If you collect wines, you want to age them in the best possible conditions so that they might develop complex flavors, intensified aromas and deeper colors. To do that, you’ll need a room for storing your wine properly.
Take a look at seven wine rooms, from a modernist one in Los Angeles to a classic vaulted-ceiling one in Calistoga, that make use of interesting materials and spaces with stunning results.
1 of 7 | Beverly Hills Warm Contemporary
This modernist compound in the prestigious corridor of Upper Angelo in Beverly Hills enjoys panoramic, unobstructed views of downtown Los Angeles and the ocean beyond. In addition to its “smart house” amenities, the estate features a custom steel and glass, temperature controlled wine cellar that is the envy of all visitors who see it. Not that they can’t partake. The adjacent wine tasting room makes sure of that.

7 of 7 | Updated Historic Spanish Estate
"Wine cellar" doesn't quite begin to describe the nature of what you'll find in this updated and historic Spanish Colonial home just a short stroll from the ocean. Wine gallery is perhaps a more accurate description for the spacious, glass-enclosed room cradling bottles of immaculate California grape in hand-crafted diagonal shelves. The sight of the wine is nearly as pleasing as its taste.
