Among the world’s storage challenges, wine holds a special place. Not only are wine bottles fragile, they are of a shape that doesn’t stack, and they must be kept in a dim place and at specified temperatures.
Not only that, but they must somehow be kept organized — there’s really nothing worse than being unable to locate that bottle 1990 Château Angelus Merlot when you want it.
The challenge is a serious one, but there are a whole lot of creative — and in many cases beautiful — ways to overcome it. Take a peek at these Pinterest pages to check out the best of them.
