For those who love and collect wine, wine storage furniture offers the perfect vehicle to display their collections. And no one would want to show off their prize bottles in an unappealing manner, any more than they would wand to frame a prize painting in a faux wood frame. A well-made and intricately designed piece of wine storage furniture will give a collection of fine wines the setting they deserve, and add a distinctly elegant accent to the wine collector’s home.
Wine storage furniture is available to meet any storage needs from a handful of bottles to an entire wine cellar; the choice of furniture is strictly a matter of need and taste. But all wine storage furniture must be constructed to preserve the contents of the bottles it holds; improperly stored wine will soon lose its taste, aroma, and color. Because some rare wines are almost irreplaceable, the price of replacing them when they have deteriorated can be in the thousands.
Where To Find Wine Storage Furniture
Wine storage furniture is not difficult to find, as inexpensive units are sold at many chain department, home furnishings, and kitchen ware stores. They are also readily available on the Internet; a single search, in fact, will give more direct hits on sites selling wine storage furniture than one could possibly research without going through several cases of wine.
Custom Wine Storage Furniture
Those with the monetary resources can even find a wood worker to build a piece of wine storage furniture to meet their specific needs. For those with a considerable amount of money tied in their wine collections, a custom piece of wine storage furniture is undoubtedly the best solution; a professional will be able to build it to look as if it were an integral part of you home, and to make sure it has all the proper light and temperature control systems.
Some larger wine storage furniture units resemble book cases, with rows of bottle tunnels instead of shelves. These units are very attractive, but must be constructed in a cool, dark part of the home.
Information On The Correct Wine Storage Temperature
Most people do not know at what temperature their wines should be sorted, but you can always ask before you purchase at your next tasting, or simply e-mail the winery which produced the vintage. Wine growers want, more than anything else, for their wines to be served to their best advantage, and will be happy to give you advice on their proper storage.
