    Small Capacity Wine Fridges - Details

    Small-capacity wine coolers are the perfect storage solution for those with a smaller wine collection, limited space, or those who want to keep a few bottles ready to serve. Vinotemp offers a wide range of wine coolers with different features and finishes that complement any home. Below we explore small-capacity wine fridges and their benefits.

    What is a Small Capacity Wine Cooler?

    Small-capacity wine coolers hold between 1 to 25 bottles of wine. Vinotemp offers compact wine refrigerators in 1-bottle, 2-bottle, 4-bottle, 6-bottle, 8-bottle, 12 bottles and more. Space-saving wine coolers allow you to place a wine refrigerator in any room of your home, so you can have wine wherever you need it. Small-capacity wine fridges can also bring a few bottles of wine to serving temperature, perfect for those who love entertaining.

    Should I Buy a Small Wine Cooler?

    There are many benefits to owning a small wine cooler. Mini wine fridges are great for small space dwellers and make a smart addition to man-caves, entertainment rooms, home bars, guest houses, and more. Since they are compact in size, they are easy to move as needed. A small wine fridge may house a few favorite bottles at the perfect serving temperature for those with a big collection.

    Many of Vinotemp’s most popular wine coolers are small. For example, the 7-Bottle Wine Cooler is a favorite for tiny house and RV dwellers as it is less than 6 inches wide. The 2-Bottle Open Wine Cooler is approximately 10 inches deep by 10 inches wide; its shallow design allows it to fit on any countertop. The 24-Inch Outdoor Dual-Zone Wine & Beverage Cooler can house 44 12 oz cans and 22 standard wine bottles. There are many small-capacity wine fridges to choose from, so you will surely find one that works for your collection.

    How to Maximize Storage Space with a Small Wine Fridge

    Adding a small wine cooler to your home is a great way to add value. If you have a space once occupied by a trash compactor, Vinotemp sells wine coolers that can fit in that unused space. In addition, many small wine coolers feature front exhaust so they can be recessed into existing cabinetry for a seamless look. Freestanding units are available when it is impossible to install a wine cooler under the counter. Many are small enough to sit comfortably on a table or countertop.  While small, Vinotemp’s small-capacity wine refrigerators have the same features as their larger counterparts. Select wine fridges have two independent temperature zones, so you can store different varietals simultaneously or use one zone for serving temperature and one for storage temperature. Additional features include digital temperature control, interior lighting, stainless steel finishes, sturdy wire racking, insulation, modern pole handles, and even door locks. Those made with thermoelectric technology have fewer moving parts and make less noise when operating. Wine coolers made with compressor systems are more powerful and can reach cooler temperatures than thermoelectric units. 

    Can a Wine Cooler be Used as a Mini Fridge?

    Generally, food should not be kept inside a wine cooler. Food normally stored inside a kitchen refrigerator should be stored at 40 degrees Fahrenheit or below. Wine’s ideal storage temperature is 55 degrees Fahrenheit, which is too warm for eggs, produce, dairy and other items. Storing food inside a warm environment can lead to the growth of harmful bacteria. Additionally, storing wine and food together is not a good idea, as the odors from the food can permeate the wine bottle's cork and affect the wine's taste.

    What is the Difference Between a Wine Fridge and Beverage Cooler?

    People often need clarification about the difference between wine and beverage coolers. Wine refrigerators are designed specifically for wine storage with specially made racks that secure wine bottles in place and a cooling system that will keep wine at around 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Beverage coolers can be used with a diverse selection of drinks, including beer, water, juice and more. Beverage fridges feature flat shelves that can house a variety of shapes, from cans to bottles. Beverage coolers generally cool to a lower temperature, perfect for water or soda but too cold for wine.

    How to Find the Best Compact Wine Cooler

    With a diverse selection of wine refrigerators, you will surely find the one that works best with your style. Available in black, smoked stainless steel, mirrored, panel ready and more, Vinotemp’s wine coolers will blend seamlessly with your design style.
