Consulting and Troubleshooting

Wine Cellar Consulting

Any aspect of building a wine cellar can be accomplished by a person reasonably skilled in construction and woodworking. The only thing preventing them from constructing a wine cellar that isn't a hazard to the wine or the building's structure is just a few crucial pieces of information. Nobody wants to invest all the resources needed to build a wine cellar, put tens of thousands of dollars worth of wine in it, and then discover a mistake that will ruin either the wine or their home. Spending an hour or so with a wine cellar expert before embarking on a wine cellar project can save a lot of heartache.
