What do you do when the investment value of your wine collection far surpasses the cost of the cellar you plan to build? You custom design the best cellar you can, of course. tech entrepreneur Craig Weiss did just that when he began looking for a home for his prized 3,000 bottle wine collection, to be housed in the dream home he was building.
Wine cellar designs typically emerge after the home is built, not before. "Not knowing what the costs to cover my pet project would tally, yet determined to design a cellar worthy of my collection, I kept the wine cellar separate from the cost of building the home so it would not be part of my contractor's meticulous budget," said , Vice President/Partner of Tower Ventures in .
Weiss hired Revel Cellars to build his cellar. He had read online articles about them in Forbes and Wine Spectator and liked how their unique cellar components allow the wine bottles and their labels to be showcased as opposed to traditional racking systems which conceal everything but the neck and cork end of the bottle.
