Wine Racks - A Guide To Home Wine Storage

Home wine racks are specially designed for storing bottles of wines in a horizontal position, to help preserve the quality of the wine. Storing your bottles in a wine rack is a great way to prevent the corks from drying out. If this happens, the cork can shrink and let air in, resulting in oxidization, which will spoil the taste. Wine storage racks usually have separate compartments for holding individual bottles, allowing gaps between each one to allow air to circulate. Ideally, wines should be kept at a consistent temperature of around 55 degrees farenheit, with a relative humidity of 70%, away from light.

If your wine collection is growing rapidly and you don't have a wine cellar, then there is a huge choice of wine racking that's designed for home use. If you'd like to keep a few everyday bottles within easy reach, then wall mounted wine racks offer a solution. This type of rack is hung on the wall, which saves space, and allows you to always have a couple of bottles on display. Often, these racks come with built-in stemware holders, so you can conveniently keep your glasses in the same place. Wall wine racks are generally pretty cheap to buy, at around $40-$50.

Other types of rack include compact designs to fit on a counter top, or stackable towers to place on the floor, whose capacity can grow to meet your storage needs. Wooden wine racks are very popular, made from all sorts of wood, including pine, oak or mahogany. For a more contemporary look, a metal wine rack can be an attractive feature in itself, made from ornately crafted iron, stainless steel, chrome or aluminum. Whatever the style of your d?cor, there's sure to be a wine rack design that fits in perfectly and provides you with a functional way to organize your wine collection.

Whether you're after a DIY self-assembly kit, or a custom wine rack, online stores are full of all kinds of wine racks to suit your budget and your wine storage requirements.

Louis Affre Bourgogne Haute Cotes de Nuits Futs de Chene

The wines of Dufouleur in Nuits St. Georges are some of the most consistent in Burgundy's Cote D'Or. We have been offering the firm's "Louis Affre" label for several years, and this recent addition is another admirable French Chardonnay from their portfolio of fine wines. We found this "futs de chene" dry white wine to have oak flavors that have been well integrated with the ripe fruit, and not domineering. This is a well rounded and deeply flavored Chardonnay from the upper vineyards of the Cotes de Nuits which can hold its own from fine wines from Chassagne or Meursault. Great gift! BHCN02 BHCN02

Random notes: Jet-lag, London mini-cab, English trains

Random notes: Jet-lag, London mini-cab, English trains Posted by Joyce Hor-Chung Lau in Practical, Hong Kong, London, General 4 Comments I’ve written before on jet-lag, but another cause of it just occurred to me: The idiocy of airlines. I just finished brunch on a Cathay flight when the hostess started turning off lights and asking everyone to close their windows. Time to sleep! Never mind that it was noon in Hong Kong, where I’d just left, and 5 a.m. in London, where I’d be arriving – no

Some 284 products with the Fair Trade Certified designation have been launched compared to 130 in 2007, and as few as 17 in 2003, according to a September report by Mintel
