The Best Wine Coolers of 2019: As Selected by Wine Enthusiast’s Storage Consultants

Whether you’ve been collecting wine for the past three decades or are just getting started, there’s a wine cooler to suit your needs. We’ve gathered our favorite and most popular products from 2019 to help you find the perfect unit.

Our VP of Sales Marshall Tilden III notes that premium cellars saw a lift in 2019, where high-end EuroCaves and Vinotheque Cellars were more popular than ever. Tilden states there is a clear trend in “display over basic capacity. Customers are more prone to display their finest bottles in a cellar, particularly with our VinoView Cellars and shelves, and will give up a bit of capacity to do so.”

In the list below, we cover not only compact wine coolers, but larger storage options as well – and don’t worry, all have plenty of visual appeal!
