Small spaces wine storage

Small, usable wine spaces are a passion of mine. Obviously, I love the big, expensive cellars, but it’s just harder to personally relate to the concept. 200 well-planned bottles, 30% in constant rotation, and the remainder aging as determined. That is all I’ll ever need, regardless of what I dream about (and hopefully one day build for others!).

The best part about these spaces is they can be easy, and relatively inexpensive, to build. Stocking, of course, is a matter of taste and budget. But, no matter how rich your taste is, it’s far cheaper to fill 150 slots than 5,000!

This is the first wine bar I built. 90+ bottles, required almost no space, just a deep wall and an outlet. I found a year-end GE Monogram wine refrigerator for a great price, ordered maple cabinetry from Kraftmaid, and sourced the honed granite countertop from remnant material at a local granite cutter. The backsplash is a simple travertine with a hand made, beach glass colored glass tile set in the center.
