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.
Tabletop & Countertop Wine Racks: Another great option for the casual wine drinker is a tabletop rack. These racks generally hold fewer bottles than floor or wall-mounted racks. The casual collector can store a few bottles at once on their tabletop wine rack, making this style of storage perfect for people who live in apartments or smaller homes. If you can’t install a wine room or cellar, tabletop wine racks allow you to easily grab a bottle of wine and pop it in the refrigerator to chill when company comes over.
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.
A stackable rack is a good option for casual drinkers who want to keep their options open since there is virtually no installation and very minimal building involved. However, these racks aren’t necessarily as beautiful or permanent as more expensive varieties, and some cheaper options might not be as stable. If you are a more serious wine collector, you might want to consider another wine storage option.
