Our Top Picks for 10 Best Basement Wine Cellars

February 19, 2021

At the end of a long workday, even if you’re working from home, it’s nice to head down to the wine cellar and open a bottle from your collection. That collection can be 1,000+ or a dozen. It’s whatever fits you, your home, and your budget.

A basement is a perfect place for your wine cellar. It protects from damaging sunlight and the temperature along with humidity can be readily controlled. 

Here are our top 10 picks for basement wine cellars.
