April 11th, 2011

Make no mistake in choosing the perfect wine rack for your home!

Ah, wine racks.

We love them as an essential wine accessory, and we take pleasure in building and designing them to be able to store your wine properly and efficiently.

Whether your wine collection is growing or you just made a run to the grocery sale and found a couple solid bottles on sale, wine racks are a must-have.  They make great eye candy for any home, not to mention become a conversation piece!  With the variety of wine rack styles to choose from, you will be faced with different styles, choices and how to design your wine cellar when purchasing a wine rack.

To help you determine which wine rack best fits your needs, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite wine rack designs:

Vintner Wine Racks

Perfect for people with expanding wine collections, cost effective and efficient, Vintner wine racks are stackable or modular wine racks that are a wonderful option for those growing their collection.

The Vintner Series offers a wide variety of racking options, along with the ability to mix and match racking heights and styles. This wine rack collection was designed to accommodate wine bottles that are 3 – 3 1/2″ in diameter.

With our full depth wine racks, the best part about the Vintner wine racks is you can create a seamless floor-to-ceiling look with their attractive molding options.

You may be starting small today, but in a matter of months or years, you’d be surprised at how much your collection may grow! This is what makes stackable and modular racks perfect: they allow you to add on more racks as you go! Why, they’re a favorite of many wine aficionados who are building wine cellars and wine rooms!

Designer Wine Racks

How would you like wine racks that offer a custom look, yet are just right on the budget? The Designer Series wine racks offer the ultimate blend of quality, cost, and craftsmanship. Bringing together the best portions of custom racks and the affordability of a mass produced item, Designer wine racks are your perfect definition of beauty on a budget.

Created with excellent attention to detail, these racks boast of:

• accommodating standard wine and champagne bottles
• accommodating additional wine storage above racking
• being the first line of wine rack kits with wine display rows, including the curved corners
• bottles being cradled on two rails that are cut with beveled ends and rounded edges which ensure the labels will not tear when the bottles are removed

Surely, you couldn’t resist anything designer that comes in such package in such an affordable price range!

WineMaker Series

Because stackable/modular wine racks such as the Vintner Series are so popular these days, they were made even more cost-effective to accommodate those with tight budgets. And this is why the WineMaker Series was born. These wine racks have all the same options as the Vintner, and is just as space efficient, visually appealing, and cost-effective.

The only differences are, the WineMaker Series wine racks have a reduced depth compared to the Vintner Series, and the beveling the ends of individual bottle rails was not implemented. No worries though, as the rails still have the same round-over to ensure the bottle labels do not tear as you slide the bottle in-and-out.

Because they’re stackable, you’re basically free to play around with ceiling height configurations! Just like Vintner, the molding options will allow you to have a custom look and grow your racks all the way to the ceiling. With lots of wine racking styles and wine display options at a more affordable price point, it really is a smart choice!

Traditional Redwood Wine Racks

Who could resist beautiful wood wine racks? When it comes to the best wood choice for wine cellars, we think nothing beats Redwood. Being such a durable, exquisite wood, you’d think they’re pretty expensive right? Wrong.

These Redwood wine racks allow you to enjoy the custom look of premium clear redwood without the custom price! Yes, they’ve been made more affordable as well, allowing you to freely combine and mix to create your own personalized custom home wine cellar. Here at Wine Cellar Innovations, all our Redwood is SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) Certified. This forest certification standard is based on principles that promote sustainable forest management.

Nothing beats the performance characteristics of Redwood — resistance to shrinking, warping, and checking in addition to durability. It’s no wonder why it’s a popular choice for wine cellars! All Redwood wine cellar and rack components come in easy to assemble kits – offering effective wine storage.

Rustic Pine Wine Racks

Into rustic beauty? Then Pine Wine Racks are for you. Quality and strength are two of the strongest qualities of Pine wood, and just like Redwood wine racks, you can mix and match various racks to create your personalized wine cellar! All wine rack kits are 72” high, 8 3/4” deep and are easy to assemble.

The rustic pine wine racks collection can accommodate wine bottles that are 2 ¾” – 3 1/4” in diameter. They are also structurally designed to accommodate additional wine storage above racking, so you don’t have to worry about adding more bottles to your collection.

From single to 6-column wine racks, to pretty solid diamond bin racks to wood wine storage racks, the Rustic Pine Wine Rack collection makes for pretty décor in your home to show off your wine bottles.

Metal Wine Racks

So you love wood, but you want something edgy and contemporary. Well, metal wine racks are great for your home! They are extremely decorative, and help you store your wine more aesthetically.

Metal wine racks take up less space and are usually modular. They are also usually lighter, depending on the design. We think they fit stylishly into more places in your home, and the thin frames that these racks are composed of allow for more storage and space! Indeed, they are perfect for tight and limited spaces. Since these types of wine racks are adjustable, you can size and position them to fit your needs!

If your home is the modern contemporary or minimalist, metal wine racks with elegant clean lines such as the Vintage View wine racks and Black Lattice wine racks would definitely look great!

Table Top Wine Racks

For decorative flair and a functional workspace, pretty table top wine racks are your best bet. They may be limited in terms of size, but they offer effective wine storage!  Why, you get two benefits – wine storage and work space– for the price of one!

Table top small wine racks are perfect for wine collections that will most likely be accessed and enjoyed right away. Can you see yourself often gathering friends together for some wine tasting? Wine tasting tables that double as wine racks are your perfect companion…just imagine what great times and great conversations you can have with this Redwood wine table or this exquisite oak wine bar!

Small Wine Racks

If you’re thinking of storing your wine in a closet, a narrow hallway, under the stairs or just atop your kitchen counter, small wine racks are the perfect choice! Perfect for small spaces, these racks give you ample storage room.

They may be small, but never underestimate the durability and functionality of small wine racks, which are perfect for corners, counters or a small part of your empty wall. The kitchen counter is the most popular destination of small wine racks, and they’re perfect for those who buy a bottle or two every now and then for immediate consumption. Take this stackable 12-bottle wine rack, for example. Form and function in small rack!

Economical and space-saving, a small wine rack may just be what your cozy home needs. Check out more options here.
