This under $10k wine room racking was a small space next a bar area ,just large enough to allow the clients to display their small collection.
Case storage, display row for special bottles and horizontal bottle storage on wood hands allow viewing of bottle labels and for space on the counter to decant a bottle for the evening or gathering.

The horizontal display is both functional an artistically appealing way to display the bottle in particular array or pattern using the custom shaped wood holders that can match or contrast the back veneered wall.
