    Small Wine Coolers

    Small wine coolers are a popular due to their compact size. They're usually around 300-400mm wide, allowing them to be positioned freestanding in relatively small spaces. By choosing a small wine fridge you will be able to provide your wine collection with an ideal storage environment without entirely altering your kitchen or living space significantly.

    About These Compact Models

    Mini wine refrigerators are typically designed to be freestanding, but some can be built in to kitchen cabinets or integrated under counter, like our 40cm wide, 50cm wide, and 60cm wide coolers. Whilst wine coolers of small sizes are renowned for their compact appearance; they are actually available as both single zone and dual zone units, offering you the same temperature control as a larger unit.

    Key Features

    Despite their small appearance, mini wine refrigerators 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. Here are some of the important features you can find within our mini and small wine fridges:

    Temperature Zones

    Single zone wine units ensure that every single bottle is kept at the same temperature, whilst dual zone wine fridges 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.

    Compact Size and Shape

    In terms of space, you will need to ensure you have enough disposable room in your home for the small wine cooler to be positioned. Luckily, these short sized height 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.

    Wine Bottle Capacity

    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 small wine chiller may be a great choice for you. 

    Other Key Features

    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).

    How Do You Install One?



    When it comes to installing your 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. Small freestanding wine fridges 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.

    How Much Electricity Does a Smaller Unit Use?



    Depending on the model of mini wine cooler, most of these small units consume between under 150 kWh per year. This is approximately 0.25 to 0.50 kWh per day.
