Choosing the Right Wine Refrigerator

Wine is an ancient delicacy, and for wine lovers throughout the area, it’s an experience to be savored. That’s what makes having a professionally installed and service wine refrigerator so important. You need to protect your investment, whether your restaurant’s sommelier needs to have options at his disposal for your guests’ discriminating palette, or you run a large wine shop that needs several refrigerators to feature its most expensive product. You need an excellent wine refrigerator (or perhaps multiple models) to ensure that your wine sales are successful.

Whether you’re in the market for a new wine refrigerator, or you find that your existing wine refrigerator no longer functions as it should, and you’re looking to replace it, here are some considerations to take into account.

How many bottles of wine do you have?

This likely fluctuates quite a bit throughout the year, depending on your rotation of stock, the timing of shipments, and so on. But you probably have some sense of how many bottles you need to keep at perfect temperature. Refrigerators come in a wide variety of sizes, mostly determined by the number of bottles they can hold at any given time. Whether you need a relatively modest 80-bottle unit or a large unit that will hold well over 300 bottles, our professionals can help you decide.

How many zones do you need?

Another consideration is how many zones the wine refrigerator has. This comes in handy when storing wine, rose, and red wines in the same unit. This typically ranges from one to three zones, although further options are available for those looking for customized systems. This ensures that each type of wine is stored at an optimal temperature.

Where will it be located?

Location is key. Whether you need a simple unit to sit behind closed doors away from your customers, or an elegant front-room statement, a local wine refrigerator specialist can help you determine the best option.

There are additional considerations, of course, including your budget as well as the various features available in today’s wine refrigerator market. Call our team today to get started.
