Why You Should Have a Wine Cellar

If you don't own a wine cellar and you collect wine its time to reconsider. Wine collectors everywhere are learning that to preserve you must have control over the climate and the temperature of the wine. The only real way to do this is to have your very own wine cellar.

In the movies we are used to seeing a wine cellar in some dark damp under ground bunker. However to have and own a wine cellar doesn't have to be exactly that way anymore. Now we have options with our wine cellars and wine storage. Long ago the only way to keep wine at cool enough temperatures to preserve was to store it under ground away from the heat and sunlight. Today things have changed with wine storage greatly.

What purpose does a wine cellar serve you might ask. Well for one a wine cellar keeps the wine at whatever temperature you'd like to store it at. Keeping wine cool and at the right humidity can make your wine store and last years longer than not doing so. Another great thing about a wine cellar is that it can keep your collection organized and free of dust. Many wine cellars have a cabinet style build much like a stand alone closet. I would also suggest getting yourself a set of wine bottle hanging labels as well to help organize your collection. These simple hang around the head of the bottle and on it you list the type of wine and the vintage year.

You must figure how much room you want to dedicate to your wine collection. Do you want to dedicate a whole room or basement? If so you may consider custom built wine racks. Custom built wine racks are nice because you can decide how long or wide to have them built. The bad part about customized wine cellar racks is that they are very expensive. I prefer to go with wine cellar cabinets. They typically run in the low thousands but if you are a serious collector that can be pennies on the dollar saved. Some of your collection will one day be worth mid hundreds or more so sometimes spending a little to save a lot goes a long way. Cabinet style wine cellar stand tall and up right and can have solid doors of glass doors to see in. However make sure if you have glass doors it stays away from windows and out of the sunlight. Sunlight even the slightest amount can soil your collection; keep your collection as safe as possible.

If you do not have thousands to spend there are many options that you can find about anywhere that range in the low hundreds and can hold over 150 bottles. This is the best option for anyone who is just starting out a collection. Many times you can find a nice wine cellar with glass doors for well under $500 that holds many more bottles than your collection can amass for the first couple of years. The options are up to you just remember this hobby is what you put into it and without proper wine storage your collection won't last long.

Crisp but complex, the wine has tones of grassy melon and a wild flower bouquet which make it very attractive. A great wine that goes well with pasta dishes, seafood and the lighter meals we enjoy in the summer. Serve well chilled. Online delivery. GWPGW704 GWPGW704

Walkingman’s 2nd week in Australia. Hinchinbrook Island to Ayr, 5-26-2008 to 6-1, 147 miles, 17,508 Total World Walk Miles. Over a small pass only 1.5 miles long through the Great Dividing Range, just north of Ingham. Now I am in a much drier area with bush for Kangeroo and grazing for cattle. They still grow sugar cane, but they have to irrigate it with water from a series of dams on the Burdiken river. One night as I camped in the bush between the railroad tracks and a dirt road I was

With all of the emphasis being put on how overweight we, as a society are, more and more people are looking for ways to improve their nutritional intake. It might seem easy to figure out how to do this, but unfortunately, the grocery stores make it difficult to stay on track. As soon as you enter the store, you are presented with displays of fattening foods that somehow find a way into your grocery cart. By recognizing the types of foods that you should be eating, you can better steer clear of

“Come Monday, it’ll be all right. . .” June 16, 2008 by healingmagichands I made muffins for breakfast today. I experimented with the fruit and nut muffins from the King Arthur Flour cookbook and substituted a cup of oat meal for one of the cups of flour. Applesauce and almonds were the fruit and nuts, and they turned out splendidly. We had them with home made fig preserves. Yummy. I realized that I completely missed Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day this month. I was distracted from act
