Mountain shaped compact slate wine rack with capacity for 11 bottles of fine wine. Hand picked from the waste piles at a quarry in North Wales, near Snowdon.
The base is sawn and the holes carefully core drilled out in a straight uniform fashion. Holes are approximately 90mm in diameter.
Large slate wine rack cored drilled in a staggered, linear double row fashion. This doubless the storage capacity whilst minimising the floor space required.
A sloping top finishes off an endless streaky, wavey style natural edge. Predominantly grey in colour with a few rustic tints, this rack has only recently been added to the website.
The edge is slightly layered and quite clean so could accommodate a carving or engraving. These make great gifts for birthdays, weddings or anniversaries for that personal bespoke touch.
Nice curved base with a rough chiseled mountain top. This rack is quite chunky at 190mm thick. This is easily my favourite rack on the website at the moment. This just looks like it’s come straight out of the mountain.
Holes are approximately 90mm in diameter. All the cores are retained and split down as coasters. Oil’d and felted to finish. Sold in packs of 4 or 8. This is the perfect size for storing both a standard size wine bottle and a slightly larger sparkling wine bottle.
Narrow staggered drilling shape with a striking rustic coloured sloping top. This colour contrasts beautifully with the predominantly grey colour of the slate.

Stunning tall supreme slate wine rack with the popular copper colour tints running through the slate, often referred to as fools god. Technical term is iron pyrite.
This is a very popular design with a thin, narrow base but very tall in height, making efficient use of restricted floor space. Holes are cored in a linear fashion. Double width and sometimes triple staggered.
Wondrous Slate Wine Rack. This is a stunning design with a quartz streak running through the lower part. This is visible on the face of the slate and also on the inside of the core.
Holes are cored in a triple width fashion. These cores have been reused, split down and thus re used as coasters. The bases are felted and oil’d to finish. This is a very clean example of welsh slate with no fools gold, just the distinctive quartz streak.
Absolutely stunning streaky slate wine rack with 3 to 4 rare quartz streaks running through the top half of this rack that add real character. This is a popular design with holes cored out in a vertical fashion.
I’ve only seen a handfull of pieces with this natural feature in it making this very rare.
This welsh gold wine rack makes a stunning interior feature, containing not one but two bands of iron pyrite in a streaky fashion across the top of the wine rack.
The top of this rack thins out and thus not suitable for coring but I retained it as the colours in this look amazing. For proper Welsh Gold check out Clogau for a great range of Welsh jewellery.
Beautiful and subtle mini slate wine rack tower for displaying your favourite wine, measuring approx 480mm in height.
This is a nice clean example of quality welsh slate. Sawn base, natural edges with a chiseled top in an attempt to try and resemble the rugged mountain line of North Wales, where this slate originates from.
Dark grey in colour with the inside of the cores contrasting nicely with a lighter grey. Clean, layered, wavy edge.
5swr37 Cymru Am Byth
The perfect slate wine rack for the Welsh wine lover, this beautifully engraved tower displays up to 5 favourite wines.
Cymru Am Byth Rack translated to ‘Wales Forever’. Engraved to give clients an idea of what can be carved into the slate.
Perfect phrase as the slate originated from North Wales, famous for producing the highest quality slate.
Amazing Mountain Wine Rack. This is one of my favourite racks currently in stock, purely because it is so unusual. It’s got a tall linear side to it and a mini mountain on the bottom left.
Consistently grey in colour without any quartz lines or orange rustic tints which can be found in some pieces. This rack just sets itself apart because it is so unusual.
