The rack is designed on a slight upward slant from the horizontal line to make sure the corks stay put and keep the wine moist and succulent and where it belongs. Trapped air in the empty space between the wine and the cork will foster a gradual and slower maturation and oxidation process ensuring that your wines retain their flavour, bouquet and always taste their best. The traditional style of these sturdy racks are a great addition to private homes as well as restaurants and bars. The rack comes unassembled but the clear and simple instructions make putting it together a snap. You can start small by filling it with just a few bottles. As your wine collection grows, this rack can accommodate more bottles. When assembled the wine racks are 80cm x 23.5cm x 80cm (L x W x H) with a storage capacity of up to seventy two bottles. This stylish wine rack will add a touch of sophistication and pizzazz to any recreation room, kitchen or bar. No matter where you decide to place it, this wine storage unit will not go unnoticed at any party or gathering. Keep all your wine in one convenient and attractive storage unit!
