A wine cooler, also called a wine refrigerator, refers to a specialized type of refrigerator that stores wine bottles at a regulated temperature to ensure optimal aging and freshness. Wine coolers differ from regular refrigerators in that they include a temperature range that works specifically for wine bottles, and they also include shelves designed to store wine bottles. Many wine coolers include a display shelf that allows for stand-up storage, best for open wine bottles. This shelf also gives users the opportunity to put their wine bottles on display for their guests.
Different types of wine require different storage temperatures. A single zone unit stores either red or white wine. Dual temperature zone wine refrigerators include separate temperature zones for storing both red and white wine. Some wine coolers include dual zones for a beverage can center as well. This allows you to store a wider variety of drinks for parties or other events.
