EuroCave Confort Viellitheque V-264W WINE Cabinet - please let me know the external temperature this cooler needs to be stored. Would like to put it in an unfinished basement, which gets to be about 40 degrees in winter. Does this need a filters?
Hhyc2009 on Nov 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have just received my cooler so there is no long term experience, but so far I am delighted with the product. According to the specs the unit will perform normally even cooler than 40 degrees. It does need filters, which are simple to install and change. A package of 4 is recommended with the purchase, and the specs say they should be changed yearly. You didn't ask, but so far I think the advertised capacity is on target. I am 3/4 full with a variety of bottles and have seen nothing that suggests I won't be able to store at least 140 bottles.
I am looking for a 30" wide cooler with about 60-65 inch height, is this size available?
mickey on Oct 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The EuroCave Premier M Wine Refrigerator would fit that space as it is less than 60 inches tall and only 27 inches wide. Please note that it is over 27 inches deep and requires 3 inches of clearance in the back for airflow. EuroCave refrigerates do cost more than other brands but it is well worth the money.
Love this product, BUT we have two of the racks constantly popping off the rail on the right hand side in the back. This keeps happening with even only a few bottles on the rack. Has anybody had this happening and if so, how can it be fixed? Thanks!
Birthe S on Jun 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Birthe - I had the same problem. My first approach was to remove the problem shelves and an equal number of shelves without the issue and put each in the other's place. That resolved one of the problems. I resolved the second one by folding some paper to make a "spacer" that I slid between the track and wall of the unit - in essence, narrowing the distance between the tracks. Not exactly high tech, but I have not had any problems since. I should add that I am very happy with the performance of the unit and would buy another if more capacity is needed.
Can this unit sit on a cabinet to get it at a higher level?
Scott P on Jan 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That is certainly a possibility. Keep in mind though that the cellar in itself, empty, weighs 174 pounds. When sitting on the ground, the top shelf is just below eye level for someone 5' 10".
Can you remove door to move the closet into a confined area or closet?
Allison E on Jul 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The door comes off as it can become a right of left handed door, but remember, you need to have space all around the unit for air to flow and our, or it won't work correctly. I wouldn't "jam" into a tight space. I actually have mine in my living room. It's part of the decor now. Ken Kanouse
How do I change the humidity and know the humidity levels. Do I need to fit it with a hygrometer as well?
Lall S on Jun 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It doesn't keep absolute perfect constant humidity, but it does simulate the humidity in a cave, so it fluctuates a little, but it's a heck of a lot better than a wine fridge. Ken
Can this wine cellar be out in a garage that is not climate controlled?
Terry W on Nov 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have had two units in my garage in Tucson -- Arizona summers are hot, -- one for about seven years, the other for about five. The controller (but not the compressor) just went in the older, but I am told that is pretty good life, so . . .
My unit is brand new and when the compressor is running it makes another noise along with it. Almost sounds like trying to breathe through a snorkel. It lasts about 4 secs and then stops for 4 secs. Is this normal or should the unit be looked at?
Ken K on Aug 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi ken, I purchased the same Eurocave wine refrigerator about 2 yrs ago and have never noticed any kind of noise. I have been very happy with my unit. Perhaps you should give the unit a few weeks to settle in and reassess the noise issue. Best of luck. Steven S
How many bottles will it hold??
Barbara C on Feb 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Nominally 120 bottles on the 10 sliding shelves. If bottles are not regular Bordeaux style then one needs to become a bit more creative. I also get 10 to 12 magnums (1.5 L) in the bottom storage area of the cooler. The image shows three rows of normal bottles stored beneath the bottom wooden sliding shelf but that is really pushing it. Maximum ~140 but with the caveat that if any bottle is not standard size storage capacity is reduced.
I have had this wine cooler since July of 2017 and am totally satisfied with it. The wooden sliding shelves are wonderful and the noise level is quite subdued. When it is working it tends to have a slightly high pitch but still quite unobtrusive.
Can this unit be placed into a wall? if so what is the recommended spacing top, sides and back of the unit.
Mike M on Aug 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would not. It is rear vented. Thats not to say someone would put in into a wall. If so leave at least 4 inches all around. Have a dedicated circuit. I beleive if you put this unit in a wall the unit life span would be shortened considerably. I would always recommend a unit that is front vented. I put mine in the garage on a dedicated circuit with second unit. Works great winter and summer. It has an ambient temp range from 32 to 95 or so.
Can wine in a Eurocave be safely stored in a garage in which temperatures sometimes exceed 100 degrees F?
Robert J on Nov 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have my Eurocave inside. I previously had a much less expensive wine chiller in our garage that exceeded 100 degrees over half of the year. That unit performed with any problems for years. A year ago I gave it to my neighbor who also has it in the garage and it works without problems. I would advise calling Wine Enthusiast to get their expert opinion on the Eurocave's ability to function without problems in extreme, prolonged heat.
Life span of a V264 wine refrigerator?
Don H on Apr 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am considering a second one now because our collection has grown, but we've had a Eurocave since 1999 and it's working great. I think it helps that it's been in the same spot all along.
How well would this unit work if kept in a garage in a hot humid climate?
Jeffrey W on Mar 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I live on the Texas Gulf Coast and keep a EuroCave Premiere M cellar in my garage. My garage is insulated, but otherwise isn't conditioned. I do keep the garage door closed in the summer to keep the garage internal temperature from reaching ambient outdoor temperatures. The EuroCave cellar has functioned very well, maintaining the desired 55 degree internal temperature without significant variation.
Will the individual shelves easily hold the largest size champagne and pinot bottles without scraping against the top shelf?
Robert H on Oct 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have Pinot bottles from three different wineries and do not have any issues with the bottles scraping the bottom of the next higher shelf.
I read in the manual that the spacer ensures 7 cm (~2-3/4") behind the unit. Can someone tell me for certain whether this means the actual total depth required for this unit is 27-1/4" + 2-3/4" = 30"?

