How many boWes you have and the space a fridge commands are your first considerations: 24 or 30-bottle models can easily hide in a closet or under a counter, but home real estate is a factor when you start to inch up to 300-bottle versions.
"For the beginning collector, make sure you get a unit that holds at least 25 percent more capacity than what you currently have," says Marshall Tilden Ill, director of sales for Wine Enthusiast Cos. "Wine collections grow quickly, so while it may seem like overkill to buy a SO-bottle cellar when you only have two cases to store ... trust me, that cellar will fill up in no time."
