Point taken, but I guess it depends on what you're aiming for. We don't drink a lot of wine (wife hates it), but I do enjoy a glass now and then and like to have some on hand when we have guests. I prefer the cooler over the 'display' for that reason. If your home is more public than mine, maybe a rack of some sort would be more suitable....
Point taken as well; I use wine a lot of time for cooking though and just end up drinking the rest of the bottle with the meal. My girlfriend isn't big on tomato sauce, so I usually make pasta with some sort of a variation on a white wine sauce... as for meats, I usually use red for "pan deglazing." You know what they say, if you don't drink it, don't cook with it.
I realized the other day that I consume an unusual amount of garlic. That's good for you ya know!
