A wine rack is a permanent storage fixture that can be included in a cabinetry run to provide a convenient and secure location to store wine bottles. The primary requirement for wine storage is that most wines should be kept on their side with a slight incline to keep the cork fully moistened by the liquid. However, the design of wine racks can vary widely, offering a range of creative storage solutions.
Some wine rack designs feature concealed storage within a cabinet, with permanent racks built into standard base or wall cabinets. Other designs incorporate glass into the cabinet doors to showcase the wine. For those who want to store wine at a specific temperature, there are refrigerated cases that can be concealed in base cabinets. Even the simplest wine racks can be effective, consisting of a few circular cutouts in which bottles can be placed.
