What makes VintageView different to other wine racks?
With a choice of one, two or three bottles deep, and nine or twelve bottles high, you have an exceptionally flexible and effective way to store wine bottles in nearly any space, regardless of height, depth or width limitations.
Apart from the options in the standard range, there are also racks to hold Magnum size bottles, a presentation style rack and even a mounting frame for situations where wall mounting is difficult; all of which can be combined in ways only limited by your imagination.
What are the racks made of?
It is also possible to have the racks produced in custom colours (subject to extra cost). As they are tube steel they can of course also be cut to fit into different heights.
By combining any of these six basic racks, you can cover almost any number of bottles and store your wine collection in the most efficient and effective way.
It’s the only wine storage solution that easily fits into narrow spaces, like hallways and under staircases, while still being able to expand to perfectly store larger collections.
Can I store as many bottles with VintageView wine racks as with traditional racks?
Apart from utilising the 1 or 2 deep racks for narrower spaces, you can also interlace our 3-bottle racks (call for details – see pdf below) and increase your storage capacity to as much as 11 bottles per square foot.
Of course all this comes with the fact that your bottles are now being displayed, label forward, not just stored!

Is installation difficult with these racks?
There are six pre-drilled mounting holes for fasteners on each set of racks, three holes per side. The top fastener has the most pull out force (horizontal pressure away from the wall) so when installing wall strips ALWAYS make sure the top fastener is solid.

What are the general installation guidelines?
Standard bottles [750ml] average 30cm in length – for this size bottle the strips are mounted at 19cm apart (starting a minimum of 7cm distance from your first perpendicular wall) and then 14cm between sets of racks. Each complete rack therefore requires approximately 33cm of space, side-to-side, for installation with standard bottles.
Note: All wine bottles vary in size: make sure to confirm your bottle measurements before installing your VintageView wine racks.

Can I fix my racks to a plasterboard wall?
The most common and effective fixing is the spring toggle (or butterfly) anchor, which is designed to spread out into the cavity behind the wall, making a secure support for heavier items. All our racks now include 2 of these for securing the top holes, with additional spiral anchors for the others.
