Why build a wine cellar? You can live a perfectly happly life without ever drinking older wine, but you can have a happier life if you are able to lay some bottles of wine down in a wine cellar and let them mature. Just a couple of years in a cellar will smooth out the tannins and make the wine much more pleasurable. That applies to wines made with grapes other than cabernet sauvignon. Many Pinot Noir wines can develop multiple layers of flavor in just a few years. Even some white wines such as German Riesling and Chardonnays from Burgundy and Chablis cellar very well. Dessert wines can develop wonderful honey and nut flavors. Another fun reason to build a wine cellar with wine racking is having the room to set aside a case of wine and drink one bottle a year and record your observations. You can watch the wine evolve over time. That is really delightful.
Stellar Cellars has worked with serious wine collectors with thousands of bottles and bottles worth thousands for the past 16 years. We enjoy our work of building wine cellars for people because we love wine and love helping others protect their fine wine and enjoy them even more.
