Freestanding wine coolers are ideal for kitchens with no cupboard space and the sleek design means they will not look out of place on a tabletop, work surface or next to existing kitchen units. We have a great selection of stand-alone wine coolers which are available as single zone or dual temperature zone fridges. Elite Wine Refrigeration has the largest collection of wine refrigeration units on the market today, with units that are perfect for serving and long term ageing/preservation of wines.
Freestanding wine coolers are designed to be freestanding only and should not be used as a built in model. The compressor systems are located in the side of the wine cooler, which is why we suggest at least 3-5 inches around each side of the wine fridge to allow for adequate air circulation and they should never be enclosed from above, for example installed under a counter top. For this you will need a built in wine cooler. Our freestanding wine cooler specialists are: Dunavox, Climadiff and La Sommeliere.
We also have thermoelectric models for freestanding fridges, which uses a technology that eliminates noise and less energy. These are ideal for storing red wines but should only ever be used as a freestanding unit since they cool via electricity and rely on ambient air temperature.
These type of wine coolers tend to be shallower than built-in wine coolers as they do not have as many parts to the rear of the unit, which makes these units ideal to fit into smaller spaces.
Please also bare in mind that Kitchen / Built-in wine coolers can be used as freestanding units, the only difference being the location of the fan and compressor system. More information on built in wine fridges.
