Before you build a wine cellar, take stock of how many bottles of wine you plan to store. If you currently have more than 500 bottles of wine, you should consider a walk-in home wine cellar. This is especially important if you plan to continue to increase the size of your collection. Choose a room that is large enough and can withstand necessary renovations, including converting it into a cool, dark, calm and airtight space. Install wine racks and make sure your wine cellar is functional and spacious. Do not be discouraged if your wine cellar seems too big at first because not all of your wine racks are full. They will continue to fill up as you continue to collect your favorite labels.
