Hanging wine racks help to neatly store wine in tight spaces. You can find wall-mounted wine racks that hold six bottles with slots to hang your stemware. Both metal and wood varieties usually cost under $50 and are perfect for a small collection of wine. Iron hanging wine racks can cost $500. Some hanging wine racks are designed to hang under kitchen cabinets. These cost around $20.
One drawback to hanging wine racks, however, is that, for proper wine storage, you shouldn't use these pieces as decoration in a kitchen. Wine needs to be stored in dim, cool places with few odors. Hanging wine racks are also best for small collections, while large collections will need more storage space. Multiple hanging wine racks get expensive. Wooden cubes make a better storage system. They are inexpensive and efficient. Ask wine storage dealers for a discount if you buy more than one cube. You could also use a metal wine rack shelf for storing a smaller collection in a tight spot, like a closet or hallway.
Organizational stores sell inexpensive hanging wine racks. Shop online or in the store, but be sure to check out online deals from discount sellers or offering free shipping.
Make sure you hang your wine rack on wall studs so that your collection doesn't come crashing down.
Remember, though, that where you store your wine is far more important than how you store it. Hang the wine rack on an angle so that the wine keeps the cork moist. Never hang your wine rack where the sun will hit it. This can cook and spoil the wine. Keep your wine in a cool, dark, slightly humid spot. A consistent environment is key, so keep the temperature between 50 and 59 degrees Fahrenheit. Hanging the wine rack in a basement, closest, or dark hallway will help the wine age to perfection.
