Champagne Riddling Rack St Leban

French Champagne Riddling Rack

Vintage circa 1980's double sided Champagne riddling rack from Reims. Used since the 1830's, riddling racks are part of Champagne history. Bottles were stocked on the rack for a period of two months and spinned a quarter of a turn daily as part of the making process. This rack has been cleaned but still has remains of its past.  Made of solid oak with flat metal feet, can hold 120 bottles.
