More than just storage

A wine rack, or a wine cellar if you want, is much more than just organised storage of wine bottles. The concept of a wine cellar comes from the fact that a lot of wines require lower temperature storage in order to provide the best drinking experience, and these temperatures are naturally found closer to the ground. Ideally, storing wine in the basement seems like the best option - but you are missing a crucial piece of the wine experience puzzle if you hide the bottles.

You are missing the element of display, show and design. Because wine is an exclusive product that, just like paintings and interior decorations, defines your home and who you are as a person. You love wine, and we want to show that to your guests. And don’t worry - we have the solution for you if you think that you desperately need to have wined stored in the basement due to the lower temperature. Read more below.

Installing a wine cooler

The only apparent problem by having a wine rack under your staircase is the lack of temperature adjustability. But there is a solution as we offer our so-called wine coolers, which are specifically designed for wine bottles. They come in many shapes and sizes with different functions based on your needs. And we know we have something for you as well.

There are substantial differences between our wine coolers and normal refrigerators. Firstly, the shelves in our wine coolers are not plain as normal fridge shelves. They are designed for wine bottles specifically, allowing you to take out a bottle without having to move other bottles in order to reach your bottle of choice. The bottle does not roll around loosely - it’s firmly placed.

Secondly, some wine coolers offer 2-zone temperature control, allowing you to set one specific temperature at the top of the cooler and another temperature at the bottom. By using a 2-zone wine cooler, your unique wines will always have the perfect temperature.

Unique Danish design and solid crafting

At Wineandbarrels, we recommend our Moldow and Square modules for your staircase wine rack. Each brand has its own advantages, and we will elaborate on them here. However, they both have in common that they are easy to adjust to your specific staircase dimensions.


Moldow is creme de la creme when it comes to wine rack design. Christian Moldow is the designer behind these extraordinary pieces of Danish design, which come in renowned Danish quality. Moldow offers a unique sense of detail, and every little piece is well-constructed and thought-through.

Moldow modules come in different types of wood, and each wooden unit is well-crafted and sand-scoured. You almost don’t sense that the module is put together by different components due to the sheer crafting quality.

  • Danish handmade qualities
  • Long lifetime
  • Sand-scoured surfaces
  • Great sense of detail
  • Designed for different types of bottles
  • Comes in different wood types

Square is an extremely cost-efficient solution that comes in a rock-solid design for an affordable price. The modules from Square are simple and elegant, and they are a popular solution due to their versatile design which suits most homes.

The wine racks fully serve their purpose, and they offer great longevity. Despite the modules being very well-crafted and versatile, the cost is not high. If you chose to build the wine rack yourself, it comes with a user-friendly user manual.

  • Low price
  • Solid and great longevity
  • Many shelf options
  • Flexible solution
  • Simple and versatile design
