The history of storing wine is as long as the history of wine itself. At first, 7000 years ago, wine was stored in great clay jars or large vessels made of pottery, then the wood barrels of the Summerians. The Romans were the first to discover storing wine in bottles made of glass, and how the flatter and less onion-shaped bottles worked best. The first modern glass bottles were invented in 1600s England. Wood and metal racks were developed as well to hold the glass bottles. This guide will explore where to buy iron wine racks.

The wine racks will be made of steel that resemble iron or wrought iron while others will be of iron. The racks for wine will be free-standing for the floor or counter.
