Wine enthusiast? Time to install a home wine cellar.

As any wine enthusiast can attest, having the ability to select a favourite vintage from their own wine cellar at home would be an absolute dream come true. However, Dino Colloza, sales director for Lancaster Custom Cabinets and Closets believes that building your own wine cellar does not have to be just a dream.

“Having a wine cellar cabinet is definitely attainable for the everyday homeowner,” he says. “Homeowners are finding areas in their home to showcase their wine collections … off of a dining room, inside a pantry … and even in their front foyer with a custom cabinet that accents the home décor”.

In fact, as trusted GTA custom cabinet manufactures since 2008, Lancaster Custom Cabinets has developed an extensive portfolio of projects in all shapes and sizes, to meet any budget.

Getting Started spoke with Colloza about what the average wine enthusiast homeowner should consider when taking on this exciting home enhancement project. “We always ask our customers to do their homework when it comes to wine cellars and the space they want to store their wine in”, he says.“[Having] proper electrical hookups is required for the wine cooling unit and having the walls insulated will keep the room temperature tight”.

Of course having enough space is a potential concern. Generally, the assumption is that building a wine cellar can only be accomplished in the sprawling basement of an estate home. However, Colloza says that this is a misconception.

Ideal Conditions

“There is no real rule of thumb on a minimum amount of space that is required to house a custom wine cellar cabinet.” He says that a smaller wine cellar cabinet is only about 6-feet wide, while a larger wine cellar, generally found in a basement or other small room, is typically the size of a walk-in pantry.

“Lancaster can definitely handle all areas of the wine room from cabinet manufacturing to room preparation,” he says about the proudly Canadian business. “The advantage of having a custom piece built is that Lancaster Custom Cabinets can outfit any size space that a customer envisions.”
