The basic purpose of a wine cellar door is to seal the door opening so that you are able to effectively maintain the temperature and humidity levels inside the wine cellar. This is why a door made with LVL* construction is extremely good for wine cellars. The LVL* construction not only adds better insulation to the door but is less likely to ever warp due to the high humidity in a wine cellar.
If you prefer to have the door constructed in a simple, yet classic pattern you can choose a glass door with a square glass, arched glass, tri panel, or top panel glass. Alternatively, you may opt for more intricate designs that stand out and make the face of your wine cellar exude a romantic and stylish appeal. Such wine cellar doors can be in wrought iron or with wrought iron grills and elaborate embellishments. Any door chosen with glass must be a duel pane tempered glass. A single pane glass will not provide the insulation you need and you could have condensation issues arise. Even with a thick single pane this can happen. Always choose a duel pane glass.
Other details for a wine cellar door have to also be considered. The bottom of the door is where most wine cellars have the most cold air loss. You can help to eliminate this by including an automatic door bottom for your door. Weather stripping also needs to be added all the way around the jamb to seal the edges. Additionally, your wine cellar doors must have proper jambs and casings in order to close and seal the cellar effectively. While planning your wine cellar design, do remember to plan for casings, hardware and hinges for the wine cellar doors. You may even want to add sidelights.

*Laminated veneer lumber (LVL) is an engineered wood product that uses multiple layers of thin wood assembled with adhesives. It offers several advantages over typical milled lumber: it is stronger, straighter, and more uniform. It is much less likely than conventional lumber to warp, twist, bow, or shrink due to its composite nature. It is made in a factory under controlled specifications.
