Thank you very much for the welcome - sadly when I get to my cellar the labels do often look out of focus in real life... :)

Re: Wine Rack sizes

I got my racks from A & W Moore in Derbyshire (http://www.wineracks.co.uk), they seemed to provide an affordable rack that has proven strong enough. When I ran out of wall space, free standing units provided quite a dense solution, two double depth racks back to back (i.e. 4 bottles deep) with a woo...
