How many champagne bottles will this unit hold?
Jennifer M on Oct 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can get about 10 on the bottom of the unit - the shelves are too close together to accommodate champagne type bottles without taking one or more out to provide clearance. By taking out 3 shelves you could easily get 40+ bottles in.
Do Burgundy bottles clear the shelf above of do they scrape?
Brian M on Oct 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Depends on the shape of the Burgundy bottles, We have some classic Burgundy bottles that clear nicely. We have some fatter Burgundy bottles that do scrape a bit, but do not block the shelf operation.
Since it is back venting, does it require space between the wall, or can it be placed against the wall?
Chris S on Sep 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Chris S, Yes this unit requires a minimum of 2" in between the back of the unit and the wall for proper ventilation.
are there wheels on the bottom to move it if necessary to get behind the fridge?
chips on Dec 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No as in previous answer. But, it is not particularly heavy and relatively easy to move. Once wine is stored it is heavy. Prob need to get another person to help move it or remove the wine bottles then you can move it.
Is this unit cooled by a compressor--is it quiet? Thank you.
Richard on Oct 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Richard, yes this unit is cooled via compressor. Its quite quiet, the decibel rating for this unit is less than 35 db.

For some context here are some comparisons of equivalent Decibel Ratings:

30 db - Ambient noise in a quite secluded outdoor area
40 db - Library, bird calls (44 dB); lowest limit of urban ambient sound
Is it on wheels / casters?
Rodney S on Mar 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No. It has adjustable front legs for levelling, but it is not intended to be moved once in place.

Ivan P on Jun 16, 2019

Bryan Z on Oct 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Bryan, Yes this cellar is able hold a temperature for long term wine storage.
Will this unit hold a mixture of Chardonnay, Cabernet and rose’ bottles? We purchased a 48 bottle cooler and none of our Chardonnay bottles fit. Only the small rose bottles will.
Renee B on May 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Renee. I have this unit and store a mixture of whites and reds sizes .75, 1.5 and 3.0 liter. I imagine rose bottles will work as well as long as they are not a very unique shape.
Is it insulated enough to keep in a garage in northern CA? (Weather outside is never over 85 or under 30)
Gabriel M on May 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Definitely would not keep in garage. This is a refrigerator. It can cool down from 85, but cannot heat up from 30.

Excellent Value Refrigerator
The reviews on this - as well as most other - refrigerators are largely accurate. The temperature holds quite well. Some have complained about the noise, but we find it to be impressively quiet. The "real" capacity falls far short of 80. Burgundy bottles, as noted, diminish the capacity, but so do some Bordeaux bottles. But all this was fully anticipated. The one solid drawback is the rather flimsy nature of the shelf rollers. They do not operate smoothly for some of the shelves - either pulling them out or pushing them back.

Overall, it is exactly what I expected, based on the sum of reviews, and I am quite happy with it.

Nice Wine Refrigerator
Quiet. It DOES hold 80 bottles. We have put our whites & rosés with mixed shapes in this cellar. It holds 9 bottles per shelf & there are 7 shelves. The bottles touch the edge of the cooler, but it's still easy to pull the shelves out. On the very bottom of the cellar where this is no shelf you can place 3 layers of bottles flat - a row of 6, a row of 5, another row of 6. That is a little inconvenient, because you have to move everything to remove a bottle from the bottom row. You can't see the temperature of the cooler unless you bend down. It would have deserved another star if it had been about an inch wider and an inch taller.

So far so great!
The cellar arrived in pristine condition; delivery team was great and set it all up for me no problem. Runs nice and quiet and cool. Very happy so far. Thank you.

Quiet, Capacity Overstated
I bought this cooler because my 48 bottle capacity cooler was too small. This wine cooler is very quiet, well made, keeps wine at desired temperature and seems energy efficient. The only drawback is that it is NOT any 80 bottle cooler. I struggled to get 72 bottles in it. Larger diameter bottles such as St Francis Cabernet can interfere when opening racks above it. Shelves slide easily and are strong. I would give this a 5 star rating if it really held 80 bottles.

Doesn’t hold 80 bottles of my wine but this was disclosed in the description so not disappointed at all. Beautiful cooler, runs quiet, shelves slide in and out with ease.

80 bottle cooler
A Perfect size starter cooler for me.Runs quite have it set at a steady 56 degrees. I might be able to get 48-60 bottles max in it.

Great value
Nice wine cooler. We love the capacity for a smallish unit and the LED lights look really good at night. The only issue is the shelves are flimsy and, if you are not careful, can come insecure and tip / fall from the unit which almost happened to my wife.

Beautiful, functional, elegant, but with one suggestion for improvement
I called Wine Enthusiast for help choosing a wine refrigerator and my rep was great. I told him my desires (tinted glass, UV rated, wood-front shelves, and not "industrial" looking) and he honed in on this one. Although it was more than I wanted to spend, I realized that what I wanted wasn't available in smaller models so I bit the bullet, and I have no regrets.

The delivery was seamless and I let it sit for 24 hours before plugging it in (as was advised). It dropped to my desired 58º soon afterwards and has maintained it consistently since then. The blue light is a beautiful shade and adds to its elegant appeal.

The one suggestion I have is fix the shelves. Their design is a bit wonky. They can lift off of the front pegs and pull out quite far, which is handy for filling the shelf but unstable as they can then tip off of the rail and everything would fall to the floor. SO, be aware as you're filling/accessing your wines.

Lastly, the capacity IS overstated, but WineEnthusiast was very up front about it when I spoke with them prior to ordering. I've always seen that a rule of thumb is to expect 25% less capacity that what's stated (due to differences in bottle sizes) and I'd say that's true for this unit. I currently have a spacious 40 bottles in my fridge and could get another 20 without excessive crowding.

it is what it is
The unit is what was billed. an acceptable adequate unit. The temp is accurate and the look is nice. The functionality of the unit is lacking. No way you can get 80 bottles in this unit. The shelves are flimsy and not apart enough so difficult to story much on each shelf. So if want an expensive unit with about 60 bottles storage this is your product. Unfortunately no other product is any better that I have found.
