Creating a tasting space in your home can be a daunting task as an area for tasting cannot be distinctly defined or designed.

There are no rules as to what constitutes a room for tasting over another entertaining space, so it is important to think outside of the box and create a room that will suit its intended purpose. Whether you need a multi-functional space or one specifically for wine tasting, Vinotemp has many options to help you design a stunning space.
The key element of any tasting space is a tabletop surface on which to serve. This space will be used to pour wine and gather with friends. Some of our standalone wine storage options are topped with a functional serving table. Another option to consider is a wine credenza. A credenza can store wine and is low enough to serve as a bar or table. If you are looking specifically for a table, Vinotemp can custom build a table and incorporate wine barrel staves (pictured below).

Wine can be very fragile. If you are currently storing your wine in a standard food refrigerator, it is vulnerable to the smells of any leftovers or open food. Even if you are storing your wine in a closet, pantry, or cupboard, the environment may be too warm and dry to properly age wine. A wine fridge can provide the ideal setting for storing your collection. Today we are rounding up some of our favorite and best reviewed wine refrigerators.
 
Stylish and Small Wine Refrigerator
At nearly six inches wide, Vinotemp's 7-Bottle Wine Refrigerators are tiny but mighty. Despite their size, they still feature many of the same features as larger models including digital controllers, sturdy wire racking interior light, and a powerful compressor cooling system that will keep your wine at the proper storage temperature. This model is designed with front exhaust which allows it to be installed under counter. Available with a black, mirrored, or stainless-steel finish, it is perfect for the small space dweller with a love for wine.

Storage

How and where you store your wine will largely depend on the size of your collection. If it is small to medium, a wine refrigerator may be the best option. Medium to large collections may require a wine cabinet. Larger collections will need a wine cellar. You may also go the simplest route and place your bottles in a cool and dark space such as a basement or unused closet that is free from regular foot traffic, sunlight, and temperature fluctuations.

A Guide to Wine Bottles

10/3/2018 2:59 PM

Educating yourself on the variety of wine bottle sizes and shapes may feel overwhelming --- there’s so many. In the 1700s, wine makers began to deviate from what was the standard of the time once they discovered that different bottles affected how well the cork could seal as well as the taste of the wine itself. The size of the bottle not only influences taste, it can dictate your storage options as well.

Wine Storage Basics

10/3/2018 2:47 PM

Wine cave construction in the United States has a long history dating back to the 1800s in the Sonoma and Napa Valley regions of California. During these early days, workers used shovels, chisels, pick-axes, and sometimes explosives to break through rock. They labored by candlelight and moved unwanted material using straw baskets, all to create the perfect environment for the long-term storage of wine.
