How big the home wine storage do I need?
Many people will store some wines at home, for enjoyment, for parties, or as an investment. The quantity of wine people storage from a few bottles to thousands of bottles. Thus, their home wine storages are in different sizes. People who only storage a few or a dozen of wine will only need a cabinet in the kitchen or pantry. Some wine lovers will buy a wine fridge to store their wines. Fridges in different models can store about 50-150 bottles of wine. More, those wine lovers or collectors who own over 200 bottles of wine, should have a specific space as home wine storage for better management as well as a better environment for wine aging.
Ciematic is a wine rack maker as well as a wine cellar solution provider. Above is a frequently asked question from our private cellar owners who want to build their first wine racks or cellars.
Depending on the wine rack models and the cellar layout, the exact bottle capacity per square meter is not the same. But we still can make a rough calculation about it. Among the various type of wine racks or wine cabinets, the average capacity per square meter is about 100 standard 750ml bottles.
For example, if I have about 300 bottles of wine, then I need about 3 square meters of wine racks for them. Besides, I’ll also need some more space for future purchases. So, a set of wine racks, 2.5 meters high by 1.5 meters wide (about 3.7 square meters) is enough as my home wine storage.
Conversely, if your space for home wine storage is about 2 meters high by 3 meters wide, you can put maximum 6 square meters of wine racks inside, and the capacity is around 600 bottles.
