When you’re looking for a certain wine in your cellar, how long does it take you to find the bottle that you want? The length of time you stay in the cellar can have an effect on the temperature and humidity balance in your wine room. The heat that your body releases can affect the coolness in the cellar. The consequences are worse if you consistently get bottles from your storage space. Constant opening of your cellar door can cause fluctuations in the climate conditions inside, which can damage your collection.

Vintage View racking systems display bottles with their labels facing you, so that it’s easier for you to identify your favorite wines. You won’t have to spend too much time scouring the racks for a specific bottle. With just one look at the display, you’ll be able to locate the wine you are looking for.

Wine and temperature are an indispensable pair. Without the right coolness, wine cannot age properly. There are times when the cool air can’t reach the bottles that are kept in hard-to-reach areas in the cellar. The open airflow design of Vintage View racks allows the coolness in the room to circulate evenly around all of the bottles. This equal distribution of temperature throughout all of the wine storage structure helps protect your prized collection from damage.
