Wine racks are versatile wine storage solutions because they can be installed in a variety of locations.

Whether you would like to add a wine rack to your kitchen to organize a small collection or are looking to add wine racks to a future wine cellar, there are many ways to get creative with wine rack placement. Check out our suggestions below for some fresh ideas.

Wine should be stored in a dark location where it will not be exposed to direct UV rays or bright lights. Additionally, the location should be free from unnecessary vibrations such as constant foot traffic. Lastly, consider the weight of your wine collection. If you plan to install a wine cellar on the 2nd floor of your home, can the floor withstand the weight of your wine plus the wine rack?
