Top tips to establish a great wine collection of your own
Once you get the bug, building a fine wine collection can be somewhat intoxicating.
A project not to be taken lightly, a well organised cellar or a wine collection that is
complete with unique or rare wine is one of life’s greatest pleasures. So how does
one go about establishing a noteworthy wine collection?
Firstly, it’s important to decide whether you’re looking at wine as an investment, in
which case it can pay to employ the services of a bonded warehouse to ensure
traceability and exception from duties and taxes. However, it is worth nothing that for
many, a warehouse takes much of the fun of collecting.
So, if your wine collection is for drinking or proudly showing to friends and family, it’s
time to consider a home cellar. From a simple passively cooled storage area, to
bespoke active controlled temperature and humidity regulated structures, the choice
of wine cellars is almost endless.
With storage sorted, it’s time to consider your wine. If you’re considering putting time
and money into building a great wine cellar, it is worth consulting an expert. From
ensuring a well-rounded collection, to confirming the wine you purchase is suitable,
offers quality and ultimately achieves value. At Bacchus Concierge, we are a firm
believer in having a balanced wine cellar. By balanced, we mean your collection
includes a selection of new and vintages, white, red and even sparkling wines, as
well as rare and everyday wines.
