Mastering Your Wine Cellar
October 25, 2015
Do you have big wine cellar dreams? If so, the #1 thing you can do right now is to simply get started on them. You don’t need to launch into a full-blown wine cellar project. It’s obvious enough that a formal wine cellar project will cost you, even if it will be a “reasonable” (and by all account justifiable) expense.
There’s also the problem with space since of course, not all of us may have it readily available. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get started somewhere. You owe it to your burgeoning collection and to yourself to create the right kind of storage space.
Here are some tips…
Keep Your Wine Safe
How do you actually get started on your personal wine storage set-up? First off, it’s important to keep in mind that you can build a space for your bottles anywhere in your home. Those unwanted cubbies and corners, areas under the stairs, unused cupboards and closets, and even empty stretches of walls in your house can actually be transformed into wonderful “starter wine cellars.” The main point is to keep the bottles safe and secure. Storing them on their sides will keep your cork fromdrying out and also saves space.
Second, there are tons of wine racking options that will allow you to outfit these spaces. One very good example would be wine rack kits. They are the more affordable alternative to custom racking and come in beautiful wood or metal options. But because they are designed with flexible configurations, they can be easily combined by racking and stacking them with other elements. So basically, you can come up with lots of unique arrangements that would suit the space you have in your home and the style you want!
Small wine racks are another great racking option to consider. They have been recently dominating residential wine cellar projects since they are so space-efficient, you can even mix and match them up with your furniture. We’ve seen some pretty awesome examples of these racks being utilized in the kitchen, living spaces, mounted on walls, tucked into cabinets, and even made into window seats. Creating a beautiful wine tasting station in your dining room has also been quite the new trend.
You probably know by now that it’s important to keep wines in a cool place. If you had the extra funds, creating an insulated wine room with a cooling unit to keep them around 55 degrees farenheight would be ideal if you are getting into cellaring wines and storing it for a multitude of years. If you plan on drinking those bottles a few years within their release date, keeping them under 70 degrees should be fine. And keep them out of the sunlight!
Cellars are meant to grow, so there is no harm in starting small and no need to wait for the “right time” and the “right space.”
