Wine Cabinet: If you are a modest collector or someone who is limited on space, a great wine storage option for you is a wine cabinet. These cabinets can hold a dozen or more bottles of wine and often have spaces for wine glasses and other accessories. You can place these cabinets in any room in the house, and because they have doors, they provide for better light and climate control than a table-top or novelty wall-mounted rack. These cabinets will probably not be large enough if you have an extensive collection, but they are a great way for you to store your wine safely if you are just beginning your wine collection.
If you like to store bottles at home then it is a good idea to convert your basement area or some spare room inside your home into a well placed cellar. There are certain requirements for a cellar for wines. The cellar area has to be humid, cold and dark. Wines need to be stored at specific temperatures and hence proper care should be taken about the temperature conditions in order not to ruin the expensive bottles.
Consider the space you have to work with, the size and weight of the unit and make sure to add the additional weight for the wine which averages about 3 pounds per bottle. When building a new home the best time to think or install a wine cellar would be when the home is being built, make sure the specs include such things as a cooling system, shelving and storage, if you live in an existing house find a space and make sure you plan it out well. The degree and the speed of the temperature change are critical to successfully storing and aging wine. Expertise lies in getting the temperature just right. Temperature is at the top of the list for the reason that it is the single most important factor to consider when planning or installing your own wine cellar.
Wine decanters are also great wine accessories for your cellar. A decanter will aerate your bottle of wine before it is drunk. Placing a decanter in the cell is a good decision if your wine is served directly from your installed cellar. If you know you are going to open a bottle then you can have it placed in the decanter and it can be brought up to your guests ready to be uncorked and drunk.
