The article presents suggestions from Craig MacPhee of the company Eurocave for people thinking of establishing a cellar. He states that people should never assume that going underground will automatically provide a cool home for wines. He suggests that cellars should be properly insulated. It is essential that the doors of the cellar provide an airtight seal, otherwise all the good work can be lost. He also gives suggestions related to racking, temperature and humidity control, and design.
