A Guide to Wine Racks

It is a cliché that wines get better with age. How a wine ages will depend on how the wine is stored. Wine racks are a simple way to store unopened wines for the short-term.

Never put the wine rack on top of the refrigerator. All wines should be stored someplace cool. Find a spot in your house that stays about the same cool temperature year-round. The basement, so long as it is consistently cool, makes a nice place to store your wines. You could also put the wine rack in an interior closet. These storage places are not glamorous, but they keep the wine’s taste. Also make sure the wine will not be vibrated, another reason not to keep it on the refrigerator. Don’t store the wine next to anything with a strong odor, which could overwhelm the wine’s flavor. Wine racks also keep the wine bottle horizontal, tipping the wine to the cork. Keeping the cork wet helps the wine keep.

Once you have a place to store your wine rack, you can have fun picking one out. Metal wine racks match any décor and there are hundreds from which to choose. Metal wine racks have a variety of styles. You can buy classical wine racks made from

wrought iron, or more contemporary wine racks made from chrome or steel. Metal wine racks can stand alone, form a table, or be hung. Metal wine racks can cost between $25 and several hundred dollars. Wooden wine racks are just as diverse as metal wine racks. Small wooden wine racks hold three bottles, large wine racks around 50. Wooden wine racks for sale can form a table, be a storage chest, stand alone, or be functional stackable boxes. Wooden wine racks cost between $40 and several hundred dollars. If you cannot afford a cellar and would like to expertly store wines, invest in a freestanding, temperature-controlled wine rack.

Look for different styles of wine racks online or at home stores. You can also build your own simple wine rack. Instructions are available online.
