Third, if you tend to keep some bottles for months or years before drinking them your 200 count [average] capacity Eurocave [or other storage system] most likely won't cut it any longer. If you found yourself nodding in agreement with any of the scenarios above, then you just may want/need to consider a Spiral Cellar [which you see pictured below].
The first time I took a look at this concept, I was quite excited about it. When I shared this marvelous idea with Mrs. Cuvee, let's just say she was less than thrilled [insert eye-roll right here] and I thought sheesh what a buzz-kill.
"Go ahead, build a deep, dank dungeon, with a trap door no less, into your kitchen floor and of course your significant other will be so pleased with this idea." [wink, wink]The question becomes, what to do? Well you could always rent a backhoe and dig a hole in backyard to create your ultimate cellar or you could order another Eurocave or alternative storage system?
Maybe, but what if you are just flat out of space to add another stand alone? This system from Spiral Cellars may very well be that answer to those questions. It may be time to dig-down-deep, but before you do I've outlined some of the pros and cons below.
Well then I may have the answer you've been looking for, a visit from the folks at Spiral Cellars who can for about 30k [ouch] on average, get to the bottom [literally] of your wine storage issue[s]. Who knows, it just may be the ticket to finding that "right-size" cellar so many collectors or vino-sapiens would [need] love to have.
Seriously though, check out this option at Spiral Cellars [sadly I didn't have the coin to get one]. This appears to be a great (albeit, initially expensive) way to keep your wine chilling at the right temperature, save on energy costs and be "green-minded" all in one fell swoop.
Cons: Okay yes there's a downside, as with everything in life. The cost is a bit prohibitive for a large majority of folks, including myself.
Second, digging a hole down into the foundation of your home may not be the best idea for structural integrity no matter what their engineer's tell you.
Third, well your friends or family may think you're just a kook [or eccentric at best] and further conclude that you should be heading to AA meetings to consult with your higher power.
