Printable Wine Maps?

I'm looking for a series of printable wine maps that are both decorative and informative. Wine Folly is great but they have several different styles of map across regions. Let me know if you have any resources!

Has anyone visited South Africa? How was your experience?

I'm thinking of making a trip – 1/3 for weather, 1/3 for culture, and 1/3 for wine.

Have you visited? How is it?

Wine “cellar” in basement – good enough for medium term aging? – Athan Zafirov Wine Blog

Wine “cellar” in basement – good enough for medium term aging?

So I'm currently renting a house in somewhat exurban north-central Indiana. Apparently the house was built by the builder for himself as a second home and then he sold it off to the current owners.

There is a room in the finished basement which is really just an auxiliary storage closet, but I guess in order to jazz up the property to sell, the builder staged it as a "wine cellar", decorating it with fake craft-store grape leaves hanging from a piece of wooden lattice panel set on top of the shelving units.

I already put in temporary wine bottle shelving and have had a combo hygrometer/thermometer in there for the past several months – it usually hovers around 65-69 F and humidity around 50%. It almost never goes above 70, especially because I closed the vents for the central heat to the basement to save money. Today I measured it at 64F.

Is that good enough to store/age wine for at least 5 years? If not, is there anything I could do or install that wouldn't involve major construction to help improve the conditions? The room is accessed by a door but the door is not exactly sealed, a lot of air can get in under the door and a bit around the door jamb.

I can post photos if that would help anyone make a better assessment. It's about 35 sq. ft total area.
