What is great about this wine tower is the fact that it has such a small and compact footprint, which is perfect for my small studio space. Iíve always wanted a dry bar and wine rack, but the vast majority of them are low and wide and therefore have a large footprint. And this piece is not only well-designed, but also sturdy and very handsome. The brown rubberwood veneer adds a touch of luxury.
The touch of modernity and sophistication of this wine tower convert my living into a piece of art. I love wine and I am a great collector so I needed something unique, beautiful and solid for my best wine bottles. With this wine tower I can have a comfortable place to store my wines and glasses, easily managing to make it become a great bar corner. The dark brown color of the wood matches with the room and the price was low.
I had never purchased furniture online before and was very concerned that this wine rack might be shoddy, or wobble, or look cheap. To the contrary! I am in love with this wine rack and it's now my favorite piece of furniture. The wood is a beautiful color and the unit does not look remotely IKEA-like.
The only downside is there's nothing at the back of the upside-down glasses rack to stop you from theoretically pushing a wine glass all the way through and onto the floor. If the rack is up against the wall, the wall acts as a built-in bumper, but if you need to keep this unit a couple inches out from the wall, you'd need another solution to address this.

I am very pleased with this wine tower. I researched many options and wanted something that would blend with my other furniture. It fits perfectly. From the very start, I was please with how quickly the unit arrived and how easily it went together. My husband and I assembled it together in less than an hour without any problems. Everything fit together perfectly. It easily holds 24 regular sized bottles and the large openings enable storing larger bottles. The drawer holds all my wine openers and stoppers and the tray is the perfect place to open the bottles. I keep my everyday wine glasses in the glass holder which makes everything very handy. I would recommend this to anyone, who like myself cannot keep a large supply of wine on hand. (I drink it too quickly :-) )
I've been looking for a wine storage unit but could never find the right height. This piece had the perfect scale, color, and the right amount of storage for an amateur wine collector like myself; I had purchased this back in February 2012 (forgot to add my review). Overall, it's of good quality, however, it does have its flaws. The Xs (wine storage) area are not lined up properly; they're somewhat loose and not as neat/sturdy, also the cutting drawer is a bit tight when trying to pull it in & out, but I can live with it because it's not as noticeable and it's an overall handsome piece of furniture, it's a keeper. Thanks Overstock.

The Austin Brown Wood Modern Wine Tower is a beautiful addition to our new home. Our biggest issue with this unit however are the assembly instructions, which are some of the worst I have seen. No words, just black-and-white stencil pictures. If your ability to imagine in 3d is lacking, you may have difficulty putting this together.
The wine glass rack at the top of the unit is too small for the bases of our wine glasses, so it's pretty much useless unless you have wine glasses with smaller bases.
Another minor issue was that the unit reeked when it first arrived like paint fumes. Stunk up the place for 2 days before it finally dissipated.
Aesthetically, the unit is very nice to look at, and with its small footprint, can fit in many locations in your home.
This wine tower was relatively easy and straightforward to assemble, and the finished product was surprisingly substantial in weight and stability given its small footprint. It was perfect for the small space we had available, and we've already received numerous compliments. My only complaint is that our large Riedel wineglasses do not fit in the glass-holder grooves because the bases are too large, so we've had to put Champagne and martini glasses there instead. But it was an acceptable trade-off given the quality and usability of this piece.
First off, base don't the picture it looks like it is a rich espresso color but upon arrival the product appeared near black. It arrived damaged for us, so we had to return it. I do love the style of this wine rack though. Just beware it's super dark!
I have been looking at this wine tower for quite awhile. I had someone put this together for me so I can't speak on the ease of assembly. This wine tower is beautiful and does not take up a large amount of space. I love it!!
