This wiki has been updated 28 times since it was first published in February of 2015. A wine cooler is not just a sticky, sweet cocktail. If you've run out of space in the refrigerator for your whites, or want to maintain reds at what used to be room temperature before central heating and cooling, check out our selection of wine fridges. They're like having your very own cellar without having to hire a contractor and tunnel under your home to make one. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

January 22, 2021:

Wine coolers come in a range of capacities to suit every home, and we have represented that variety here with models like the Wine Enthusiast VinoView, which accommodates up to 155 bottles, and the Koolatron Urban WC06, which is designed to keep just six bottles chilled and ready to drink. Just as we realize that not everybody has an extensive wine collection and room to house a huge cooler for it, we also understand that some people enjoy beer just as much as their vino, which is why we think many readers will appreciate the NewAir AWB-400DB and Antarctic Star INAS90, both of which have dedicated sections for cans.

Many people incorrectly assume that when they say you should store red wine at room temperature, that means you can just leave it in the pantry. In truth, all wine, whether white or red, should be stored at somewhere between 40°F and 65°F, the average temperature of a wine cellar, not a home's living spaces. It is also important that the humidity levels not exceed 50 percent and the temperature not fluctuate more than five degrees or so. Since most Americans don't have underground wine cellars with a stable temperature and humidity level, we have to make up for it with one of these wine coolers. If you have a lot of bottles to store and want to keep your reds and whites separate, so the whites will be stored at the perfect drinking temperature, take a look at the Aaobosi YC-103C, Ivation 24 Dual Zone, and Kalamera KRC-40DZB. All of these can accommodate 20 or more bottles. The NewAir AWB-400DB is a good choice for somebody who wants to keep their beer, soda, and wine in one place, since it has dedicated shelves for each of them. If you need something very slim that won't take up too much floor space, the Danby Silhouette DWC276BLS and Wine Enthusiast 272 will fit the bill. For the consumers with little room to spare or who don't feel the need to keep too much wine on hand, the affordable Westinghouse WWT060MB and Nutrichef PKTEWC12 are suitable options. Those who want something that looks as fancy as the expensive bottles they will store inside of it should definitely turn to the double-door Kalamera KRC-40DZB.
