Wine Cellars: Does Size Matter?

September 25, 2013

When it comes to collecting, wine lovers are as varied as the bottles they keep. While many are satisfied with a few cases stored in a cool corner of the basement or a small wine fridge, others invest in a luxurious walk-in cellar capable of holding several thousand bottles. Yet a middle way is emerging for collectors who purchase most bottles for early drinking and to support an active lifestyle of cooking and entertaining. In our Oct. 31 issue, we take a look at "The Contemporary Cellar"—generally sized to hold less than 1,000 bottles and be an integral element of a home's living space.

If you collect wine, how many bottles do you have in your cellar?

Fewer than 250

250 to 500

501 to 1,000

1,001 to 3,000

More than 3,000
