wine rack installation by design milk"I knew that anything designed by Eric Pfeiffer of Pfeiffer Lab was going to be awesome, so when I had the opportunity to get my hands on some STACT modular wine holders, I jumped at the chance. Although we’re in an apartment awaiting completion of our house, we still wanted to install one of these bad boys to create more counter space.

This past weekend, we finally cracked open our STACT box and hung it up. It took about 10 minutes using nothing but a drill. Living the apartment life, we don’t have too many fancy tools, so it was a relief we didn’t need anything complicated to get it up on the wall.

The packaging was really nice and there weren’t too many parts. From walls of wine for serious collectors to a small square or two for those of us who like to enjoy a bottle every now and again, STACT offers versatility and style to all levels of wine lovers."  Full review >

"We were able get the racks up in less than 1 ½ hours just before opening of the Parade of Homes. It looks amazing! Everything about your product including the packaging is 100% fantastic. I am looking forward to using this again and again.
Thanks again -LOVE THIS PRODUCT!"

Ricardo S - (via customer reviews)

"Very nice rack! My kitchen is now complete."


Ryan D - (via customer reviews)

"Best wine rack! Very stylish and modern. Really pleased with my purchase."


Leticia - (via customer reviews)

"Stylish & easy! I was looking for something unique & decorative at the same time. I did a an image Google search & low and behold I found the STACT system. Immediately I said "this is it!". I went into the page & I really liked what I saw. All the reviews were great. The price was a little high so I didn't buy it right away. This Christmas we were going to host, so I wanted to have our dinning room presentable & finally get all the bottles off my kitchen counter top. So I bought . The installation was very easy. I install fixtures at work all the time so this was no problem to do it myself. The rack is very sturdy & I love it. I will definitely will be expanding it as this year goes by!"


Adam - (via customer reviews)

"We've ordered our kits. They look beautiful. Haven't installed yet but looking forward to it. Will add additional info after review. Purchasing was easy and customer service was excellent."


Phil - (via customer reviews)

"I love my two orange STACT's they are brilliantly functional an look like pieces of art on my wall, also they are built to a very high standard and easy to install. I will totally be buying some more The service was first class and getting them sent to the UK was not hassle. FANTASTIC product!!"


Christian - (via wine rack reviews)

"Thumbs up! Couldn't ask for better wine rack... Looks amazing and works even better!!! Thanks for taking care of my wine bottles :)"


Kirk - (via customer reviews)

"Let me start by stating that the customer service at STACT is awesome. We needed to adjust our shipping arrangements to have the order arrive after our holiday. Jamie arranged this gladly and the product showed up literally the day after we arrived home. Jamie went so far as to call shortly after we received the racks to confirm if we had any questions or concerns with the setup/installation. Can't say enough about this kind of customer service that is lacking by so many other companies and businesses out there in the retail market. Well done!

My only other comment would be that a larger installation can be challenging for the less mechanically inclined. Take the time to read directions carefully and have the proper tools for the job. Having said that, Jamie was more than willing and helpful (via phone/video Skype) to try and help resolve issues that we had. Overall a super cool product that looks awesome!"


Milton - (via email)

"Gorgeous, and absolutely brilliant design."


Marcos - (via customer reviews)

"Incredible product, stunning results! We ordered our STACT wine wall and were super excited to put it up. We chose a basic 5x3 layout with an alternate color second column (very much like the example/demo pictures) and were super happy with the end result. The quality of each panel is top notch and the wall gets lots "oohs" and "aahs" when people see it. The actual installation is a bit challenging if you want to do it perfectly. I believe it took about 8 hours to get it all done, including proper alignment, mounting. After mounting the wall and filling it with the wine collection, we are already planning an expansion to include a fourth row, or maybe even 2 two more!"


Susan - (via customer reviews)

"I bought two wine racks, one black and one orange and have stacked them vertically. They look great in my kitchen and I've had many compliments from friends!"


Justin - (via customer reviews)

"The Piano Blacks Look Great.  We had a little trouble setting these up in our apartment as we weren't sure what was behind the drywall. We had to overcome some steel behind the drywall in a few spots. Holes are made are 3/8", so we had to get it right the first time. Once they were up, we adjusted the back side screws to get everything to line up. It was a tedious process but once we got them, they have been holding our wine with style and flash. They haven't moved a bit and they look great. We'll certainly order more soon. This is just the start!"


