how much does it weigh?
MnMan on Jan 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This weighs approximately 144 pounds.
What is the height between shelves?
aprescott on Aug 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi, I've not measured the height but it's just perfect for your average size bottles from Bordeaux and Napa. However, some of the Napa bottles can be quite thick and so I put those on the bottom shelf. Really love this fridge. It keeps the temp constant. It makes a little noise from time to time (kind of like motor purring sound but it's not all the time). I love it and recommend it!
Can shelves be adjusted to optimize space?
Larry P on Sep 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can remove shelves, but it's a little bit difficult. There is no other way to optimize space - there are no grooves in the walls between the existing shelves to make one shelf higher or lower, if that makes sense.

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.
Does it come on castors/wheels or solid legs?
David W on May 14, 2016
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
Will this hold 1 liter bottles (~13.5" tall)?
Mark S on Sep 22, 2016
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.
Does this unit come with leveling legs? How high can it be leveled?
A shopper on Aug 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It comes with 'leveling' legs on the front. The back are fixed. you will need a 3 way level, but fret not as these are common and can get them at any hardware store.
How long is the electrical cord?
Paul M on Apr 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's like 4 foot. Not a lot of power so a basic extension chord will work.
Is there any way to get this to turn itself back on after a power outage? Came home after vacation to lots of very warm wine.
Aaron P on Apr 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello Aaron,
I would recommend contacting our technical department @ 1-800-648-6058 (option 2).
They will be able to assist and trouble shoot best.
Thank you.
Can an optional lock be added to this cooler?
Nancy L on Oct 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't think it's possible. But a wrap around strap with locking feature similar to what you would use on luggage might be an option.
Would there be any issue if this unit was placed in a pantry type closet with louvered doors?
SSS storage on Jan 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You may have an issue depending on how much airflow is inside the pantry and how much air gets in and out throught the louvered doors. The unit needs at leaset 4"-6" all around for venting and heat build up can not exceed 80 degrees
Do your wine refrig have any way to be locked?
John Wayne on Oct 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: These do not have locks but we have many others that do.
Jack on Oct 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The best condition for the wine cellar to work properly would be in an environment where the ambient temperature does not exceed 77 degrees.
How do you remove a shelf for large bottle storage?
Tiger cub on Sep 17, 2014
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).
Thank you

