This does not necessarily mean that the building is a winery; for example, most houses in the USA that date back to 1950 or earlier have a cellar.  The usual terminology here is that a below-ground space that is dirt-floored, or is basically just an excavation, is called a cellar; one that has finished walls and floors, so that it can better be used for storage or as living space is generally called a basement.

Are you suggesting people will confuse most cellar doors to cellars as
a tourist attraction?

I spent a bit of time and effort trying to find something similar to
this concept in other countries, these places are heavily marketed as
tourism spots in Australia in the various wine regions.

I found various tasting rooms in various countries but as best I can
tell these differ again, but I would be more than happy to be pointed
to some better references.
