Learning the types of wine storage solutions can help enhance and extend your wine collection.
The wooden wine rack in the dining room you bought 5 years ago is looking a bit worn. That refrigerator under the counter can’t hold enough bottles anymore. Constantly peeking into all those boxes in the closet has become tiresome.
Perhaps it’s time to elevate your wine storage game. Start by reading about the types of wine storage solutions.
For all wine lovers, there comes a time when their collection simply needs a dedicated home that is functional and doesn’t sacrifice design. For others, they are progressing as collectors and features such as climate control are necessary for proper aging. And for some, their enthusiasm has generated a desire for a walk-in cellar that is custom built to protect their growing collection and incorporates the latest design trends.
Wine Racks, Cabinets, and Cellars: What They Are and Why You Want Them
A Wine Rack (or a wine-centric display) strikes the perfect balance between high-end design and efficient storage. For others, they are progressing as collectors and features such as climate control are necessary for proper aging. And for some, their enthusiasm has generated a desire for a walk-in cellar that is custom built to protect their growing collection and incorporates the latest design trends.
A Wine Cabinet is a climate controlled cabinet or enclosure that will maintain consistent temperature and humidity levels for storing and aging wine. Thanks to advances in wine refrigeration, mechanical equipment is smaller and more efficient than ever. Wine cabinets now have modern profiles, the mechanical elements are less conspicuous if not completely concealed, and they can be customized inside and out to suit any design style. If you find yourself thinking more about the temperature of the wine you’re drinking or you want to start aging a couple of young vintages, invest in a wine cabinet for peace of mind.
A custom built Wine Cellar is where performance and design live in perfect harmony. Wine cellars are walk in rooms built from the inside out to preserve and display a wine collection. Design trends have pushed the envelope on building refrigerated rooms that are jaw-dropping: multiple stories, frameless glass walls, acrylic racking, hidden doors, and so much more. So be sure to work with wine cellar consultants, architects, interior designers and builders who understand what it takes to capture requirements for a functional space and bring them to life in ways that exceed your expectations. A well-executed wine cellar is the culmination of careful planning, technical know-how and best-in-class design elements… and will be the centerpiece of your entertaining space for years to come.
