Whether you consider yourself a wine connoisseur or a beginner trying to build a hobby, you probably understand that an important part of the wine buying to drinking process is how you store it in your home. The way that you save wine after you’ve brought it home from the store can be the difference between the wine that goes bad quickly and one that has a long shelf life and ages correctly. Your wine storage needs to allow the bottles to sit at the appropriate angle, allow you to turn them occasionally, and allow you to easily read the labels, all while reducing the amount of direct sunlight they receive. Metro wine shelving can help you store your wine. Let us choose the right wine rack to add to your home storage for your growing collection.
Stackable racks are a great solution in your wine cellar if you’re just starting your small collection, even if you plan to have a large collection of wine in the future. They are modular and allow you to customize the racks to fit your needs. Then, as your collection grows, you can add more units to the metro wine shelving to house more wine correctly. The major downside to them is that they aren’t as beautiful or permanent as other options. Also, make sure that the racks you buy are strong and steady before putting your wine on them.
These are a great option for the casual wine drinker or someone with a tiny collection. These racks tend to be smaller than floor or wall mounted racks, holding just a few bottles at a time. However, they are often visually very nice, since they are meant to be part of the room décor, sitting on the counter or the tabletop. Keep in mind that these racks are not suitable for aging your wine since the bottles will be subject to light, temperature variance, and humidity changes sitting in your kitchen or dining room.
A wine cabinet is a good in-between storage solution, ideal for the modest collector or someone who doesn’t have a spare room or basement to devote to wine storage. The cabinets can hold many more bottles than the countertop racks, sometimes dozens at a time, and they often also have storage for glasses and tools. They are enclosed, often with doors that block out the sunlight and humidity, allowing you to store bottles that need to be aged. They also tend to be very visually appealing so they can match your home décor in almost any room.
