I agree with Sam, as this is a case of form over function. It’s understandable that most of us don’t have the luxury of these grand wine rooms, but I too wince when I see wine stored in sunlight and up high. There’s no point showing off your expensive wine when it will turn to vinegar before you enjoy it. Proper storage conditions should always be the centre point when designing these things. So I would always suggest to keep it cool, and out of direct sunlight. It’s why the more artistic, under-the-stairs designs are great designs to start from.

I really like the idea of being able to see the label and not have to pull out various bottles to select the one I want, so hats off to Gui for the slanted shelf design, clever, practical storage.

Some very cool ideas there! We've been designing a lot of kitchens lately with a temperature controlled wine fridge built into the design - a great way to overcome the storage issues.
