  2. The Wine Cellar: New favorite room

    The Wine Cellar: New favorite room

    Before - The Cellar After - The Cellar   The Stan Story Stan's basement was a room fit for lawn equipment, a ladder and boxes filled with holiday decorations, but hardly a place to properly cellar over 2500 bottles of wine.  Wine is a delicate matter here at Vintage Cellars and cellaring wine at an improper temperature in an...
