Cool Spiral Wine Cellars

When I was a kid my parents renovated a part of our basement and added a wine cellar.  
Presently I have a wine rack- no cellar for me.  Where we live there are no basements- nothing but rock under us- but if I was to build a wine cellar/bomb shelter I'd want one of these designs:

Designed by a British company their website states this is the:
 quickest, cheapest and easiest way of building a wine cellar for your house.




A watertight, pre-cast cylindrical system that's sunk into the ground, it can be located anywhere.  It can keep up to 1,900 bottles in perfect storage conditions and like a traditional cellar it relies on the surrounding earth for its insulation.

Dear me, you've identified a new lack in my life. I'd quite like a spiral shoe-rack as well.

Mise I was totally thinking that it could have other uses besides wine- Shoes is a great one- can you imagine!!

Erika @ ~TiptoeButterfly~ said...

i posted about this in one of my very first blogs - OBSESSED - this is just GENIUS - can u IMAGINE having that?!

Lenore @ Lather. Write. Repeat. said...

That's wild! I agree...I could hide all my shoes down there (if you made it a secret hidden door!).

Wowzers. I am speechless! So, so, so amazing.

Stacey said...

These are pretty cool designs, especially the last one!

Elisa said...

haha, I can think of the possibilities. My mother would use it as a pantry. hehe, my sister as a shoe rack, and me? to store books. It's a genius idea, I remember seeing it at a model home a few years back when we lived in Colorado. I just don't know if I could keep up with 1,000s of wine bottles.

All I have is a small wine fridge....love the idea of a basement wine cellar! Are you going to put one in your home?! Love the spiral:)

Clair said...

Looking at these pictures makes me dizzy, but what an innovative solution to a storage problem. l Elisa's comment about other storage possibilities had me laughing as I considered my overflowing fabric and yarn stash. Love the idea!

LOVE this-I'd feel like a secret agent every time I pulled out a bottle! My parents have a very traditional wine cellar (dark, damp, low ceilings, the whole nine), but I love the idea of a more modern installation!

Hi there!

Nice to meet you too. Thank you for your comment. I really like your blog!

I would love a spiral wine cellar like that. I'd probably use it for clothes or jewelry though. :)

Brandi {not your average ordinary} said...

Oh my -- these are beautiful. I only wish I drank more wine. I might have to get one regardless just to feel like I have a secret room in my home.
