The Classic 166 is a compressor based one temp unit that has 14 slide out shelves and is affordable for the everyday collector. Perfect for the basement, pantry or game room, this unit comes with everything that you need to get started right out of the box.

The Classic 166 comes with 14 epoxy coated slide out shelves that can house all your standard 750ml's bottles and they are removable if you would like to store larger format bottles such as Champagne.

The sleek double paned tinted glass door allows one to see their collection on display while you turn on the LED lighting!

The temperature setting is ideal for all your entertainment needs as it has a range anywhere from 41-64 degrees. With an ambient temperature of 80 degrees, just be sure to place in a conditioned space and leave a few inches off the back wall for many years of enjoyment out of your new Wine Enthusiast Classic 166 Wine Cellar!!

If you are looking for an entry level storage cellar, this one will work. However, the unit is anything but quiet so plan on putting it in a closet or your basement. If I could do it over, I would spend the extra and purchase a Eurocave or the N'Finity series. For now, I have this one.

    Good value

    Pros

    • Attractive Design
    • Low price
    • Quiet

    Cons

    • Can Not Adjust Shelving

    Best Uses

      Comments about Wine Enthusiast Classic Wine Cellar (166 Bottle):

      Inexpensive, no-frills, high-capacity storage. After reading other reviews, I was a bit worried about noise level, as the only spot we had for this was in a doorless walk-in closet / storage room just off the bedroom. But it ended up being no problem -- one doesn't hear either the fan or the compressor unless one is actually in the same room with the unit. Fan cycles very frequently. Temperature control is a bit imprecise, fluctuating plus/minus 2 degrees according to readout. Overall, a great unit for the price.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Local delivery service was superb: on-time, very professional, moved unit up tight circular staircase with great care.

      Comments about Wine Enthusiast Classic Wine Cellar (166 Bottle):

      [Note: this is a revised review, now that my issue with the feet was resolved (see Service/Delivery Comments). I'm not able to revise or edit my prior review so am adding this one]

      Overview:

      This unit will surprise you. Although it's budget-priced, the design is sleek and modern, and it's solidly built. I bought two and wouldn't hesitate to buy another. The only downside is that it isn't "whisper quiet" (although I don't know which are), but that doesn't matter to me since I put it in my garage.

      Pros:

      -Sleek, modern design
      -Holds a consistent temperature (+/- 1-2 degrees)
      -Tinted glass front
      -Bottles fit nicely onto shelves, i.e. they don't roll around
      -Can readily fit 9 bottles/shelf (including pinot-sized), possibly more depending on bottle size. This conservatively gives you 117 bottles on the roll-out shelves, plus you can stack another 20-25 on the bottom, bringing capacity to 130 or more
      -Shelves can easily be removed to stack bottles, but I feel this is too unstable and prefer the convenience of rolling out the shelves to look at the wine
      -Leveler at front right to adjust for uneven floors

      Cons:

      -Not "whisper quiet"
      -Shelves are removeable but not adjustable
      -No lock

      The unit looks great. Although I bought it for garage storage, it would fit inside as well, with a sleek, modern design.

            Comments about Wine Enthusiast Classic Wine Cellar (166 Bottle):

            We were so excited when we purchased this and instantly got a call to schedule shipping. The WE reps have been lovely, but we got a call for delivery less than 24 hours in advance. I informed them that the 4 hour window didn't work and the assured me they'd be there before the window to work with my schedule. They called an hour after they were supposed to be there and informed me they wouldn't make it. I called WE over a week after this because we still didn't have a date to receive it!! It is now a week after that!! We are so disappointed!!!! It has been 5 weeks since we ordered our fridge and we are still waiting.
