I'm in the process of building a new house. I keep hinging between open rack storage with a few wine fridges for our best bottles vs a full on cellar. The idea of a devoted cellar sounds great, but its also a lot more expensive than wine fridges. I can buy 2 fridges for a couple thousand. Are there any other options for cooling besides an exterior evaporator unit? This will be in a finished basement so hanging a wall unit isn't an option for me. I live in Northern Illinois so summers aren't horribly hot. We will be putting radiant floor heat in the basement so I would need to segregate the concrete floors before they'r poured. I don't want to have the proposed cellar floor to have floor heat. Any thoughts? Currently, my collection is next to nothing as our house burned this spring. I do hope to start making wine again soon and we buy quite a bit as well.
