Vibration is another factor to keep in mind. Wine needs to rest without distraction or constant rumblings in the environment. Keep wine away from any motors or heaters, and if you live near the metro, you may want to find another location to store your wine. Finally, as your wine cellar grows like wildflowers you can use two simple things to help organize your cellar. Plastic tabs containing the wine's name and vintage can be placed around the bottle's neck to help you determine which wine is in front of you without having to pull the bottle off the rack.
Proper aging of wine requires that you keep wine undisturbed as well as at a constant temperature. While wine refrigerators are built to handle these tasks for you, wine cellars will require some preparation. You will need to invest in an cellar cooling system for this purpose. While cellaring wine can be expensive, someone with a large wine collection and a desire to age wine will surely benefit from this investment.
This also means that you should measure the bottles you plan to keep. Keep in mind that the average 750 milliliter bottle of wine is approximately 3-4 inches wide and roughly 12 inches tall. However, wine bottles come in a variety of sizes, so consider any exceptions to this measurement that you purchase frequently or would like to store. So, if you had roughly 20 bottles of wine that you wanted to store, consider storing them in a rectangle: 4 bottles by 5 bottles. If you allow 5 square inches for each bottle (including the dividing woodmetal), that would give you an area of roughly 20 inches by 25 inches. You can use this as a guideline when designing your home wine rack.
If you have a strong love for wine, then you might consider some additions to your home that will nurture that love. A wine collector can’t be stuck with a basic three-by-three wine rack, while the casual wine drinker wouldn’t necessarily need an entire wine cellar. It is important to assess your particular needs when it comes to your wine storage method, especially if you plan on redesigning your home or spending a significant amount of money. Below, we outline three different methods of wine storage to help you determine what organizational method is right for you.
