The following are some things you may not know about wine rack kits.

1-Many Modules can be Cut to a Custom Fit

Kits can be adaptable to your wine storage needs. Some modules can be easily cut to allow for customization. Many Premier Cru wood wine rack kits, for instance, offer construction of the highest quality plus the option to customize.

Wine Collectors acquire odd-sized bottles and require appropriate shelving

Standard wine racks hold standard sized wine bottles (750 ml), and they make no considerations for large format wine bottles that are now so popular with wine lovers.  Cellar designers have to make their own remedies. Modern wine cellars include wine racks that accommodate larger bottles because they are excellent investments.  A magnum bottle equals two standard bottles.  The wine stored in a Magnum or larger tastes better and has more value. Wine bottles can be massive, holding an amount equal to 40 standard wine bottles.

Why are big bottles becoming more popular?  Large formats tend to be consumed at large gatherings and the bottle can become a memento signaling the communal enjoyment of wine that has aged in a large format wine bottle. Fashion large wine bottles into gorgeous display pieces, once the wine has all been poured. It’s not a problem to store large wine bottles because Rosehill Wine Cellars has a variety of racks for that very purpose. But what about the challenge of serving wine from a huge bottle? Rosehill has the solution for pouring from large format bottles, as well.
