The Collector’s Edition | Wine Cellars
Posted on February 6, 2018 by sothebysrealty
Corkscrews, glasses, and decanters are all elegant, essential tools for wine-tasting; but for the true oenophile, nothing beats the holy grail of a unique, well-stocked wine cellar. Ready to impress guests—and yourself—in your own private tasting room? Here, we present six homes to house your wine collection.
Telluride, Colorado, United States
Telluride Sotheby’s International Realty | Contact Bill Fandel for more information
There’s no quintessential après ski indulgence as beloved as a drink after a long day on the slopes. Paradiso in Telluride is an incredible contemporary home with an unbeatable mountain setting. The property includes a beautiful reflective pond, indulgent master and guest suites, and cozy living areas with impressive fireplaces, indoor and out. Grab a bottle from the glass wine cellar and cook something up in the Bulthaup-designed chef’s kitchen.
Sainte-Marthe, Quebec, Canada
Sotheby’s International Realty Canada | Contact Bea Jarzynska for more information
Unmatched equestrian pursuits rule this stately Quebec home just 45 minutes from downtown Montreal. Over 50 acres of manicured grounds offer plenty of room to ride. Inside, classic architectural detailing outlines every room. Between the luxe master suite (with its huge dressing room) and inviting common areas, there’s plenty of room to enjoy a post-ride Riesling in the inviting warmth of the wood-clad wine cellar.
Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa
Lew Geffen Sotheby’s International Realty | Contact Samir Jhina for more information
Between the helipad and two-story pool house to the tennis court and heated pool, you’ll have plenty of reasons to open a bottle or two and relax at this grand South African estate. Marble flooring, detailed crown molding and cornice designs, one-of-a-kind finishing, and sweeping cherry wood set a tone of royal repose throughout.
The bar offers plenty of working space for arranging charcuterie boards to pair with your pinot noir, and landscaped fountains provide the perfect accompaniment to soak in the flavors of a South African Chenin blanc.
São Paulo, Brazil
Bossa Nova Sotheby’s International Realty | Contact Julio Cesar Rodrigues for more information
Good friends, good wine, good life—that’s the positive motto setting the tone at this lively apartment in Itaim, São Paulo. Quirky design choices and a fantastic location near Brigadeiro Faria Lima Avenue and Pinheiros Club make this home the choice spot for those seeking easy access to the warmth, food, and joie de vivre of Brazil. Pairs well with a spicy red blend.
Kampa Island, Prague, Czech Republic
Czech Republic Sotheby’s International Realty
The perfect palate cleanser: a historic, full-bodied house on Prague’s Kampa Island has undergone a clean, fantastic reconstruction. The character of the property has been maintained, with the original cellar now converted into an impressive, chic wine cellar. Stash bottles for an end-of-day sip after exploring the legendary Lennon Wall, neighboring Grand Priory Palace, and nearby French embassy.
Israel Sotheby’s International Realty | Contact Shelly Belzer-Smelzer for more information
Consider this stone wine cellar the fantastic, lingering note of this full-bodied estate in Israel. Gold leaf inlay ceilings and moldings, commissioned chandeliers, a private elevator, and in-floor heating make the 25-person dining room, 10 bedrooms, and grand master bedroom—not to mention the rest of this 1620-square-meter, four-story mansion—a standout in function and design. Enjoy a glass of your finest with guests as you take in the panoramic views and sunsets over the Mediterranean Sea.
When choosing the perfect pairing for the modern collector, it ultimately comes down to preference; but each of these stunning properties offers its own distinct style and complex, unique finish.
