Buying a Stand-Alone Cellar
Many thanks to Mike Bassman, who wrote "Buying a Stand-Alone Cellar," an outstanding article based on contributions and suggestions from members of the Wine Lovers' Discussion Group. It is published here with Mike's permission and our applause. "If you're in a house, maybe you've got an actual cellar that is cool enough or that you can cool. If not, though, you start thinking about self-contained refrigerated storage cabinets, the kind they advertise in the back of the Wine Spectator and its ilk. Here's the collected wisdom of the WLDG as regards these units, which helped me find my way to delightfully chilled cellar nirvana." http://www.wineloverspage.com/cellarbuy.shtml
Horse Ridge Cellars
Horse Ridge Cellars calls itself "the most advanced and secure underground wine storage facility in the United States." This is arguably true: It was originally built as a Cold War bomb shelter, designed to withstand an indirect hit from a nuclear warhead!

Wine Cave, in Kingston, N.Y., is not just a New York State Liquor Authority licensed and bonded facility but a most unusual cellar indeed. In the 1860's, says proprietor Vince LoDato, this splendid bluestone mine just 60 miles from New York City in the beautiful Hudson Valley was formed. Now it's the first fine and rare wine storage facility located in a cave on the North American continent.
