Wine Writing Team on January 3, 2020 0 Comments How do you choose a wine cooler? There are so many options available, it’s hard to know what you need if you don’t really know what you want! Different wine coolers fit different lifestyles. The first question you need to answer is why are you shopping for a wine fridge? Whether you’re a wine collector who needs a large capacity unit or you live in a small apartment and need to find a space saver that holds both wine and other beverages, we’ve compiled customers’ favorite wine coolers of 2019 based on best sellers and features. Best Free-Standing EdgeStar 19 Inch Wide 38 Bottle Capacity Free Standing Wine Cooler with Dual Zones, LED Lighting and Reversible Door Why it’s a customer favorite Customers love that this wine cooler is versatile. It’s attractive, runs quietly and maintains temperature with its dual temperature control that allows you to keep your whites cooler than your reds. “Our wine cooler looks very good next to our cherry cabinets. It is just the right size for what we needed – we love the dual temperature control – and we think it is a very good value.” – KarTim49 “Like shopping at home for a chilled bottle of wine!” – Chrispy Best Built-In Edgestar 24 Inch Wide 151 Bottle Capacity Built-In or Free Standing Single Zone Wine Cooler with Even Cooling Technology Why it’s a customer favorite This built-in wine cooler offers a large capacity, and can seamlessly blend into your kitchen, while giving you easy access to your favorite bottles. “Great value…perfect for our needs. We needed to replace an old climate controlled storage cabinet with something more modern. This unit is nicely made and accommodates our wines very well. Excellent value. We have it in our garage, tho, I can see wher e it would work very well “built in” to the kitchen as well.” – Wine Lover “Wonderful wine storage. Fast shipping! Unit was very well packaged. Easy to assemble and set up. Looks great in our kitchen nook. Quiet, can’t feel it vibrate. We set ours to 53 because it does fluctuate 2 degrees +/-. So far I’ve got a lot of compliments on how beautiful the unit looks.” – AlphaRomeo702 Best Luxury Avallon AWC241TDZRH 141 Bottle Dual Zone Built-In Wine Cooler – Right Hinge This wine cooler has high-end appeal with its 13 convenient roll-out shelves and optional elegant display shelf to show off your favorites or store larger, Burgundy-style wine bottles. It’s alternating illumination allows you to alternate your lighting between a bright, white LED or a soft, blue LED, and the stainless steel accents make it look as good as it performs. “Absolutely gorgeous! We were going to go smaller but ultimately want to have a built in wine refrigerator so we purchased this and have gotten tons of compliments. It’s truly beautiful, quiet and the display rack is what made this our front runner when we decided to buy. The different light settings gives it even more class and we have been so happy with our purchase! Highly recommend.” – HappyCustomer “Did a lot of research on this unit and finally bit the bullet. Could not be happier with my selection. Shipping was on time with no damage. The unit is absolutely perfect. Even the larger Pinot Noir bottles fit the shelves without scraping the labels off. The shelves slide smoothly even with a full load of wine bottles. I got the dual zone and the temps are holding within one degree using a very accurate temp probe from my shop, that is amazing for a unit at this price point. Love the blue LED lights, adds a touch of class. I store the magnums on the bottom and it works out perfect. Put me down as one very pleased customer.” – Burfman Best Compact Edgestar Built-In 6 Inch Wide 7 Bottle Capacity Compact Wine Cooler Why it’s a customer favorite This compact wine cooler is perfect for small spaces while still being aesthetically pleasing. “I am so happy with this small skinny wine storage unit! I remodeled my kitchen and when showing it, everyone’s eyes go right to this unit…and several people have gone home and ordered one themselves. Even my contractor!” – Karen With A K “There are so many things I love about this wine cooler. This is the perfect unit for that awkward old oven tray cabinet that were built into kitchens. Who needs a space for oven trays when you can fill it with wine? It brings an updated look to your kitchen or bar with the stainless steel door and adds a more useful purpose. Also, if you don’t have the space to build a full size unit or put a freestanding unit, this gives you another option to store your delicious wine at the right temperature.” – Torrey V. Best Large Capacity Avallon 24 Inch Wide 151 Bottle Capacity Built-In or Free Standing Single Zone Wine Cooler with Interior Lighting Why it’s a customer favorite If you’re an avid wine collector, then one of your primary concerns is where you’re going to store all your bottles so that they’re able to age in a favorable environment. This wine cooler allows you to have your wine when you want it in its best state. “The unit arrived on time and fit perfectly into the space prepared. Appearance, fit, and finish are really good. Especially like the ability to arrange shelves to fit large format bottles. Standard shelf settings are still a challenge with the over sized 750’s the wineries are intent on producing, but that is the case with most brands. I would recommend this unit and will probably buy another soon.” – Anonymous “This unit fits my needs all the way around, easy to set up and a good looking unit as well, holds the temperature that you set and plenty of storage for wines, shelves can be adjusted to accommodate different size bottles.” – Paul Just like the wine aging process, finding the best wine cooler for you shouldn’t be rushed. Wine needs just the right environment to maintain its quality and freshness, and you need the right wine cooler to fit your lifestyle. Now that you know the customer favorites from 2019, here’s to finding the perfect wine storage solution in 2020.
