Security is a crucial feature of wine cellar design, since the purpose of the space is to protect your wine collection. When it comes to wine, the top elements of security are achieved by providing an environment with the correct temperature, storage racks, etc. The security features discussed below also include the kind that keep unwanted guests from helping themselves to your wine collection, whether a thief or an uncle who partakes a bit too freely of O-be-joyful.
Your wine cellar door and the lock on it are the primary lines of defense against theft. The door also serves the dual purpose of protecting the unique environment that preserves wine. You can choose from a vast selection of fully customizable wine cellar doors. Materials include glass and the wood of your choice, along with the type of stain. Ornamental doors are available, as well. The doors should have a reliable lock and create an adequate seal that maintains the desired temperature and overall environment in the wine cellar. You can choose electronic locks or more traditional locks.
For more advanced monitoring of your wine cellar, you can have external sensors that activate video recordings of activity around your wine cellar or wine cabinet. Mobile features make it possible to check on your wine collection wherever you are.
Extra Layers of Security
Additional security inside your wine cellar can be achieved with a cabinet that locks. A cabinet can enhance wine cellar design while providing you with an extra measure of security for your finest, most expensive wines. Locksets should be requested when ordering wine cabinets.
You can also choose to have wine rack lockers installed above the wine racks, so that the most valuable vintages have additional security.
The environmental conditions in a wine cellar provide the best protection for the investment you’ve made in your wine collection. Why bother with locks if the wine isn’t kept in optimal conditions? Wine needs to be protected from sunlight and UV rays caused by certain types of lighting. The temperature range is very specific for wine, and continuous fluctuations in temperature must be eliminated. Wine cellar cooling units from top manufacturers
Systems are available that will send you an alert if the temperature in the wine cellar moves out of the set range.

Any true wine lover will set up proper wine storage space, creating the option to buy in bulk and take advantage of other opportunities to cut the cost of wine purchases.

The following are some things you may not know about wine rack kits.
1-Many Modules can be Cut to a Custom Fit

A fundamental of wine storage is placing wine on horizontal racks, to protect the cork. (Photo: Wine Racks from Rosehill Wine Cellars)
Wine storage is widely known to be best in cellar-like conditions, but far fewer wine drinkers understand the importance of the cork. The idea behind creating a wine cellar is to provide the perfect environment for wine to be stored so that it ages properly. For storage of a year or more, natural cork in a wine bottle is a crucial component in the process of wine maturation. The fact that most wine racks are built to store wine horizontally has to do with the cork, but that’s not all. The cork takes the spotlight in wine cellars in several ways.
Horizontal wine racks
For a cork to perform the way it is meant to, it must stay wet by maintaining contact with the wine. Horizontal wine racks are ideal because they keep the cork wet. If the cork does not stay wet, the result will be that the cork dries out, shrinks, and allows oxygen to get to the wine. This results in oxidation. Oxidized wine turns into vinegar, totally spoiling the anticipated flavor and enjoyment of the wine.
Constant Wine Storage Temperature
An essential part of wine storage is maintaining a constant temperature that rarely fluctuates. When there are swings in temperature, the wine will continuously expand and contract, which ultimately damages the cork’s integrity. As the cork is pulled in and out by the effects of changing temperatures, eventually, wine can seep along the outer edge of the cork, between the bottle neck and the cork. This allows air in, which is another way wine becomes oxidized. Due to the importance of maintaining a constant temperature, wine cellars are best built by professionals who understand how to properly insulate a wine cellar and how to choose a wine cellar cooling unit of the correct size for the space.
Another fundamental aspect of proper wine storage is keeping the environment clean and free of foodstuffs and other items that introduce strong smells. Odors can permeate corks and contaminate the wine. Don’t store bleach or foods such as cheeses in your wine cellar, since they can ruin the wine through the cork. If mice and insects are drawn to the cellar because of the presence of food, they also tend to chew corks and gnaw on wine labels.
Experts in Wine Storage
The professional builders at Rosehill Wine Cellars know all the details of proper wine storage, including the significance of wine corks. There is an undeniable connection between wine storage and corks, just as proper wine storage is linked to enjoying the taste of fine bottles of wine.
Great wine accessories are perfect additions to any party, and Rosehill Wine Cellars has a wonderful array of wine-related accoutrements to choose from. Wine bottle stoppers and pourers, drip rings, and wine thermometers are just a few. Sharing love of wine with fellow oenophiles is entertaining and can be memorable for everyone. The following are among the many wine accessories available at Rosehill.
1 – Wine Glass Cleaning Instruments
Wine glasses are essential components of serving and enjoying wine. They aren’t dishwasher-friendly, however, in that they often don’t fit properly. Wine lovers clean wine glasses with care. Part of the reason is to protect the investment made in the wine. For the discerning wine lover, soap can negatively impact the aroma and taste of wine. The following are the best ways to clean wine glasses:
- Thoroughly rinse wine glasses with hot water
- Use a miniscule drop of very mild detergent and rinse with hot water
- Gently clean with washing soda, such as baking soda
The best way to dry wine glasses is to air-dry them upside down. Rosehill Wine Cellars offers a Wine Glass Rack Tree that holds up to 12 wine glasses as well as other glass cleaning wine accessories.
2 – Wine Pouring for Large Format Bottles
VCanter wine pouring systems are available from Rosehill Wine Cellars. Various models are designed for particular large format wine bottles. The Methuselah, for example, holds the equivalent of eight standard wine bottles. There is also a Vcanter wine pouring system for the Goliath, a bottle of wine with contents equal to 36 regular wine bottles. These unique decanting cradles for large format wine bottles are made in Switzerland. Custom colour options include silver, copper, and 24k gold plating. Custom engraving is available, as well.
3 – Breathable Wine Glasses
Decanting of wine is accomplished in a variety of ways, such as in beautiful crystal decanters. One very chic approach to decanting is to serve wine glasses that have “Breathable Glass”. Comparison tests show that the impact of using breathable wine glasses is dramatic when drinking high-quality wines. For example, young white wines and red wines are typically best with a minimum of 30 minutes of aeration before drinking. With the “Breathable Glass”, you can drink the same wine immediately and fully enjoy the wine’s best characteristics. Rosehill Wine Cellars offers a range of Breathable / Sensis Plus crystal stemware.
4 – Wrap Wine Thermometer
Rosehill offers a Trudeau stainless steel Wrap Wine Thermometer with satin finish that can ensure wine is served at the perfect temperature. An LCD strip on the thermometer measures the temperature of the wine. Liquid crystal thermochromic ink changes to different colours at different temperatures. Around the perimeter, there is a list of various wines and their ideal serving temperatures. The thermometer is simple to use. When the bar lights up to the level you’re looking for, it’s time to serve the wine.