The reason I wonder if it is somewhat less than 30" is that the 7 cm spacer is afixed to the back top of the unit and within that spacer depth is the evaporator (grille) that I assume is included in the 27-1/4" depth. I have a maximum depth in my planned location of about 29". Thank you.
Joan W on Oct 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have the spacer installed on the back. Just measured from the wall to the front of unit and it is just under 18 3/4". Hope that helps
does this cellar allow for humidity control?
lall S on Jun 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Lall,
Yes, all Eurocave wine cellars will maintain relative humidity.

Thank you.
Can you purchase another shelf for this unit or can you purchase a presentation shelf?
Michele M on May 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I haven't done it, but I believe the racks are adjustable in height...but that means you not come close to reaching the 141 bottles promised for this model.
How is the humidity inside the unit maintained and adjusted?
Jason J on Dec 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The answer from John explained how humidity is formed and where it "goes" (viz 'adheres to internal aluminum walls', but ignores the question of how it's ADJUSTED.
Since his statement says it adheres to the aluminum walls is he saying it therefore is NOT a problem and doesn't have to be adjusted? If that's the case then the answer is correct, but it's not obvious to a layman. Is the humidity's adherence to the walls a solution. Having the correct humidity for wine storage is important. Too little and corks dry out and air seeps in, too much and mold can form on the corks.
I'd be very interested in a more complete answer before spending thousands on a unit without a humidifier.
what amp outlet is reuired to plug this unit into?
russ s on Nov 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This unit requires a 15 amp dedicated circuit as well as a 110 V three prong outlet.
how many bottles of wine can this hold?
randy r on Oct 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: As photographed with 10 rolling and the bottom of the unit the capacity is 141 based on Bordeaux bottles. If you use a combination of bottles sizes that capacity will change. I would also suggest a capacity approximately 120 or 130 bottles.
I'm interested in a high quality wine fridge for both red and white wines. The fridge will be for long-term storage but I want to be able to pull any bottle and have it be at an appropriate drinking temp. Is this the correct model?
J on May 2, 2015
Eurocave is definitely the best choice for long term storage!
You may want to consider the Eurocave 5290 Professional Dual Zone model.
The item number is 282 29 01 3X.
I need to buy a new charcoal filter. Where can I buy one?
Debbie on Feb 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Karl,
You can either place the order on our website or call your order in.

Thank you.
How many sliding shelves come standard with the EuroCave Premiere M unit?
Glenn L on Oct 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 10 rolling or sliding shelves

Outstanding product
Highly recommend this unit. The "Hand of the Sommelier" shelving system allows bottles of various sizes to easily be accommodated. The unit is extremely quiet - you cannot hear the compressor when it is running. The EuroCave construction is first rate and the company's reputation is well earned. Although the unit does not have a humidifier, I placed a moistened sponge in the storage area below the moveable racks and this enables a proper humidity level to be maintained in our very arid climate.

