What are the different types of wine fridge?

Freestanding wine fridge – Traditionally, freestanding wine fridges were made to be stand-alone rather than installed into a built-in unit. They were designed with vents at the back of the fridge to draw in cool air and allow heat to dissipate. If a freestanding fridge with rear vents were installed directly against a wall it would prevent heat from escaping and lead to overheating.

Integrated wine fridge – Many integrated wine fridges are a similar design to freestanding fridges in that they have vents at the rear to allow warm air to escape and cool air is drawn in to maintain a consistent temperature required for preserving and maturing your wine collection. In order to do this the fridge needs to be installed with enough space for optimal airflow.

Best of both worlds – The Vin Garde range of wine fridges are ventilated at the front which means that they can be freestanding or integrated into a fitted kitchen. Integrating a wine fridge into your kitchen design creates an amazing streamlined look and give you the ability to store your wine collection for many years while giving your kitchen an incredibly stylish look and feel.

Built-in wine fridge – A built-in wine fridge has ventilation at the front and is typically designed to be installed as an under-counter wine fridge. If you are thinking about a kitchen redesign or have a space under your kitchen countertop, built-in wine fridges are the perfect solution. There are fans located underneath the fridge that draws in cool air, and warm air dissipates out of either side.

Single or dual temperature wine fridge?

Single temperature wine fridges have a single temperature zone while dual temperature wine fridges have two separate temperature zones. Whether you are storing wine for the long term or want the ability to store and serve wine from the same fridge, the best way is to have separate independently controlled temperature zones.
