The La Sommeliere Tradition wine coolers are designed to closely mimic the idyllic conditions of a classic wine cellar. This range is perfect for anyone who is looking for a traditional and simple solution to storing their wine collection. The coolers offer a wide variety of essential technological features such as an electronic thermostat, humidity controls, UV light protection and an anti-vibration system.

Where can I install my La Sommeliere wine cooler?
Whilst looking for a La Sommeliere wine cooler, you will notice that their units will be categorized as either ‘built-in’ or ‘freestanding’. This simply refers to the way in which they can be installed. The type of installation you choose should depend primarily on the amount of space you have in your home and the size of your wine collection. Let’s take a look at the differences between the two options:
Built-in La Sommeliere wine coolers are designed to be integrated into cabinets and under countertops. As their front-facing ventilation systems mean that they can be placed in closed proximity to other surfaces and appliances, these units are perfect for anyone who is planning to or is in the process of building a new kitchen. Built-in units can also actually be installed as freestanding units depending on your personal preference.
Freestanding La Sommeliere wine coolers are designed to be installed as stand-alone units, meaning they cannot be positioned in close proximity to other surfaces and appliances. This is because freestanding units are equipped with rear ventilation systems that require sufficient space to function properly. Freestanding units typically have much larger storage capacities than built-in units and are therefore better for anyone with a particularly extensive wine collection.
Which La Sommeliere wine cooler is right for me?
La Sommeliere offers an impressive range of elegant wine coolers that are designed to cater to every kind of wine enthusiast out there. Whether you’re looking for a single-zone cooling unit that stores 10 bottles of wine, or a multi-zone cooling unit that stores 200 bottles of wine, La Sommeliere will be able to provide you with plenty of suitable options to choose from.
