There are also slightly larger wine racks that have a table built into them and often include storage for wine glasses. These hold more bottles than the traditional tabletop variety and provide a beautiful piece of home décor. This style of wine rack is generally designed so you are able to stand or sit around it and enjoy wine with family and friends. If you are a more serious wine collector, these smaller racks will probably not be big enough for you. They are also not ideal for long-term storage since their presence in your dining room or kitchen does not allow for the same level of control over temperature, humidity and sunlight.
These would look great on your Christmas table, fitting right in with the festive season. You can even have your favorite Chardonnay dressed up in a suit? If you are someone really serious about your beverages then you cannot go past an electric thermometer for your favorite red. And of course your Champagne cannot be left out with a range of screw pull Champagne openers to choose from. Now if you really want to impress your guests then you cannot go past the many different collars that you can buy. These come in different materials that fit over the neck to prevent drips. Coasters are also very popular with specially designed ones that actually fit over the bottom of the bottles in very fancy patterns indeed.
Tabletop & Countertop Wine Racks: Another great option for the casual wine drinker is a tabletop rack. These racks generally hold fewer bottles than floor or wall-mounted racks. The casual collector can store a few bottles at once on their tabletop wine rack, making this style of storage perfect for people who live in apartments or smaller homes. If you can’t install a wine room or cellar, tabletop wine racks allow you to easily grab a bottle of wine and pop it in the refrigerator to chill when company comes over.
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.
