The 8 Best Wine Racks

The 8 Best Wine Racks

With that being said, increasing the size of your wine collection can be difficult if you don't have a dedicated wine cellar, which few people do. The good news is that there's a much more convenient and budget-friendly way to store your wine: in a wine rack! 

A wine rack will allow you to keep all of your bottles of wine in one place. This storage method also ensures that wine bottles are stored horizontally, meaning that the corks stay wet, preventing them from drying out and crumbling into the wine, which can affect the taste.

There are so many sizes and styles of wine racks. This means that it may take some research, but it's easy to find one in a capacity and design that suits you.

Below, we are going to be reviewing the 8 best wine racks money can buy. Hopefully, this will help you to make the best use of your storage space and keep your wine organized and fresh-tasting from now on. 

The 8 Best Wine Racks

OUR TOP PICK


One of the best, highest-quality wine racks on the market right now is the J.K. Adams Ash Wood Wine Rack. 

The wood used to construct this natural, rustic-looking wine rack is grown sustainably in Vermont, in the U.S.A. This means that the J.K. Adams wine rack is an environmentally-friendly choice. 

Perhaps our favorite feature of this wine rack is the modular construction, which allows you to build the rack in several ways depending on the amount of space you're working with or your aesthetic preferences.

Instructions are included that show you the different ways you can build the rack, including in a vertical stack or horizontal, multi-tiered formation. 

The J.K. Adams Ash Wood Wine Rack is available in multiple sizes. Starting at 12 bottles, you can also purchase this rack in 24-bottle, 40-bottle, 72-bottle, and 80-bottle capacities.

Whether you have a small selection of wine at home or a larger collection, you can buy this wine rack in a size that works perfectly for you. 

This rack is finished with teak oil, which not only makes the color and grain of the wood look richer and more aesthetically pleasing but also protects against water stains.

The recommended cleaning process for the wooden rack is wiping it down with a wet cloth and drying it thoroughly every time.

This means that although the cleaning process for the J.K. Adams wine rack is more intensive than some other racks on the market, at least the wood itself will not be damaged in the process. 

Pros

  • Sustainably grown wood - Eco-friendly 
  • Modular construction - Multiple assembly options
  • Teak oil finish - Protects against water stains
  • Available in 12-80 bottle storage - Suitable for various collection sizes 

Cons

  • Requires careful washing and drying - Not a low-effort wine rack

This wine rack from Tribesigns is one of the most practical and functional wine racks out there. The reason for this is that it also doubles as a wine glass storage and shelf storage space. 

In addition to the 20-bottle capacity of this rack, it provides space for you to hang your wine glasses conveniently from the top of the rack.

The shelves ensure that you also get additional storage for whatever you need. Whether you want to use these shelves to display your house plants or store extra crates of wine, this 4-tier rack is perfect. 

What initially drew us to this wine rack is the rustic design, which radiates elegance and class. Many wine racks on the market right now are highly functional, but not so nice to look at.

This is not the case with the Tribesigns 4-Tier Wine Bakers Rack, which you can proudly display anywhere in your home. 

The metal components of the otherwise wooden rack are finished with a powder coat, which helps to prevent scratch damage. 

Unfortunately, the slots for the wine bottles are relatively narrow. While they comfortably fit regular-sized wine bottles, larger bottles (pinot noir, for example), will not fit. 

Pros

  • Additional shelves and glass storage - Extra storage space 
  • 20-bottle capacity - Optimal storage
  • Powder coat finish - Enhances durability
  • Rustic design - Elegant and classic

Cons

  • Bottle slots on the smaller side - Not for larger wine bottles

BEST VALUE


For those who don't have an extensive wine collection but like to have up to a dozen bottles on hand for occasions, the Oceanstar 12-bottle bamboo wine rack is an excellent storage option. 

This wine rack is made from 100% bamboo, which is a sustainable material, so you don't have to worry about the environmental impact of your purchase. 

Oceanstar's wine rack is easy to assemble because all you need to do is slot the pieces together. The shelf pieces are curved, which maximizes your use of space and also ensures that the bottles are held securely in place. 

Unfortunately, if you simply follow the instructions for assembly with no adjustments, the rack is unlikely to be very stable. We recommend adding a small amount of glue to the joints between the individual pieces to ensure greater stability. 

