Vin Garde Freestanding Wine Cooler Shelves
The base of the sliding shelf is metal, upon which a highly durable moulding is fitted to keep the bottles in place. The front of the shelf is a very attractive beech wood. By using a metal base, the shelf is extremely robust yet only 1mm thick, which enables more shelves to be fitted within the wine cooler. This increases the freestanding wine cooler’s bottle capacity and allows more space on each shelf to accommodate different bottle sizes, please see the note below.
Full Shelves and Display Shelves can be fitted in the large and medium-sized models – Volnay, Pommard, Meursault and Beaune. These models are all equipped with a half shelf at the bottom, upon which 2 layers of bottles can be stored. The display shelf accommodates 14 bottles. On the rear of the shelf you place 5 bottles, then another 4 bottles on top of the 5, making 9 in total at the rear of the shelf. At the front you place 5 bottles at a display angle, so you can see the label. The angle of the bottle ensures that the cork remains covered, with the bubble being well down the shoulder of the bottle.
Volnay, Pommard, Meursault and Beaune models Full Shelf The Full Shelf has been designed to comfortably accommodate most bottle shapes. It will store 11 Bordeaux shaped bottles, 10 Burgundy bottles or 10 Champagne bottles. Please note that some Champagne marques have extremely thick bottles which will not fit on the full shelf. To accommodate such bottles you can place them at the very bottom of the wine fridge or remove one of the full shelves to create more headroom to fit the thicker bottle shape.
Volnay, Pommard, Meursault and Beaune Half Shelves
Due to the positioning of the compressor, the bottom shelf is a half shelf which holds 11 bottles (10 Burgundy or Champagne).
