Last week I finally completed the total refinishing of my basement, turning it from a cobweb-infested cockroach resort into a stunning, state of the art “Man Cave”. This was my own place to call my own, so I took special care to ensure little get-away had everything I needed.
I have installed a 70” flat screen high definition television, a billiards table, a wet bar, bar stools, a huge sectional sofa all atop the coziest shag carpet you will ever find. This man cave really has it all, but there was one last piece missing.
Let me preface this by mentioning that some guys are really into sports like football and baseball; others are really into music or movies. Me, I am a die-hard, passionate foodie. Give me “No Reservations” with Anthony Bourdain over the NFC championship game any day; I’d rather watch Top Chef marathons then spend hours watching NASCAR.
As anyone that is familiar with a hardcore foodie knows, the best pairing for a delicious meal is a perfectly aged bottle of wine. Seeing that I am one of the most extreme gourmets out there, I have an enormous wine collection.
That is where the refinished basement comes in. The one element I have been missing in my man cave is a place to store my collection of wines. I have Syrah, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir, Burgundy; you name it, I have at least one bottle of it!
The perfect storage solution for all of these wine bottles is a set of the space-saving wire wine racks. These durable, space efficient wine racks were just what I needed to organize my wine collection and the man cave I would store it in.
I purchased a couple of the 75-bottle wine racks (I told you my collection was large!) and installed them into my basement. The racks are tall and thin, which save space; the tall racks included brackets to mount them to the wall, which add stability. The metal frame is coated with protective lining; ensuring the bottles will not get damaged while in storage.
