your perfect wine cellar

Cellar Door 28

Your unique number

Your private cellar should be as individual as you are. Each cellar was once a prison cell with its own unique number which is still present today, giving you the chance to own a piece of history and a truly personalised space.

Tailor-made cellar

Your tailor-made cellar

Every wine collection is different, so why not design a cellar to your needs? Our designers will work with you to realise the perfect wine cellar, whether you prefer wall-to-wall racks or room for a tasting table. The choice is yours.

Climate-controlled

Your cellar environment

As a lover of fine wine, we take your cellar’s environmental factors very seriously. Your cellar is housed within the cool bluestone walls of Pentridge and fitted with cutting-edge climate control technology to protect your wine collection against temperature, light and humidity.

Entertain guests

Your private entertainment

Invite your family and friends to experience your private wine collection within the architectural beauty of the Pentridge prison building. Bring along your favourite cheeses and enjoy tasting your wine collection in a unique historical setting. Cellar owners have access to special rate packages to host larger private functions.

Secure your investment

Your security and access

Your wine collection is an investment, so security is paramount. A former prison provides an excellent environment for security, in addition to 24-hour CCTV throughout the premises, giving you peace of mind. You can visit your cellar at your convenience, with individual swipe cards that allow all-hours access.

Concierge service

Your concierge service

If you need a bottle from your cellar but don’t have the time to collect it, your concierge service will handle it for you. Your exclusive service includes receiving and cataloguing your wine, and same-day delivery from your cellar to home, work, or as a gift within metropolitan Melbourne.

Design your bespoke cellar

Wine cellars should be as unique as their collectors. Our designers work closely with you to personalise your plans, fitting your cellar with customised ambient lighting and tailor-made racks for up to 2,000 bottles.

Choose from a range of fine polished timbers, colour options and floor finishes for a truly bespoke wine cellar.  Select from a variety of racking systems including functional mesh racks, modular strip racks in elegant black or brilliant stainless steel and more. Pentridge cellars have display cellars for you to inspect to assist you with ideas and design options.

More than just wine storage

Your cellar is not just wine storage, it’s an experience. Bring it to life with a tasting table and glasses so you can enjoy your personal cellar with loved ones or colleagues.

Personalise your space further with custom-built shelving for glasses and other accessories. We can install premium refrigeration solutions to cater white wine or Champagne, taking your cellar to the next level.
