The 2/3 Barrel makes a perfect holiday gift for that someone on your list who has everything. It features high volume storage and has the look and feel of a full wine barrel.

October 3, 2014, The Barrel Rack, makers of patented, handmade wine racks from recycled wine barrels announced its latest product, the 2/3 Barrel Wine Rack and a new barrel cradle. The wine rack is a great holiday gift for a wine collector looking for a stylish statement piece to showcase a wine collection.    

“The 2/3 Barrel is an exceptional piece of furniture that brings the wine country atmosphere into a home,” said Chet Bassetti, president and founder of The Barrel Rack. “It makes a perfect holiday gift for that someone on your list who has everything. It features high volume storage and has the look and feel of a full wine barrel.”

The 2/3 Barrel is made from a recycled wine barrel and holds 36 bottles of wine. The barrel is beautifully stained and the hoops are finished in a rich copper patina. The new 2/3 barrel is the largest wine rack of The Barrel Rack collection. It adds four inches of depth compared to the1/2 barrel to allow two bottles per opening without having to place the racks three to four inches from the wall as is the case with the 1/2 barrel. This is important when the back of the barrel is in easy view. The unit measures approximately 28” high, 28” wide, and 21” deep. The 2/3 Barrel retails for $609 (plus shipping) and is available at

“Our top priority is delighting our customers with elegant and functional wine racks,” said Bassetti. “After listening to our customers who needed the extra storage and flush wall mounting, we decided to build the 2/3 Barrel. ”

In addition to the 2/3 (36) Barrel, a new barrel cradle is introduced for all the products.

“Our products reflect the beauty and simplicity of the barrels and racks of the original wine producers. Our new barrel cradle maintains that tradition. They are extremely simple, functional, flexible and beautiful,” said Bassetti.

Additional Barrel Rack Products
The Barrel Rack also offers stand alone wine bottle storage units available in three additional sizes suitable for every level of wine collector:
1/3(18) Barrel holds 18 bottles. Elegant Small Space Storage Solution: The smallest rack in the Barrel Rack Collection, the 1/3 Barrel Wine Rack is ideal for counter tops or in smaller places to replace a traditional wine rack. The 12” depth allows this product to fit in place of many of the racks traditionally found in wine cellars. $389 plus shipping.

½ (18) Barrel, accommodates 18 bottles. Mid-Size Stylish Wine Storage Solution: The ½ Barrel Wine Rack is a mid-sized wine rack that can fill a slightly larger space in your home and offers a 17” depth which provides a bit more authentic barrel charm and also allows the product to easily be placed on tables and sideboards. The ½ Barrel provides an elegant display solution to a wine collection. $509 plus shipping.

½ (36) Barrel, holds 36 bottles. Wine Enthusiast Storage Solution : The ½ Barrel Wine Rack is for the wine collector who enjoys having many bottles on hand and still wants a mid-sized wine rack. The rack is the same dimensions as the ½ rack holding 18 bottles but is designed with twice the storage capacity. This rack has back side openings that allow two bottles to be stored in each space. The bottles project from the rear about 3” from the wall. $559 plus shipping.

The barrels can also be stacked in various configurations to provide hundreds of bottles of storage. All barrel wine racks maintain the authentic look of a full wine barrel. In addition to the home, the Barrel Rack systems can also be used by wine shops and restaurants as a more aesthetic way to store and display wines than the industrial-type racks.

The Barrel Rack's products were also recently featured on the Vanilla Ice Project on the DIY Network, where the racks were used in the renovation of a poker room in a mansion.
