How to Preserve a Wine Collection

How to Preserve a Wine CollectionStoring wine with cooling units is easy. This is also something you should do to preserve your wine collection. Many times people do not realize the importance of proper wine storage and how it is done. There is no substitute for wine storage with proper wine temperature and the only way this can be achieved is through a wine cellar or wine room with a cooling unit.

The easiest and quickest method for wine storage and wine cooling is to buy a wine cellar. Wine cellars can be found in stores or even online at affordable prices. A wine cellar offers not only a place to store as many bottles of wine as capacity will hold but also a place to keep your wine cool and away from the sunlight. These units can be built in any room in the house it does not have to be underground just as long as it stays out of the sun. Once you’ve picked where you want the wine cellar you simply just construct it or just set it up. Most wine cellar anymore looks more like large wine cabinets which I tend to favor. This particular kind can hold anywhere between 300-5000 bottles whichever size you are looking for. Typically they just snap and seal together with ease or even pre-built wine cellars can be purchased but expect a higher shipping price the larger the unit.

Another way to store and preserve wine is by use of a cooling unit. Cooling units are easy to install into any room and with little effort and affordable. Think of them as a small air conditioner for wine as they do look similar in structure. You can install a wine cooling unit into a wine cellar or into a wine room and it can be self-done without spending a fortune on hiring someone. I prefer smaller wine rooms over the massive sprawl style of wine basement rooms but whichever you prefer there is a cooling unit that fits your size needs. Cooling units can cool 75 cubic ft. to 3000 cubic ft. and higher so as you can see whatever size you need to cool can be done.

So either uses a cooling unit or a wine cellar or the combination of the 2 to achieve the perfect temperature and storage for your wine collection. It adds life to your wine and helps you to store any amount for years to come. However, if you collect wine do not overlook this storage option your collection simply will not last long without it.
