The word " wine cellars" often bring up imagination of splendor and pleasure. After all, the finest European villas take pride in their wide collections of wine cellars. Even the finest restaurants in the locality brag about the meticulous way they have kept their expensive wines in a very good condition.

The more focus on wine cellars tend to leave an average person to wonder what a wine cellar is for, and more so, when he or she begin to question whether their love for wine is posh enough to want them to actually buy or build a wine cellar at home.

I know for a fact that most wine enthusiast would not need a fancy storage for their wines. Instead they will focus on carefully chosen bottles they will be drinking on a regular basis but in a small quantities. This kind of wine consumer, building a wine cellar at home would be needless.

For wine lovers who enjoys having collection of varieties of wines, or enjoy stocking wines, a cellars solely for wines will be indispensable. A wine cellar can placed in any suitable location in your home.

Before you buy a wine cellar, there are certain thing you need to put into consideration, for example, the size, humidity, light, vibration, and the temperature. In other words, how large the wine cellar will be, how many bottles capacity does it have. This can also be in relation to the availability of the amount of room you have available for your wine.

Temperature, light, vibration, and humidity controls are important to keep your wine in high quality condition. Too much light (especially sunlight or fluorescent light) is known to damage wines. Your wine cellar should offer a darkened storage space.

One of the enemy of wine is vibration; too much of disruption to the sediments in wine, will cause it to have color and taste change. The more delicate a wine has, the exposure it will have to vibration and light.

Another factor you should consider is humidity, as it known that too much of humidity may cause the wine to mold and too little humidity may also affect the cork to shrink, which in turn lead to wine spoilage and and spillage. The recommended optimal humidity for wine is about 70%.

And finally, temperature is another factor that need consideration, because higher temperature will reduce the flavor of the wine and lower temperature will cause the wine to freeze.

So when deciding to buy a wine cellar, you should first of all consider some factors for instance:

- How many bottles holding capacity does it has.

- How many bottle of wines you would like to store

- The sensitivity factors in terms of how much sensitivity you need to control the temperature, light, humidity, and vibration.

- Whether the wine cellar will be placed in the open or somewhere in the room.

Essentially, buying the right wine cellar comes down to the features, the price, and space. So, you know your drinking habits hence, buy the best wine cellar you can afford which meets your current needs, and have room to expansion.
