldings.

Whatever size you choose, the goal of a home wine cellar design is to display your wine collection; store the bottles horizontally to best preserve them and organize your wine so you know what and how much of each vintage you have.
