August 13, 2021 – Keeping bottles of fine vino, whether for investment or pleasure, is finicky business. It demands stringency and stability in an environment to thereby breed vivacity and excitement – over a month, a year, or a decade. Such storage isn’t for its own sake, after all. One must be able to inspect (or remove) bottles with ease to entertain and educate the curious – so it’s not just a matter of filling a dank basement and throwing away the key.

Forget basement wine cellars. Step into this Texan wine bunker built into the side of a hill.
