The bottle cradles are open in the front as well as the back. This allows the bottles to protrude slightly from the rear. If the barrels are placed approximately 2" from the wall, then, up to two bottles can be stored in each bottle cradle. Up to 36 bottles per barrel can be accommodated.
Barrels can be configured in a single setting or in a nested pyramid stack of 3,5 or six barrels (or more). In order to support the barrels in a horizontal position a barrel cradle is used on the bottom-most barrel and barrel wedges are used for the upper barrels in a nested stack. These items can be ordered during the barrel(s) purchase and will be shipped along with the barrels(s) at no additional shipping cost. During backlog times, please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery.
