Integrated wine coolers

Things to consider when choosing your new integrated wine cooler


Capacity is simply how many bottles of wine your cooler can house. Manufactures usually list the number of bottles that their wine coolers can hold, but be aware that the numbers they provide are usually based on Bordeaux-style bottles.

Number of zones

Most built-in wine coolers will come with 1 zone, meaning all your bottles will be kept at a similar temperature. Some wine coolers – usually larger ones – offer dual zones. That means you can store your red and white wines at different temperatures.

Extra features

  1. Security lock – For securing your cooler.
  2. Touchscreen temperature display – Allows you to monitor and control the temperature from outside the cooler.
  3. Extension shelves – Make it easier to access wines in the back of your under-counter wine cooler and to see the labels.
