Paint in a wine cellar

Post  Zachary L A N G on Mon Jan 26, 2009 5:05 pm

I am finally building a wine cellar. I am planning on leaving the racking natural wood, but what about the walls? They are going to be sheetrocked for now. Do people recommend leaving them plain - does the paint/plaster smell get into the wine?

Lots of higher end ones have redwood planking on the walls or stone tiles with grout. I wouldn't worry about paint smells once it has completely dried. I would however worry about peeling due to humidity levels.

My cellar is painted and I've had no problems.


The solvents in normal paint evaporate pretty quickly. I don't think you have much to worry about once the paint is dry, although you may want to leave the door open and stick a little fan in the cellar until the paint is completely dry. If nothing else, the fumes can make it uncomfortable to work in there.

No problem with peeling either as long as you use a decent paint. Definitely use a sheet rock primer / undercoat.

I used latex bath and kichen paint over green board.

My wife wants to use Tounge (sp) oil on our racking. I dopn't know why the racks just can't be plain.

What I am fighting with her on, though, is that she wants to stain our racks while the wine is still in the cellar. I prefer not to have my wines exposed to that smell.

Correct-o. Use latex gloss or semi gloss. Think of it as your bathroom (and as Victor HOng would say...."especiarry if you have rots of Chateauneuf").

Tung Oil is very pungent and can take several days to weeks to completely dry...especially in cellar conditions. If it is "dried" tung oil, then it has VOC solvents and they won't be good for the wine..

I don't think I would do any of this while the wine is in the cellar (even the paint). The solvents may not make it through the corks but I wouldn't take the gamble.

Bob, back in the day I made quite a few custom cutting boards and butcher blocks. I would finish them with raw tung oil and they would have to cure outside in a workshop for at least a week to get rid of the odor. The "dried" version with solvents is much worse. But, they do give a very rusty appearance to the wood and they pop the grain very nicely for aesthetics.

Just go to Home Depot or Lowes and whip out the boys and they will match them perfectly. I guess in your case, you will have to go behind the paint counter.

My pleasure. One thing though, Cojo's more fashion; since we're talking home design here, this one would be more a propĆ³s.



As for setting you straight, I'm afraid that's a much more challenging job princess. Twisted Evil
