Have you figured out how much wine you are going to lift. At about 2.8 pounds per liter how many bottles will it contain. Knowing the final weight will help in the design.
Here is a UTube on a TV cabinet lift that might help. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBL6v5sdcvo
I see there are a number of cable lift systems on the internet that might be adapted to your project.

Also aside of the physical features of this project I have to point out that wine does not keep well in places where the temperature varies, as in a home setting. If you intend to store a lot of wine over a long period you need a controlled atmosphere with a constant temperature. Optimally around 50 -55 degrees; cooler slows the aging process and warmer speeds it up,
