  • Luxury metal wine racking systems

    If you store your surplus bottles in a cardboard box in the basement, and that’s how you like it, so be it. Yet if you have given serious thought to storing your wines in such a way that the bottles can be displayed for aesthetic pleasure while your wine matures in optimal conditions, you may be dismayed by the abundance of commercially available wine racks that come in standard sizes and cheap wood. Depending on where and how your wine storage space is configured, ordinary wooden racking systems simply may not work with your space and design.
    Many have recognized this problem, but several years ago, Cable Wine Systems decided to take action and create custom wine racking displays made from luxury materials like the highest quality stainless steel cable and chromed brass clamps. It’s a wine racking system that works like no other!

  • Wine Collecting Isn’t What it Used to Be

    Do you think of wine collecting as the pastime of the uber-rich? When you hear the words ‘wine collector’ perhaps the image of a stern patriarch wearing a tweed jacket with elbow patches, smoking a pipe in a dark wood-paneled wine cellar surrounded by thousands of bottles, comes to mind? That’s so last century. For better or worse, wine collecting isn’t what it used to be – and if North America’s 75 million-strong Millennial cohort has already changed the world of wine collecting forever, imagine what the world of wine will look like to subsequent generations!

    Today’s wine collectors are a different breed

    While the art of wine collecting has existed since man first crushed grapes, old stereotypes about wine collecting are being smashed as we move into a new era. Whether for available disposable income, higher confidence levels, or other reasons, wine collecting still remains mostly a man’s game; other than that, it’s a different hobby than it used to be. Here are some of the ways in which today’s new wine collectors have changed the game:

    • Fascination with backstory. Who says young people have short attention spans? More than their predecessors, young people are interested in the narrative of wines, even to the point of popularizing wines that probably don’t deserve it just because they’re rustic, hip or the next cool thing.
    • Technological savvy. Rather than a just few people obsessively collecting and possessively guarding arcane knowledge about wines, all of today’s young collectors can find out the most obscure details about the most obscure vintages on earth, in seconds, with a few swipes. They also love sharing that information with others as opposed to jealously hoarding it. Rather than getting their information about wine in print, this generation is solidly digital and more likely to turn to the web for answers and wine advice.
    • Experiential bent. Millennials aren’t apt to blindly follow the 100-point scale and base their purchases on it; their buying habits are swayed by word of mouth and personal experience rather than the points awarded to a particular wine by a distant critic or wine columnist.
    • Smaller scale. Millennials are fine with a smaller collection as long as it has a personal wow factor for them.
    • Willingness to try new things. The brand loyalty seen in the Boomer generation is much lower among Millennials, who are willing to try just about anything (at least by the glass!).
    • Willingness to learn. Wine tastings are increasingly popular among younger wine lovers, as is the idea of seeking out a sommelier’s license ‘just because’ – something you wouldn’t see as much among previous generations of wine collectors, who were more likely to trust the experts than become the experts.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same

    The one thing Millennials often talk about is wanting to have a personal connection to the wines they consume and collect. That is something any wine lover can relate to. And no matter what their calendar age, wine collectors universally want their wines to be protected and beautifully displayed. Enter Cable Wine Systems, maker of one of the finest quality metal wine racking systems on the market today. Our sleek, elegant, flexible wine racking systems accommodate the widest variety of bottle shapes and sizes and can also be assembled to meet your preferences with regards to bottle spacing and/or positioning. Now you can love your wine and admire it the way you want…at any age!

  • Modern wine systems vs traditional systems

    Do the words ‘wine cellar’ conjure up an image of damp, crumbling stone walls where inset bottles languished underground for hundreds of years? If so, welcome to the 21st century, where many wine cellars would be unrecognizable to our ancestors. First and foremost, wine collections aren’t always stored in a traditional, below ground cellar anymore!
    For people with modern sensibilities and tastes, wine must still be properly stored, but a collection will do just as well if not better with today’s modern racking systems than in the cellars of yore. All that matters, essentially, is the purchaser’s taste. Here we’ll deconstruct what constitutes a modern wine racking system versus a traditional one.

    Modern wine systems – simple, tasteful and minimalist

    Today’s modern wine storage systems are designed to put the focus on the wine – not on the perilous journey down crumbling stone steps. Modern wine cellars and the racking systems that define them are designed to have a clean, sleek aesthetic; straight lines and minimal materials are usually used, so that while the design elements are themselves striking in their simplicity, nothing really detracts from the labels. Bottles often appear to float in midair because unlike with traditional wine cellars, modern wine cellars often use metal, cable or acrylic materials that are virtually invisible against their backdrop.
    How will you know if a modern wine racking system is right for you? It all depends on your preference. Generally speaking, if you would describe the rest of your décor as striking, minimalistic, modern, clean, sleek or high style, and if you prefer smooth, shiny chrome and a black-and-white palette over hardwoods and natural hues, you may be interested in a modern system that lets the wine steal the show.

    Traditional wine systems – an elegant aesthetic

    Do you appreciate timeless pieces when it comes to art, furnishings and woodwork? A traditional wine racking system may be for you – but don’t be taken in by inexpensive, pre-assembled wooden racking, which does not stand the test of time and can actually detract from the luxury of your collection. Well-made traditional wine racking can be perfect for individuals who prefer a more classical wine storage look to enhance their home or establishment.
    Of course, regardless of whether your existing décor is modern or classic, you can opt for a traditional wine racking system if you are building a custom wine cellar which will stand apart from the rest of the space. In fact, a custom wine cellar with traditional wooden racking made of cherry, walnut, mahogany, maple or oak can be a very elegant way to display your wine collection. You may also choose to incorporate wood wine racking and classic, old–world features such stone walls and arches along with quality metal racking, which, because of its understated nature, tends to blend surprisingly well with fixtures from earlier times.

    Modern or traditional, the choice is yours

    Wine collecting is no longer the purview of a few elite individuals. For many, having the ability to display their wine collection, no matter its size, is important in this era of wine appreciation. Whatever way you choose to bring the wines you enjoy into your homes, it’s best to showcase it inventively, and with pride – it is a reflection of your tastes and personality, after all!
