Wine bottle & wine glass rack for new Transit Build. Ideas?

To all wine lovers,

I am in the design phase of my 2016 Transit build and as I contemplate the accessories "needed" on the top of my list is a way to safely carry at least 4 bottles of wine (ideally 6 because some of my trips last 3 days ;-)) and the appropriate stemware. I have seen the $$$ expensive Earthroamers with felt-lined, slide out shelves that contain such precious and fragile cargo but I can not find any similar aftermarket shelving options nor do I see evidence that sportsmobile modular builds anything similar.

I have perused the marine industry and find some items that hold glasses and stand up to rough seas but still nothing for the bottles. (www.everstillrack.com)

Can anyone advise me on this or should I just save money, trouble and time by buying cheap box wine and solo cups?

Thanks

Box wine is soooooo much better when you are in your van! It is compact, crushproof, and marvelously out of sight... as in invisible (compared to five one-liter bottles). It is cheap and varied, but you get what you pay for in boxed, just as in bottled. BlackBox is Christines fav... 3 liter box

We have L.L.Bean plastic two-piece wine glasses... they are great and tough/durable... ours have 30k vacation miles on 'em and look like new.

Thanks. As always, good to have someone emphasize the low-bid options when one is building one of these beasts. I will stop by the store tonight en route home for a Black Box!

Conqueror from South Africa has stemware holders built in.
My wife drops wine glasses when she is hammered, so we use that fancy plastic crap from REI.

We agree with twogone. The box wine and square Jack Daniels bottle behave nicely in our deep drawer. When we are boondocking, there are not a lot of bottles to drag around. Even though we prefer bottled beer, we take cans after the exciting "pop all of your caps" event we experienced on the bumpy elevation of Kaiser Pass Road on the way to Edison Lake.

Some boaters go with stainless wine glasses, so that may be an option if plastic doesn't appeal to you.

+1 we got some of these for home wine storage - they are very clever and somewhat compact.

For glasses we use:

Wine bottle drawer You can have a custom drawer built or build an insert to fit an existing drawer. (insert is just simple wooden partitions) . The insert can be removable
