For a wine enthusiast entering the real estate market, a proper wine cellar is often on the list of important amenities that a new home should have. A wine cellar provides two key components that a bottle requires for good preservation and graceful aging: darkness and the perfect temperature. Over time, a fine vintage that is well stored will improve, releasing more complex aromas and flavors while also increasing in value. Here are a few properties now on the market that will undoubtedly appeal to wine lovers.
