What you need to know when choosing a wine cabinet

Storing wine correctly should be easy. Still, there are a few things to consider when choosing
a wine cabinet. Check out our rundown of key wine cabinet need-to-knows!

How many bottles can it fit?

The bottle capacity indicated for wine cabinets is when completely full and is measured using standard 75 cl Bordeaux bottles. As bottles come in all shapes and sizes, the actual capacity will often be slightly lower than stated.

How big a wine cabinet do I need?

Remember that wine collections grow quickly, as will your desire to collect wine once you have a wine cabinet! So if you have the space and the budget, you may want to choose a wine cabinet that has 25 to 50 per cent more capacity than your current wine collection.

Positioning of the wine cabinet

The vast majority of our wine cabinet models can be used as freestanding units. Some can be fitted into a recess under the kitchen counter, while other models can be integrated in tall cabinets or under a counter with the base at the front.

You can store more than just wine bottles…

A wine cabinet is also the perfect place to store your bag-in-box wine! Take the bag out of the carton and place it in the wine cabinet. A wine cabinet is also ideal for storing cigars, chocolate and gin and other spirits.