Laura, Owner at Trend Kitchen - (via Facebook)

"Just bought a bunch of new wine racks to grow our wine wall! Friends and wine lovers, check these guys out... their products are a lifesaver in our tiny restaurant and the color options are beautiful! I love our combination of electric orange and white at the restaurant, but I'm thinking of doing white and the grey oak at my apartment for my personal wine collection : )"


Anuphong, Owner at Thudsuan Kitchen & Bar - (via email)

Richard - (via customer reviews)

"We wanted something stylish, practical and modern to store some wine in our small kitchen. This ticked all the boxes and looks even better in situ. Assembly was easy and the sales service was great. We would certainly highly recommend this product."


Bruce - (via email)

"I’m so happy with the 5 piano black modules that I want to add another 5 to the wall. I have also sent photos of my STACT wine rack to all of my oenophile friends and also my mother, an interior designer in Southern California.

BTW - the wine racks survived the recent Napa earthquake that woke us all up at 4:30 in the morning!  I was cringing in the bedroom, waiting to hear bottles smashing on the concrete floor of my loft, but when didn’t happen. When I checked on the bottles in the morning, not a one had moved even a bit!"

"I am thrilled with how my wine cellar turned out. Every person that stops by is in awe with how it looks and functions. I could not be more satisfied with the final outcome and well this system works. As I tell my friends, "it's beautifully STACT!"


Jenny - (via email)

"It turned out as we hoped and we are really happy with it. Everyone who has seen the wine rack has been super impressed."


Lisa - (via customer reviews)

"I used 6 of the squares to make a wine wall. I love it, it has a very clean modern look, and has a remarkably small footprint. It has made my wine space look way more organized and I have room for expansion if I need it.
The system is expensive, the box it came in looked very small for how much I had spent and my handyman who installed them was sceptical also. However it is totally worth it once you see it up. If you have been considering this product, don't wait!"


Philip - (via customer reviews)

"Brilliant Product. Everything about the product was first rate: the quality of finish, the ease of construction, the fit.. I couldn't be happier with the product and the service."


Freshjivem - (via Houzz)

Bruce - (via customer reviews)

"I installed these 2 piano black modules last weekend in my loft in the SoMa neighborhood of San Francisco - I searched for a year to find just the right wine rack and am so glad that I waited until I came across your product! I've already recommended STACT to several of my oenophile friends, and my mother who is an interior designer in SoCal."


Papatipapa - (via Houzz)

"STACT modular wine racks are truly a piece of art for your walls. It’s modern, clean and just really cool. Great customer service, fast shipping, and super easy to install. Highly recommended."

Kate - (via email)

"We have assembled the first two and love them and can't wait to hang them once we have the other two. I'm sure we will add to our collection someday when we have more space. The entire wine wall is so killer.  So happy we found your product when searching for modern wine racks. Thank you again. You rock."

Candyice, Calamvale QLD (via Lifestyle Channel Try it, Rate it Product Reviews)

"Thank you Lifestyle Food & STACT for giving me the exciting opportunity to trial and review this wonderful item! I have never owned or used a proper wine rack or storage system before so this was a complete eye opener at just how wonderful even just a small collection can look in your home without cluttering up too much space or looking out of place.

The quality of this wine panel is obvious just looking at it, you can see how well made it is and how long lasting it will be. It looks sophisticated and classy with an elegant feel.

Very easy to instal and use, even for somebody as clueless as me when it comes to installing or putting anything together around the home!

I have been highly impressed & would definitely recommend this for any wine lover or even just to store any glass bottle you may have for easy access and unique display."


Jacqui, Bargara QLD (via Lifestyle Channel Try it, Rate it Product Reviews)

"Super stylish product ! great packaging that would make a fantastic gift for someone. Great easy to follow installation instructions. The wine rack looks sleek and stylish on our wall, we had great fun deciding which wines to display !! we love this product and recommend it. installation is no problem."


