How many bottles would you like to store in your cellar?
This a key issue, especially if you want to age your wines. Ageing is a long-term project and it is to be assumed that your collection of bottles will increase over the years. You therefore need to choose a model whose capacity matches your current requirements, and, just as importantly, those in the longer term, i.e. in 2, 5 or even 10 years.
As you can see, the question of the cellar’s capacity is not a decision to be taken lightly and needs to be carefully considered. The capacities in terms of bottles listed on our site are based on traditional 75 cl Bordeaux bottles, and a minimum number of shelves.
For a collection that includes different styles or sizes of bottle, the capacity will be around 20% less. Additional shelves are available in the Accessories section.
Note: adding extra shelves slightly reduces your cellar’s storage capacity (by the equivalent of one row of bottles).
