Having recently read a number of articles on this topic, I’ve decied to create my own list of top tips on how to store wine at home. There are a number of key elements to consider when choosing a wine rack to store your favourtine fine wine. Hopefully you will find these key points useful in helping you decide.
There is much debate around this but top Sommeliers recommend wine is stored horizontally so that the cork will remain wet and not dry out. If the cork dries out, oxygen will get past it and spoil the wine. All my wine racks are core drilled in a horizontal fashion which allows the bottle to rest elegantly in the curved hole.
When placing the bottles, try to store them so you don’t have to move one to get to another bottle. You want to leave the bottles alone as much as possible. Vibrations can disturb sediments in the bottle, dirupting the ageing process. Slate wine racks are core drilled individually. There is no overlap and there’s an individual hole per bottle.
