Racks - The build quality
the strength of steel with the subtlety of wood, the production
of wine racks from our wooden wine rack and metal wine rack
designs is carried out at our factory in Ilkeston, Derbyshire,
England (UK) from galvanised steel and high quality pine,
which can be left natural or finished in a mahogany or oak
stain. The wine racks can be treated with a cuprinol wood
preservative which is suitable option for a wet wine cellar or
a wine cellar which has a high humidity. We manufacture
our own plinths from stainless steel or wood. Our wooden
plinths options have useful adjustable plastic legs which lift our
wine racks clear of the floor. This is a design feature option
which is particularly useful in situations such as uneven
floors and damp wine cellars. This further demonstrates
the attention to detail within the design and manufacture
of our wine rack products.
A sturdy shelf is required to support wall mounted wine
racks. We also have a high quality wine rack cabinet range.

Racks - The options
customers requiring a more decorative look to their wine
racks, they can be made using solid brass or stainless steel
instead of galvanised steel. Our wine racks can also be
made from solid oak or mahogany. Whatever the combination
of materials chosen, our wine racks are designed for both
strength and durability. A range of stock size wine racks
are available in one, two, three and four dozen sizes.
design and manufacture wine storage bins. Each bin holds
24 wine bottles in four triangular segments of 6 wine bottles,
and these units are stackable.
We also produce a range of Wine Cabinets manufactured from
Oak, Mahogany and Pine which hold between 12 and 36 bottles.
There are 4 main factors to consider when deciding on the best cellar storage for your wines. The most critical is temperature, which ideally should be between 10 and 14 degrees centigrade.
Variations in atmosphere can occur depending on the time of year, i.e. winter and summer.
The humidity is important as if it is too low, the corks will start to dry out letting oxygen into the wine. Conversely, if the humidity is too high, the labels will spoil and in extreme circumstances fungus can grow on the bottles.
A cellar should be kept dark as ultraviolet light destroys the wine.
Frequent vibration of the wine bottles is not good for long term ageing of the wine as it risks moving the sediment with detrimental effects.
A & W Moore can supply cellar conditioning units to control temperature and humidity levels.
Wine Cellar Storage
When planning a wine cellar there are several factors to consider with regard to the design. Wines from Bordeaux and Burgundy are often bought in wooden cases and these can be stored in case stands made from wood or metal.
Our standard traditional and all wood modular wine racks will store standard 75cl wine bottles and Bollinger style champagne bottles. For Krug or Dom Perignon bottles we manufacture special racks.
Consideration also needs to be given as to whether storage will be needed for magnum or half bottles and what sort of quantities will be required.
