Wine Refrigerator Dimensions: Choosing the Best Size For Your Wine Collection

Jul 20, 2023

The best size of a wine refrigerator can depend on your specific needs and preferences. Wine refrigerators come in a wide variety of sizes, from small countertop models to large built-in units. The dimensions of a wine refrigerator will vary depending on the capacity, type or brand, so it's important to consider a few factors before making a decision

Collection Size

Determine the number of wine bottles you currently have or plan to store in the near future. How much has your wine collection grown over the past year? How many more bottles do you plan to collect next year? If you only have a few bottles, a small undercounter unit would be a good option. But if you have a rapidly growing collection, consider investing in a much larger unit.

Available Space

It's important to measure the area where you intend to place the wine refrigerator to ensure it fits comfortably before purchasing your unit. Are you building in the wine refrigerator? Is it an undercounter unit? Will it be freestanding? Will it be outdoor? Depending on your decision, you might want to take into consideration having a front-venting unit.


Types of Wine

Depending on the kind of wines you collect, you may want to consider looking into purchasing a dual zone wine cooler. These models can store red or white wine bottles at different temperature ranges suitable for your wines within the same unit. Allavino offers wine units with FlexCount technology shelves which can also accommodate larger bottle sizes like piños, champagne or magnums.


Anticipated growth in your wine collection

Future Growth

If you anticipate your wine collection expanding over time, it might be wise to choose a wine refrigerator with a slightly larger capacity than you current needs. Allavino offers a selection of side-by-side wine cellars allowing you to double your overall bottle count and increase the number of temperature zones which store your wine by having two identical side by side units with opposite hinged doors. These can ensure you always have what you need to keep those wines at optimal temperatures and ready for keeping or serving.
