What is a Wine Rack?
A wine rack is a storage unit designed to hold wine bottles. Wine racks are available in a variety of different materials and shapes, depending on the user's preference and needs. A standard wine rack will be large enough to hold 6 or more bottles, and commonly have holes or slots to fit each bottle.
Wine bottle racks are designed to hold standard 75cl wine bottles, so the holes generally need to be no larger than 110mm to accommodate these.

While most wine racks are available pre-built to a domestic market, custom made racking is commonly employed by wine makers, bars, restaurants, and private wine collectors. Bespoke wine racks are offered for unique spaces where a large number of bottles needs to be stored. Custom racks will often be plainly decorated as they are simply used with the intention of storage, perhaps for ageing a wine.
Collectors will often use custom built racking for a wine cellar. The advantage of storing wine bottles in a wine cellar is the reduced risk of changing temperatures and humidities found in other rooms which could affect the delicate tastes and aromas of wine.
Domestic Wine Rack Example
Domestic Wine Racks:
Domestic wine racks will usually hold around 6 bottles (though this can vary widely), and can come in almost any shape and size. Because domestic users will normally consume wine relatively quickly, there is less need to worry about the storage conditions of the bottles. Wine racks will often be placed in the dining room or kitchen, making them ideal for easy access when hosting a dinner party.
Wine racks are available in table-top, wall-mounted, and free standing varieties, further increasing the appeal to the preference of the end user. Wine racks are often bought as a piece of home decor as well as a functional item.
