Trendspotting: Bespoke Wine Rooms

We’ve unscrewed the cork on the latest custom home trends and found that bespoke wine rooms are a growing obsession among luxury homebuyers. For the avid wine connoisseur, the average 6-bottle wine rack just isn’t up to snuff and finding a full-bodied wine cellar is right up there with bedroom count and square footage. Whether there’s storage for a dozen bottles or a hundred, a custom wine cellar lets wine age in style while also providing an intriguing venue for tasting parties and entertaining.

Here’s a sampling of our favorite wine rooms that we think have aged to perfection.CBIO9505lanialane-high-67Fill this stately 3,000-bottle wine cellar and tasting room with your world-class wine collection or if you prefer, the estate’s unique private label.