Love This Product!!!
Unlike most of you, I purchased this wine cooler in January 2002; and it has served me well since then. I have never had a problem with it, except to replace the little battery every 12-15 months.

In fact the reason I am online is to purchase another smaller version, since I am running out of space!! My only regret is that is not a smaller version of this Euro Cave. I hope I have the same good fortune with my next purchase!!

Most accomodating
I conducted an exhaustive search for a wine cooler that would accommodate the Burgundy size bottles and just about gave up. I am a design engineer and cannot understand why cooler designers just don't get it. I was told the Euro Cave had adjustable shelves and could be modified for the bigger bottles. Several other brands advertise that their coolers can accommodate the larger bottles but watch out it is not true. I started loading my new EuroCave single zone medium cooler and it easily holds the Burgundy bottles with about 3/8th inches to spare. No adjustments are needed. In fact, it comes so close to holding a Champaign bottle but just barely nicks it. It actually works as the drawer still easily open without pulling adjacent drawers open. I can also "feel" the better quality. The only thing I don't understand is why Wine Enthusiast does not promote this feature. It really separates this cooler from all the aggravatingly under designed misfit coolers. I can comfortably load any wine (standard) in this cooler and stash the Champaign bottles in the bottom open storage area where they belong in a single zone cooler. This is a great and fun cooler.

to the top
I belong to seven wineries (used to belong to 13) and have had MULTIPLE stand along single zone and dual zone wine cabinets. It would seem that they ALL break after their warranty is done. THIS WINE FRIG LOOKS LIKE IT SHOULD BE THE EXCEPTION. It is certainly nicely made and the shelves are superb in their design.

The cellar itself is great
It's a bit louder than I thought it would be, though it really isn't an issue. Let it sit 48+ hours as instructed and after turning it on it cooled from 72.3 F to 55.1 F in a very short period of time. Storage capacity is based on 750 ml Bordeaux bottles. Those bottles of Australian Shiraz and California Cabernet will greatly reduce storage capacity, so I'm glad I got an M model instead of an S.

The instructions come in several languages, though the translation to English left much to be desired. Be prepared to figure some things out yourself.

The people who performed delivery did a great job. I can't say enough about them. They worked efficiently and were polite and careful with the product.

The people who called to schedule delivery did a poor job. They confirmed a Friday delivery between 3-6 pm, but then said I was never assigned to the driver's route. I asked for delivery Saturday between 3-6 pm and was told it would happen and they would call to confirm, but they never did. The driver called me at 8:15 a.m. Saturday and said he would be arriving in 30 minutes. We were about to walk out the door (which is why I wanted delivery in the afternoon) and had to go back inside and wait for delivery.

I was to receive a four-pack of charcoal filters but they were not included with the delivery. I contacted W.E. customer service two days ago but as of writing this nobody has responded.

In short, the purchase process was fantastic. Actual delivery was fantastic. The product is fantastic so far. Customer service has thus far been non responsive and the schedulers for delivery did a very poor job.

6 1/2 years and going strong!
I purchase a Performance 183 in October 2009. I've kept it full, clean it out once per year and change filters. Perfect for my small porch in a condo setting. Can't recommend this product enough!

We have had Viking, and Vinotemp and both were losers
This EuroCave is what we should have purchased twenty years ago. It is inside, do not hear it, looks great and keeps the temp.

I like it so much I may get another
This holds a lot of Bordeaux bottles but those blamed Riesling shapes take up more than their fair share of space.

Great purchase. Performance is as advertised.
After much research and comparisons with other brands, I went with the EuroCave Premier M. It was the size I was looking for and in the price range I wanted. It is performing just as advertised. Really quiet, smooth rolling shelves and sleek design. I especially have come to like the individual bottle cradles that are easily adjustable by sliding side to side and equally easy to remove as needed. I had a free standing cabinet made from reclaimed south Louisiana cypress that it now sits in and makes a beautiful showing for my collection. I would definitely advise anyone looking to properly cellar their babies to strongly consider EuroCave. The customer service during the ordering process was handled by a knowledgeable person who answered any and all questions I had before the purchase was official and I have been contacted a few times since to make sure the unit is delivering as designed.
