There are many ways to preserve your wine collection. But not all of them keep it in good condition. To store your wine the proper way, you have to store it at a room temperature of 12°C and 60% humidity. Additionally, the room should have low light intensity and remain vibration free to allow sediments to settle. A wine rack plays an indispensable role in achieving these requirements. Racks come in different shapes, sizes and styles as displayed on Twitter. Some models like thermoelectric wine refrigerators reduce vibrations, while other models have floating shelves to serve the same purpose. Regardless of your choice, there comes a time when you need to replace the racks to keep your wine safe and in good condition.
Why Replace Wine Racks
There are several reasons you should repurpose your wine racks. First, they could be faulty. Another factor that prompts rack replacement is that most wine rack designs only accommodate standard bottles but not big or oddly shaped bottles. Brews like Chianti and Pulcinella are examples of wines that do not fit in standard racks due to their large base. This means you have to replace the racks before adding other uniquely shaped bottles to your collection. Most wineries that produce older brews still bottle them in peculiarly shaped packages that do not fit in standard shelves. Fortunately, you can easily purchase replaceable wine racks to suit different types of bottles and keep a diverse collection of wines.
Replacing Wine Racks
Once you have acquired a new wine rack, be cautious enough while swapping it with the old one to avoid damages. Here is a 4-step procedure on how to replace your wine rack. (1) Move wine from the old racks to a temporary location. (2) Carefully remove the old racks. (3) Insert the new rack. (4) Place your wine bottles on the new rack carefully. Note that wine coolers provide a more convenient way of storing your wine collection. The right wine rack offers a proper aging environment. It remains undisturbed in ideal temperature and humidity.
