Wine rack

Any innovative ideas out there for a wine rack in a 19? 4 to 6 bottles preferably. Can devise something myself but would rather copy a successful installation. Searched the forums but couldn't find anything.

We just use wine bags in the closet for all our booze. Well, 'cept the Scotch, which has a good protective case on in it, and can go in alone.

We drive on a lot of gravel roads.
My solution was to not build a rack, and instead to wrap the wine bottles in work socks (pulled onto the bottle).
I did this because the wine can then be stored with the clothing. The sock and the clothing nestle together and protect the wine.
The number of Socks expand to match the quantity of wine needed for the trip - a very flexible system.

The advantage of something soft like the bags or socks, is that they are flexible dependant upon what you bring, and as you empty the bottles, frees space up for other use.

I am working on several designs, I have not come up with the perfect solution yet, it is more finding the best place to put it in the 19' rather that the design of the rack itself. Here is the rack I designed in my Boler

wine rack

Ian that looks great. I will have to wait until I get the unit and try to come up with something similar. I like the way the broom holders secure the neck of the bottle.

One has to remember, it is more about drinking the wine, then storing it.

I do very well understand the fun of doing cool custom mods though.

I use the shallow floor cabinets next to the wheel wells in our 21 with movable plastic dividers.

Don't worry it usually doesn't spend a lot of time in storage.

I hear you. I could never have a wine cellar, as whatever I seem to buy gets consumed before I get a chance to buy more.
