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.
Wine Racks and Case Storage: Avoid fluorescent illumination which ruins wine. Standard lighting is the regulation required moisture proof bulkhead lighting using normal LED lamps. Adequate lighting helps to locate bottles. Some form of racking and shelving is needed. The choice is very personal, and depends on whether it is a showcase type or a working cellar. There are designer built racks of hard wood which will provide an impressive display but are very expensive. The alternative is a mix of bins, rectangular, square or diamond shaped (recommended), and single bottle racks, with additional below counter level shelves for unbroken casesboxes.
Wine Cellar: Wine cellars are expensive investments, but they are absolutely necessary for the wine aficionados among us. Wine cellars are a construction that can really allow for you to explore your creative freedom. Wine cellars can be in your house or in your backyard, underground or above ground, built-in or stand-alone. There are some exceptionally creative and compact wine cellars popping up all over the place these days, so don’t think that a lack of space will prevent you from realizing your desire for a home wine cellar.
Cooling Systems: If environmental cooling systems are required Winecave can assist in the application. There are two types of units used to control temperature and humidity in a wine cellar. One is a self contained "through the wall" system, which can handle cellar space up to 1500 cubic feet. The other is a "split system", which is comprised of a condenser located outside the cellar, and an evaporator and thermostat located inside the cellar. For large cellars there are Split Systems that require commercial refrigeration installation.
