10 Best Large Capacity Wine Fridges on the Market

A large capacity wine fridge is a necessity for any serious wine collector, frequent entertainer, or anybody who wants to ensure that their wine is always at perfect serving temperature.

Wine fridges and coolers are ideal for long term wine storage as they help ensure proper conditions (such as temperature and humidity) for wine to age in bottle. Furthermore, if you have a large or valuable collection, a temperature controlled storage solution is certainly a worthwhile investment.

Most Stylish

While your large capacity wine fridge needs to have certain features – the ability to store the bottles you need to, temperature control settings, energy efficiency, and so forth – it might as well look good at the same time! Here are a few picks that don’t sacrifice brains for beauty, or vice versa.

Top Choice – Lanbo Dual Zone 287-Bottle Wine Cooler with French Doors

French doors

Tempered UV resistant glass

Dual temperature zones

Can be built-in or freestanding

Cons

One of the more expensive units on the list

Allavino Tru-Vino 177-Bottle Wine Fridge

Pros

177 bottle capacity

Adjustable shelves

Temperature and humidity control

Quiet

Low vibration

Energy efficient

Cons

Single temperature zone provides less versatility

A more expensive option

Most large wine fridges on the market are stainless steel with wooden shelves. This all black unit with dark frosted glass stands out, not only because of its looks, but also for all the features it offers.

Beyond the chic looks, this Allavino unit includes Tru-Vino technology, which nearly eliminates any temperature fluctuations. Additionally, Allavino’s FlexCount shelving can accommodate a wide variety of bottle shapes and sizes.

However, with only a single temperature zone, it may not offer the versatility you need, depending on your collection.

Finally, the product dimensions for this unit are 26″D x 30″W x 78″H.


Best Features

Wine coolers range from very basic to quite hi-tech. The key is selecting a unit that has the features that make the most sense for your intended use, while still staying in your budget range.

The temperature range for the upper zone ranges from 40°F-55°F while the lower zone keeps temperatures between 55°F-65°F.

Slightly smaller total bottle capacity

This stylish unit not only features dual zones, but the two zones are actually two separate independent sections, allowing for ultimate organization of your wine collection. It does have a smaller capacity than the top pick, but the extra features keep it as a solid runner-up.

The product dimensions for this unit come in at 26.8″D x 23.4″W x 64″H.

Conclusion

For wine to age gracefully, there are a few essential conditions it requires – cool, consistent temperatures, humidity, protection from vibrations and UV light, and space to lay horizontally.

When selecting a large capacity wine fridge, you should be sure to choose one that provides these essentials. Beyond that, it is a matter of personal taste, budget, and size constraints/preferences.

While aging bottles for years, or even decades, can provide great satisfaction, let’s not forget that wine is meant to be enjoyed. 

Beyond ensuring that your bottles will continue to age properly, a wine fridge allows you to keep your favorites at the ideal temperature so you can enjoy whenever you feel like popping a cork. Cheers!
