73 gallons of wine? im not big on wine but if i found that mother load, id take a italian corker down their and go to town. come out with 360 aged bottles of wine. for me that'd be more then a lifetime supply. i dont think the rooms creepy at all. just bad lighting after 70 years.

If it was properly sulfited, the wine may be OK, but you will want to make sure you get some fresh meta in there right away so YOU don't oxidize it. I would use a thief to remove a sample to taste, and if it seems OK, then rack carefully without moving the carboy into a fresh carboy with 6 crushed Campden tablets in it to ensure you don't oxidize the wine. Probably best to rack 1" off the bottom so you don't stir up any old sediment.

If you can get your hands on a CO2 tank and wand, it also wouldn't hurt to purge the destination carboy with CO2 before racking into it.

Waiting with fingers crossed!
