24/7 Wall St.: Eight Amazing Home Amenities for the Rich

Wine Cellar Entertaining

Location: Greve in Chianti, Italy
Home price: $14 million
Square footage: N/A

While living in a Tuscan villa may not be realistic for many Americans, the idea of entertaining in a classic wine cellar may translate well for upscale homeowners who have room to spare. On a related note, Boomsma reports that some homeowners are building wine bars in their bedrooms, which in some ways takes this idea a step further.

Morris’s architectural view: A wine cellar is “becoming more than just a closet with wine in it — it’s an intimate entertaining space. Some are in the style of a castle grotto with stone and wood and a little table to have dessert, even within the wine cellar. The lack of windows increases the level of intimacy.”
