Bamboo Wine Glass & Bottle Holder By Vinora
A bit of history on me versus wine racks in general: I used to have one of those bamboo wine glass holders that could be installed from the ceiling. Over a decade later it crashed to the floor and I lost all of my crystal glasses both wine and champagne. I was just very happy that no one got hurt; it was early in the morning and everyone else was still in bed. This occurred around 5 years ago and I haven’t found anything that really caught my fancy. Plus, the amount of glasses has greatly diminished; I only have seven glasses now (three of which I was just given a week ago)
This rack perfectly suits not only my needs but, the décor in my house and kitchen. I am big on wooden made pieces and the bamboo that this holder/rack is made of seems to be flawless. It is notable that the bamboo was treated equally even though there are four separate pieces; two columns and the top and base of the holder. No grains are loose or peeling on any of the pieces as would occur if they had been ill treated at the factories (wetting and drying, etc). The base is smaller than the top and has three felt pads underneath to ensure it is able to be moved without rocking or scratching of surfaces.
Putting it together; it came with four wood screws and the alen wrench to hand install the hardware to connect the columns to the top and base. By hand was a bit of a pain but, that is mostly due to me having cysts in both my wrists so it did take me a bit of extra time when in comparison to my youth. When put together mine is not uneven and does not wobble either.
Has the ability to hold six glasses but, can only hold three of mine as the others are much too long in stemware to be able to fit them. The center can hold a 750 ml bottle and up to the 1.5L bottles of wine easily (Yayyyy!). Very sturdy construction and does not tilt even with only having placed glasses on one side; evenly distributed weight.
Came with two bonus bottle stoppers that honestly look like top hats and also came with several wine glass “charms” to differentiate individuals’ glasses; all are made from silicone.
I truly am loving this as a whole and even though I have it on my counter in a corner it looks awesome on my dining table also! Will be able to spruce it up with some holiday cheer throughout the year too if I want to decorate it with the themes of the moment.
