Now that you have an idea of the quantity of wine to store, and the size of your space, it is time to start browsing. If you have a small amount to store and no floor space, a hanging wine rack would work best. You can find hanging racks made of wood or metal. Some may have shelves above for storage, or may simply hold bottles. They come in designs ranging from vintage to traditional to modern. If you have a small amount of wine and are looking for something more traditional, try a wine holder that stands. Some are made just to hold wine, or some have table tops like a small end table. You may also look into caddies that allow enough space for pouring drinks on the top surface and storage below.
There are many different kinds of wine cellars, there are case storages, triangular shelves, curved corners, half weights and many others. The advantage of having a wine cellar is that you don't have to go out and get a bottle of wine every time you are ready to sit down and eat, or want to enjoy a glass. Some of the popular wine cellar accessories are metal racking, kneeling butlers, wine chillers, wine coolers, decorative bottle corkers, corkscrews, wine tags, bottle openers, and wine markers. The great thing about wine cellars is that you can sit back and enjoy a bottle of wine that you chose from you wine cellar. Bottles should be stored on their side so that the cork remains moist and they should also not be exposed to vibration or temperature change.
They can also be built as part of the cabinets in the kitchen or any other room. Built-in wine storage with the temperature and humidity controlled is among the fastest growing trends in wine collecting today. Wine cabinets can serve many a purpose, ranging from wine displays and wine storage to serving even as a wine cellar with proper humidity, temperature and light control required for long-term storage and maturation. The most well-designed and attractive wine cabinets will combine many different features such as a storage compartment with scalloped or circular racks, stemware racks, accessory drawers or compartments and a serving top.
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.
