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 sample of our favorite wine rooms that have aged to perfection.

Fill 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. The property’s vineyard produces around 400-500 cases per year including Sangiovese, Syrah, Cabernet, Merlot, Rose and Sauvignon Blanc varieties, so you’ll never run out of savory options!
2735 Ocean Boulevard, Corona del Mar, CA | $22,999,000
Featured in Wine Spectators Magazine in 2009, this one-of-a-kind temperature controlled wine cellar houses nearly 4,000 bottles. Harnessing the authentic European cellar feel with wood beamed ceiling, stone floor, and antique art, this is truly a rare find.
14 Strauss Terrace, Rancho Mirage, CA | $16,995,000
Reminiscent of an Italian villa, this superb setting will make you think you’re toasting in the Tuscany. Built for grand scale entertaining, the fresco ceiling, rich wood tones, and intricate stonework complete the Mediterranean spread.
