How long will the rack take to deliver?

It normally takes 10/14 days to be made and delivered from order date. These time frames can increase around the busy Christmas period.

Will the traditional wine rack be delivered pre-assembled?

Yes, all of our traditional wine racks are delivered pre-assembled. However, if your rack needs to be split (due to the large width or weight), then you will be required to connect your pre-assembled racks together.

Will the wine rack be delivered in one piece?

This all depends on the size of your rack, the space surrounding the area where the rack will be positioned and also the access to the sited position. If there's limited access to the sited position, the racks will have to be made in smaller widths then re-connected once in situ.

How many bottles will I get in the space?

If you already know the measurments of the space you have for your wine rack, find out how many bottles you'll be able to store using our Bespoke Wine Rack Calculator. Here you can calculate just how many bottles you can store within your space as well giving you the overal cost of the racking.

What is the measurement from 'wood to wood' on the traditional wine racks?

The measurement from 'wood to wood' is where the bottle will actually sit once stored within the rack. This is important to know if you have some large / irregular shaped bottles you're wishing to store.

  • Half Bottle Rack (1/2): 40mm
  • Standard Bottle Rack: 60mm
  • Champagne Bottle Rack: 70mm
  • Magnum Bottle Rack: 85mm

What is the measurement from 'metal to metal' on the traditional wine racks?

The measurement from 'metal to metal' is where the bottle will actually fit within the rack. This is good to know if you have some large / irregular shaped bottles you're wishing to store.

  • Half Bottle Rack (1/2): 75mm
  • Standard Bottle Rack: 95mm
  • Champagne Bottle Rack: 105mm
  • Magnum Bottle Rack: 120mm

How do I fix the rack to the wall?

The racks have 45 degrees steel fixing plates with pre-drilled holes in strategic places within the rear framework of each rack (normally near the top and bottom) which allow you to fix the rack to the wall.Below we have listed a step by step guide to help you with this:

  1. Position one of the racks against the wall where it is to be sited.
  2. Once in position, mark the wall through the pre-drilled holes in the fixing plates.
  3. Remove the rack from the sited position.
  4. Drill the required holes in the correct marks that you’ve just created. We would recommend using rawl plugs.
  5. Place the rack back into the original position.
  6. Screw through the holes in the fixing plates to attach the rack to the wall.

How do I connect the racks together?

If your rack has to be split, we usually do this vertically, as the strength of the racks is in its vertical as opposed to its horizontal. We don’t tend to split a rack horizontally because of the weight, but this is possible, as a last resort with the use of our wine rack metal connectors. The usual vertical split means that a rack 20 bottles wide, for example, would be constructed as a 9 bottle wide and a 10 bottle wide with the ‘missing’ vertical column re-connected in situ with purpose cut metal strips (provided) thus giving the required 20 bottle width.Below we have listed a step by step guide to help you with this, using the example above:

  1. Position one of the racks against the wall where it is to be sited.
  2. Once in position, mark the wall through the pre-drilled holes in the fixing plates.
  3. Remove the rack from the sited position.
  4. Drill the required holes in the correct marks that you’ve just created. We would recommend using rawl plugs.
  5. Place the rack back into the original position.
  6. Screw through the holes in the fixing plates to attach the rack to the wall.
  7. Position the next rack on the wall, leaving an approximate bottle space between the two racks.
  8. Tap in 3 metal connectors, 1 top, 1 bottom and 1 middle and then move the rack towards the already fixed rack to ensure the connections are as close as possible.
  9. Once in position, mark the wall through the pre-drilled holes in the fixing plates.
  10. Remove the metal connectors and rack from the sited position.
  11. Drill the required holes in the correct marks that you’ve just created. We would recommend using rawl plugs.
  12. Place the rack back into the original position.
  13. Screw through the holes in the fixing plates to attach the rack to the wall.
  14. Tap in the metal connectors to join the two racks together.

Please Note: We will provide the metal connectors to connect the racks together.

Can the racks take Champagne bottles?

As the size of Champagne bottles vary, our standard rack can take Moët & Chandon, Cristal, Ayala, Lanson, Piper Heidsceck and Pol Roger style bottles albeit quite tightly, whereas the Champagne rack is ideal for Bollinger, Krug and Dom Perignon style bottles as they’re slightly larger.

Can I suspend the rack from the wall?

We strongly suggest that you don’t suspend a traditional wine rack from the wall. The weight of the rack once full with wine will gradually over time pull the metal away from the fixed screws.

Do I need a plinth for the wine rack?

Not everybody requires a plinth, however we would suggest a plinth for the following reasons:

  1. Plinths are a good idea if the floor is dirty / damp, this will prevent the bottom row of bottles becoming dirty / damp.
  2. If the floor you’re positioning your rack on is uneven, the plinths have adjustable feet to make the rack level.
  3. Plinths also prevent the bottom row of bottles being accidently knocked / kicked.
  4. We feel that plinths compliment the aesthetics and look of the overall wine rack.
