Wine Cabinets UK

    Wine cabinets are the perfect solution for any wine collector looking to store their wines in optimal conditions for the long term. All of our wine cabinets are designed to be used as a freestanding unit rather than built in wine coolers as they require adequate ventilation around the back, sides and rear. 

    Our wine cabinets offer the ideal long term storage environment and have bottle capacities ranging from 60 bottles through to 300+ bottles. We stock a wide range of brands including Swisscave, Dunavox, DometicClimadiff, Avintage, Liebherr and La Sommeliere.

    Wine Cabinet Fridges & Storage

    What is a Wine Storage Cabinet?

    Wine cabinets are large refrigerated appliances specifically for the storage of wines for a period of 1 to 20 years unlike wine fridges which are perfectly suited to keeping wines at serving temperature.

    A wine cabinet will keep your wine bottles in stable and reliable conditions over many years, imitating the real world conditions of a wine cellar. Most units are installed with solid doors or UV protected glass doors, vibration-free compressors, and charcoal filters.

    In addition, a number of models we offer allow for the accurate control of humidity levels, although wine cabinets do automatically control the humidity across a range of approximately 55-85% to protect corks from drying out.

    Because you can purchase cabinets with multiple temperature zones, they can be used to store red wine, white wine, rose wine, and sparkling wine.

    Wine storage fridges can be located in the dining room, kitchen, basement, garage, hallway, or even under the stairs.

    They are excellent wine storage solutions for wine lovers investing in a wine collection, as they control environmental factors, to ensure your wine ages at just the right speed to keep it valuable and tasting great.

    They can even be used as wine display shelves, depending on the style of the cabinet.

    Wine Cabinet Bottle Capacity 

    Our wine cabinets are available in a selection of sizes which are designed to optimise the capacity available. A freestanding wine cooler can store anywhere from 45 up to 300+ Bordeaux bottles of wine, so there an ample range of sizes to choose from depending on your wine collection size and type. 

    Wine Cabinet Temperature Zones

    We have wine cabinets which are designed with 1, 2 or 3 zones. If you plan to age wine and serve in the same wine cabinet then you will likely benefit from a dual temperature zone wine cabinet as you can set each zone at a different temperature.

    Equally if you are looking to store only reds or whites then a single zone wine cabinet  maybe better suited to your requirements.

    We have UK stock available for fast, free 2 person delivery from major wine cabinet producers such as French manufacturers like Avintage, Climadiff and La Sommeliere and other luxury brands such as Swisscave and Liebherr.

    Wine Cabinet FAQs

    How Long Do Wine Cabinets Last?

    This very much depends on how much the wine cabinet is used, the environment the cabinet is situated in and how well cared for the appliance is. We would hope that a unit would last for 10-15 years but we can't offer any guarantees on this!

    Do I have to stack my bottles on top of each other?

    Not always, no. A number of our wine cabinets like the Swisscave and Dunavox models offer full sliding shelving which allows you to store your wines without stacking them. So you can easily access your wines without having the search through a stack of bottles! 

    What Wine Bottle Capacity is a Typical Wine Cabinet?

    All of our wine cabinet capacities are stated in Bordeaux bottle size. If you have many different shaped bottles this will impact and likely reduce the capacity to by around a 25-30% of the stated capacity number.

    In the event all of your bottles are Bordeaux size (which they probably aren't) you'll be able to store the same quantity of bottles shown in the product specification. We also have access to bottle diagrams for each wine cabinet - just let us know if you need one!

    Can a Wine Cabinet Be Used in a Garage or Cold Room?

    A winter system is effectively an internal heating element which introduces warm air when the ambient temperature drops to below a set temperature. This is so the set temperature can be maintained at lower ambient temperatures.

    Features of a Wine Cabinets

    Some wine cabinets have LED lights which creates an eye-catching display of your wine collection as it allows you to showcase certain bottles.

    Some units come fitted with beech wooden shelves which allow you to position some bottles vertically which can showcase certain bottles. Most models are also available as with a black wine cabinets or stainless steel wine cabinets withs exteriors which makes the wine cabinet look more modern.

    Wine Cabinets Expert Wine Storage Recommends

    We recommend Liebherr, Avintage as the highest quality manufacturers for our wine cabinets as these brands are renowned for designing and producing very robust units. This is particularly true for the Avintage models which offer all sorts of clever  environmental controls.
