Wine Storage – What Options Do You Have

Wine Storage – What Options Do You Have

Wine Notes: Go2 Winery

Wine storage is a critical component of the process of manufacturing and consuming wine. If you are a wine connoisseur, you would understand how important it is to store wine at the correct temperature, humidity, and under the required amount of light. Here is a look at some of the best wine storage options, based on which you can decide the one suitable for you.

Wine refrigerator and wine cabinet

For wine storage, climate control is the name of the game. No matter where you decide to store your wine bottles, one thing that you need to take into consideration is the climate of the area. There are two wine storage options, which are most commonly used.

  1. Wine cabinet – Put simply, it is a cabinet for storing wine. What makes it special is that you can store your wine bottles in it without worrying about the changing climate. Traditionally wine cellars were used for storing the bottles, as well as for long term aging, but wine cabinets provide better control of the temperature, humidity, and the amount of light reaching the bottles. This makes it the perfect place for storing your precious wines.


  1. Wine refrigerator – A wine refrigerator does not differ much from a wine cabinet, expect for one major point. A refrigerator does not provide proper humidity control settings for you to use. This makes it unsuitable for long term aging. However, for storage of wine bottles in the short term and for maintaining the temperature of the bottles, wine refrigerator is the perfect option.

Choosing between a wine refrigerator and a wine cabinet can be hard. If you are a true connoisseur, you will certainly like to go for a cabinet to keep the humidity control in your hand. For the casual drinker, the refrigerator does a good enough job. Whichever option you choose, remember to enjoy your wine!
