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.

3 Reasons it Makes Sense to Get your Own Wine Cellar

3 Reasons it Makes Sense to Get your Own Wine Cellar

If you regularly drink wine with dinner, a wine cellar may be just what you need. As all oenophiles know, wine enriches life. Making an investment in a wine cellar is the perfect way to delve more deeply into your appreciation of wine. Providing a place to store your own wine supply has benefits that make sense for families of all sizes and tax brackets. The following are five of the top reasons to have your own custom wine cellar built.

1-Prevents Spoilage

The beauty of a custom wine cellar is that it creates the perfect atmosphere uniquely ideal for wine. The best wines improve with age, as long as they age in the correct environment. You more fully embrace everything that’s special about wine when you have your own wine racks and a wine cooling unit that maintains the right temperature. The humidity level is also an essential element for optimal wine conditions. Horizontal wine racks typically do the best job of allowing for the optimal aging process, which is gradual. This is largely because the wine keeps the cork swelled with a proper seal. It also ensures that sediment falls a distance away from the cork, so that the wine isn’t spoiled when pouring it. A wine lover saves money with proper storage, since wine is protected from spoiling.

2-Cuts Cost of Wine

Buying wine in bulk provides a significant savings over buying one wine bottle at a time. Many people get in on wine clubs, as a way of taking advantage of savings. A wine cellar is needed to begin buying in bulk. Otherwise, the wine would tend to spoil before you have a chance to enjoy it. You can even enjoy finer wines when purchased a case at a time, since you have more opportunities to buy at discounted prices.

3-Helps with Organization

When you have a custom wine cellar built, one of the pleasures of helping with design has to do with your personal style of organization. A wine cellar is the best place to manage and organize a wine collection. There are many different styles of wine racks and wine room features that can accommodate your needs for a wine cellar. For instance, you may want to include bins for wine storage, floor to ceiling wine racks in addition to wine racks for individual bottles. If you enjoy technology, there are many options for wine organization software that can help you keep track of your collection. Between keeping the wine in the proper environment and managing your collection, it will be more a pleasure than ever to make your selection of wine to be served before or during dinner or with dessert.

Many homeowners have mistakenly considered a wine cellar to be an out-of-reach luxury. Due to their popularity, wine cellars are not just for rich people anymore. If you are a wine lover who enjoys sensible investments, you can’t go wrong with a wine cellar.
