Collecting wines is a passion for many people. The personal collection, however, is the result of many years of hard work and knowledge in the field of wine production and storage.
A home basement is a necessary requirement for storing a collection of wines. The place must be chosen and equipped according to the main wine storage conditions – not too much light, warmth, moisture or vibrations. A room with noise and warmth isolation is a suitable crib for the wine. A dry and airy place will prevent mould formation. The ideal temperature is 13-15 degrees and, if the collection is unique, placing an air conditioner to maintain this temperature would be worth it.

The bottles should be placed on special wooden lines of shelves. It’s best these shelves be per order. The bottles must be placed horizontally, so that the liquid inside would always be contact with the cork. The label should face upwards, so that it would be easier to read. It would be good to group the bottles in sections, in terms of the wine sort, year of production and wine house, which has produced them, every wine collection is gathered slowly, because the wine constantly evolves and it’s a pleasure to watch the changes.

Trying a sample every now and then gives you the idea of how the taste, aroma and astringency vary. The cellar can also serve the purpose of an enoteca, as it corresponds to all the necessary conditions. In that case, no other possessions and foods should be stored there. Strong scents don’t have a good effect on wine.
Wine cellar in the kitchen
There are systems for storing wine, designed like chests of drawers, which can be built in the kitchen. They are convenient and practical, as they have moisture and temperature regulators. Wine collections need a lot of precision and patience, so that a good result would come out in the end, which the collector and his family and friends alike can enjoy.
