You may be wondering how to organize your wine rack in a way that’s easy to navigate and aesthetically pleasing. Many people are intimidated by the idea of organizing their wines, but there are many ways to do so! In this blog post, we will go through the different steps on how to organize your wine rack so it looks as good as it tastes.
Clean and sort your wine racks
The first step is to clean your wine racks and remove any dust or debris. You don’t want your wines to get old and old wine tends to have mold on it. Since wine is very porous, it is also recommended to change the racks every two or three years so the wines don’t take on too many layers of flavor.
Store your wine by the glass The way to store your wine will depend on where it’s placed on your wine rack. One option is to put each wine in a clear glass container. This way you can see the color and take notes on the wine you’re drinking.
Additionally, they make good gift ideas if you really want to impress someone. Using books is another option, however you’ll need to determine where you want your wine rack.
Use the right size rack for your space
Before we go any further, it’s important that you know what size wine rack you have in the first place. Your ideal rack should be around 50″ long to accommodate larger bottles and around 36″ wide to give you room to hang up one or two smaller bottles.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help if you’re unsure of which size is best for you. Larger bottles such as magnums will take up more space, but the space they take up is worth it when you know that you’re going to get great service and have a great experience, since your glass will be filled with a huge pour of wine.
Why order glass instead of plastic? Plastic wine bottles come in many different sizes and shapes, but it’s easy to understand why plastic is superior to glass.
Add a label to your wine rack
If your wine rack doesn’t have a label, then adding one is the first step to organizing your wine rack and making it look professional. Label your wine rack in a way that’s easily readable by the naked eye, and note that each label will have it’s own hole or hole and a little string attached.
This way you can hang each label on it’s own hole to ensure you’re not just having to read your own wine label. If your wine rack does have a label, then there are many ways you can label it. For one thing, you can simply write your name on the label.
If you have multiple wines on your wine rack, you can make a “yes/no” system. That way if you decide to taste them all, you can easily see which ones you’ve already tried and which ones you haven’t, and what you’d like to keep.
Arrange by type of grape (e.g. red, white, rosé)
As well as by wine style (e.g. red-tinged, syrah-y, etc.) Make your base layer on the left side (similar to the view above) Place your newest additions on the right side Trim to fit the correct height and correct spacing. Organize by reds (upright) Or whites (bowl) Notice the uneven gaps in between reds and whites.
These gaps represent the depths of each color. When possible, try to arrange the different varieties of wine in an even, parallel arrangement. This way, when you go to pour a glass, you can easily tell which glass has the right amount of wine.
You can see that on the right side, there is an uneven space where white wine can go on the top. This is because white wine usually has a more neutral color than red wine, therefore it can go on top.
Arrange by style of wine (like dry or sweet)
Wine labels help to organize the wine rack, so you should keep them in a separate area. If you are able to see each label on each label, you will be able to easily identify a wine by that style. If you know what kind of wine you have but can’t clearly see the label, then you should consider getting a bottle opener to stick on your wine rack.
If you like to try different wines and even order from different wine brands, then this will help you easily identify a wine by the type of label. If your wine rack is small, just take out all of the labels and place them in your refrigerator. You will be able to re-arrange your labels easily by rotating your wine rack when you open the refrigerator!
Arrange by region
The easiest way to organize your wine rack is by region. It’s the easiest way to distinguish between the different regions in the wine world. All you have to do is place each bottle of wine on its region or country label.
If you’re unsure where you want to organize your bottles, you can always label each region with a heart, a pine cone, or even a wine. Decorate the heart with the name of your state, county, or region. Organize by food Next, we can organize our wine racks by food.
This is the most popular method to organize a wine rack because it allows you to organize wines by themes (i.e., California or Burgundy) in a way that’s easily manageable. I organize my wine racks by foods and beverages.
Finish with an accent piece
Sometimes, you have the extra storage space in your house or apartment, and that extra space can be used in a much better way. For example, we have those things that we don’t need, and they end up taking up space in our closets.
But if you use those extra storage spaces to store your wine, then you will be able to enjoy those wonderful bottles that you’ve purchased. Frame your wine labels What better way to hang up your very favorite wines on the wall? Your walls will look better, the names will be more noticeable, and the labels will actually be able to be viewed.
If you have many labels to hang, put one on your wall and hang it with the others, and you’ll have a full wine wall. Decorate with wire racks If you are going to hang your wine on a wall, you’ll want to protect the wall.
Add some decorations to make it more exciting
Depending on the amount of space you have, you can easily find some options for customizing your wine rack. If you have less than 5 feet of space, you can hang multiple items on the wall to make the space look bigger.
Hang your best bottle at the back of the rack and use a corkscrew to open it, this is the perfect way to showcase the quality of your favorite wine. However, if your space is more than 5 feet, you should consider buying some wine racks that have a profile so that you can put all your bottles in one place.
You can buy wine racks that have screw-like brackets at your local wine stores. When you buy wine racks for a bigger space, you can also choose the material that you like. You can also think of your personal style and buy a wine rack that fits your taste.
Enjoy your new organized wine rack!
Start with a focused need. First of all, you need to answer a very important question: What’s the purpose of the wine rack in your home? For some people, wine is only for special occasions or for the evening when they can’t think of anything better to do.
However, for others, wine is the essential ingredient for their daily lifestyle. If you fall into the second category, then you need to make sure that your wine rack does not become a cluttered storage unit. It’s best to organize your wines based on personal use rather than chronological order.
For example, if you drink red wines, then the first section you need to organize should be your reds. That way, when you’re looking for a good red wine, you’ll find them easily without having to browse through every available section.
So there you have it! Hopefully, after reading this, you have an easy way of organizing your wine rack. If you haven’t yet, join our mailing list or review our wine club today. We look forward to helping you.
