  • About

cellar, widely used word that is roughly the English counterpart to cave, cantina, and bodega in French, Italian, and Spanish respectively. It can therefore be applied to both wine shops and winemaking premises, but is here considered only in its domestic sense, as a collection of wine and the place in which it is stored.
