Lean slate wine rack with capacity for 7 bottles of fine wine. Made from world famous Welsh Slate. Hand picked from the quarry waste piles in the mountains of North Wales. A disused quarry that can still be explored is Dinorwig and well worth a visit if you’re in the area.

Core drilled in a vertical fashion using diamond tipped core drill bits. I then retain the cores and most importantly re use them, splitting these down as coasters. Finishing them with oil and a felted base. Holes are approximately 90mm in diameter. Smaller beer bottle or larger champagne holes can be drilled upon request. This is the perfect size for storing both a standard size wine bottle and a slightly larger sparkling wine bottle. Each piece is unique and has its own individual colourings and markings.

This lean slate wine rack design is not for everyone, so if you prefer a chunkier rack then 8swr48 would be a great choice. Other popular gifts across on the website include these Champagne Coolers and more recently these coffee / wine table designs. Slate is a great material that maintains a constant temperature and it will chill your wine nicely. It will not expand and contract like other materials. A sturdy floor is recommended however I can make up a slate base to be able to spread the weight evenly and prevent any damage to tiles.

Please do remember that each piece of slate is different. I cannot guarantee the exact replication of any designs and I would not wish to. Finally, if you can’t decide which rack to purchase then I would recommend a trip down to the workshop where I have over 100 racks in stock.
