Wine-drinking is no longer restricted to the connoisseurs as more and more people have started enjoying a glass or two of wine even at home. Wine-drinking calls for a certain etiquette like holding the glass properly, sniffing the bouquet, twirling the wine in the glass etc. which we generally leave for the connoisseurs. But, the fact remains that wine bottles do need to be stored at the correct temperature and angle for the wine to remain drinkable. Shops and online sites abound offering racks, holders and other accessories for wine, the most basic of which are at least essential for any home stocking wine or even while making a present of wine.
Racks for wine are easily available to suit all budgets and tastes and can range from the most basic to the most elegant or whimsical yet always practical. Storage solutions can be in the form of floor racks, hanging racks on walls or table-top racks.
Floor racks are one of the best as they store the wine bottles correctly with the cork touching the wine so that the wine does not get spoilt. An elegant floor rack will add to the beauty of your drawing room while displaying your collection of wine bottles to maximum advantage. These wine racks need no installation and can be moved freely at will. Wall mounted racks for wine save space and you can always add to the racks for more storage. Table-top wine racks not only look stylish but the labels can also be read properly.
Wine holders can be used to display a vintage bottle of wine or any other single bottle which you would like to set apart from your collection. Or maybe you are the type who buys only one bottle at a time yet would like to display it nicely; a holder for wine is the perfect answer.
Wine bottles should not be stood up as the cork will dry up and the wine may go bad so wine holders are perfect for showing off the favorite bottle the correct way! They also come in handy for gifting that solitary bottle of wine; instead of turning up with a clumsily wrapped up wine bottle, putting the bottle in a wine holder looks so much more elegant. Fun, elegant, purely functional or with just a touch of the whimsy; these holders come in a variety of designs and materials and with different holding capacity.
Wine accessories can make or mar the whole effect of opening that special or even ordinary bottle of wine. Wine openers, bottle stops, corkscrews, vacuum stops, wine glasses are all accessories which no wine enthusiast should be without. These also make great gifts for wine lovers and one can pick up beautiful handcrafted bottle stoppers or state-of-the art corkscrews.
Wine glasses can be had in beautiful hand-cut crystal or plain glass and anyone serving or drinking wine must have a decent collection of wine glasses. Wine accessories are necessary to present, serve and preserve your bottle of wine in the correct manner.
