How many bottles of wine are currently in your house?

If you've got more than a few, how and where do you store them?

I'm up to about 100 at the moment but only have a 48 bottle wine rack so the rest are stacked in boxes in cupboards and under the stairs.

Any ideas?

I have 1 in the fridge.
I have asked DH if we could start buying wine to keep. He nearly choked on his Stella.
He is so uncoof grin

We have two bottles of wine.

I am getting married this summer (July), at my parents, and they have started buying wines for the occasion. They probably have about 50 bottles in the garden room, and do not have a cellar. They still have a further 150 bottles to buy. Should I get them moved. My in-laws have a cellar?

None unless you count the bottles for recycling. I do love that spiral cellar though. I want one!

If no cellar or wine cabinet, best place for storage is actually somewhere the temperature/humidity won't fluctuate too much over time. Garages tend to drop very cold overnight / in winter, so aren't best for long term storage.
But I guess it depends on how long you "keep" your wine before there's an idea for a thread!

Not enough.

Zero here too as I hate wine. I think cellar or garage beat bet if no spiral thing?

We also have a spiral cellar, ours is under the garage.

Don't know how much is in there, expect dh does. Not sure if it is in 4 figures.

We had a spiral cellar put into our kitchen 4 years ago and its fab. We buy young, direct from vineyards and store until ready to saves money in the long run. Usually have 500-600 in stock.

2 bottles of fizz and 4 or 5 bottles of wine at present. Have a case on order, due any day, and another about to be ordered. We don't order more than we can store easily.

Over 100, all home made. Stored on racks in dark cupboards.

God I need a wine cellar!

I keep trying to persuade DH we should get one of those spiral staircase wine cellars dug into the garden but he's not having any of it.

We have no basement or cellar sadly.

100 or so here, another, ermm, 2000 or so at family home in France blush

The ones here are just stored in ordinary racks, they aren't around for long enough for the temperature/humidity to affect them. The ones in France are in a deep cellar.

memphis83 Thu 24-Mar-11 20:49:59

when you put any ideas? are you asking on where to store them??? surely storing wine is boring drink them all!!!!!!

5inthebed Thu 24-Mar-11 20:45:25

I have 6, but that is only because I won a box on here.

FirmBottom Thu 24-Mar-11 20:45:16

We just bought some at a wine fair in France, so about 30 bottles. Have a list for our trip to Germany, we will likely bring back about 5 or 6 cases.

We tend to buy directly from the vineyards.

Geepers Thu 24-Mar-11 20:43:15

I have one. We are tee total but it was given to us when we gave away a trampoline on freecycle. It's going to school tomorrow for the raffle.

FourFingeredKitkat Thu 24-Mar-11 20:42:16

Dunno, maybe 10-15 wine, 2 nice port, 2 nice champers, 1 V Nice champers!

NorkyButNice Thu 24-Mar-11 20:41:05

Under the bed is a good idea - thanks for that.

Everyone else can buy their own! grin

greedychops Thu 24-Mar-11 20:09:51

We have about 12 but when we bring some back from France we usually store them under the bed a it's a fairly constant temperature, but it's never for long term storage.
