If you love wine, then you know a good wine is made better based on how you store it. There are several ways you can store wine to help lengthen its shelf life and help it age in optimal conditions. You can purchase wine refrigerators and coolers to chill your wine and keep it in the short term, but if you want to store a larger amount of wine for longer (and cheaper), wine racks are your best option. There are several ways proper storage helps wine mature well over the months and years. Racks and cellars help by:
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.
There are also types of smaller wall-mounted racks that provide you with wall décor in any room in your home. When you use wall-mounted racks in your kitchen or dining room, you will still run into problems with light and temperature control, so be sure you aren’t using these racks for the sole purpose of aging. Another draw-back of wall-mounted racks is the installation and hardware. You have to be comfortable putting nails, screws and other hardware into your walls. You will also find it more difficult to take your racks with you if you ever choose to move to a new home.
The construction of a wine cabinet is often the most overlooked aspect in building a good wine collection, though it is of great importance. The purpose of a wine cabinet is simply to prevent fine wines from spoiling due to environment fluctuations resulting due to temperature, sunlight and vibrations. Storing fine wine allows it to develop its full flavor over the years, and as a result, the value of the wine increases. Wine cabinets can be separate box-like structures or elaborate pieces of furniture that complement the décor and ambience of any room in your house.
