Vintage Wine For Your Reading Pleasure

Wine Racks?Designed With Purpose

You can tell immediately if the owner of a liquor store truly knows their trade or simply wants to make a buck by going over to their wine display. If bottles of wine are simply displayed upon shelves in the upright position, then leave the store and go to another that actually cares about their customers because this store clear does not. Classic wine racks are designed and constructed in a specific manner and for very good reason and if a liquor store or wine retailers does not understand this then they are selling their wares with little to no regard for their more sophisticated customers.

Classic wine racks are indeed designed with purpose and you will find them in any respectable restaurant, retailer, or home. Perhaps the most important reason why racks are used for wine storage is because they store the bottles horizontally. When you store a bottle vertically for long periods of time, the flavor is altered because sediments settle to the bottom. If you are a novice, you may not be able to notice the difference in texture that comes from failing to store bottles in classic wine racks. However, if you enjoy the subtle sophistication that comes with consuming a fine wine, you will be able to tell that the flavor is unevenly distributed?particularly when you start reaching the bottom.

Of course, wine is typically shipped upright in cases but this is precisely why it should not be consumed until it has had a chance to be chilled at proper temperature and placed in a wine rack for at least a day or two. Again, these are subtle distinctions but for those of us who truly enjoy a glass of wine, the variations in flavor and texture are noticeable and can literally ruin an otherwise pleasant experience. Having classic wine racks for your home is a must unless you happen to be one of those ?wine-from-a-box? types.

Finally, having elegant wine racks for your home sends a very subtle but clear message about who you are and your understanding for the finer enjoyments in life. Classic wine racks can be purchased that sit snugly on a kitchen counter or prominently constructed into a quality baker?s rack. But no matter what, the key is to store the bottles properly so be sure to purchase premium wine racks using online resources as they have the best selection and lowest prices when compared to traditional retail venues.
