As Billy Joel says, “a bottle of red, a bottle of white, perhaps a bottle of rosé instead?” It’s OK to want a variety of wine in your house so you can pair with your moods and your meals. The issue, however, is where to store them all! While an in-home wine cellar probably isn’t an option for most of us, a countertop storage rack is a good compromise. It can safely, seamlessly and stylishly store and display all your best bottles for an easy view of—and easier access to—whatever you want to uncork each night.
