Wooden Boxed Wine Dispenser

Okay, so technically, this one isn’t actually a wine rack…but it was just too cool not to include in this roundup! If you enjoy some boxed wine every once in a while, or on the regular, why not serve it up in one of these visually stunning wooden boxes?! Plus, you even have the option to personalize them!

Mounted Wine Bottle & Glass Rack

If you’re looking for something with a touch or rustic chic, this mounted wine bottle and glass rack would be the perfect addition to any kitchen or dining room! It’s a great option if you’re only beginning to grow your wine collection, since it only holds eight bottles, but you’ll love having your wine glasses easily accessible! There’s some wines you should always use a stemmed wine glass for, but I love that this option leaves room for you to display your cute, stemless collection, too!

40 Bottle Solid Wood Mounted Wine Rack

This is a great option for someone who’s outgrown their current wine rack, and looking for a better storage solution. This solid wood, mounted wine rack can hold a whopping 40 bottles of wine. I love this look, but since the bottles protrude out at an angle, I wouldn’t recommend this one if you’ve got little ones or rambunctious furry friends! 


The Ikea Wine Rack Hack

If none of these options are speaking to you, alternatively you could try my Ikea Wine Rack Hack! It’s my favorite furniture item in my entire apartment. And the most commented on! With simple wine rack inserts, they’re easy to make and look beautiful.

After scouring the internet for weeks and failing to find a wine rack that fit my requirements, I finally decided the best course of action was to make my own… sorta.

A Designer Wine Rack Look on a Budget

By converting my Ikea Kallax shelves into wine racks, I was able to get a designer wine case look at a fraction of the price, and with very little effort. Since I live in an apartment, I couldn’t completely DIY this (lack of tools and workspace), but it was easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy thanks to products already on the market and a little modification.

For this project, it was important that my wine case look aesthetically pleasing, since I knew it would be in the background of a lot of photos, Instagram stories, and hopefully, somewhere I wanted to shoot videos or take conference calls in front of. 

The wine rack also needed to hold at least 100 bottles (my finished version holds 144, but the design could hold up to 192). AND it couldn’t break the bank. Since I already owned the Ikea Kallax shelves, the total cost of this project was around $90… Which, in the scheme of wine racks and looking at dollars per bottle stored, $90 to store 144 wine bottles is an insanely good deal.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a wine storage cabinet called?

The answer depends on a few conditions. If the cabinet is climate-controlled space, technically, it could be referred to as a wine cellar. Although most of the time you’ll find a wine cellar in…well, the cellar, they can be located anyway in your home. If the “cabinet” is more of an appliance, that would be a wine fridge. 

What type of wood is a wine rack made of?

Most wine racks are made from redwood or mahogany — both of which are solid, sturdy choices to house your wine collection!

How do you store wine in a wooden box?

If you’re currently working with a wooden box set up while shopping for the perfect wooden wine rack, you can lay the bottles down and store them in a cool dark place!
