Last week I ran through the ABCs of wine storage. Today, I'm going to jump ahead and assume that you've moved your wine out of the hall closet and into something a little cooler that, in all likelihood some 30-bottle wine fridge from Home Depot or Target that rattles and hums nearly as much as U2. Wine refrigerators certainly keep wines cold, but tend to have temperature swings as much as 15 degrees as the cooling system kicks on and off. Since proper cellaring requires steady temps, this doesn’t work for long-term aging.

I don't own a lot of wine, especially when compared to some of my colleagues. And what I do own isn't particularly expensive--the average bottle in my "collection" costs between $12-$15. But after a couple of prematurely popped corks and bottles seeping in the sweltering second-floor, unairconditoned Hollywood apartment I used to call home, addressing my wine storage situation became unavoidable.
