We don't have a cellar full of wine, but we do like to buy one or two mixed cases at a time to save money. (Nearly every wine shop will give at least a 10% discount when you buy a full case.) Between these mixed cases, and the wine we buy for cooking, we often have at least a couple dozen bottles on hand at any time, and no good place to store it. So this wine rack from Williams-Sonoma looks very appealing right now! We really like this slim wine rack. It holds 36 bottles, which is plenty for our own modest collection. It's handsome enough to sit out in the kitchen or the dining room, which is where we like to store our wine. But the main thing we really like about this rack is that it can also double as a butcher block island or sideboard. That is really useful for small spaces.
This isn't suitable for long-term storage, of course, since the bottles are exposed to light. But for a regular rotating collection of house wine and cooking wine, this could be the perfect solution.
