Where were the first wine cellars?

The First Wine Cellars

The Romans were some of the first people to understand the benefit of keeping their wine underground in cellars. It was a natural way to keep the wine cool and keep it from spoiling. That is why so many wineries still store their products in casks and bottles underground in caverns and caves. It keeps the wine fresh longer, helps it age, and is the best environment for fine wines.

Today, you don't have to dig a hole in the ground to store your favorite vintages, you just need to understand the basics of wine storage, which you'll learn here!
