modern and sleek wine storage option is great if you have an unused wardrobe, or area that could serve a better purpose. Housing an already large collection, you have the freedom to add more shelves and more layers if the amount of wine you hold suddenly expands. Encased in glass, your collection is still on show, yet remains within the correct climatic conditions to ensure absolute best for your wine.

For those who are just starting out, or who only have a small selection of prized bottles that require being kept under optimum conditions, can choose a unit which is cleverly disguised as a fridge. You can sleep soundly at night knowing your thirty year old bottle of Shiraz is safely stowed away. You can check on it often, like a doting parent, awaiting the day a special occasion comes when it can be served.
