Here I had to get it at a mining supply. It's welded wire. I found places in the States I could buy it but not here.

This looks like a woven wire mesh material (something like what is produced here: http://www.bwire.com )- possibly stainless steel?

If this is stainless steel - go to your local scrap yard - this stuff only costs about $.03 on the open marker - offer 10 bucks for a piece, and you should be all set. Metal scrap yards are the best for stuff like this!

Not woven. Here we call it welded wire. All the wire is just to sides (hope this makes sense) one side is vertical, other is horizontal, tack or press welded where they meet. Mine is not stainless but suppose it could be

Ah yes - Welded wire is quite different from woven wire mesh. Thanks for clarifying.

Ez2cy, not to be a distractor, but that seems like an awful lot of weight with no other supports. Looks to be about 14 bottles high. What will keep the wire from twisting or collapsing? Not trying to be nay sayer, but hope to avert a Avalanche. Roy. Ps I don't know the gauge or stiffness of the wire.
