Not everyone has the room or a collection worthy of a wine cellar, but wine still deserves better than to be sitting in the corner of the kitchen counter. Sacramento offers several unique stores where a wine enthusiast can purchase anything from a simple wine rack to an entire wine cabinet. Here are some options to help get started on organizing your wine collection.

Refrigerator Bottle Holder

Chef's Mercantile
116 K Street
Sacramento, CA 95814
(916) 737-5616

Hours: Mon-Sat: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

If you rarely have more than one bottle in your home at one time, consider a Holdups wine bottle holder. This holder clips onto the refrigerator rack, keeping your wine on its side and your fridge organized. Grab one at Chef’s Mercantile in Old Sacramento.

Small Wine Rack

Lumens Light + Living
2028 K Street
Sacramento, CA 95811
(916) 444-5585

Hours: Tues-Fri: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.; Sat: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Small, tabletop wine racks are the perfect solution for smaller collections of three to six bottles. They come in a variety of styles and can be placed on the counter top, table, or shelf.  If your tastes are modern and contemporary, try a stainless steel or clear acrylic wine holder. Lumens Light + Living in Midtown has several beautiful wine racks in sleek and classic designs.

Wine Shelf

Haus Home Decor
5601 H Street
Sacramento, CA 95816
(916) 448-4100

Hours: Mon-Sat: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

If you are short on space or need to keep wine bottles up and away from tiny hands, a shelf is the perfect solution. Made from sturdy wood, this shelf features removable trays for holding up to 16 bottles of wine, as well as 24 hanging wine glasses.

Buffet Server

Living Space
1313 Broadway
Sacramento, CA 95818
(916) 446-9369

Hours: Mon-Sat: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.; Sun: Noon – 5 p.m.; Wed: Closed

Another beautiful and functional option for storing wine bottles is a buffet server. A buffet server typically features a center wine rack for storing several bottles, as well as cabinets and drawers for extra storage. Available in a variety of styles, buffet servers are great for entertaining and can be placed in the dining room or even the living room.

If your wine collection is larger and you plan on storing your bottles long-term, you will want to consider a wine cabinet. Available as a stand-alone prefabricated piece or custom-built to suit your home’s style and space, a wine cabinet is a great solution for a more extensive collection. Since proper storage of wine is a fundamental aspect of serious collecting, a wine cabinet offers climate and humidity controls, lighting and a unique showcase for collectible wines.
