Allavino YHWR174-1SWLN Wine Refrigerator Features

Powerful and Efficient Cooling

A state-of-the-art compressor provides powerful cooling while being efficient enough to meet the strict California Department of Energy consumption guidelines. Internal fans circulate cool air throughout the cabinet to create faster cooldown and eliminate hot spots, ensuring that each bottle in your collection is aging in the intended temperature range.

Digital Controls

The digital display and push button controls are easily accessible and intuitive. You can precisely control the interior temperature of the cabinet in one degree increments by pressing the up and down arrows. The LED display shows the set temperature during adjustments, then displays the current temperature, allowing you to monitor how the unit is performing. You can also turn the lights on and off, change the display from Fahrenheit to Celsius and turn off the power to the appliance with the push of a button.

Beautiful Styling

A finished black cabinet allows the unit to look great in freestanding applications, while the front-venting design allows you to build the appliance into cabinetry so that only the stainless steel framed glass door and toe kick are visible. The cool blue lighting and refined wooden shelves add to an aesthetic that is pleasing to the eye.

Glide-Out Wooden Shelves

15 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.

  • Up to 174 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.
  • Black Cabinet and Stainless Steel Framed Glass Door with hinge on left. Door is not field reversible.
  • Stainless Steel Curved AND Towel Bar Handles
  • LED Temperature Display
  • Push button controls
  • Can be set between 40 and 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.
  • Temperature can be displayed in Fahrenheit or Celsius
  • Fan-forced cooling for even temperature distribution
  • Cool Blue interior lighting
  • Beautiful hardwood shelves
  • Beveled shelf slats securely cradle wine bottles to reduce vibration
  • Telescoping roller glides extend shelves far enough to access rear bottles
  • Security Lock
  • Dual Paned Glass Door with UV Protection
  • Built-in or Freestanding use

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 and 11 bottles on the other 14 racks with a total capacity of 174 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 8 bottles on a 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 134 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 D is shorter and wider, and the bigger diameter will not allow you to stack bottles on the bottom shelf. This reduces the overall capacity by 5, for a maximum capacity of 169 bottles if your entire collection were this size.
  • Bottle E is even 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 117 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.

FlexCount Classic Series 174 Bottle Single Zone Wine Refrigerator - Left Hinge Reviews

Average Customer Rating:
(based on 5 reviews) 
Great wine fridge/great value
by:Chris (11-28-2017)
Comments:This is the third FlexCount Classic Series 174 that I have purchased. My cellar is full so as I expand my wine bank, I rely on this wine fridge. It looks great, holds 174 bottles and is great value. I highly recommend it.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
This wine fridge is awesome!
by:Jeff (07-16-2017)
Comments:I got this fridge last year and I wish I had gotten it sooner. The telescoping shelves are a must! It's much quieter than the other ones I have bought in the past. Fat bottles are a a little bit of a pain, but I blame the wine manufacturers for that. You can put them on the bottom and top shelves anyway.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Awesome Wine Cooler
by:Bill (04-07-2017)
Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
Comments:It was nerve-wracking researching large wine coolers because of their size, weight, and price. The Flexcount 174 is exactly what the description says it is and the reviews are fairly accurate.
The wine cooler arrived as promised and after fitting it into the space in our kitchen, we started to load the cooler with wine bottles. The shelves are huge and easily hold most sized bottles and the upper and lower racks are perfect for stacking.
The temperature does remain constant +/- 1 degree but the digital readout says it warms and cools +/- 2 degrees from the setting. Not a big deal because it doesn't affect the wine.
The blue light that illuminates the inside is nice but it's on a timer and shuts off after 1 minute. Not a big deal but it would be nice if we could keep it longer and shut it off manually.
Customer service was excellent with an issue I had with the door handle and they immediately shipped me a new handle with no questions asked.
The look is sleek and the wood shelves adds a little sophistication. I highly recommend this product and you won't be disappointed
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Staff Reply:Bill,

The Beverage Factory
Good but not great
by:Bruce (10-24-2016)
Park City, UT
Comments:I bought this based on the high quality racks that were advertised. This is indeed the case. The racking system works well for a variety of different bottle sizes. The wood trays work well and the ball bearing slides work well. Shelves are placed at several different increments, so that some larger 750mL bottles only fit in certain spots, but that is fine. 2 complaints: 1) it is noisier then I expected. It is louder then an ordinary refrigerator. 2) The temperature seems to fluctuate a bit. I set it to 60, but it often reads 58 or 59. Did not measure temp, but does not seem right.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Bought over a year ago, works great!
by:Ray (09-03-2016)
El Segundo, CA
Comments:I've been meaning to write a review for a few months now, since we're very happy with our unit.

We purchased this wine refrigerator over a year ago as a "scratch & dent" special, but found no scratches and no dents on ours so it looks great. Delivery was prompt and on-time.

The unit is attractive, well-made and maintains a constant temperature; I keep a calibrated wireless thermometer in it and the temp hasn't varied more than two degrees!

We have a variety of bottle sizes and even the larger ones fit reasonably well. Although some wide Pinot and Syrah bottles might scrape against the shelf above them a bit, face it, how often do you pull the shelves out? Not a big deal if I have to be a bit more careful with those. There is a slightly taller shelf about halfway down that you can dedicate to larger bottles, and the top and bottom shelves will hold two rows of bottles -- although the top shelf sags slightly from the weight, again it's not a major issue. By carefully arranging our various bottle sizes on the shelves we're probably close to the 174 bottle capacity.

Ours is free-standing in our dining area. It's not that much louder than our refrigerator, and since the TV or stereo is usually on when we're home we don't hear it. I did notice that our electric bill went up by about $8-$9 per month after we bought it, but it IS like having another refrigerator in our home so that's to be expected. Since it currently holds over $8,000 worth of wine, that's a small price to pay to keep our bottles in optimum conditions!

We've been very satisfied with our unit. The quality is comparable to other units that cost more, and our wine is now stored more properly than just sitting on a rack in our dining area.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
