There are plenty of wine rack designs to choose from today, from metal to solid wood and wood veneers. Watch for high-quality materials in any designs, and the wine rack construction should be top-notch. For example, bins should have solid sides constructed from single pieces of wood. Why? Because they are stronger! If you want to store hundreds of bottles of wine in a rack or bin, that wine will weigh quite a bit, and some racks with shoddier construction may not be up to the stress of that weight. Your wine is an investment and a joy, don't let it be ruined by a rack that isn't up to the challenge of your collection!
