* Designs range from the stackable to the expandable
* Wines should be stored horizontally, not vertically
* Each rack easily doubles as extra storage for just about anything
Whether you’re a novice collector or you just like buying in bulk, having a wine rack (or two) isn’t a terrible idea. Other than keeping your bottles of wine in neat order, you may actually be preserving some of them by storing them somewhat properly. That is, not in a vertical fashion so as to let the cork dry out. But if the thought hasn’t crossed your mind, or even if it has, you’re in the right place. (Don’t worry, there aren’t any kitschy ones where baby dragons are nursing on your bottle of wine because that does exist.)
1. Intriom Bamboo Wine Holder
This one is made from 100% eco-friendly organic bamboo, which means it’s durable. More importantly, it holds up to eight bottles. But you don’t have to use this as a wine rack. You could use it to store any number of kitchen tools, too. They call that versatility.
2. Sorbus 2-Tier Stackable Bamboo Wine Rack
This one won’t win any beauty pageants, but what it lacks in looks, it makes up for in expandability. Should you choose to store more than 12 bottles at any given time, you can continue to add to this stackable bamboo rack until it’s as high as you’d like.
3. Hive Originals Hexagon Wooden Wine Rack
As far as wine racks go, this one from Hive Originals is pretty cool looking. Its design-forward appeal also makes it versatile and interchangeable. The Hexagon Wooden Wine Rack ships in two pieces and can be arranged in a variety of ways or used separately. Best of all, it’s made from Paulownia, which means it’s going to be light and warp-resistant.
4. Birando Wave Wine Rack
Birando’s entry on this list is just plain wavy. The Wave Wine Rack’s modern design helps it blend into its surroundings whether it’s stocked full of wine (up to 12 bottles) or not. It also comes in a terra cotta color.
5. J.K. Adams 12 Bottle Driftwood Rack
Okay, this one is a little over $50, but if you’re looking for a rustic wine rack, this one from J.K. Adams is it. Made from an American hardwood with a driftwood finish, this one, like our other picks, is expandable should you need it to be. And it comes with a 100% lifetime product guarantee. A handsome addition to any home bar or kitchen.
