Default Wine refigerator

Assuming you have the willpower to limit your cellar to 60 bottles, Costco
has been selling a stainless steel VinoTemp unit for US$398. It's a very
good value and is quite attractive in the proper surroundings. Larger units
I've seen are generally closer to US$1000.

I would agree with both the comment that a standard fridge is not the way to
go, and also that there is some kind of dynamic that can take hold which may
make the size of this unit problematic. My experience has been that
self-control (or a friend with extra capacity in his storage unit) can
become necessary.


Hi Group

Southern Calif here!

We're thinking of buy a wine refrigerator to hold about 70 bottles of wine
in our house.

We'll be using it for wine that will be drunk over the course of (say) a
year. I.e. this wine refrigerator won't be used for long term storage of
good wine, rather as a store for the everyday stuff, and a storage location
for the good stuff that comes out of long term storage climate controlled
storage.

All of the wine 'fridges that we've seen seem to be exceptionally highly
priced (understandable given the market!), and have so many whizz-bang
features that we just don't need, and so (particularly as we're not too
worried about the aesthetics of the 'fridge.) I was wondering about the
practicality of using an ordinary domestic refrigerator set on its warmest
setting.

Has anyone any experience of this / thoughts on the matter?

Are we likely to have issues with humidity?

Cheers

Den
