“Iconic European design now available in North America for the first time.”
Genuwine Cellars is proud to be the North American representative for Spiral Cellars (a U.K.-based company that has installed over 3000 Spiral Cellars in Europe over the last 30 years).
Launching off our expertise in custom wine cellars, Genuwine Cellars will be tailoring their version of the Spiral Cellar for the North American market, complete with premium finish options and a commercial-grade climate control system dedicated specifically for wine storage.
A Spiral Cellar is fabricated from precast concrete modules and can be fitted into the ground below a property (including in areas with very high water tables), or above ground within a basement or crawlspace. A Spiral Cellar can form part of a new build, or be a part of a renovation project. Either way, it usually takes no more than five to six days to install.
There are several entry-door options available, ranging from standard wood to retractable glass. The Spiral Cellar also offers several available upgrades, including premium leather step treads/flooring; LED lighting package; and premium finish options, including color selection.
Entry-doors are reinforced and can bear significant weight load, and all doors are available as a standalone option.
Genuwine Cellars offers full installation services for Spiral Cellars throughout North America. Our service is virtually turnkey: we will assist you in choosing the optimum location in your home; we will provide your local engineer with a thorough Engineering Package (complete with structural calculations); we will perform a site visit to ensure the excavation (if required) is performed correctly; we will deliver your cellar to the project site; and of course our trained team will install your Spiral Cellar.

Frequently Asked Questions
My engineer has suggested that the property foundations will need to be underpinned or taken as deep as the cellar?
In general, you need not worry about adapting or enhancing existing or planned foundations. The cellar will be encircled with a concrete ring, which gives the cellar its own structural integrity and handles incoming surcharge from adjacent footings. Post-deposit, your engineer will be provided with all the relevant technical information.
Do I need to get planning permission to have a Spiral Cellar?
In the UK, planning permission is not normally required because the Spiral Cellar is not considered a habitable space, but it may be requested by a local North American building authority.
My preferred location for the Spiral Cellar is in a room that adjoins my neighbour’s house. Is there anything I need to consider?
Considerations for a party wall are applicable to a Spiral Cellar installation if the excavation is planned to be within 10′ of a neighbouring owner’s building or structure. This is generally a straight forward process, and is typically not comparable to obtaining planning permission.
What about Building Regulations?
Building regulations approval is required when installing into a habitable space such as in the home or an attached garage. A Spiral Cellar is generally not considered a habitable space (in the UK) so the cellar does not need to comply with certain regulations, such as requirements for a handrail and the ‘rise’ and ‘run’ of the staircase treads. This may not be the case for every North American site. Investigation into your local building code is recommended.
I love the glass doors but am concerned about scratch marks.
All of our glass doors feature scratch-resistant, toughened glass to ensure they look as good as possible, for as long as possible. With just a little care they remain in excellent condition for years.
I’m building a new property. What do I need to consider to include a Spiral Cellar?
We would encourage you to book a consultation as early as possible so that we can ensure your Spiral Cellar ties in with the project plans. This will reduce the chance of duplicating certain costs and will guarantee we are able to fit into the program.
I see that Genuwine Cellars offers the White Spiral Cellar. Can I get the Original Spiral Cellar instead?
Genuwine Cellars has focused its North American offering on the enhanced White Spiral Cellar (full bottle depth modules, white rustic concrete, larger dimensions).
