Your basement may be the best place to store your wine if you are looking for a passive storage solution (one that does not require a cellar cooling system or wine refrigerator).

Basements stay cool and damp naturally, two conditions wine needs for aging. Still, if you decide to keep your wine in the basement, you should measure that space's temperature and humidity before moving in your wine. You will likely find that you need to update your basement to maintain a consistent environment. Here are some tips on what to do and what you need to know to ensure your basement is wine-friendly.

Wine cellars are associated with tradition and class. Winemakers carefully follow time-honored traditions to produce a great-tasting product that is highly desirable. Once the consumer brings a bottle home, they follow traditions to ensure the wine tastes excellent once uncorked; storing the bottle in a specific environment, decanting the wine, serving the wine in wine glasses, and pairing the wine with a special meal. Wine collectors also take the time to learn more about the wine in their collection. From winemaker to the consumer, with so many traditions, it's no wonder that we associate everything around keeping wine with prestige.

Wine racks are made from many different materials.

Wood, metal, ceramic, and acrylic are just a few examples. When it comes to wood, the type of wood used to make wine racks can make a big difference. Wood can affect the wine cellar's look, the longevity of the wine rack, and even the taste of the wine. Wood is most often used to construct wine racks because it can withstand a wine cellar's cool temperatures and humidity. You will also notice that many wine cellars feature wood flooring for this same reason. Let's explore some of the different types of wood used to make a wine rack.

Redwood

Redwood is the best kind of wood to use inside a wine cellar. Redwood is primarily sourced from the damp forests of Northern California, which means it is naturally resistant to mildew, rot, and pests. Mildew and rot resistance is important because wine cellars are cool and damp environments. Redwood also has a natural oil that helps to preserve the wood. Redwood has a beautiful tone and will age well over time.

Constructing the Room

Pick a location for your wine cellar in an area that does not have direct exposure to sunlight or heat. It should have at least one external wall and proper ventilation. Wine cellars should be built using standard 2x4 and 2x6 construction methods and ceiling joists that meet local and state codes' requirements. Thicker cellar walls will provide a higher insulation factor and will help the room maintain a consistent temperature.

A wine cabinet is a furniture-style piece that has similar features to a wine cellar.

Inside the wine cabinet are racks that hold wine bottles horizontally. A cellar cooling system works to keep a steady temperature inside the cabinet while also maintaining humidity. Wine cabinets also have a digital control panel, interior lighting, solid or glass doors, leveling legs, and an exhaust for the cellar cooling system. Unless a cabinet is pre-made, it can be customized to match the style of a room. Here are a few questions to ask yourself when shopping for a temperature-controlled wine storage cabinet.

What is Your Budget?

Before you begin exploring your wine cabinet options, determine your budget.
