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.

Wine-making as a business for baby boomers

Wed, 21 May 2008 16:03:48 PDT
Speaking of “little old wine-makers,” have you ever thought of wine-making as a baby boomer business? There are several wine-making franchise opportunities available, including “Let’s Make Wine,” which was started by Ann Rosenberg, the widow of Dunkin Donuts entrepreneur Bill Rosenberg. Sean Kelly, over at FranchisePick, recently wrote a post about WineStyles, a new wine franchise which might become the Starbucks of Wine. If you want to try making your own wine, this issue of WineMaker Magazi

I was feeling pretty casual today, maybe because I have a 4 day weekend coming up. Hopefully I’ll get inspired to make some more outfits I know I have been a bad bad slacker. I started off with the beautiful Deadly Cords in Brown from Sn@tch. NOrmally I don’t think of cords as being beautiful but these look so soft and touchable that is definately the right word. They come in lots of dark rich colors and are going right next to my Launa and Starley pants as my new favorites. I’ve also been

They will look you right in your eyes, swear on a stack of bibles and tell you the biggest lie you've ever heard. They will say they're not going to do something, while plotting to do just wh

From Helsinki, In Haste

Sat, 24 May 2008 22:08:34 PDT
Internet access is ridiculously expensive at the hotel here in Helsinki—20 euros per day (that’s around $50, by my calculation!) or 7 euros per hour, so my plan is to write my blog offline and find an hour or tow here and there to post it, hopefully with pictures. I imagine it could well be the same in St. Petersburg and Moscow, so bear with me. A hasty early breakfast at our B & B before our car arrived to take us back to Heathrow. We were happy to have made the choice we did, partly becau
