Types of wine racking
Wood – The majority of our clients have bespoke joinery grade timber racking catering for box storage, bin storage and individual bottle storage according to predicted bottle type.Glass – Bonded glass shelves are a real design and display statement. A lot of our clients have a double glazed viewing wall into the cellar too.
Metal Display – metal can be very effective for display racks in the wine cellar.
Metal Utility – an excellent utility solution for a really large wine cellar or if you have a back room to your wine cellar for large stocks of every day drinking wine or wines that are just not ready. Metal utility racking used in this way can be very cost effective and quick to construct.
Stone – York stone shelving is a traditional solution and looks magnificent. It adds thermal mass, as the stone is heavy, as well as humidity stabilising effects, as it is porous.
Concrete – Popular in Europe, concrete stacking systems are ideal for large areas where an industrial look is required, and also for use in passive wine cellars (such as the winemaker’s cave) as their thermal mass helps to preserve the temperature around the bottles. They do however take up a lot of space and are probably not ideal for modest basement wine rooms.
