Whether you’re just starting your wine collection or looking for extra wine storage, you should ask yourself these questions before you purchase a new wine fridge.

  1. Where will you put this new wine fridge?
  2. Do you prefer reds, whites, or both?
  3. Who else might be using this fridge?

If you answered the kitchen, then you might want to consider buying panel ready or built-in wine fridges that’ll work seamlessly with your kitchen design.
For any other rooms in your home, free-standing wine fridges can offer flexibility in where you place it because of its finished sides.

Looking to renovate in the near future but want a wine fridge now? You can consider a free-standing and built-in compatible model. Marvel’s wine fridges are all free-standing models, but because they are all built with front ventilation, they can also fit under the counter for a built-in look.

Nowadays, wine fridges offer one or multiple temperature zones.

Single temperature wine fridges are a good option if you prefer whites or reds over the other, allowing you to collect and consume more of the one you like!
However, if you have a diverse palate, a dual-zone wine fridge may be more suited for your lifestyle and tastebuds.

Marvel’s 24″ Dual Zone Wine Refrigerator has two independently-controlled temperature compartments. The top chamber holds its temperature between 55° F- 62°F and is perfect for storing reds. The bottom zone provides a colder temperature range between 45°F – 55°F, and is ideal for whites. You can also use your bottom compartment as a long-term storage unit and adjust the top compartment’s temperature for serving.

If you have other purposes for additional cold storage space, then a wine and beverage centre may be the best solution for your home. A dual-zone beverage centre can house your white and red wine plus non-alcoholic beverages for parties.

Marvel’s dual zone wine and beverage centre combines the best of both worlds. The top zone has all the benefits of their professional wine storage units like vibration control, glide-out shelving, and a temperature range that’s great for storing both whites and reds. The bottom compartment has flexible shelving where you can store anything from small cans to 2L bottles.
