Traditional designation for a wine cellar or a cellar compartment for the storage of exquisite, valuable wines and wine rarities from old special vintages. Such wines are also known as treasure chamber wines or Kreszenzen, which, however, has no meaning in wine law. The Cabinet Cellar of the famous Eberbach Monastery in the Rheingau and the designation Cabinet for special wine qualities had a similar meaning. See also regarding special wine designations under special wines.
