Buying a Wine Rack

For anyone who drinks wine at home, a wine rack is essential. Back in the day, when wine bottles were all stoppered by corks, wine had to be rested on its side to minimise the chances of it becoming corked. While wine bottles now tend to have a screw-cap, it's generally accepted that the best way to store wine is still on its side. Which, of course, is where the wine rack comes in. Providing wine storage for any number of wine bottles, a wine rack can be both functional and stylish. So, with that in mind, what should buyers look for when buying one?

Comparing Wine Racks

One of the first things to think about before buying a wine rack is where it will be placed. Ideally, wine should be kept in a fairly cool, dark place, where the temperature doesn't increase or decrease too much, out of direct sunlight, in minimal humidity. After finding the perfect spot, measure the space available to find out how big the new wine rack can be. Wine lovers who tend to drink their wine fairly quickly, or who don't store that much wine at home, may not need to worry about buying overly large wine racks - but, for anyone who plans on buying and storing wine, size may be an issue.

At this point, it's worthwhile thinking about the number of bottles that will need to be stored. Some wine racks are limited to a certain number of bottles they can hold, while others can be added to and built-up over time. Think about the materials used to make the wine rack, and how durable it will be. And if it's important, also consider the style and design of the wine rack. Bear in mind that for some wine aficionados, a wine cabinet may be a better option, or alternatively, for white wine enthusiasts,wine fridgesandbar fridgescan provide the perfect place to chill the perfect bottle.
