Wine Frig Rec?

#1 Post by dteng » September 27th, 2019, 2:12 pm

Asking for a friend, relative newbie to collecting.

Any good 50-100 bottle wine frigs available, under $1000 that you’d recommend?

I hadn’t looked in a while because mine are fine but dang have prices gone way up!!

I have the 166 bottle version of this fridge: https://www.costco.com/Wine-Enthusiast- ... 31853.html


This is the 166 bottle. It used to be $999 and was the best bottle/$ fridge out there. Might still be. I’ve had 2 for years and no issues.

Ooo that might be the way to go.
Yours looks like $1149 now but the 92 bottle unit for $799 may be the way to go.

Is yours noisy?

It is in the unfinished part of my basement so noise isn’t something I pay much attention to but I have never noticed any noise.

Bought this Frigidaire 52-bottle cooler at Abt and have been very pleased. Runs quiet, holds temp.
