Why Build a Basement Wine Cellar?
Storing wine commercially can be expensive, and retrieving a single bottle or case can be inconvenient and costly. Having a basement wine cellar allows you to store your wine collection in optimal conditions, ensuring proper temperature, humidity, and lighting.
Types of Wine Cellar
Wine cellars come in two broad types: passive and active. Passive cellars utilise the ground temperature to regulate the cellar, while active cellars are well-insulated rooms with special air conditioning chiller units. Each type has its advantages and disadvantages, and our team at OLBC can help you determine which type of wine cellar is best suited for your needs.
Types of Wine Racking
At OLBC, we understand that wine collectors have different needs and preferences when it comes to storing their wine bottles. Our experienced team can assist you in choosing the ideal wine racking solution that complements your collection and design preferences.
We offer a range of wine racking options, York stone shelving, and concrete stacking systems:
Wood – The majority of our clients have bespoke joinery grade timber racking catering for box storage, bin storage and individual bottle storage according to predicted bottle type.
Glass – Bonded glass shelves are a real design and display statement. Many clients have a double glazed viewing wall into the cellar or wine room too.
Metal Display – Metal can be very effective for display racks in the wine cellar.
Metal Utility – An excellent utility solution for a really large wine cellar or if you have a back room to your wine cellar for large stocks of everyday drinking wine or wines that are just not ready. Metal utility racking used in this way can be very cost-effective and quick to construct.
Stone – York stone shelving is a traditional solution and looks magnificent. It adds thermal mass, as the stone is heavy, as well as humidity stabilising effects, as it is porous.
Concrete – Popular in Europe, concrete stacking systems are ideal for large areas where an industrial look is required, and also for use in passive wine cellars (such as the winemaker’s cave) as their thermal mass helps to preserve the temperature around the bottles. They do however take up a lot of space and are probably not ideal for modest basement wine rooms.
