Nothing makes a gathering of friends more special than opening a prized bottle of wine. While many people simply visit their local grocery stores to purchase wine for an event they are celebrating, wine enthusiasts may wish to spend some time visiting a Wine Store and beginning their own collection of wines to be stored and enjoyed months or years into the future. Building a home cellar can be a fun project, but it does require a little bit of study and planning.
When a wine enthusiast first visits a Wine Store, he or she should seek out the advice of one of the employees. Workers will be happy to share their knowledge and experiences when it comes to wine. They will be able to point out which wines are best suited for long term storage. They can also provide advice about serving temperatures, wine and food pairing, and the different flavor notes that can be detected with each varietal. They may also be able to offer special by the case pricing for customers who want to build a large collection very quickly.
Many novice wine collectors believe that a good bottle of wine must be very expensive, and very old. This is not necessarily the case. A good wine and liquor store like Towne Cellars Wine & Liquors will offer many bottles of wine for less than twenty dollars each. These wines taste great and stand up very well when compared to more expensive bottles of wine. Collectors who want to build a cellar with a variety of wines should consider these less expensive bottles of wine when starting their collection.
Finally, it is important to consider wine storage options. If there is a cool, windowless room in the basement, that is a great place to store wine. The newly minted wine enthusiast will just need to purchase or build wine racks. There are many videos available on the internet that provide instruction on how to build wine racks from items that can be found around the house. If there is no room in the house suitable for wine storage, the collector will need to purchase a temperature controlled wine storage unit. For more information visit our Facebook page!
