Through a series of recent events, which if you’re a good reader of this blog you already know about, my wife and I have come to have more wine in our house than our current selection of wine storage can support (for those wondering, we have a wine fridge that supports 8 bottles, a buffet in our dining room that supports about 10, and a small glass topped wine rack that supports another 8 bottles).
The two cases of wine sitting in boxes in a hall closet has lead us to begin considering purchasing another cabinet that could store some of, if not all, of this wine for us. While doing some looking, I came across the Vintage Series Impression wine cabinets carried by Vintage Cellars. I instantly fell in love.
Now, I should begin by saying that I’d lying if I said I was absolutely going to buy one of these, mostly because the starting price for the smallest of these is $3200…and that’s without shipping. That being said, if you’ve got the money to spend and are looking for a high-end wine cabinet, these are definitely ones to consider.
The smallest cabinet stores roughly 186 bottles (admittedly more than I need at the moment), with the biggest storing roughly 590 bottles for those that really know how to buy and save wine. Built from cherry hardwood with California redwood racking, there’s no denying that these are solid cabinets, and with the range of finishes they come in (natural, light, medium, dark, light cherry, and dark cherry), you’ll be able to match them to the look and feel of whatever room they’re going to be in.
Most importantly for any wine lover, these wine cabinets come with a Breezaire Cooling system with Digital Sentry III Control System to ensure that you keep your wine at the optimum temperature for storage and aging.
Now as I stated at the beginning of this post, as much as I fell in love with these cabinets when I saw them, I’d be lying if I said I was going to run out and buy them because, quite frankly, I don’t have three grand to drop on wine cabinets at the moment. So, with that in mind, I’m proud to announce the Wine Blogger Support Fund.
The WBSF is here to help those of us in the wine blogging industry indulge in all the great wine and wine accessories that we read and write about, but don’t have the funds to actually own. Before anybody sends in a check…I’m only joking.
