Lighting Your Wine Cellar

Lighting Your Wine Cellar

Using lighting to create the right ambience for your wine cellar is easy. Here are a few tips to get you started.

Watch the Heat

When choosing lighting for your wine celar you want to go with a low-heat bulb. LED's are ideal for this and come in many color options.

Lighting the Area

Your wine cellar will typically have shelves from the floor to the ceiling. Illuminating the area can be achived with track lighting, allowing you to focus each light at a certain point, or you may want to choose wall washing down-lights. Either can add elegance and intrigue to your wine cellar.

Accent Lighting

You may want to focus attention on a certain bottle or area in your wine cellar. Accent lighting allows you to do this easily. LED strip lighting is the easiest way to go. Placing a LED light strip under the cabinet is a great way to put focus on your favorite bottle of wine.


Adding backlighting to your shelves can create a great effect. LED's work great in this situation too. Remember not to use too much, as some feel that light will degrade the wine.

As always, should you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
