8 Bottle Cuisinart Wine Cellar
A wine cellar will store your favorite white wine, red wine, or champagnes in the optimal temperature and humidity. Climate control systems take all the guess work out of maintaining the perfect environment for your fine wines.
An underground room that stores bottles is called a passive wine cellar, and are not climate controlled - the underground setting reduces temperature variations. A wine room is an above ground wine cellar, and a room that stores less than 500 bottles is often called a wine closet.
For those who enjoy a glass of wine that has been protected from variations that can result in a substandard product, but don't have the basement or room for large wine storage, there are options in the form of compact wine cellars that hold any where from 4 to 32 bottles of wine.

For the serious wine connoisseur, how their wine is stored is an important consideration. Whether it is to be consumed soon after purchase and the drinking temperature is an issue, or whether it is to be kept and aged, the proper wine storage method is a favored topic.
Wine is one item that truly is better with age, and temperature control is a relevant issue. If the wine is exposed to a temperature that is too high (in excess of 77degrees) for long periods of time, it may spoil, and develop a "stewed" flavor. Various wines react differently in regards to how long they can be left in too warm conditions.
If the wine is exposed to temperatures that are too cold, the wine can freeze or expand, and the cork may be pushed out. Dramatic fluctuations in temperature can also cause adverse chemical reactions. It is recommended to keep your wine at a constant temperature (between 50 and 59 degrees Fahrenheit).
