I gots a new toy.
... its empty
Storing wine in the hall closet is fine all winter, but it gets rather warm in the summer. I sometimes find myself holding back on a wine I really like because I don't know how long it will hold.
First world problem solved.
Edit: that screaming red wine on the top shelf is cranberry. My daughter loves it, but I find it too tart/acidic for strait up drinking. It does, however, apparently make a very good mulled wine. I'll let you know Sunday.
I have complete certainty you will fill it in due time.
We started with plain wood racking from CanTire. Nice little pine set that held 15 bottles. We then added a second one to increase our holdings to 30 bottles.
We never seemed to have enough storage.
Then we moved and built a cellar holding over 700 (and cost about the same as buying a 300 bottle specialty wine cooler).
I will never fill that one!
The temperature control is by far the largest variable to want to maintain consistently to ensure you keep and/or age your wines with less guessing as to whether they are turning to vinegar or have cork failures with seasonally fluctuating storage conditions.
