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
- 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.
Cost of building your own spiral wine cellar
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.
