Whining about Storage

We have racking for 500 bottles of wine in our wine pantry and a fridge for 50 more bottles of white wine. I have, in the past, considered this more than adequate. Whilst in Vegas I developed a case of wine storage envy. We went to the Aureole restaurant at the Mandalay Bay. You walk down a flight of stairs to enter and the stair case wraps around a massive four-storey tall wine tower. There are nearly 10,000 bottles stored in the tower. If that sounds excessive, that pales in comparison to the Vegas manner in which wine is taken from the tower; “Wine Angels” on harnesses abseil down the racks to fetch the desire bottle.

Below is a video showing the process.

I doubt that I would be allowed to install such a unit in our house; we only have two floors on our home, I can’t fill a 500 bottle cellar, and my wife might not be happy with the need for those two staff in the house.
