Hello wine experts,
I need some tips on creating a low-cost wine storage area in the basement of my new home to store about 300 bottles in racks.
In my previous house (100 y/o building) the basement had a "cold room" that would ony fluctuate from about 40F in the winter to 65F in the summer. My new house has a normal basement and the only spare room I have is a small utility/furnace room with normal stud and drywall walls and a door to close it off. Has anyone found a way to keep this kind of room cool enough for wine storage without spending a fortune on high-tech climate equippemnt? What other targets should I have for such a room?
I don't have a high-dollar collection (most are in the $25-$95/bottle range) but I do enjoy my wines and I would like many of them to last for a few years to come.
Thanks for your help
