does this rack require assembly?
Deb on Aug 26, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does. The assembly can take some time but with one exception, it didn't require any special tools. My unit arrived with two holes for the back supports that hadn't been drilled. See my review, which will be posted shortly.
Does anyone know if this can hold Turley bottles?
Woody on Mar 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it definitely fits magnums, but sometimes you need to leave next space empty or can only put a thin bottle of ice wine or such next to it.
Does this rack accommodate champagne bottles?
BDA on Sep 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes, although Magnums come in many sizes so storage may be limited to the upper shelf only. Most Bordeaux and Champagne bottles should fit on the other shelves, depending on their size. The shelves are spaced approximately 5 inches apart but you have the option of omitting one or two when assembling the unit if necessary to accommodate your collection.
Do 1.5 Liter/Large Format bottles fit in any of the shelves?
Aaron on Jun 27, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Magnums come in all sizes so I can only guarantee that the top shelf will fit them.
You may be able to get bordeaux shaped magnums on the other shelves depending on the size of the bottle.
Can the racks be stained to match other furniture?
null on Apr 13, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question. If you purchase the natural unit, it can be stained. However if you are going to do that I would suggest a non aromatic stain, because if there is a smell the wine will take on that property. Any other questions, please call us at 800-377-3330.
Do bottles fall off easy if earth rattles as in NAPA?
Hos P on May 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: So I don't live in earth quake territory but I do have three of these rakes in my basement. Out of concern for the racks falling forward I took two "L" brackets and firmly secured the rack to the wall. Nothing will fall out if you are able to do the same.
Is the mahogany a reddish in color?
Linda F on Jul 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The unstained is a little darker than the same type pine rack. It has a slight reddish tint. I have it in a basement cellar and it sits next to a pine rack. It does not clash with the other rack.
How can width be reduced, and to what dimension?
Paul on Oct 9, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This rack cannot be reduced in width; it is not adjustable.
Is it possible to install one in front of the other for dual-depth? If not, are there any racks here that you can do that with?

How is this shipped? USPS, Fedex, or UPS?
David F on Apr 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Swedish 126 Bottle Wine Rack is shipped via UPS.
Some of the older reviews mention that the rack DOESN'T hold burgundy/champagne bottles. The more recent reviews say it does fine with the larger diameter bottles by reversing bottles side-by-side or skipping a space. Leaving out 2 shelves to accommodate larger bottles reduces the capacity by 9 bottles per shelf (or from 126 to 108 bottles or 15% less storage). I presume I could leave out the lowest shelf and store magnums on the bottom (rather than the very tippy-top shelf, which isn't so smart in earthquake country of Southern California). How many magnums will fit across one single 35" wide shelf - side by side and reversed (pointed in/ou)t? I expect these are different quantities. Thanks for the help as I could try to math-my-way into this by measuring bottles and dividing into 35", but I expect my answer would be different in reality.
BlaineW on Apr 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Approximately 5-6 Magnums and you'd be placing the bottles in every other position.
How are the end racks assembled? i.e. screws, nails , glued ?
Marv on Jun 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They are put together with grommets so you will screw them in.
Can the Swedish rack be used in a controlled cellar? What is the major difference between Swedish rack and redwood? I personally like the look A LOT better than the redwood.
TC on Mar 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Swedish rack can be used in a cellar. The big difference is the Swedish wine rack is free standing while the Redwood has a high mineral content which will withstand humidity very well.
How level must the floor be? Can the unit be assembled to stand securely on a floor that is not quite level---10 degrees or less, for example?
Rangersport on Feb 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes you could just use shims to level where the floor is uneven
Is there a corner unit and jumbo bin unit compatible with the Swedish 126 bottle rack?
Bill on Dec 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: There is a Swedish Corner Unit available as an attachment for this series that holds 42 bottles.
Are these all mahogany mans just different stains on said wood ? What is strongest?
Katherine on Dec 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes mahogany wood with different stain options. This is very strong and an excellent free standing rack.
Can this be installed in a climate controlled cellar with 70% humidity without falling apart/rotting?
Bradley on Nov 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can use this rack in a temperature controlled wine environment.
Do the shelves sag over time? After being loaded with wine bottles, I wonder if they will eventually start to sag in the middle. Thanks.
Kasapearson on Nov 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They do not sag, this is an excellent rack and a classic made for many years. Great product !
Are there instructions and parts to attach unit to the wall?
Buddy on Sep 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: There is no need to attach these to a wall as they are self standing.
If you still want to attach to a wall I would just use a standard L bracket.
Can I buy just the end pieces?
William on Aug 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Swedish wine rack is only available as a complete set, they do not offer individual sections.
If you utilize two racks and link them together using one pillar in the center, can you tell me the overall width of the doubled unit?
JTS on Jan 18, 2012
66 1/2"
Thank you
How much are the extensions to double the size?
null on Aug 20, 2011
BEST ANSWER: You just need to purchase another unit and have it share the upright of the one you currently own
I was about to buy this 126 bottle unit, but based on the comments posted, it really doesn't work very well for pinot noir bottles, which are a large part of my collection. What would you recommend instead for those slightly larger bottles but with a similar approach as this unit?
Bob R on May 6, 2019
Swedish wine rack. I bought two years ago and am missing one just one metal insert bar screw-in holder. How can I get one?
Stephen P on Apr 21, 2019

Good Product - Limited Bottle Size
I had read the reviews before buying and was concerned abt. commments that they are hard to erect and about limitation on bottle size, but the comments did not have details. I bought 6 for use on one side of a new cellar, and I would then decide after erecting them if could use more. I now will buy three more, but not 6. I am making my own racks to hold larger wine bottles.

