O.K...the trim around the door isn't finished yet, and I'm not so sure about the paint scheme on the outside...

Yup. This is our private stash.

Looks good, how many bottles can you store?

Around 1,200 if you include the boxes above the racking. Right now we're at about 800, and we're always getting more...

So when are you doing my place? Looks amazing!

Thanks, ETS! I'd be glad to share any and all of my construction details with anyone interested.

Start to finish this project took me 2 1/2 months...most every weekend and many evenings were spent on this project to get it finished...

Whoa...why don't they have :toast: "beer cellers"? Not much of a wine drinker, but that looks cool. Is this a collection? If so, what is you most prized item? I don't think your filling this up out of your local Wal-mart, but you never know.

Is this a collection? If so, what is you most prized item?

Yup. This is a collection of wine that we've been working on for about 8 years. Not sure which is the most "prized" item, but most of them are wines from small wineries in Napa and Sonoma county. Most of them you've probably not heard of... Most of it is red, but I think there might be 5 or 6 white wines in there, too...

Some of the better ones are:

Tom Eddy
Abreu
Chateau Palmer
Petrus
Pahlmeyer
Pride Mountain
Screaming Eagle
Ridge
Paloma
etc...

If you'd like the list, I can send you a copy of the database :eek:


ETS will be happy to know that I'll be using this space for my beer processing as well. It maintains a 60 deg. temp. 24/7/365 :D

So - is it a bad thing that you have 2-3x more bottles than where I BUY my wine?


That is absolutely a thing of beauty. I can't even begin to imagine.

Looks to me you need to spend more time sippin the wine and less time storing the wine :banana: That is quite impressive collection!

Congrats! That thing is a work of art. Now set back and drink some of that vino and enjoy the fruits of your labor (no pun intended :D )

Looks great M-Funf. Did you build the racks or buy them. I almost have my basement and bar area done and was toying with adding a wall rack from Vintage View.

Looks like a giant jig saw puzzle. So what type of wood did you use??? Clear pine, poplar, teak??? Glued and nailed or dadoed??? Pretty impressive :toast:

I bought them. I was going to build them, but after doing the math, the wood was going to cost as much as the purchased racks. They came "mostly" assembled. All I had to do was nail them together (def needed the braid nailer for this) and attach them to the wall.

Check out www.rosehillwinecellars.com Their prices were the best I found, were very helpful, and gave me a discount because of the number of racks I purchased. I also purchased the cooling unit from them...

Thanks! It's redwood. They had options of cedar, redwood or mahogany. I nailed them, but if you wanted them to "creak" less, they could be glued, too.

Thanks jr!

Bring it on!!! Bring the MC, too :woohoo:
