The purpose of a wine cabinet is simply to prevent fine wines from spoiling due to environment fluctuations resulting due to temperature, sunlight and vibrations.
Storing fine wine allows it to develop its full flavor over the years, and as a result, the value of the wine increases.
Wine cabinets can be separate box-like structures or elaborate pieces of furniture that complement the décor and ambience of any room in your house.
They can also be built as part of the cabinets in the kitchen or any other room.
Built-in wine storage with the temperature and humidity controlled is among the fastest growing trends in wine collecting today.
Wine cabinets can serve many a purpose, ranging from wine displays and wine storage to serving even as a wine cellar with proper humidity, temperature and light control required for long-term storage and maturation.
The most well-designed and attractive wine cabinets will combine many different features such as a storage compartment with scalloped or circular racks, stemware racks, accessory drawers or compartments and a serving top.
Some wine cabinets have a temperature-controlled storage compartment, giving it the status of a wine cooler or even a wine cellar, depending on how many climate elements it is designed to control.
Wine cabinets are available in a variety of styles and materials and with varying capacity, from a few bottles to several hundred.
The cost of these cabinets will depend on the size, material and the climate control features that a cabinet offers.
There is no right wine cabinet for everyone, so the right one for you depends on what you are looking to accomplish and your budget.
