Wine aficionados will concur that having a wine cellar in your home provides an element of luxury and convenience, and it will undoubtedly impress your guests. Experiencing wine at precisely the right temperature, that has been stored with the perfect amount of air flow, level of humidity, correct lighting and with minimal vibration, is a far superior sensation than without careful consideration of these factors.
A thoughtfully stocked and attractively presented cellar is a desirable addition to any home and this first-class asset can support a successful sale when the time comes to move.
If you already have a cellar in your home, designing a custom wine collection can be made easy with the help of an expert. Specialist wine curators, such as Stocked Cellar in Melbourne, can undertake private wine purchasing or ongoing cellar management.
Marshall White sales executive and expert on the Bayside luxury market, Matthew Pillios says, ‘a wine cellar can add a touch of class to any home. Having a vast selection of wines correctly stored at home can allow you to bring out the right bottle for the right occasion. Whether that be a special celebration, a dinner party or even just when you are relaxing to watch your favourite movie.’
