Why you should choose a horizontal wine rack
When it comes to choosing a wine rack, wine professionals will always opt for a rack that stores wine bottles horizontally. This isn’t just about how they look; it also helps to improve the taste of the wine. Horizontal racks keep the cork moist, as well as keeping unwanted air from gaining access and making contact with the wine. The sediment will also fall to the side of the bottle, and it can then be carefully avoided when it comes to pouring.
Stand-alone or as part of your kitchen?
Wine racks come in a wide range of sizes, colours and materials, with wood and metal being the most popular choices. A wine rack can be incorporated into a larger piece of furniture, perhaps a kitchen unit or a living room sideboard, or they can stand alone.
The size you need will depend on how much wine you like to store. If you like to have a ready supply of great wine at hand for every occasion, then you might need a larger wine rack. If space is at a premium, a smaller countertop wine rack can contain a few bottles that you can top up as and when you want to.
Whatever space you have available, you should be able to find a wine rack that meets your requirements.
What should you consider when choosing a wine rack?
Before you decide which wine rack to purchase, you might want to ask the following questions:
● How many bottles do I want to store?
● Where can I fit the rack? Will it go in my kitchen or be free-standing?
● What size of bottles would I like it to store?
What’s the best material for a wine rack?
Wine racks come in any number of materials, with wood and metal being the most popular choice. Both have their distinct advantages. Wooden wine racks have a classic look and warm appeal that looks great in a wide variety of settings. Metal wine racks can be more convenient and easier to maintain. They also look good in homes with contemporary decor.
