With the popularity of wine, your options for wine refrigerators (also called wine coolers and wine cellars) continue to grow. Most models are designed to be installed under a countertop; some styles come as either built-in or freestanding.

When shopping for refrigerated wine storage, consider these points:

  • To avoid temperature and humidity swings, many wine coolers use electronic controls that maintain ideal settings for whites, reds, and champagne.
  • If you choose glass instead of a solid panel, insist on tinted, ultraviolet-resistant doors to block harmful light. Look for a wine refrigerator with low-velocity fans and roller-mounted racks to minimize vibration.
  • For protection, you may want a unit with a lock as well as an alarm that signals the door was left open.
