Wine, Wine Clubs & Storage
By. Dennis Conner Digg!

For those who enjoy the taste of a fine wine, signing up for membership in a wine club may be just the ticket for quenching your thirst. Wine clubs are designed as special interest clubs that are tailored to educating their members on fine wines and also the sampling of various wines from around the world. Today, there are a number of wine clubs in existence with each operating differently from another. One of the most common practices of wine clubs is a monthly or annual subscription fee, which must be paid by the members, in exchange for the privilege of inclusion.

Among the popular activities shared amongst wine club members include regular receipt of fine wines from around the globe, purchase discounts, invitations to wine events and tasting sessions, information and news surrounding the industry and opportunities of travel to regions known for wine making.

In order to comply with legal requirements, wine club members must be age 21 or above prior to enrollment. New members are often required to provide two forms of identification. For those who are eligible, wine clubs are proving to be well worth the cost. In addition, it gives members an opportunity to sample free wines that they may otherwise not have the opportunity to try.

After joining a wine club, you may find that your newly inspired knowledge has lead to an impressive collection. In order to keep your wine organized and stored safely, you may want to consider the purchase of a wine rack. These storage devices are designed to house wine bottles for long term aging, but may also be used as temporary storage. The majority of wine racks are created so that the wine bottles may be stored on their side while maintaining a slight slant toward’s the neck of the bottle. By storing the bottle in this position, the wine will remain in constant contact with the cork, which will then be prevented from drying out. Depending on your choice of material and your budget, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn that wine racks are made of a variety of materials. This includes stone, wood and steel and the capacity can range anywhere from several bottles of wine to thousands.

For many, wine is an investment. For others, it’s a passion. Regardless of whether you enjoy the taste of a fine wine for love or for profit, being introduced to samples from around the world and knowing how to properly store and preserve your wine will make the taste in your mouth even sweeter.
