Wine cellar

I see this thread is old, but I wanted to add my two cents. We found these great little StorVino wine crates at The Containter Store. You can use a wine cork to connect them together for less rattling, but in our 27'FB they fit perfectly under the bed here with no movin' around at all.



There's another photo and more info here: Airstream Style: Fun and Function - Riveted

We have two in the front on their sides as shown, and two behind that standing upright for reserves.

We have a 2010 25' FB Flying cloud. The front queen bed lifts and one corner has a space that justs fits a 12 bottle cardboard box if you cut it up and make it 2x6 instead of 3x4 bottles. being under the bed it isn't exposed to extremes of temp change and stores our cab very well.

What a Lush!

Wine makes me ill, so no need for storage (but love some of these ideas).

I never drank anything until I purchased the FaN. Since then, I have developed a fondness for gin. I don't know what this means -- maybe buying a trailer emboldens the urge to cut loose and relax a bit?

I keep my gin in a little plastic tote in the shower. I guess this is my tribute to "bathtub gin."

The *hic* Airstream *hic* lifestyle *hic*!

I built my wine rack above the microwave. It holds 5 bottles. I removed the cabinet top and split it and hinged it near the back. I added 3" of oak to the front and sides for extra depth and installed a floor slightly below the original top of the cabinet. I put in bottle separators and covered the area with felt.

I put an opening in the rear, non-hinged portion of the lid to gain acccess to the outlet and TV plate.

Hi FaN,

I am quite fond of gin as well and have developed a particular fondness for Hendrick's. In my opinion it makes, hands down, the best martini ever! I have also totally abandoned the vermouth in my martini.

Best,

John S.

JD, atta boy. I'm still working on my first bottle of Beefeaters, but will try Hendrick's next. I like gin and tonic or a Tom Collins.

Cheers!

Cheers indeed! Hendrick's, in my humble opinion, is best suited for martinis. If your preferene is for G&T's or Tom Collinses, my suggestion may not be optimal. On the other hand, if you develop a taste for martinis, then Hendricsks will likely be your friend.

Enjoy!,

JD

We-who-love-living-small always have space considerations.

We use those soft, cushiony carry bags for wine, six-packs or whatever to carry wine, a bottle of Jameson's, beer, etc.

They lay flat under a bench and tuck into odd spaces under the sink and counter, etc.

Not only do they keep bottles unbroken and quiet, as the bags empty they collapse in to take up very little additional space.
