I bought this item to display my fine bourbons. Two day later the frames gave way and smashed the glasses and all my bourbons. The wood plate still held on the wall but the frame just fell apart. It was made from parcel board not wood. Luckily I only had 11 bottles it claimed it held 18. This was an expensive experience.
MDF material for these dimensions will not hold the number of full bottles they are suggesting without failing. Not good for wine unless you drink it quickly enough that the corks don't dry out since they must be stored upright in this piece. It would be ok for keeping stemware at hand, though I wouldn't trust it for anything expensive given the materials used.
Ordered this to place over bar area to showcase wine bottles and store glasses. The backing that is secured to the wall is particle board so the weight of the bottles fractured the particle board and it separated from the wall. It is still hanging but there is a separation from the wall, so I cannot put bottles on the top.
I don't think this thing has a single piece of solid wood in it - it's all MDF, and looks it. However, the utility and space-saving aspects of this rack make it a good buy for the price, despite it not being of absolute top quality. I suggest using high-capacity screws to screw in the back piece to the wall (upon which the rack hangs), otherwise the rack's grip to the wall might be tenuous, at best.
I absolutely love this wine rack. It can hold so many bottles of wine, and I like to keep it stocked. It's extremely sturdy if you hang it correctly. The wine glasses hanging below is a nice touch. It's also a convenient area to keep the wine glasses near the wine.
