You’ll want to consider aesthetics, price, durability and wine culture when you make your wine rack choice. Wood wine racks are often seen as more rustic and less expensive but they may not be as durable or modern looking as metal wine racks which can be customized to suit your decor. Glass wine racks are heavily influenced by wine culture these days and you’ll find wine goblets among their many options. Ceramic wine racks have become popular for their intricately designed pieces of art that give off a rustic charm-these can also be handmade!

Wine is often considered a luxury; wine racks can be no exception. There are several material options to consider when searching for wine storage that suits your needs and decor, such as wood, metal, glass or ceramic wine racks.

Wood: natural yet simple look, has a certain old world charm that some people prefer. Often the most affordable option.

Metal: often seen as more modern, can be customized in colors/styles to suit your decor. Less likely to give off the rustic charm that some people prefer in a wine rack

Ceramic: Handmade options are becoming more popular. Often intricate designs and color choices make these racks look like real pieces of art. More likely to give off the rustic charm that some people prefer in wine racks

Glass: Heavily influenced by wine culture these days, wine goblets are becoming more popular and wine chalices provide an elegant look when decorated with engraving.

Some people will buy a variety of material options to suit their decor and for added flexibility in using the wine storage space. Other people may only want one type or perhaps favor one wine rack material over another due to past experiences or personal preference.

Where do wine bottles rest?

The wine rack design can affect where wine bottles have to rest, as they may need a certain type of support. Flat-bottomed wine racks are a better option if wine is resting on its own base, because this prevents wine from wine wine. Round-bottomed wine racks are designed where wine bottles do not rest on their base, but wine wine support is still important to prevent wine damage or loss of wine cork.
