Whether you are a wine connoisseur, or a casual lover of wine, you likely have a collection of wine glasses. As you may know, having a selection of wine glasses is suggested for drinking different types of wine: Champagne, Bordeaux, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Burgundy – there is a glass specifically made to suit each wine variety.
Because of the quantity involved, you may also need a particular place to store all of these glasses. Wine glass racks are the nicest and most elegant way to display your beautiful collection of wine glasses of all shapes and sizes.
Of course, deciding which rack to buy is no easy task. There are so many different types of wine glass racks. Some will hold a large collection of wine glasses, some hold a small collection of glasses, and some will even hold entire bottles of wine with your glasses.
Pricing varies. You may be able to find an inexpensive wine glass rack for under $50, but depending on the style, material and size of the wine rack, that price can triple. Wine glass racks can be made of metal or wood, and can be wall mounted, under the counter, or hanging or other styles .
1. First, figure out where you would like to place your glass rack. Every room in your home likely has somewhat of a different style. Pick a glass rack that fits your décor. Also, we suggest placing your wine glass rack close to where you will be drinking your wine, or perhaps close to where you will be washing your glasses.
2. An important consideration when searching for wine glass racks is durability. The price alone is not a clear indicator of how well a rack is made. Look at the design elements such as the thickness of the wood or construction material, quality of craftsmanship & attention to detail.
3. You may also want to clarify the dimensions of the rack and spacing available for the glasses. Sometimes the cheaper racks are often not thoughtfully designed – Bordeaux or Burgundy glasses may not fit as easily – be sure to investigate prior to purchasing.
