For those who have a love for wine and a desire to protect their wine investment, but no place to build a wine cellar or keep a wine refrigerator, small wine cabinets are an ideal way to solve the problems of wine storage. While some wine storage systems can definitely be space-consuming, don't think that a loft apartment means you're out of luck.
Modern wine storage solutions include cabinets designed for small spaces. Companies like EuroCave and Transtherm make very small wine cabinets, most with single-deep shelves, that at about 30 inches high, can fit under your kitchen or restaurant counter and hold around 30 bottles. Companies like Le Cache make small wine cabinets that hold less than 200 bottles. All of these cabinets are fully equipped with the cooling and humidifying systems that encourage wine to age to a state of delicious perfection. Some kinds of small wine cabinets can even be plugged into standard household outlets, making it easy to add a wine storage system to your home. Many small wine cabinets have adjustable shelves to accommodate large bottles if needed.
Like regular sized wine cabinets, small wine cabinets are available in a variety of styles and finishes, including stainless steel, treated glass, and several attractive wood finishes. With the choice of quality small wine cabinets that are available on the market today, storage space does not have to be an obstacle to keep you from appropriately caring for your wine collection.
