Description: Arranging wine bottles in a rack leads, under certain circumstances, to a curious mathematical problem discussed in books by S. Wagon and R. Honsberger. The site arouse out of an attempt to illustrate their solution. The dynamic illustration quickly uncovered a flaw in their argument and helped discover an amendment and a generalization. Both are beautifully illustrated.