1. This rack holds 3.25" inch bottles side-by-side with no difficulty. Bordeaux/Cab bottles are 3.00. Most Pinot and Syrah bottles are 3.00 or 3.25, and also fit nicely. Many newer "better" Pinots and Syrahs, however, are larger (some up to 3.5") and they will not fit unless you alternate them side-by-side with 3.00" bottles. (Turley will not fit at all, unless you leave every other slot empty.)

2. I was pleasantly surprised to find that when erecting 2 racks side-by-side, you make double use of the middle upright. Thus, one rack is 35" wide, but 2 racks are only 67" wide, and each additional rack adds only another 32". I wish this info had been in catalogue and/or website so I knew it before I bought my racks; I would have laid out my cellar much differently.

3. Many people commented that the racks were hard to assemble. Getting the first (bottom) shelf bolted into four loose uprights was awkward and using two people would have helped. After that, however, it was pretty easy. (Trick: Do not tighten the grommets very much until all horizontal racks are in, then go back, check for plmb and tighten them. Also, instructions suggest waiting a week and then tightening them again. Good idea. Several needed a full turn or so to be tight again.)

4. Mine are very sturdy because I left off the back cross-brace supports and bolted the tops into studs with lag bolts. Cannot speak to free-standing application.

5. Person at WE told me that they could be used as double depth racks. They COULD, but I would not recommend it. The grommets stick out a little in front of the uprights, and thus you cannot get the front upright of the back rack and the back upright of the front rack flush -- so they would not secured together without a lot of work and they would not look well.
Outstanding product
Just finished assembling eight of these kits in natural color for my cellar. This is a truly outstanding product: (1) the quality of wood is extremely good and also very consistent (across 8 cartons no less) - not a SINGLE bad or broken piece either out of the box or during installation; (2) assembly could not possibly be easier (all the instructions are on a single 8.5x11 page, there are only about 5 steps to put the whole thing together (time to assemble and mount to wall 8 racks = 10 hours); (3) these racks are VERY sturdy when assembled, especially when you interconnect.

None of the things that I worried could go wrong went wrong - the wood was consistent and perfect and didn't break, the job was easy and the end product is very practical and very attractive. I am SO glad I read all the reviews and particularly, that I read the reviews on some of the more "custom" and more expensive racks here and settled with this one because I experienced none of the problems widely reported with the other racking systems.

If I can offer any tips: (1) the racking shelves are to be inserted FROM THE TOP using the grooves to guide them down from top to bottom, not snapped in diagonally which is POSSIBLE but could break the wood (I point this out because if there is any part of the written instructions which is not clear, this is it); (2) definitely see other reviews re. combining multiple racks, the dimensions will be different because you use one middle upright for the rack both on the left and right; what that other review doesn't say is that you can ALSO play with the ends, using either the inner or outer threading holes to achieve slight variations in width from 32-35" (compressing down to 32" will get rid of one row of capacity) - this was helpful to me for purposes of "fine tuning" to my cellar's dimensions.

Final remark, I choked up on the shipping ($480 for 8 racks) - but honestly, these are HUGE (three large carttons per rack) and probably that is what they spent. At least it came promptly!

Great product - I am extremely happy and highly recommend.

product is good shipping service sucks!
Product was damaged at delivery. Three shelves were cracked. I have sent 4 emails for help with no response. I will never buy from this company again.

"Good buy for the shrinking dollar."
I now have 10 Swedish Wine Racks in my wine cellar. On 2 different walls I have combined 4 racks together to create a wall storage space. These units are made more stable by screwing brackets from the rack to the wall. Applied discreetly, one can't see the brackets when the rack is being used.

126 bottle swedish wine rack
The rack is made so it only accomidates white wine and bordeaux bottles. Larger bottles, Pinot and Brurgandy are so lare you cannot store them flt on rack in a row. Instead of 9 bottles per shelf wither make it 8 or widen the rack by 3 inchs. Very disappointed with my partially usable wine rack. I give is a 'C'.
July 6, 2012
Nice, but not for Pinot or Champagne
The slats on the shelves are not set wide enough apart to accomodate wider bottles such as many Pinot Noir, Champagne and Chateauneuf du Pape. Although the slats have mitred edges designed to cradle each bottle, collections of the above mentioned wines end up resting on top of the slats. I now have 2 shelving units from WE and 2 from [...]. Only the first one from [...] is designed properly. One would think a company specializing in wine would get it right. Until then, I will have to accept that this is the best one avaiable.

Not usable as delivered!
If your collection consists of Cabernet only this would be a good rack, however, if you collect Burgundy's, Champagne or premium Chardonnays forget about this rack the spacing will not accommodate this bottle format.

Wine rack review
Once you have it together it is great. I think the installation instructions could be better.. So five stars for the product but four stars because of install directions.

Useful and attractive storage
My second such wine rack -- this one had decent instructions where the previous one (about 3 years ago) had just a single xeroxed page with no printed instructions. You do need a second person to help in its assembly, but then assembly is pretty straightforward. Very sturdy and attractive.

The only good product from this vendor
Took a while to figure out how to assemble the shelves (I ordered two). First time out of the gate I was worried about it standing up straight. Then I figured out that the best strategy was to put it together, tighten it up, and then shim it with a level to get it upright. Second time around it was a piece of cake! Final product looks great and my wife likes the smell.
