History of Wine Cellars

wine cellar doorsBefore getting into wine cellar doors.  Let´s talk about wine storage.  Wine storage began in the underground wine caves of Europe. These caves provided the consistent storing conditions that allowed wine to age at an elegant pace. By convention, these conditions have become the standard for modern wine cellars: The ideal wine cellar temperature range is 55-58 degrees and 55-75% relative humidity.

Our wine cellar doors work with all interior and exterior wine temperature systems to help maintain these ideal conditions, gracefully aging your wines, and keeping them at their peak for years to come.

5 Tips for Designing the Best Wine Cellar Doors

To ensure you make the right decision when choosing the door for your cellar, consider the following components:

  1. 1. Materials.  Although there is a wide variety of materials possible, in most cases wrought iron or steel provide a strong decorative enhancement with added benefits.  Durability, strength, security are just a few of the characteristics that iron or steel provide.  Combined with glass you have a room and wines to properly showcase.
  2. 2. Air Tightness.  Your cellar door should have weather stripping around the frame and a sweep on the bottom. Frameless doors should be avoided given they do not provide an airtight seal.
  3. 3. Dimensions.  Depending on the size of your cellar, you can choose a single door or a grand entrance composed of a single glass or insulated glass panels on one or both sides. This option can add security to your cellar while showing off the splendor of an interior.
  4. 4. Security.  There are numerous methods of securing your wine cellar with door locks. The simplest method is a standard lock-and-key or deadbolt lock.  Newer options include keypad lock or even fingerprint access to secure your investment.
  5. 5. Personal Touch.  If your choice of door includes iron, you can be as creative as your imagination allows.  Your creativity will help you create a safe home for your wines with fit, form, function and beauty that will make you forever proud.
