Wine storage

As we slowly progress towards taking our first trip, we've started to load the RV with the basic necessities. We began looking at stowing of food and provisions, and we are at the question of wine storage. What do you wine drinkers do to store yours? One solution I'm considering is a wine rack laid on it's side it the rear closet. Wine Racks America : 24 Bottle Table Top Wine Rack

Any thoughts, comments or suggestions you'd care to share??

The distance between the spacers on your shown wine rack is different when it is laying on its side. Bottles would roll around. You will need a rack that maintains the correct spacing where you will be using it. The build looks pretty straight forward. Maybe you could just build you one......Know anyone that works with wood. Maybe find a wood working club or shop?...........Hope this helps..............ronspradley

Ron: I agree, but I think the only area that would require modification would be at the top (4 bottles). That I can fix.

I just put the wine on the pantry shelf. I haven't had any problem with the box rolling around yet.

We buy our as we need it and sample wine from other parts of the country but the best wines come from the Osage ridge just west of St.Charles Mo. on Hyw.94.

Don't think I would put a rack in the rear closet. Our pusher gets very hot back there and it can't be good for the wine.
As to the rack, look at www.jkadamsdirect.com/wine-racks/ ... They go together like Tinker Toys and can be made to fit most any situation.

You want the bottles quite tight. I've found the easiest solution simply to use a wine box and store it upright in one of the cupboards or downstairs bin (depending on how much we are carrying). You'll get plenty of rock and rolling with the driving so whether the bottles are upright or sideways doesn't really matter. And I find upright is safer with less chance of anything falling out. We store our "bar" liquor the same way and have a modified box (with foam inserts) for our glasses. No breaks 2 years on the road so the system works

So glad you asked that question . . . we plan to hit the road full time in 5 years, but have purchased the coach already. I am constantly wrestling with where to put wine. I've settled for the short term with one of those carriers they have at grocery stores for when you buy 6 bottles of wine, but it's temporary at best. I like the tinker toy suggestion and have saved the link!

Wine mailer box, the kind wine clubs ship wine in, no matter how you store it, bottles nestled in there quite happy, well protected, insulated a bit

Agree completely. We have used this method for 11 years with no problem. You can get a 12 bottle case box at any winery in the country.

Of course the best way to acquire a box is to get one with 12 bottles in it!

Exactly, cheap and convenient. You can store the box upright for travel and when you are at your destination, turn it on its side if your wine has actual corks and you don't want them drying out (yes, I undertand it takes time for them to dry out, but you never know how long someone may store wine in their RV...i.e. fulltimer). Plastic corks should make no difference if the bottle is stored upright or on the side.
