7 Impossibly Gorgeous Wine Cellars
Granted, these are suited for serious collectors (and enthusiasts), but if you’re expanding that wine rack into a room, here’s inspiration.
But to a budding connoisseur, collector or investor, the thought Do I have the right wine? doesn't register panic or anxiety. They probably have several bottles of the perfect companion (and they want to show these to you). If you've moved beyond the 30-bottle amateur threshold, it's likely you're beginning to register a gnawing panic about storage space while holding an image of a beautiful tasting room, all custom-made and personalized, in your head. Let's uncork this idea.
In wine and foodie culture, where you store, sip and savor that Argentine Malbec is an extension of the experience, an essential to the art and pleasure. If you have a slide-show in your head about dank, forbidden, off-limits wine cellars somewhere down those basement stairs, take a look at these stunners from Chicago; a Farmhouse wine cellar in Napa, Calif., an Anglo-Caribbean-style space in Palm Beach; a tasting-sitting room in Rumson, N.J. All these rooms have, well, robust flavor and a good finish.
For pure engineering chutzpah, we've not seen anything like the wonderful swiveling shelves concept introduced by Revel, the "Bentley of wine cellars." (A Forbes piece claims Revel's hush-hush list includes celebs Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and billionaire Richard Branson.) Salud.
