Looking to invest in some nice bottles to keep around for a rainy day? As thrilling as it is to start collecting wine, you can’t stop there—that wine needs a place to rest until you’re ready for it.

You probably already know that it’s ideal for keeping wines in the dark space with a consistently cool temperature and high humidity. The bottles should stay on their side if you’re keeping them around for very long, as it keeps the cork properly moistened. And, of course, it’s important to keep them stashed safely away in something as beautiful as it is functional! Here are our favorite pieces for storing your age-worthy wine.
