Teetering Wine Rack

Tilted Wine Rack

9. Teetering Wine Rack – At first glance our “teetering” wine racks just look super-cool.We admit that they are conversation pieces but what most folks don’t know is that horizontal wine racks like these are the best solution to storing wines long term.This is because a horizontal wine rack keeps the cork properly moist while allowing any sediment to settle down the sides of the bottle.

This unique tilting design prevents spoilage when you go to pour your best vintage. So our teetering bottle holders not only make a playful gift to showcase your best but also help age wines better.
