Countertop Wine Fridges & Coolers UK

    Countertop wine coolers or fridges are a popular due to their compact size and the fact they can be conveniently located on top of countertops and worktops

    These wine fridges are usually around 300-400mm wide, which allows them to be positioned in a freestanding position on a kitchen counter.

    Countertop & Table Top Wine Fridges

    A countertop freestanding wine cooler could be ideal for you. By selecting a unit of this size, you will be able to provide your collection with an ideal storage environment without completely changing the appearance of your kitchen or living space.

    The Dunavox DXFH-20.62 - Single Zone - 20 Bottles - Freestanding is the best option we have for worktop use.

    Worktop Wine Fridge Temperature Zones

    Whilst wine coolers suitable for counter top use are renowned for their slimline appearance; they are actually available as both single zone and dual zone units, offering you the same temperature control as a larger unit.

    Single zone wine units ensure that every single bottle is kept at the same temperature, whilst dual zone units allow you to store various types of wines at their optimal temperatures.

    The unit type you choose should depend entirely on the kind of wine you are going to be storing. For example, if you are someone whose collection solely consists of white wine, a single zone cooler may be the better choice for you. 

    On the other hand, if you are someone whose collection consists of a range of reds and whites, you will need to consider purchasing a dual zone unit to store wine properly.

    How Do I Install My Table Top Wine Cooler?

    Countertop wine coolers are typically designed to be freestanding, but some can be built in to kitchen cabinets or integrated under counter tops, like models of 400mm, 500mm, and 600mm width coolers. 

    When it comes to installing your counter top wine cooler, it is imperative that there is at least 5-10cm of space around the sides and back of the unit to allow for adequate ventilation. 

    Countertop freestanding models should not be covered overhead unless the product page says they can be used as a "built in" unit.

    Once installed, you should minimise vibration near the fridge, as this can harm the wine.

    Countertop Wine Cooler Features

    Despite their small appearance, table top wine coolers are available with various innovative features. 

    These features not only work to make your life easier, but they also help to ensure your wine is constantly protected from the sorts of environmental threats that are known to cause oxidization and flavour degradation.

    These features include: anti-UV treated glass door (to protect your wine against sunlight overexposure), LED lighting (to elegantly illuminate your wine collection), and door alarms (to alert you of any fluctuations in humidity or temperature).

    If you're concerned with energy efficiency, then we have the energy rating listed on the product page of all our fridges.

    These offer the perfect wine storage conditions, to recreate a traditional wine cellar, and keep your wine collection in perfect order.

    These work top wine chillers can be used for red wine, white wine, sparkling wine, Champagne, and rose wine.

    Expert Wine Storage stocks both thermoelectric and compressor style wine fridges.

    Is a Countertop Wine Fridge Right For Me?

    To understand if a countertop wine cooler is right for you, there are several factors you will need to consider. You will need to think about the size of your wine collection, what kinds of features you require and how much disposable space you have to work with. We offer small wine coolers by brands such as Dunavox, while most models are available in black and stainless steel.

    If you are someone who simply likes to keep 10-20 of your favourite bottles to hand or you are just starting out in the world of wine collecting, a countertop wine cooler may be a great choice for you. 

    If you are looking for a wine cooler with an anti-UV treated glass door, and a single or dual zone temperature capability, a countertio wine cooler should be able to meet your requirements. 

    On the other hand, if you are looking for a wine cooler with multiple cooling zones (more than 2) and precise humidity controls, you may need to consider choosing a larger, more advanced model.

    In terms of space, you will need to ensure you have enough disposable room in your home for the counter top wine cooler to be positioned. Luckily, these units are extremely narrow, have a shallow depth, and are small in comparison to other wine coolers, which makes them an ideal choice for most.

    They can be used in both a residential and commercial setting, providing a fridge for offering guests drinks while entertaining, whether you're the host of a party or running a bar.

    A good alternative would be to choose a wine cabinet.

    If you need a larger sized fridge with a big bottle capacity, then you'll be best choosing from either our large fridges or tall fridges.
