The Allavino FlexCount Classic Series YHWR172-2SWRN Dual Zone Wine Refrigerator is perfect for any wine collector that enjoys both red and white wine equally. A temperature divider in the cabinet and directional fans that channel cool air where it's needed most create two cooling environments in one wine cooler. This wine refrigerator is loaded with features like digital temperature display, push-button controls, wood wine racks on full-extension rollers, UV protected dual pane glass, cool blue display lighting and a security lock to keep your collection secure. The finished black cabinet and brushed stainless steel door frame provides a timeless look that will add a touch of class to any environment.

Two Temperature Zones

Because red and white wine age differently, it is necessary to store them at different temperatures. Internal fans direct cool air where you need it, allowing you to set the lower zone between 54-65° F for red wines and set the upper zone between 40-56° F for white wines. A state-of-the-art compressor provides powerful cooling while being efficient enough to meet the strict California Department of Energy consumption guidelines.

Wooden Shelves Extend on Rollers

14 sturdy wooden shelves gently cradle your bottles and reduce harmful vibration that could upset the sediment of your wine during long term storage. Telescoping roller assemblies extend all but the bottom shelf so that you can easily view and access the rear bottles, so you don't have to remove the front bottles to determine what is behind them.

Digital Controls

Control each zone easily and intuitively with the digital temperature display and push button controls. The digital thermostat provides precise control by allowing you to adjust the temperature in one degree increments. Once the desired temperature is set, the display will show the present temperature in the cabinet, allowing you to keep track of the unit's performance. You can also control the lights, toggle between Celsius and Fahrenheit, or turn the unit off with the push of a button.

Attractive Design

The classic design elements incorporated into this stunning wine cellar will be sure to impress your friends in any environment. It's sides and top have a sleek black finish so it can be used freestanding in the dining room but it's front venting construction allow it to be built into cabinetry for a seamless look in the kitchen. Cool blue display lighting, elegant wood wine racks and a brushed stainless steel door frame complete the wine cooler's appealing look.

  • Up to 172 bottle capacity*
    This bottle count is an estimate based on 3" diameter standard wine bottle. If you have larger bottle diameters, you may hold less bottles per rack or you can remove racks to accommodate the larger bottle sizes.

  • Stainless Steel Curved AND Towel Bar Handle
  • Two temperature zones allow you to store red and white wine simultaneously*
    • Upper Zone can be set between 40-56 degrees Fahrenheit
    • Lower Zone can be set between 54-65 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Maximum Ambient Temperature: 90 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Minimum Ambient Temperature: The lowest temperature you want to store your wine at. The unit does not have a heater, so if the ambient temperature is lower than the set temperature, the internal temperature will match the external temperature.

Wine Bottle Dimensions

We realize that there is no "standard" bottle size anymore. Here is a small sample of bottle size variations and how they can affect your overall bottle capacity. Each of these bottles have varying widths and heights.

  • Bottle A is the ideal bottle size. The bottles are just short enough that the neck of the back bottles fit between the shoulders of the front bottles without touching and the 2-15/16" diameter allows plenty of room between bottles. This allows you to fit 20 bottles on the top rack in each zone and 11 bottles on the other 12 racks with a total capacity of 172 bottles.
  • Bottle B is taller than the average bottle at both the top and the shoulder. If only using this size bottle, the top of the rear bottles on the rack would hit the shoulder of the front bottles on the rack and push them too far to either side to have bottles all the way across the front of the rack. We were able to fit 11 bottles on the top shelf in each zone and the very bottom shelf by putting 6 bottles across in the grooves with 5 bottles stacked on top of them. On each of the remaining 11 shelves, we were able to get 8 bottles per shelf with one bottle in front and another bottle in the back, then skipping a groove before adding another bottle in the front. That would reduce the overall capacity to 121 bottles, if your entire collection were this size but you can have bottle B in the back with bottle A in the front of each rack and still achieve the maximum capacity of 174 bottles.
  • Bottle C also works well. It is 2-3/4" wide at the base, but 3 1/4" wide at the shoulder. The grooves are spaced enough that the shoulder will touch the bottle next to it, but the height still allows you to fit the normal amount of bottles on a shelf for the full 174 bottle capacity.
  • Bottle E is wider, with a diameter of 3-1/2". They still fit on most of the shelves without having to remove a rack, but they require that a groove be skipped between the bottles which reduced the bottles per shelf to 8 on the upper shelves and 5 on the bottom shelf. That would reduce the overall capacity to 109 bottles if your entire collection were this size.

