Metal Wine Racks
Designing wine cellars with metal racking generally means dividing the space into 13-15” columns. Rosehill carries a wide variety of metal wine racks and wine racking systems from single bottle holders to triple bottle racks and point of purchase displays for retail spaces.
The wall peg wine racking system: a recent trend in wine racking is the peg system, which is when two metal pegs are placed in a cellar wall a few inches apart to hold wine bottles perpendicular or parallel to the wall. This modern wine racking shows off the bottle necks or labels and allows the bottles to appear as if floating on the wall. When boards are used they can include acrylic, stainless steel, black or colored facings. Back lighting is also often used with the peg system to great effect.

The Modular Redwood Redrack is the least expensive kit option and it’s a perfect choice for temporary residences but also works when someone wants to keep more money for their wine collection as opposed to their racks. It is available in stackable heights. In designing, you don't need to use the cut out templates, you could also just to a quick sketch of what you were thinking, and we'd be happy to review.
