A large capacity wine fridge is a necessity for any serious wine collector, frequent entertainer, or anybody who wants to ensure that their wine is always at perfect serving temperature.
Wine fridges and coolers are ideal for long term wine storage, as they help ensure proper conditions (such as temperature and humidity) for wine to age in bottle. Furthermore, if you have a large or valuable collection, a temperature controlled storage solution is certainly a worthwhile investment.
Our Selections: Top Large Capacity Wine Fridges
The definition of ‘large capacity’ may vary from person to person, but for our purposes, we’re looking at fridges that hold at least 125 bottles.
Along with bottle capacity, there are a variety of other factors to consider when choosing a wine fridge. These include size and the space you have available, added features, and of course, budget. With these factors in mind, I have selected fridges in the following categories: best overall, top budget-friendly pick, large bottle holding capacity, most stylish, and best features.
