Our cellar - Its not fancy, its functional, for a purpose. People often ask me about cellar design. Its a cellar - for wine storage. If you're creating a showroom or tasting or dining room, then so be it.. But who wants to dine in 58 degrees?
Hence, we have several racks of various bespoke designs, not perfect, but uniquely 'ours', and each a special memory, and functional for the long run, especially those over-engineered or excessively designed, all purpose built for our cellar.
We hold about 2000+ bottles in our cellar, and while we're at a stage of life where we should be consuming our wine, we still tend to acquire our share as well so the holdings remain the same. We have almost as much have fun acquiring the wine, as we do drinking it.
Two other dimensions of our cellar collection are vertical and horizontal holdings of particular labels, producers, or vintages. A vertical collection is a series of different vintages of the same label. A horizontal is a collection of different labels from the same vintage.
