Installed sideways - almost. I mounted my rack sideways in order to fit in a small crawl space under my house. In that I had to first put up plywood siding, then mount angle brackets to hold the included supports, I would not recommend that you not try this unless have some handyman skills. After getting it mounted I added some simple hair "scrunchies" to hold the bottles in more securely.
20 Bottle Wine Cage with Scrolls. [...] we were delighted to see how sturdy it was made. It is scrolled so it makes a very stylish addition to our wine room. There was a slight uneven length to the legs but a furniture pad took care of that little problem. It looks great and holds 20 bottles of wine. It is well worth the money. We would purchase again.
Wine racks can help organize a cellar's-worth of vino, or offer a practical and stylish decorative addition to a living or dining area. For restaurants and other high-volume areas, our commercial models make a great choice. Turn your corner into a crafty storage area, or go with a hanging rack for out of the way convenience. Our kitchen models include sturdy, sleek metal & iron (some with glass storage), compact table top units, beautiful wall mounts (surprisingly easy to install) and even modern cube designs.
Choose elegance and plenty of architectural detail -- flowing floral vines, dazzling motifs, handsome finishes and exceptional strength & durability. Traditional floor standing wood wine racks add a finely-crafted familiar presence in the pantry, but they're too handsome to keep hidden away -- put it out for everybody to see. No matter your cellar size, accommodate any bottle capacity counts: 1-9, 10-19, 20-100, more than 100. For ultra-expansive collections (we realize some folks love collecting wine just as much as they love tasting it), go with one to hold hundreds of bottles.
FYI: The correct way to store a bottle of wine is on its side so that the cork doesn't dry out which can cause the wine to become tainted with an unpleasant flavor, thus racks are designed to keep wines in good condition longer; plus side positioning allows display of attractive and interesting bottle labels.