We understand that every collection is different, and we hope that providing this information will help you determine how your collection will work with this product.

Comments:This is an update to the review I posted on 20 Aug 2016. At that time, I had just received, installed, and repaired my FlexCount 172. After the repair (documented in previous review), it worked well.....UNTIL about a week before the one-year warranty expired.
It suddenly became incapable of holding any temperature other than 63/61. I checked to verify that the circulator fans were operating (they were), then removed the back cover to see if the condenser fans had quit working or if the condenser was covered in dust (always hopeful for easy answers). Nope.
I discovered that the refrigerant system had sprung a leak and let most of the charge leak out. The compressor was still running---all the time--- trying its best to cool, but without enough freon in the system---futile.
Anyhow, I called Beverage Factory customer service, and (long story shorter) they sent me a replacement unit and took the broken one back.
The new one seems to have a huge improvement in the cooling system---it it MUCH quieter and cools noticeably faster, so kudos to the manufacturer---and to Beverage Factory for their quick and helpful warranty service.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Sleek, Quiet and Reliable
by:Rocky II (12-08-2016)

Comments:I've had the unit for about 1 year now. It is sleek and quiet. I really like the quality of the racks and with rare exception, the shelves are sufficiently far apart where the tops of bottles (pinot noir primarily) don't rub when you slide the shelves in and out. Also with rare exception, you can fit two layers (intercrossed like a zipper) of bottles in each row and so the rate bottle capacity is pretty close to what you really get. My only complaint is that the two zones don't appear to allow less than a 9 degree temperature difference between the two levels, so if you set the bottom for 55, the top can be no warmer than 46. Since I now find that I keep a lot more reds than whites, this doesn't allow the option of setting both zones to accommodate reds. Overall, a great chiller. If half ratings were permitted, I'd give it a 4.5 star rating.

Helpful note: Until you start to fill the unit with wine it is much harder to maintain a consistent temperature. The greater the volume of wine being stored the more stable the temperature setting becomes. Water bottles help to stabilize the temperature until you have sufficient wine bottles in place.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
FlexCount Classic Series 172 Bottle Dual
by:William (10-11-2016)
Concord, California
Comments:I have a lot of wine that was stored under beds and in closets and in bedside cabinets. The FlexCount is nice for keeping all my wine organized and accessible. The left hinge door is perfect for accessing from a right approach. most of the Burgundy-type bottles fit without touching the shelve above. Some Italian-style bottles (V. Sattui) will touch the shelf above, but with careful guidance, the shelf drawer will close. the shelves will hold 11 Bordeaux-type bottles in perfect position (wish it held a whole case).

The operation is quiet. For the first day it ran for almost 20 hours before cycling off. It can tend to run too cold if the upper zone is set to below 60 degrees.

The "white glove service" is neither. The truck driver showed up without a helper, and said there was an extra charge for the packing removal. His invoice had indicated 2 men to place in the house. to get it into my house is only 2 steps up. Once it was in the house, I helped the driver get it into my house. The driver removed the packaging and I helped place it in the position that I wanted. I got the song and dance about keeping the cardboard and styrofoam in case there was any issue with the unit. If it had to be shipped back it would need the original packaging. So I got stuck with the Behemoth packaging that will take several weeks to dispose through my regular garbage service.
If you pay for the "White Glove Service" be sure that you get an e-mail confirmation that all the packing material will be removed at the time of delivery. Also get a copy op the freight bill to ensure that the package removal is written on the bill.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
