Hire a pro to build your wine cellar

Filling a wine cellar with treasured bottles is fun. But without a good storage system, you may accidentally damage your precious finds.

Hiring an expert to create your cellar ensures your investments taste their best, whether you drink them in a month or a decade after buying.

Koolspace Wine Cellars is one of the best-known resources for wine cellar building and design in Calgary, Canada. Whether you are in need of a refrigeration system, or you want a dedicated climate-controlled room in your house, the team at Koolspace can help. (Check out their work on Houzz.)

And Billy Carpenter at Vin de Garde can customize sleek, modern cellaring options in your home that will rival that of any high-end wine bar in the world. I especially love the credenzas for holding glassware, but the sommelier-designed custom racking systems are also impressive. Check out more on Houzz.