why on May 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If the unit is used free standing it will not require a defrost cycle.
Hi, do these come in 240volts for use in Europe?
Tolu on Dec 23, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Please call Wine Enthusiast Customer Service at 800-356-8466 with your inquiry. A representative is available Monday through Friday 9am to 5:30pm EST.
Is the noise level of this unit similar to a refrigerator? Would it interfere with conversation if placed near a dinner table?
Andi on Nov 13, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The quiet energy efficient design of the Wine Enthusiast Classic Wine Cellar would not inter with a nearby conversation.
What are the watts and kwh rating?
Horner on Oct 22, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry. The Classic 92 is rated at 120 watts and is 115V. If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to us at 800 356 8466. Thank you again.
I bought one on saturday and trying to arrange the wines. How do you arrange the bottles in the cellar to store 92 bottles?
Ram on Jul 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: That's a great question Ram. While the images show the unit with 6 bottles on each of those 9 shelves, if you set up the bottles in a double deep configuration you can actually get 9 bottles per shelf. The bottom of the bottles will not be right next to one another like you see in the images on line, but you will certainly increase your capacity by setting it up as such. Plus you can get another case of wine in the bottom of the unit which gives you the 92 bottle capacity. If you have any questions feel free to call us at 800-356-8466. Thank you!
Can this unit be built in ? Or does it have to be free standing .
Phil on Jul 1, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry. As this unit is a rear vent compressor based unit, the best application is for it to be free standing in a larger spaced room. If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to us at 800 356 8466. Thank you again.
The photo shows 11 shelves with 6 bottles on each shelf. That would be 66 bottles. How does the unit hold 92 bottles? Does each shelf hold more than 6 bottles? Perhaps there is room behind the row of 6? Thanks
David on Mar 23, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Each shelf slides out and fits a few wine bottles behind the six shown in the picture.
Depth is 23 inches. Does this include cooling coils on back?
Bruce on Feb 27, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The coils are included in that depth. Please call us with further questions at 1-800-356-8466.
Does this product monitor humidity as well as temperature?
Erin on Jan 7, 2013
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.
Thank you
How are bottles placed on the shelves? Picture shows the bottom faces out. How does one access a bottle located in the back row? Can one reach into the back row from the front row or does one slide out an entire rack? How many bottles fit into one rack? Thanks, garyf
garyf on Jan 5, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Bottles are placed on the shelves bottom side out so you can read the label when you pull the shelf out. Back row bottles are accessed by pulling out the sliding shelf. There is not enough room to reach in and pull one out from the back. One entire shelf is accessed at a time. The 92 bottle total capacity is based on standard Bordeaux bottles. The number of bottles on a rack depends on the size of the bottles.
What is the maximum ambient temperature? Is it suitable for use in a garage in Texas?
Wes on Dec 18, 2012
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.
Thank you
Does the door have a locking mechanism to keep children and others from accessing contents?
John D. on Dec 12, 2012
BEST ANSWER: No the Wine Enthusiast Classic Wine Cellar (92 Bottle) does not have any type of lock on the door. It is intended to be stored in a secure area.
Does this unit cool via a compressor or is it thermal electric cooling?
JM on Dec 3, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question, the Classic Wine Cellar is cooled via a compressor unit and is a free-standing wine cabinet. If you would like more information on this or other wine cellars, please reach us at 800-356-8466
will this unit accommodate champagne bottles?
scott on Dec 3, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Champagne bottles can be stored on the top shelf. Otherwise you can remove one shelf and double stack.
what size bottles will fit on the shelves? Can the shelves be adjusted?
tritchie on Nov 25, 2012
BEST ANSWER: This product will fit a standard size bottle of wine. The shelves are not adjustable, but other sizes of this product may be available.
Can you advise the temperature range for this model?
Stephen on Nov 24, 2012

a bit noisy, keeps temperature
I got this unit a month ago. For the price and capacity, it is good buy. Bottle Capacity is tricky, manual says that it is calculated on Bordeaux bottles... which is true. To fit 92 bottles you will need to pile some bottles or put some on the back, which is fine.
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.
March 31, 2014
Thus far it is working great. It arrived in a timely manner and was set up by the delivery company. It appears to bea good buy for the price and capacity. My only criticism is claiming to hold 92 bottles but this no different from other manufacturers as they all base capacity on Bordeaux bottles heaven forbid you have burgundy.

92 bottle wine cellar ??
You need a PHD in wine bottle stacking to get even close to holding 92!!

Complete satisfaction
It is exactly as described. Most of my collection is the standard bottle sizes so I was able to fit 90 bottles. Product was delivered earlier then expected. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for basic wine storage.

Classic Wine Crllar 92 bottle
Cellar is exactly as described by Wine Enthusiast and in comments. It serves me very well as a no frills back up third cellar after I reached capacity issues. My wish list would include increasing the height a couple inches to provide more vertical space for larger bottles. I managed to store around 70 Pinot Noir bottles but pulling the racks out is a bit of a squeeze. Only other wish would be for a locking door.

Very Nice Cooler
I got this a couple of months ago and am very pleased with it so far. I don't understand the comment about getting a lot fewer bottles to fit in it as I can get 9 bottles to a shelf. Perhaps they don't realize some bottles fit in the back of the shelf.
August 26, 2016
nice unit
received unit timely and with a nice delivery crew; 92 bottles is overly optimistic- more like 65-75 depending on size; had some questions for customer service after delivery and they were very helpful- responded immediately! overall, satisfied with this purchase

I got it about a week ago and it looks really nice. Still haven't placed in the final spot yet since we are renovating, but cannot wait to see it filled up with tome nice bottles.

good for mass storage...but not the one you want for your showpiece
Just got this and filled it, so no comments on reliability/life expectancy.

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.
