Top Rated Wine Refrigerators

Sub-Zero IW-30R

One of the greatest things about this model is that the front panel and hardware that accompanies it are customizable, so you have plenty of design options to choose from.

The refrigerator features two separate temperature zones allowing you to properly store reds and whites and the dual evaporators provide the needed humidity to prevent corks from drying out. As if this wasn’t enough the IW-30R also has two refrigerator drawers located below the wine storage racks.

The drawers offer 4.0 cu feet that can be used to store cheese, mineral water, limes, or even beer.

1215WC 15” Wine Captain Model

This refrigerator belongs to the U-line 1000 series. One of the nice things about this model is that it comes with a field reversible door, so you can switch the way the door opens based on where you decide to locate the wine refrigerator.

This is one of the smaller models so it only holds up to 24 bottles of the 750 ml size, but the fourth and fifth racks inside allow for larger bottles to be stored. This refrigerator can be built in or it can be used as a freestanding appliance.

Sub-Zero 424G/S

For those who are looking for an under the counter type of wine storage, the SubZero 424G/S is an ideal choice. One of the biggest selling points of the 424G/S is it features two independent temperature controlled storage zones, which means you can store both reds and whites at their desired temperature setting.

The temperature controls are designed to hold the wines within 1 degree of the temperature you set, whether you are going for serving temperature or storage temperature.

Vibrations can ruin any bottle of wine, so the 424G/S have roller guide shelves that are designed to keep the bottles cradled and minimize vibrations as they glide in and out.

Added bonus? The refrigerator also features tinted glass on the door that is UV resistant to prevent any unpleasant odors or premature aging due to harmful UV rays.

The 3036WCWC is a 36” wine refrigerator that features double doors, the other two models in this series feature a single door. How many bottles of 750 ml bottles of wine they hold will depend on the exact model that you purchase.

As an added plus, the fourth and fifth rack in the refrigerator can hold different shape and size bottles, such as champagne. The 3000 series features three distinct modes based on the type of wine you are storing, plus it features independently controlled dual zones, which allows you to store two types of wine at the perfect temperature and humidity.

Door glass provides protection from UV light as it is an argon gas filled door with a low-E coating.
