Because of the price and storage capacity. It also matches the other wine cellars we already have.

This is a sharp looking unit with removable trays and large capacity. It is also reasonably priced.

best price for large number of bottles

Perfect wine storage for us - we have a non-glamorous cellar that is serviceable but not great for our general collection . We have 3 small units - which means everything is divided up. This will consolidate a portion of the collection that is in need of longer, safer cellaring!

Price and quietness.

the original one I would have chosen was out. This was the next best option for our son.

I was looking for a wine fridge of the same one I had. The company doesnt make it anymore or they way I like it with the all black fridge. I look at Wine Enthusiast because I get the magazine all the time. I saw this fridge and its the same size that I have and the rest is history.

I wanted a basic wine cellar. It will be in our garage so there was no point in buying a fancy model.

I have one of the original models that is at least 15 years old. It has served me well. Moving and leaving the old unit behind for the new owners. No reason to change to a different model.
Charles W on Jun 10, 2014
Attractive price, reasonable delivery date.

SOPHIE R on Jul 3, 2015
Does this unit maintain relative humidity in the ~70% range for long term storage?
Ken T on Jul 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This unit does everything I ask of it, and I recommend it highly as a cost-effective solution to wine storage, but I am totally clueless about its relative humidity. I have absolutely no idea the effect of humidity on wine storage.

A Real Classic
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!!

Revised review - this is a terrific unit
I had an issue with the legs, but after persisting a bit, this was swiftly dealt with

Great entry level cooler!
Great entry level cooler at an attractive price. The only addition should be a door lock.

Entry Level Wine Storage
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 product, bad service, bad delivery
Even though I declined the extended warranty, Wine Entusiast kept houding me about it. I received 3 seperate emails that kept asking me about purchasing the warranty. "White Glove" delivery is misleading. They were just regular delivery men. They did a good job of placing the item in the right spot, but refused to adjust the legs or to balance the unit. They also left the power cord under the unit.

Awesome! Wish I had ordered 2!
This was our 2nd cellar we have purchased, this one the shelves hold the bottles of wine in place better and other than the standard wine bottle do actually fit. Which is a huge plus! I'm really considering purchasing a 2nd one and getting rid of the original one we purchased a couple of years ago!

So far so good!
The cellar was delivered promptly and set up in our wine basement profesionally. However, we plugged it in on a Saturday and all of the buttons worked except the on/off switch. So we unplugged it and went through a tedious attempt at customer service, which had to wait until Monday. As it turns out, the on/off switch needs to be held down for a few seconds for it to work. Why in the world wasn't that simple instruction in the owner's manual? Especially when the service tech said "we hear that problem all the time". Sheesh.
