A Gorgeous Place for Wine (And Very Air-Conditioned Parties)

Favorite wines deserve a special storage spot and to be shared

At a constant 62 degrees, our wine cellar is the “cool” hot spot to party with friends in the heat of summer. Its rustic yet sophisticated design exudes intrigue. The cellar’s construction required blasting twice through blue granite—the hardest of all granite—to get 15 feet underground. We love to collect wines and have approximately 1,200 bottles (all reds) from around the world. Over the past 10 years, we expressly bought special wines in hopes of using them someday for our kids’ weddings. Someday has come. We will be celebrating marriages this year.
