I hate to disappoint, but we can't all have spiral wine cellars. (I know!) So what are the rest of us supposed to do with our wine bottles? Well, we could do worse than one of these clever storage solutions. For me the biggest takeaway from these photos is this: awkwardly placed or otherwise unused areas in your home or kitchen may be the perfect wine storage solution. A blank wall, a narrow drawer or shelf, or the empty space above the kitchen cabinets can become, with a little tweaking, the perfect place to store your wine bottles, especially the ones that you know you'll drink soon.
Short-term wine storage can go nearly anywhere (you really don't have to worry about long-term cellaring issues like heat or light when you're going to drink the wine soon).
How do you store wine bottles? Do you have a favorite wine rack? A particularly useful DIY solution? Or do you not buy enough wine bottles to have it really be of any concern?
