This traditional home cellar is simple, elegant, and practical. If you’re producing mass amounts of wine, this is a great way to structure your cellar. The sturdy wooden shelves safely hold and organize your bottles, while the center island is great for tastings and preparation. We also love how this cellar incorporates the wine and beer crates into the design to bring everything together.

Those who prefer to have a cellar that doubles as a man cave can find one our favorites in Sydney, Australia. The use of dark wood, leather chairs, big books, and array of glasses make this rustic room the ultimate man cave/wine cellar combination. The alternating shelve heights make it easy to display bottles upright or lay them down horizontally.

Ideal for “Wine Wednesday” or a girl’s night, this LA wine cellar screams posh. The two vibrant wall panels emphasize the wine selection and frame the space very effectively, allowing room for a cooler and shelving unit to display glassware. Instead of having a dining room-style table, opt for comfortable chairs and a small coffee table in the middle to create a more livable space.

Now this is a one-of-a-kind wine cellar. Highlighted by the colorful LED lights, the wine bottles at this Nashville home follow the arches of the gothic-style structures (don’t worry the LED lighting won’t harm the wine!). The designer also employed a variety of hole sizes to accommodate different bottle types. The addition of innovative seating, a dark tile floor, and supplementary wooden shelves make this one of the most over the top wine cellars we’ve ever seen.
