Wine cellars throughout Southern California
Wine cellars have been around long before refrigeration was even a possibility. In fact, large wine cellars date back over 3,700 years! Technically speaking, wine cellars are traditionally below ground, while wine rooms are located above ground. The purpose of a wine cellar is to provide consistent storing conditions that allow wine to age in ideal conditions. Typically, these conditions include a room that is 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit and has 65 to 75 percent relative humidity. Light is also a factor in wine productions. Cellars are kept dark to ensure the wine is not exposed to light — which can affect the quality.
