Should you decide to construct a wine cellar, choose an area of your home that has no exposure to sunlight. The heat from the sun can have a negative effect on the quality of your wine stock. This is why the basement area is preferable for a wine cellar. If you must choose an above-ground area in your home, try to have your wine cellar towards the center of the home. The room you choose should also be able to handle a cooling unit and racks for your wine collection, while still allowing enough space to walk-around and add other furniture to the area.
