How to Build a Wine Cellar


With West Coast Wine Cellars, building a cellar is an efficient and enjoyable process. From your initial in-home meeting with our knowledgeable sales and design team, through our detailed design process and culminating in the construction and installation of your cellar, you and your wine collection are our top priority.

No matter where your cellar space is located in your home, from hallway closets, to crawlspace build-outs, to extensions off your existing structure, we will guide you to the perfect location. An entertainment space for your family and friends, a personal escape into the world of your wine, or a secure and controlled environment for your investment, we can transform your dreams into reality.

The quality of our work is a reflection of our 30 years of collective experience designing, building and installing wine cellars. Let us handcraft your ideal wine cellar which you will enjoy for a lifetime.

The West Coast Wine Cellars Design Process


Starting with an in-home consultation, our design team will gather all the information, ideas and vision you have for your cellar and guide you through our design process, answering any questions you have along the way.


Our design process is centered around your vision and the storage needs of your collection. We will create design drawings and a detailed quote that showcases functionality and personal touches that will make your cellar uniquely yours.


We will work with you on scheduling construction and installation times that fit your schedule. Our installers are courteous and professional, always striving to exceed the expectations that our clients expect and deserve.
