The Black Tie Grid is a wine rack grid that holds up to 144-bottles* of standard Bordeaux-size wine bottles. Practical, affordable and thoroughly sophisticated, the minimalist design makes them appropriate for the living or dining room. Yet, the minimal cost of seventy cents per bottle is sensible enough for functional areas in your home.

These racks works perfectly with Bordeaux and standard Chardonnay bottles. Unlike many racks, these also work well with half-bottles. I added 1" of depth to the rack by attaching 1x2 strips to the wall (toggle bolted) and then used the included screws to attach the rack to the wood. I prefer this to using the included plastic wall anchors. Since I was building 5 racks side-by-side, I ran three wood strips horizontally at the height of the mounting brackets. The greater depth is more secure and permits storage of taller (Italian and other fancy types) bottles.

Use another type of rack for Large Formats, Champagne and Burgundy bottles.

These racks look very nice. Based on comments in other reviews and the cheap price, my wife was worried that they would be difficult to assemble and look cheap. They are neither cheaply made nor difficult to assemble!

This product was ill concieved! Start with two grids (available at your animal feed store) paint them black and tie them together with hardware. Any hardware will do because whats provided with this rack is so flimsy and not well thoughtout at all. I had to tie rubber bands around the connecting pieces just to make sure they didn.t come apart. I wouldn't pay more than $50 for this product. Never again!!

Doesn't hold large bottles (Pinot)

    Comments about Wine Enthusiast 144 Bottle Black Tie Grid:

    This is a functional way to hold a lot of wine. As previously mentioned you need to build a little spacer to push it off the wall as the mounts aren't long enough and don't allow for the bottles to rest securely unless you add a couple of inches space. But the biggest thing is pinot bottles don't fit. The squares aren't big enough. I bought one similar to this a couple of years ago and thought I was getting the same thing, but no. So since I have both it doesn't matter to me, but I would be very upset if I didn't have somewhere else to put large bottles.

    Comments about Wine Enthusiast 144 Bottle Black Tie Grid:

    I'm using this rack in my garage. It is an excellent value on a price per bottle basis when it comes to wine storage. The only issue I have at all is with some bottles (especially Pinot Noirs) that have a larger base - they are just a bit too big to get into the slots. They will rest safely on top, but it would be nice if the squares were slightly larger.

    Best Uses

    • Wine Cellar Storage

    Comments about Wine Enthusiast 144 Bottle Black Tie Grid:

    Good, economical, basic volume storage. Openings don't fit larger bottles like Champagne and some Rhone and specialty bottles. Supplied mounting pieces do not hold entire rack far enough above floor to allow bottom row of bottles to sit down securely and not far enough from wall so bottle necks rest securely on outer grid (I had to make my own additional mounting pieces to overcome). Older versions of this product had each grid panel as one solid piece where this new one makes each grid out of two pieces with small connectors, which undoubtedly makes shipping easier but is not as solid a structure when assembled.

    Comments about 144 Bottle Black Tie Grid:

    When the rack is against the wall the bottles don't fit correctly. By putting two 1 1/2 angle brackets together it worked well as the spacer needed. You will need six of these spacers so buy 12 angle brackets and the hardware needed to make each pair in the shape of a U. I also used tie wraps to secure down the spacers provided between the front and rear grids. Without using tie wraps these spacers are very flimsy. I needed a rubber hammer to get the top and bottom of each grid to properly seat deep enough. The price was right and once I got it properly secured with the extra space so the bottles could seat properly it looked great. It is also very sturdy now.

    Comments about Wine Enthusiast 144 Bottle Black Tie Grid:

    Great product at a good price. Designed to sit on the floor and be attached to the wall with brackets. I, however, mounted mine on a floating shelf above my liquor cabinets. The floating shelf must be capable of holding 600+ pounds and the rack must be attached to the wall studs. This unit has worked great and i is the cheapest, most attractive option for the money.

      Easy to assemble and holds LOTS of bottles. Really unfortunate that the "holes" for the bottles do not accommodate Champagne or the "new style" Pinot Noir or Syrah bottles.
