Spiral wine cellar cost guide

If you love wine, then chances are you've dreamed of owning your very own wine cellar. In this spiral wine cellar cost guide, we'll take a look at exactly how much you can expect to pay to construct one.

A spiral wine cellar is a great choice. It’s compact, allowing it to fit into even the smallest of homes, plus it looks great too! And you might be surprised to hear that getting a wine cellar installed in your home is a lot more achievable than you might think.

You can buy a spiral wine cellar kit ready-to-go from companies like Spiral Cellars. These aren’t cheap, but they do make the process of getting a spiral wine cellar installed quick and easy.

Spiral Cellars’ self-build kits range come in at around £35,000 on average. But of course, this doesn’t include any installation costs.

You can usually pay extra for full installation, but we’d always recommend getting some quotes from local tradespeople first. This way, you may be able to get the job completed for less.

Build your own spiral wine cellar

If you’re looking to build your own spiral wine cellar, you’ll need to bear in mind that a wine cellar has to adhere to a number of requirements to function properly. It should be:

  • Easily accessible
  • Big enough to store a number of wines
  • Cool
  • Dark
  • Vibration-free
  • Not too dry
  • Constant in temperature
  • Constant in humidity

Any materials that you choose to use in your spiral wine cellar will also need to be able to withstand this environment.

Spiral wine cellar price

If you can take on the bulk of the work yourself, you should be able to reduce your total spiral wine cellar price. One community post on The Wine Society features a guy who undertook his whole spiral wine cellar build himself, giving him a complete wine cellar for a bargain price of just £2,159.

However, the job is pretty complicated – you’ll need to think about ventilation, structural support, your existing floor joist structure and more. So, unless you’re very confident with DIY, you’ll need to get contractors in to help.

Spiral cellar cost key takeaways

  • Save on spiral wine cellar costs by getting multiple quotes from local tradespeople.
  • Don’t forget to budget for reinstatement of your existing flooring as well as the excavation of the cellar itself.
  • Use materials that can withstand a wine cellar’s environment.
