- A wine rack that sits on the floor in a closet somewhere on the north side of the house is needed for having an intention to have dozens of wine.
- A modular wine racks that hold hundreds of bottles of wine is recommended for a serious collector whose plan is to store wines for more than a year to maybe ten years. A cellar or converted cellar measuring less than 3 meters square will easily hold 100 dozen bottle bottles or wine.
- The best place for wine storage is a cellar or cellar-like place that is dim, cool, and stable in temperature and movement, slightly humid and with few odors. The most horrible place would be the top of the fridge where there is vibration, constantly changing temperature, and heat from the kitchen and regular exposure to light.
- In most modern homes the cellar-like place can be a large closet, a walk-in wine pantry, space under a stairway, a specially constructed and insulated room with wine racks and wine cellar cooling systems, or even a converted corner of the garage.
