Wine Rack Ideas

Wine is a popular alcoholic beverage in many homes, and if you are one that likes to have more than one bottle in your home at any given time, finding where to store your collection of wine can be difficult if your don’t already have a wine storage rack built-in somewhere in your kitchen. The nice thing is, you don’t have to. There are plenty of wine rack storage ideas you can create to house your wine collection and we’ll share some of those ideas with you.


Riddling is actually something that stems way back to the 1800’s, used generally in France with the development of Champagne. It is a wooden rack with holes cut at an angle so that champagne bottles can be stored at an angle to allow for any sediment to be brought to the mouth of the bottle. A riddler was responsible for turning the bottles every day, just a few degrees and one riddler was able to handle about 40,000 bottles a day. These same racks can store your wine bottles. It is said that wine should be stored at a 45 degree angle so the wine is always in contact with the cork to keep air from getting into the bottle. You can find neat looking riddling racks at different online stores, or maybe create one yourself if you’re a DIY kind of person and you can find out how at Ehow.

Milk Crate

You might not have one of these just laying around, but you may be able to find one at an old antique shop, flea market or thrift store, but those old milk crates from back in the day when milk was delivered to your home are not only cool looking, but they can be upcycled to use as a wine bottle holder. If you come across an old milk crate, give it a little facelift if you need to, and find the perfect spot in your kitchen to give it a home. You might have the perfect spot on a wall where you can hang it, or anywhere it will get noticed. It can hold up to 12 bottles and create a conversation piece for them as well.

Pallet rack holder

Pallets come in handy for so many things, and if you are a creative type, turning that pallet wood into a nice wine rack can give your wine a home, and a unique way to store it, too. At HGTV, you can see just how beautiful a reclaimed wood pallet can be for a wine holder. Each one will hold up to eight bottles and underneath the rack, you can hang up to 9 wine glasses. That’s a good number of bottles for the average wine drinker and collector.

Repurposed dresser

Do you have an old dresser that is just sitting there looking for a purpose? Why not upcycle it into ta beautiful piece for your kitchen and make it your wine holder. Removing the drawers or front doors of the dresser will give you the space to add wine cubbies. You can give the dresser a vintage distressed look, or upcycle it to be a beautiful piece that matches your kitchen decor theme. If you don’t have an actual dresser, look for any small piece of furniture that can be molded into a wine holder by adding some wine cubbies and you have a beautiful wine rack, created by you.

Flashing and twine

Metal flashing has more than one purpose, and that is as a wine holder. You can wrap metal flashing with twine and make a unique looking wine holder that has a bit of a rustic look that can sit on your kitchen counter or other furniture piece where it can be displayed and admired. You can create a a holder that holds any number of bottles, but for a good sized collection, design a holder that stores up to 16 bottles and you have a beautiful holder that’s a real show piece.
