During the planning process of your residential wine cellar, allot for wine racks that hold abnormally sized bottles. The average size of a wine bottle is 75 cl. However, larger bottles have become more common and actually store wine better than smaller bottles. A good rule of thumb is to store four to six bottles of your best wine in magnum-sized wine bottles, which are among the largest available. Do not purchase bottles larger than magnum-size because they are difficult to handle and store. Flexible wine racks can accommodate your differently sized wine bottles. Also, remember to group your wines by size for convenience.
