“Create something a little less ordinary with a spiral cellar”
Do you have a passion for wine? Indulge in that passion for wine with a wine cellar that spirals out of control underground. They are a very unique feature to have in a home and can be placed anywhere.
What is it…
I am a lover for wine and I think you are too if you are reading this article. Sometimes you are not able to have a complete cellar in the home, so why not alternatively have one built in the ground of your kitchen or another room in the home to add a great feature full of your favourite things.
A spiral wine cellar is made underground, that is capable of holding up to 1900 bottles of wine in full cellaring conditions. It does not require an existing basement or cellar and can be installed under any ground floor type.
It is built from engineered concrete and can be installed nice and flush in a fully furnished room, form a part of a new build or extension. There is little mess and is completed within 3-9 days.
How does it function…
The right conditions on how wine is stored in a cellar is vital. All of spiral wine cellars have a natural passive ventilation system, which means that warm air is continuously replaced by cool air. The cellar’s concrete shell has excellent thermal properties, that enables to absorb the natural grounds temperature just like in a traditional cellar. Place the cellar in the correct position in your home and create the perfect temperature throughout the shape.
A hole is formed in the area where you have chosen for your spiral wine cellar to go and an expert team will carry this out for you, if you have chosen for excavation and install option. They will carefully lift your existing floor leaving no MESS! It sounds so straight forward to me! If you opt for the installation- only option, your builder will handle the excavation and then the spiral wine cellar is completed by the company, installing the cellar itself, with the chosen lighting and door.
