If you enjoy the taste of an exceptional bottle of wine, no doubt you’ve dreamt of dedicating space in your house to the collecting, storage and display of your vintage favorites. Obviously, here in Florida the standard basement wine “cellar” is not an option. No worries, however, architects have devised some great designs for those of us in the tropical environs who demand and appreciate the finer things in aged beverages. Quick term definition here, thank you Wikipedia: An above-ground wine cellar is often called a wine room, while a small wine cellar (fewer than 500 bottles) is sometimes termed a wine closet.
Florida residential wine cellars are designed to not only store your finest wines in ideal conditions but to also add value and beauty to your home. In addition to keeping your wines safe, your wine room must also entice your guests since this room is on the main floor and typically well within view when guests are visiting.
IT STARTS WITH THE DOOR
An important aspect of an attractive home wine cellar (Yes it’s just a room. See above.) is a well-designed entry door that also complements your existing home decor.
