Generally speaking, you can tell how much a person loves wine by the amount of it they keep in their home. When a house is outfitted with a cellar of its own, for example, you’ve likely got a connoisseur — or at least a serious enthusiast — on your hands. And while not everyone is of the means to simply have a wine cellar created out of thin air in one’s own house, a few inventive workarounds exist that enable friends of the grape to display their favorite vintages while storing them at proper angles in plain view of guests, ready for enjoyment at a moment’s notice. From the precision of a great wine refrigerator to the old-school charm of a simple modular rack (with a cool coffee table thrown in just for kicks), there’s something for every budget — and every level of aspiring sommelier, for that matter — in today’s roundup of ten wine storage ideas. Let’s raise a toast to variety — it is, after all, the spice of life.
