So, we recently had a great trip to Napa Valley and the gorgeous wine country. We now have a bit more wine than we have room for but it's always nice to have a bit of a selection handy. We have a built-in wine rack in our kitchen island and a wine cabinet in our dining room. I was recently given an article about the popularity of wine and creative storage areas by my husband. It turns out we are doing a TERRIBLE job at storing our precious wine collection. We house some inexpensive bottles in the $5 range and up to $35 with many in between. According to this article that was in the Dallas Morning News, you should NEVER store your wine in the kitchen because of the inconsistent tempuratures. Wines should be kept at a tempurature of 50-55 degrees and in relatively dark rooms. Failure #2. Much like beer can become "skunky", the same can happen to wine. Many builders are using the storage space underneath the closet as a wine closet. Deck it out and slap a rustic iron gate and *boom*, you've got a great storage space for your vino. Now if I can only convince my hubby that we really, really need a wine refrigerator!
