basement wine storage

mpatselDecember 2, 2006

I have a room 4/x12 that has cement floor and walls. I store about 20 cases of wine in it. It stays cool most of the year but in summer due to an outside door that faces south the room get up into the 70's. Is there a small climate control or cooling system that I can use to keep this room cool in the summer?

I have a very long (sad) story you don't need to hear about this one.

After much work, money, frustration etc. etc. etc. etc. we discovered that IF you do not have expensive wines, they are fine where you have them. IF you have wines that you want to age, not drink within a relatively short period of time, you need to consider control options.

We have a corner wine cellar type thing in our finished basement similar to your situation, but no really expensive wines.