Pros

  • 100% bamboo - Sustainable material 
  • Slip-in construction - Easy to assemble
  • Curved shelves - Secure and space-saving

Cons

  • Not very stable - May need some glue

DECOMIL's 72-bottle stackable modular wine rack is perfect for people who like to have plenty of wine options available at any time.

However, it also comes in other sizes, including a tiny 5-bottle version and 9-bottle, 12-bottle, and 36-bottle options. 

The 72-bottle version uses a stackable modular construction with a slot-in assembly process, so it's easy to put together and very stable. 

Thanks to the bamboo material used in the construction of this wine rack, it's a sustainable and eco-friendly purchase.

The only downside is that the bamboo is unfinished, so it's not as resistant to staining and other forms of wear compared to other wine racks. 

Pros

  • Bamboo material - Eco-friendly 
  • 5-72 bottle capacities - Widely compatible
  • Slot-in assembly - Easy to construct

Cons

  • Unfinished - Not the most wear-resistant

The Sorbus 3-Tier Stackable Wine Rack is a great wine rack if you only typically store up to 12 bottles of wine at a time and want a space-saving storage system for them. 

Sorbus's 3-tier wine rack construction is made up of 3 stackable shelves, each with the capacity of up to 4 bottles.

If you don't need all the shelves, you can remove one to make your wine rack even more space-efficient. This is easy thanks to the interlocking design. 

This wine rack is made of a sturdy metal material that will not warp easily. Therefore, this is a durable and strong wine rack. 

Unfortunately, the problem with this wine rack is more a problem with the advertising. Many customers have bought this rack on the assumption that it is 11.75 inches tall, when in fact, it is 14 inches, which can cause issues if you haven't planned on the extra height. 

Pros

  • 3-tier construction - Stackable 
  • Up to 12 bottles - Flexible storage
  • Metal material - Strong and durable

Cons

  • Taller than advertised - 14-inch height

PAG's 23-bottle arched freestanding wine rack is a beautiful, decorative, but also functional wine rack for any space in your home. 

This freestanding, arched wine rack is both practical and elegant. It doesn't need to be mounted to anything, and it's easy to assemble, so you can start using your new, classy wine rack in no time! 

The PAG Arched Freestanding Wine Rack is made of metal pipes, so it's robust and very durable. The durability is further enhanced by the powder coat finish, which means it will be more difficult to scratch your wine rack. 

However, this is another wine rack that isn't suitable for large, low-shouldered wine bottles such as pinot noir. If you primarily buy wine in regular, slim bottles, though, it's perfect. 

Pros

  • Metal pipe construction - Highly durable 
  • Powder coat finish - Wear-resistant
  • Freestanding arch design - Elegant and convenient

Cons

  • Not for low-shouldered bottles - Some storage limitations

This 96-bottle stackable modular wine rack from Smartxchoices is ideal for people with larger wine collections that need to be organized effectively. 

The pine wood material used to make this wine rack is high-quality and makes for durable construction. 

You don't need any tools to put this wine rack together because the pieces simply slot together.

However, it's important to be careful when loading wine into this rack because some fittings are looser than others.

This doesn't significantly impact the overall stability, but some areas are sturdier than others, so it's best to bear this in mind. 

If you don't quite need all 96 storage slots, you can also buy the 72-bottle option, available through the same link. 

Pros

  • Pine wood material - High-quality and durable
  • 96 and 72-bottle options - Flexible
  • No-tools assembly - Easy construction

Cons

  • Some loose fittings - Inconsistent stability

HB Design Co.'s small, 9-bottle countertop wine rack is perfect if you keep just a few bottles of wine in your home, but want them to be organized in a practical, elegant way. 

This is a honeycomb-style wine rack with hexagonal slots, so it's decorative and interesting to look at. 

More than that, HB Design Co. has used powder-coated iron to make this wine rack as durable as possible, so you don't need to worry about wear and tear. 

While most of the storage slots are narrow, meaning that they are only suitable for slim bottles, there are two open spaces at the top for larger bottles such as pinot noir or champagne. 

Pros

  • Hexagon slots - Unique and decorative
  • Powder-coated iron - Very durable
  • Larger top slots - Works for larger bottles 

Cons

  • Most slots are narrow - Best for slim bottles
