If you have a wine cellar at home with a beaten-earth or sandy floor, don’t hesitate to pour water on the floor from time to time (once a month) to maintain a certain level of humidity; and two or three times a year, pour a bottle of red wine (not too expensive) on the floor to preserve the atmosphere of wine.
 
Ideal humidity level: 75%
 
Ideal temperature: around 15°C/59°F
 

Don’t forget to place a hygrometer and a thermometer in your wine cellar, as well as several glasses for friends.
