Home Sellers With Wine Cellars

Syndicated — In upper echelon homes, the list of "standard amenities" is where the wheat is separated from the chaff - and the haves from the have-nots.

We're talking indoor pools, gourmet kitchens and master suites that occupy entire floors. If you have to ask how much, you're in the wrong place. That's especially the case in homes that come with an entire room dedicated to one sweet, singular task: Wine storage.

For the aficionado and collector, a full-blown wine cellar is a dream come true. And even for those who don't imbibe, or are too young, that does not preclude the luxury appeal of a wine cellar.

Just look at Justin Bieber. The pop star's new $6.5 million home in Calabasas, CA came with a wine cellar and he's only 19.

For those of us who store our wine in a pine rack in the pantry, or keep some box Chardonnay in the door of the refrigerator, let's have a little fun. We're touring a few luxury wine cellars with all the trimmings. All you need to do is provide your own glass.

Wine Country

4088 Atlas Peak Rd, Napa CA

Previously listed: $3.475 million

What better place to start the wine tour than California? This Napa Valley home sits on 4.5 acres of vineyards where Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes are grown. It also comes with a large wine cave, perfect for stashing as well as tasting the latest vintages.

Tasting Room

17720 SE 40th Pl, Bellevue WA

For sale: $2.25 million

The den of this wine-lover's home contains a cozy corner stacked with a vertical bottle rack and a plush leather chair, an ideal spot for sipping. Or, you can pull a bottle from the collection and head out onto one of the several patios facing Lake Washington from this Bellevue home.
