Perfect wine storage - at least for my needs
on November 11, 2009
For about a year I had been storing wine in a linen closet with the bottles lying on top of one another. A few near-miss accidents had occurred, with wine bottles rolling loose on the shelf and the awkwardness of finding that the desired bottle was (inevitably) on the bottom made it clear this was a poor idea. The gift of a case and a half of bottles finally convinced me I needed better storage. My horizontal space was adequate, while vertical space was somewhat limited. The fact that the storage was behind doors eliminated the need for "pretty" shelves, and the pricing of these was very reasonable (particularly with a special running). A lot of much more expensive shelves with far less capacity are available, and the storage units are very sturdy. Although they are defined as 6-bottle containers, the uppermost container has room for three more bottles on top. Some of the thicker sparkling wine bottles do not fit in the container itself but they do store on the top.
