Best Bet: Rack It Up


We love wine racks, in theory: It’s satisfying (albeit enabling) not having to run over to the wine shop every time you’re invited to a dinner party or feel like popping a bottle after work. Unfortunately, they tend to come in space-consuming, freestanding forms, and we’ve admittedly never been able to keep a twelve-bottle rack properly stocked. This six-bottle version from A&G Merch mounts seamlessly to the wall to preserve precious counter space (it juts out just under five inches). And unlike cheap chrome models, the design-conscious wood construction belies its affordable price.

Wall bottle holder, $35 at A&G Merch or online.
