Installing a row of wine cabinets in a living area can be a great alternative to building a wine cellar.
A wine wall creates a stunning feature in your home and a functional space to entertain your guests (as the room does not need to be set to 14°C). It requires less space than a cellar and allows you to keep some wine at cellaring temperature and some at ideal drinking temperature. A wine wall can also be a less expensive option than building a cellar.

WINE TASTING ROOM
Creating a wine tasting room and cellar is the ultimate way to showcase and enjoy your wine collection. Using wine cabinets allows the room to be at a more comfortable temperature for lingering in the space (rather than having the entire room kept at 14°C)