Leanne, Port Kennedy WA (via Lifestyle Channel Try it, Rate it Product Reviews)

"The stylish STACT wine rack gives the feel of a piece of art on the wall. It's thinking outside the box when it comes to wine racks. The STACT display is in clear view and love the fact that you can see your wine at a glance without going into a cabernet or stopping in a wine rack on the floor"


Tabitha, Summer Hill NSW (via Lifestyle Channel Try it, Rate it Product Reviews)

"I love the look of this on my wall & how well it fits with my home decor. it is 1 less piece of furniture off my floor. And it presents my wines in a decorative way"


Mark - (via Yotpo product reviews)

"I could not be happier with my STACT wine wall. I bought 9 white and 3 electric orange and put together a really nice looking wall. Everyone loves it and I do too. Installation was not difficult and, best of all, I have something that fits my decor and it totally unique!"


Toby - (via email)

Tessa - (via Yotpo product reviews)

"Wonderfully constructed, very sturdy, and easy to install. Walnut slid nicely into the brackets, the black lacquer was a much tighter fit and a few times we worried about scratching / damaging the lacquer. Overall, I'm absolutely in love with the rack and it's become a beautiful, unique functional design piece in my home."

"I've recently received the STACT system, I ordered two different colors, electric orange and walnut. Both are perfect, with excellent finishes. The mounting is also very simple. I'm very happy with my purchase - The Perfect Wine Rack"


The Macnabs - (via Houzz)

"Truly revolutionizing the wine rack world. It's more of a piece of art then simply a wine storage solution. I've installed 3 different sets of STACT for friends and clients and everyone is blown away. Very impressed at how fast they go together and how they completely modernize a space.  Extremely easy to put together and the box even comes with a template for all your non handyman superstars. Also includes wall anchors, screws, and allen key. Idiot proof.  Hardest thing about these Stact wine walls is keeping it stoked with wine. ha !!  Well done STACT team. Very impressed"


Green Forrest Builders - (via Houzz)

"These look really cool. I also like that the high gloss white finish we used is clearly sprayed out, buffed, catalyzed lacquer-- not some cheap thermofoil or melamine."


Onyx Development Group - (via Facebook)

"Without STACT this cellar would not have come to life. The quality, price, and functionality could not be touched. STACT's unique product will become a staple in my wine cellar designs."

"Bought some units for my buddy and he loves them....they look rad in real life."


Hannah & Peter Schulz (former President of the Winemaker's Federation of Australia)  - (via email)

"They look amazing, such a perfect solution to replace dodgy old wine rack systems! It has already STACT reviewscaused a little excitement amongst friends on Facebook.

They really are fabulous, and we adore them already....many friends cannot understand how it isn't pulling the wall down, or falling down entirely, but we have every faith in it, and having done the maths, there is no way the rack is going anywhere!"

  • Great packaging

  • Mounting aid is a miracle device

  • Instructions easy to follow overall

  • Anchors are excellent

"Your product was great! Our client had a grand opening on Saturday and our designer was there and said the wine racks were a huge hit and a major topic of discussion. Thank you for making that happen in time!"



Onyx Development Group - (via Houzz)

"Stact wine displays helped me solve a wine cellar design issue with ease. Jamie Kasza and his team helped me bring my vision to reality. The functionality and real beauty of the Stact system turned the the cellar into a true piece of art which showcases the wine, quality of the materials and craftsmanship at a great value. A custom piece like this would be three times the cost of the Stact system. I highly recommend the Stact product! I definitely will be designing another wine project around Stact in the near future. I can't wait to play with the different finishes."


Kevin - (via Yotpo product reviews)

"I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a modern wine rack solution. Its construction is solid, installation a breeze, utility unmatched, and aesthetics are simply fantastic! Customer service and integrity remain the foundation of their business model."

Philip - (via Survey Monkey)

"Extremely satisfied. Ordered 3 x walnut and 1 x black and especially the black finish is stunning. I like that (almost) all the things in the package are to be used to set up the system, leaving limited waste and keeping the package small. Had to read the instructions a couple of times, but as soon as the first one was installed, it was very easy.
STACT is a very cool way of storing your wines, making your room look extra classy!"

