I’m honored and humbled to be profiled in Wine Spectator for what I love and for what I do for a living. I enjoy building wine cellars for others who share my passion. Every collection is unique and every wine cellar we build is one of a kind.

Turning passion into a profession is something many entrepreneurs only dream about. Jay Rosen is living that dream and the wine collector and wine cellar builder is currently featured in Wine Spectator magazine.
Wine Spectator chronicles Rosen’s love of wine and how the necessity of creating storage space for his own growing “treasure trove” steered the builder from renovating houses to designing and building custom residential wine cellars for others. Business is booming for Rosen and Washington Valley Cellars, fueled in large part by America’s growing thirst for wine. Since establishing Washington Valley Cellars, Rosen and his team have built hundreds of one-of-kind cellars and wine storage areas for oenophiles in New Jersey, the tri-state area, and throughout the United States.
“I’m honored and humbled to be profiled in Wine Spectator for what I love and for what I do for a living,” said Rosen. “I enjoy building wine cellars for others who share my passion. Every collection is unique and every wine cellar we build is one of a kind.”
The article,In Magnum, delves into Rosen’s early wine-drinking college days, how his tastes have evolved over the years, and what he’s collecting now. The article spotlights Rosen’s personal cellar, a 4,000-bottle wine loft built adjacent to his dining room for easy and elegant entertaining. “Framing the space are limestone floors and a plaster-finished barrel ceiling. The wine racks are horizontal rather than vertical—a feature that’s become a Washington Valley signature,” the article stated. Rosen’s additional 1,500 bottles are stored in a “makeshift cave” in the basement, the first wine cellar he constructed and the inspiration for his business.
Wine Spectator also explores Rosen’s fondness for magnums and oversized bottles which he describes as statement-making design elements for any cellar. “Large-format bottles are great for entertaining and they can be a great showpieces in a wine cellar,” explains Rosen. Every year he hosts a Big Bottle Extravaganza in which friends, many of whose wine cellars he has built, each bring a 3-liter bottle or larger to share at the party.
