Wine Enthusiast Classic Wine Cellar (92 Bottle)
Item # 269 01 92 03
So I imagine if you removed a few shelves and stacked bottles on top of each other, you could pack more inside, although I've never tried that.
the unit is not on wheels but sits on solid legs- I have had my unit for 5 months and am very pleased but there is one major caveat- it cannot hold 92 bottles- the best you will do is 60-75, and you may be able to put some splits on their side on the shelves- that being said, I like the unit
I'm assuming that a one liter bottle is the standard Bordeaux or Cab bottle and those fit fine with plenty of room behind the bottles. I don't have any long German wine bottles but they would probably fit fine too. You should verify that with Wine enthusiast. I like the wine cellar but I give you these negatives: 1. Mine is noisy but that may be because mine is on a slightly uneven floor. I think if I leveled it on the floor it would become quiet. (I have no time to try that during Fantasy Football season.) 2. Fitting 92 bottles in this cellar requires a degree in spatial engineering. It can be done but you need to have one bottle facing one way and the next facing the other way. Then you can have some bottles lying in the back or...get a degree in spatial engineering. I store about 80 bottles at a time but if an extra case arrives by surprise I can usually work it in somehow or we drink a bottle or two.
My cellar holds the temperature perfectly. If I rummage around in it or unload new bottles into it the temperature rises quickly but when the door closes it goes back down quickly also.
Good luck with whatever you buy.
If you line up the u grooves on the sides of the shelf and pull up the shelf will come out.
If you are still having difficulty you can contact our Technical department @ 1-800-648-6058 (option # 2).
This cellar will cool at a more gradual pace than a refrigerator, therefore creating more suitable humidity levels. However, our Eurocave wine cellars will actually maintain relative humidity naturally. Please give one of our Wine Storage Specialists a call @ 1-800-356-8466 if you have any further questions.
I would say once it gets over 85 degrees you may or may not have a problem. You may want to take a look at our Eurocave Comfort 266 in solid door, which is better suited for your type of situation. Please give one of our wine storage specialists a call to further discuss.
Yes, the glass is protected on this model which is necessary for proper storage. Both short term and long tern. A solid door will have a higher insulation value, but may not be necessary if the cellar is not located in a garage. Please contact one of our Wine Cellar Specialists directly if you have any further questions @ 1-800-356-8466.
Finish is ok, other units look better with a better finish; this is all iron, all black.
Noise: It is as loud as a refrigerator. I was expecting less noise but it is as noise as a refrigerator twice as big. I wish I had room for it in my laundry room, but I have placed it on my dinning.
Overall, it is a good buy for the price. To get rid of the noise you would probably need to invest on a high end product, which costs twice or more.

We have a beautiful large Le Cache in our main room, but needed more wine storage. Since we already have something that is more like furniture/a decorative piece, we bought this purely for wine storage overflow. It is perfect for that. Each shelf is just high enough to store the wider chardonnay bottles (7 per shelf-alterating back and front) and we got 2 rows in at the bottom. Total of about 72 of these bigger bottles.
Shelves have a pin that keeps them from coming out to far where the weight would risk it falling out, so they only come out just enough to load. So not a great fridge for perusing what you want to drink next, but again perfect for packing them in. The per bottle price of this is as good as you will get anywhere for a decent name brand. Costco sometimes has these, so check there as well before finalizing.
