Wine collectors have different types of wine in all shapes and sizes.
Normally, smaller wine bottles are easier to store because you can always have wine racks to fit them neatly inside your wine cellar. For large-format wine bottles that do not fit in the standard wine racks you have, you may wonder what to do. Well, the following simple storage solutions will help.
Try easy-to-assemble wine cubes
Easy-to-assemble wine cubes are one of the most convenient choices when it comes to storing large-format wine bottles. What makes them even more fascinating is the fact that they are sold at a very affordable price. They are even sturdy enough to store several pieces of bottle without you having to worry about any breakage. You can actually buy such wine cubes and finish them off with any stain or paint that complements your home’s décor and colour. You can also expand the cube if there are more large-sized wine bottles to store.
Try a wall-mounted wine rack
Wall-mounted wine racks are great space savers in a wine cellar (or even in a bar in the corner of your home) that seem to be too small to accommodate the wine bottles that you are collecting. For those of you who only have a few of those over 1.5-litre bottles, this storage solution will be very much recommended. Some of these wine racks allow storage from the neck down to the body of the wine bottle. Just one thing to consider if you choose to use this storage solution: Make sure that you have paid attention to any weight restriction.
Try wine cabinets
Wine cabinets have been specially made to store wine bottles and make sure that the wine quality will not be affected regardless of the temperature outside it. They are actually like refrigerators made for your vino. The good thing about wine cabinets is they can store your fragile wine bottles without you worrying anymore about possible breakage created by vibration or any movement surrounding the cabinet. Yes, your large-sized bottles can fit in these cabinets thus lessening your concerns on how you can easily store them.
You can also have a customized wine rack
Customized wine racks are perfect for storing different bottles in various shapes and sizes. You can always fill one with all of your oversized bottles. Like the cube storage, customized wine racks may be finished off with the stain or paint that you want. You can also rely on such pieces if you want to store a number of big bottles in just one rack. You have the choice to install such rack on a horizontal or vertical position.
Add to the customized wine rack that you can get, you also can have a customized storage built in your wine cellar area. Some of these customizable storage solutions come in kits that you can easily assemble. However, if you do not trust your instinct when it comes to assembling such pieces, it will always be a good idea to ask a wine storage expert to do the job for you. The good thing about this storage solution is you can always mix and match components in the assembly to suit the size or height of the wine bottle you will store in it. You can devote one corner in the wine cellar to hold or your large-format wine bottles.
As you have seen, there are many ways by which you can store oversized wine bottles. It just requires some simple thought and creativity. A few tips from experts will also help you overcome the challenge of storing these extraordinarily large bottles. If you need help regarding wine racks, feel free to browse our pages for ideas.
