Kneeling butlers are a very unique way of presenting wines. It has a figure of a butler who is kneeling and the wine bottle is to be placed on his back. They are used quite often for small gatherings and a number of these can be combined for large gatherings. Corkscrews and bottle openers are essential items, without which one's wine cellar is incomplete. Decorative bottle corkers are used quite often on special occasions and parties and these enhance the feel of the occasion.
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 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.
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.
