Wine Storage Rules
Before you start your wine collection at home, it’s important to know some of the basics for wine storage and wine aging:
- It’s best to store your wine horizontally
- Keep your wine away from bright lights or direct sunlight
- Keep your wine consistently cool - ideally between 10 and 15 °C
- Keep your wine away from vibrations and movement
- Keep your wine humid - ideally, aim for 70% humidity

1. Wine Fridge
Wine Fridges are fantastic because they take out the guesswork when storing your wine. Wine fridges are designed specifically to give your wine the best conditions possible for storing and aging wine. As long as you have space, you can store your wine virtually anywhere in your home with a wine fridge. A good quality wine fridge gives you temperature control and lighting that your regular refrigerator simply can’t.
2. Wine Cellar
Wine cellars are the oldest form of wine storage - and for good reason. Wine cellars tend to have the right lighting, humidity and cool temperatures for wine storage and aging. However, not every home will have a wine cellar, or the space to create one. Check out our bespoke cellars selection for some inspiration.
3. Wine Racks
By far, wine racks are the most popular and dynamic way to store wine. Wine racks come in many styles, sizes and designs, so you can be sure that there is a wine rack for you out there. We recommend browsing our online wine rack store or getting a bespoke design to match your tastes. With a reliable wine rack, you can store your wine under the best conditions in your home. From wine ladders to wall mountable wine racks, there are so many to choose from.
4. Wine Room
Whether you live in a house or an apartment, a wine room is a fantastic way to indulge in your love for wine. As long as the room is away from vibrations, sunlight and can be kept cool, you can turn any room (or closest) into a wine room. We recommend using high-quality wine racks that suit your specifications.
5. Wine Wall
A wine wall is great for storing wine, as it doesn't take up much space and act as a stylish feature of a living room. A few options include classic wine racks or even wine cubes. Just ensure that it doesn't receive a lot of direct sunlight.
6. Wine Cabinet
Wine cabinetsare perfect for the medium to small-sized wine collection. Not only can they keep your wine cool and in the right lighting conditions, but they also double as an impressive piece of furniture that you can have anywhere in your home.
7. Wine Bar
The most ‘show-y’ of wine storage options, wine bars are designed to impress! They’re fantastic ways to store and show off your collection at parties. They also can hold other wine accessories including, wine glasses and trays.
