Door In The Floor: Wine Cellars of the Rich...(If Not So Famous)

Did you know, that just a mere $30,000 will buy you the subterranean spiral wine cellar -- of your dreams?'s true.

It seems rich wine nerds now have a wine cellar. And as the photo above would indicate, these nerds are installing doors in their kitchen floors, that lead to a spiral staircase surrounded by wine.

And in addition to being a totally (as well as "certifiably") badass idea as this recent article over at Gizmodo points out, a spiral wine cellar uses the ground to keep bottles at an ideal temperature without needing a whole host of fancy electronics. It saves space and, no doubt, seems it's cost effective to boot.

By the way, these Spiral Cellars come in sizes that can hold between 1000 and 1600 bottles.

So needless to say, if you've got that many bottles, (along with an extra thirty thou lying around somewhere)...then I say, "Why not?"

Well ... the cellar looks really neat, but all I see is the potential for people to trip over the door and hinges on the floor.
