Own a piece of American history with this Barn Wood Wine Bottle Rack.
The old American Barns are slowly fading away and one day will be gone forever

This Wine Rack is a take on the old Riddling Racks used to make Champagne in the 1800's.

A bit of Riddling Rack History,

"In 1772, Philippe Clicquot-Muiron established the original enterprise which in time became the house of Veuve Clicquot. His son, François Clicquot, married Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin in 1798 and died in 1805, leaving his widow in control of a company variously involved in banking, wool trading, and Champagne production. Under Madame Clicquot's guidance the firm focused entirely on the latter, to great success."

"Madame Clicquot is credited with a great breakthrough in champagne handling that made mass production of the wine possible. In the early 19th century, with the assistance of her cellar master, Antoine de Müller, Clicquot invented the riddling rack that made the crucial process of dégorgement both more efficient and economic. Clicquot's advance involved systematically collecting the spent yeast and sediments left from the wine's secondary fermentation in the bottle's neck by using a specialised rack."

"Composed much like a wooden desk with circular holes, the rack allowed a bottle of wine to be stuck sur point or upside down. Every day a cellar assistant would gently shake and twist (remuage) the bottle to encourage wine solids to settle to the bottom. When this was completed. the cork was carefully removed, the sediments ejected, and a small replacement dose of sweetened wine added."


The wood came from a Barn in Michigan.
The wood is very rustic and full of character with different shades of brown.

I have left the wood natural with no finish added (it has been washed). I figure Mother Nature did a pretty good job on the finish over the last 100 years or so and you are left with a more authentic and natural look.
