Extremely quiet and functional machine. The only noise occurs when you first start up the machine to set it up, and when it draws out air from the bottle which is a very quick procedure. The whites and reds each stay at an appropriate temperature (though I do wish there were two custom temperature settings), and the bouquet and flavor remain for several days after opening. My guests are fascinated with the EuroCave Home Wine Bar - after seeing it in use in my home, it is now on their holiday wish lists. Best of all, if you love to cook with delicious wine but sometimes hate to open up a really nice bottle to use a small portion to make a dish or sauce, then this wine bar is for you! You will have days to drink that yummy wine after using it to create a fantastic dish (I prefer to use my typical drinking alcohols in cooking since heat concentrates flavor as the alcohol burns off - if the wine is not scrumptious to begin with it could detract from the end result of the dish or sauce).

Like one or two other reviews indicated, the unit doesn't seem to seal well, and thus, pumps several times a day to remove excess air. It doesn't seem to matter how I position the bottle under the pump top. I will try the reviewer's suggestion of placing something under the bottle to raise it, as maybe that will allow a tighter seal. Additionally, although the temperature of the red wine setting is perfect for drinking, I think it's too warm for storing an open bottle of wine for several days. Once opened, if I don't expect to finish the bottle within a day or two, I switch the temp setting to the white wine setting, so it will be cooler for longer storage. I have compared a wine kept in the SoWine with one I kept the same amount of time only using a pump topper that removes air and found the latter to preserve the flavor better. Again, I'll try the suggestion of putting something under the bottle and see if that helps!

Home Wine Bar Impresses

    Comments about SoWine Home Wine Bar:

    The EuroCave SoWine Home Wine Bar is an elegant and useful way to serve and protect two bottles of wine at the right temperature. Choose red or white, push down to evacuate air to protect, and open either of two doors to serve.

    Looking Ahead: One feature for a future model would be a digital temperature setting where one could set the precise temperature (e.g., young Spanish reds should be colder).

    One Flaw: The one annoyance that cost the SoWine Home Bar a five-star rating was the electrical connection which is not solid and loses power way too easily if any of the wires and/or transformer are nudged/moved.

          Comments about SoWine Home Wine Bar:

          Received this product as a Christmas Gift from my son. Started having problems with the unit at 12 months, and by 18 months the vacuum,and refrigeration units for both sides of the unit did not work. Contacted Wineenthusiast Customer Service and only received an offer for a discount on another unit. Burnt once, shame on you, burnt twice, shame on me. I have no intentions of wasting any more money on this product. Now I know why these units are also offered as a factory rebuilt. For the price of a small Wine refrigerator, I received one year of use from this unit. I strongly recommend that you do not purchase this product.

          Comments about EuroCave SoWine Home Wine Bar (Black):

          This is great. Only two negatives that can easily be tolerated. With both white or red settings the bottle compartment will build up condensation when you put a new bottle for proper temperature adjustment. This is explained in the manual and all that is required it to wipe out the small amount of water when you remove a bottle. One bottle of Cotes du Rhone had a neck opening so large that the vacuum system could not hold a seal. No other red or white bottles have given me any problem.

            Unfortunately only one of the chambers works properly - and this occurred on two separate machines. Wine bottles don't line up properly in the right hand chamber. Wine Enthusiast was helpful in promptly sending me a replacement machine however the second machine had the same defect

                It really works well. Wine tastes great even days later. Looks nice in the kitchen. We get to enjoy wine more because we never wanted to waste a fancy bottle for a couple of glasses worth. Now we can have some whenever we want.

                We were very excited to add this to our wine bar this year. We had some trouble getting the bottles to seal. The machine would cycle every 2-3 minutes to draw out the air. But a call to Wine Enthusiast solved our problem. They recommend we wipe the rubber seal with a damp paper towel to remove any grit or oil left over from the manufacturing process. Has worked flawlessly ever since.
