If wine is your passion, you’ll want access to your collection - to enjoy, to admire, to share; even just to walk in the stillness of the organic ageing process. But in a home cellar your wine is exposed to risk, which could affect the financial investment you’ve made in it:
…there’s a flood and the labels are washed off?
…heat affects the organoleptic quality and age-worthiness?
…failed aircon or chillers compromise ageing?
…you need to move your collection?
…you buy wine on your travels and it’s damaged before you get home?
…it turns out you under-estimated the value of your collection?

Wines become more delicate with age, and extremes of temperature, variation in humidity and vibration can damage their quality and the predictability of their evolution.
