Cool Idea: Lockers as Wine Storage

I recently made a stop by the Roshambo Winery tasting room in Sonoma and noticed a peculiar thing. Keeping with the winery's offbeat aesthetic, a gang of vintage school lockers had been used as vino storage to create a retro, industrial feel. As it turns out, the lockers are the ideal depth to house a stack of wine bottles. Better yet, each shelf and locker allows for compartmentalization, so you can keep your sauv blanc separate from your cabernet. And if you'd like to keep the good stuff safe from the kids, you can always use a lock and key. Try salvage shops and 1st Dibs for vintage lockers. Or stop by your local school and see if they've got any to spare.

I think for a winery that's moving high volumes of wine around, it would be acceptable (not really my taste though). But as far as home storage is concerned, it would be pretty difficult to keep organized. You can't see the labels for one. And unless you have entire cases of wine, you couldn't really put more than one varietal or winery in each locker, since you can't get to the bottom bottles without disturbing the ones at the top.