Jason - (via Survey Monkey) 

"I think STACT has (to my knowledge) the best modular wall wine rack system in the world. Nothing else on the market beats it in terms of cost, functionality, and aesthetics.

Looking forward to future products and additions!"


Ryan - (via Kickstarter)

"WOW is all I can say! Got my zebrano STACT kit the other day and I was blown away - even better than I had imagined. No detail was overlooked; the packaging and set-up guide was extremely thought-out and sophisticated. I know I'm not the first one here to comment about the exceptional packaging - and it isn't something I normally pay much attention to when I buy something - but from the moment you get one of these in your hands, you can just tell what tremendous attention-to-detail went into every aspect of this product. I have no trouble mentioning STACT in the same breath as brands like Apple and Dyson when it comes to the sheer level of attention-to-detail and elegant, functional simplicity that STACT captures perfectly. It has become a conversation piece already, and I didn't have to work too hard to convince a couple friends to join the club. Not only is the product great, but Jamie and his team are truly great people who deserve every accolade that comes their way. Highly recommended, through and through!"


Jason - (via Facebook)

"Vision accomplished. That's 250 lbs of gravity-defying wine up on drywall thanks to Jamie Kasza and his great work at STACT. If only this kind of vision could extend to other areas of the home for functionality and aesthetics!"


John - (via Kickstarter)

"My STACT order arrived two days ago and it has quickly found it's way onto my wall. It looks amazing! As a Kickstarter project, I can't even begin to imagine the amount of work it took to take this from concept to reality, but it's clear that attention to detail is high priority at STACT - even the packaging looks incredible! There is no question this is a sure to be a huge success for STACT.

I can now take the excess bottles I had no place to store off my counter and fill my STACT wine wall. And, since the wine wall just went up today, no one has seen it yet but there are many who are anxious to see the finished product and I have no doubt they'll be impressed. It's fantastic design element and a creative feature sure to make a statement in all types of private residences or commercial applications.

This was well worth the wait! Thanks Jamie!"


Graham - (via Kickstarter)

"Incredible. That's the only word I can use to describe it, and I mean it in the truest sense of the word. I honestly can't believe how great Stact looks on my wall.

I ordered six White Oak panels in the hopes that I would be able to redecorate in time for STACT to arrive, and literally two days after I finished painting, my STACT units were available. The panels themselves look *even better* in person than they did on the site; the rich wood texture of the oak comes through beautifully. I was worried that the natural grain would be overpowered but it's just perfect.

I'm very impressed with the packaging. It's clear a lot of thought went into the design; there's a place for everything and everything is in its place. The instruction sheet might seem overwhelming at first, but if you take everything one step at a time it's really easy to follow.

The other thing that really impressed me was the clear amount of thought that went into all of the individual components. Installation was easy using the template to drill the holes. My advice: take the time and use a level to make sure you get everything perfect for the easiest install all the way to the end. Also, if you use an electric screwdriver to put the actual arms on, just tighten to finger tight, and then use a manual screwdriver to tighten the last bit so you don't strip the screws.

For anyone else who picked up a multi-pack: you're in for a treat. The brackets fit together perfectly and it looks stunning from the front and the side. I'm tempted to order two more right now to get the floor-to-ceiling effect. I've tested each bracket with a variety of different bottles (including other types of beverages other than wine) and Stact was rock solid in every case. I daresay the house might fall down in an earthquake, but this thing won't.

As for reactions I've already had friends and family ooh and ahhh over it. It really is stunning both in person and in photographs. It's a sophisticated accent that takes the room up a notch in a beautifully subtle way."


STACT ratingsKayla - (via Kickstarter)

"My STACT Wine Wall is absolutely wonderful. Talk about a project worth funding! The descriptions and advertisements did not disappoint. My wine bottles easily slide into the sleek wall structure, creating not just a convenient holder of my adult beverages, but also a beautiful, sleek design, appealing to any visitor of my home.

And that's one of the best parts of STACT -- It's definitely a conversation piece! So many friends have revelled at my new addition and even inquired for themselves. I can't help but share the love because that's the truth -- I truly love my STACT.

Thank you to Jamie and the effort put into this Project for creating such an innovative, thoughtful and beautiful product. Definitely worth the wait."
