With the increasing popularity and interest in food and wine pairings, the invention of the Wine fridge has made wine collecting an increasingly popular pastime for many people.
More and more people are becoming novice connoisseurs as they become passionate about the hypnotic sparkle of some wines such as champagne, or seeing wine as a good investment, or are fascinated with the aging art form that transforms a young vibrant wine into a mature classic for you to enjoy as it ages.
Nevertheless, in wine collecting, no matter what your motive is, the crucial aspect to consider is the storage of your collection, preserving your investment, no matter what the value, so that it will improve.
However, not every house has room for a wine cellar and only a few have adequate storage facilities. The right conditions are essential for keeping your wine stored properly. Fortunately, even though you only have a small area in your home, you can still continue with wine collecting just by managing your space.
Here are some tips on how to manage a small space as wine storage:
1. Go for those Little Wine Chiller Fridges
These space-saving and energy-saving appliances are an ideal means to store a collection of whites, or even reds, of which some experts recommend cooling. With newer vintages and greater international wine experimentation, a fair number of red and rose varieties are found to benefit from cooling.
2. Have a Vertical Wine Rack
Aside from saving you space, these vertical wine racks are not only a good way to keep the cork from cracking and ultimately from spoiling, but these are also an elegant way to display and store your bottles of wine. Wine racks can be designed to fit your limited space, with a choice of a variety of wood and stain options to prettify them. Be sure to keep them out of direct sunlight and at a constant temperature.
3. Hanging Metal Wine Racks
These is also another elegant way and an interesting conversation piece to display and store your wines as these have interesting spiral features, where the wine bottle is really supported by just a few small appendages of the hanging rack, suspended above the ground. Be sure to keep them out of direct sunlight and at a constant temperature.
4. Maximize Basement Storage
Be creative. Utilize and make the most of the space you have. You can use vertical wine racks for your cellar instead of those horizontal ones.
5. Use Wine Credenzas
A long, low cabinet that is usually displayed in the dining room, aside from storing your wines, it can show off your collection in both a practical and beautiful way. These can perform double duty, as wine storage and the top as a sideboard for serving food, as a bar area, or as a place to display your fine china or other kitchenware.
6. Use of Small Wine Cabinets
Coming in a variety of sizes, wine cabinets are a great way to help keep your wines from being adversely affected by light, vibrations and humidity fluctuations. The cabinets are equipped with high-tech humidity and temperature controls designed for wine storage.
