If you are looking for a wine cooler that has a high storage capacity with a stunning design, check out this option by Monogram. This model can hold up to 57 bottles that can be stored either horizontally or vertically.
The soft LED lighting is a change from the traditional glare of small refrigerators.

Customer reviews mention the high value for the price. The controls are easy to use and the cooler stores several bottles easily.
Consider this option by Frigidaire if you are looking for a freestanding wine cooler that can be placed anywhere in your home. You can set the temperature range from 41 to 64 degrees depending on the types of beverages you want to chill. Enjoy your wine as it was meant to be consumed – and not a degree higher or lower than the creators intended.
This Frigidaire wine cooler can hold up to 38 wine bottles at its maximum capacity. This is impressive for a refrigerator that is only 22 inches wide.

Can you place your under counter wine cooler outside?
Some wine cooler models can handle being placed outdoors; however, it depends on where it is placed and where you live. Make sure your wine cooler won’t be exposed to the sun directly or come into contact with water, snow, and ice. If you have your wine cooler on the patio, it should continue to perform. Also, check the brand to see if the model is approved for outdoor use.
Where should I place my wine cooler?
The living room is one of the most common places to store wine coolers. Homeowners can drink wine while they entertain guests or while they enjoy their favorite shows. Other popular locations include your dining area, patio, or even your pool area – as long as your wine cooler isn’t exposed to chlorine.
