In Luxembourg, cellars are common in many houses. Some use it as storage of wines and others as a space for other things apart from beverages.
Cleaning and organizing cellar storage is probably one of the last things that come to your mind. But when you feel like organizing your cellar, know that it does take a lot of work.
Organizing your wine storage
If you are a wine enthusiast, taking care of your cellar to keep the condition of your wine collection is necessary.
When it comes to proper storing, handling, and aging of wines, your cellar at home should have the perfect environment. It should have good ventilation to maintain just the right amount of humidity and it should also be free from clutters and other build-ups.
The thought of organizing a cellar may seem easy but in the process of doing it, you would realize that there are actually a lot of things to prioritize. Before you know it, you have spent a day in your cellar without doing a lot of things.
The key to cleaning and organizing your cellar storage is proper planning. If you have a huge collection of wines in your cellar, it might be efficient to make an inventory of the bottles and classify them according to your desire. You may classify them by age, by the size of the bottles, or by your drinking preference. Doing this can take hours or even days if you have a lot to organize. After doing the inventory, you must also get rid of the dust that accumulated over the months on wine bottles and racks.
Since a cellar is dark and humid, molds sometimes grow on glass bottles and cabinets. Constantly checking is necessary to prevent the damaging of wine bottles.
