Allavino AWR168-1BR - 168 Bottle Wine Refrigerator - Black Cabinet and Door Frame
The all-new Allavino AWR168-1BR 168 Bottle Wine Cellar is an ideal unit to store the collection of any wine aficionado. It's black finished cabinet and door frame offer a very modern look that will compliment any decor. The cool blue LED lighting can illuminate your collection for an attractive display or be left off for energy efficiency. Each of the 16 wood shelves glide out on ball-bearing tracks far enough to access the rear bottles, affording you easy access to your entire collection. The unit is front venting so it can be built-in with zero clearance but the finished sides also look great in a freestanding application.
The Soft Touch digital temperature display features an easy to read cool blue LED readout. The control pad is locked to prevent unwanted tampering with the controls, but can be easily unlocked by holding the up and down arrows simultaneously until you hear a beep. Temperature can be displayed in Celsius or Fahrenheit and can be set low enough for white wine or high enough for red wine.
The durably built wood shelves glide in and out smoothly and help with vibration dampening to avoid upsetting the sediment of your wine. The bottom two shelves hold 7 bottles each, while the upper 14 shelves hold 11 bottles each. This allows for a maximum capacity of 168 standard size bottles which exceeds many competitors with similar exterior dimensions.

This wine cellar has 14 shelves that can hold up to 11 bottles each and two shelves that can hold 7 bottles each for a maximum bottle capacity of 168 bottles. The maximum capacity is based on the standard Bordeaux size bottle. Your total bottle capacity may vary depending upon the size of the bottles in your collection. Refer to the information below for more specific information about how bottle sizes may affect your total bottle count.
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 are 2 3/4" at the base but have varying shoulders and overall heights.
- Bottle A is slightly taller than the average bottle at both the top and at the shoulder. This causes the top of the rear bottle on the rack to hit the shoulder of the front bottles on the rack so that the bottles do not settle into the grooves as well. We were able to remove one bottle from the back row, reducing the bottles per shelf to 10 and the overall capacity to 154, and still have the shelves operate smoothly.
- Bottle B is taller than the average bottle at both the top and the shoulder. This causes the top of the rear bottle on the rack to 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. With 8 bottles per shelf, it reduces the overall capacity to 126 bottles, if your entire collection were this size.
- Bottle C 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. This allows you to fit 11 bottles on the top 14 racks with a total capacity of 168 bottles.
- Bottle D 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 all 11 bottles on a shelf for the full 168 bottle capacity.
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.

Allavino AWR168-1BR - 168 Bottle Wine Refrigerator - Black Cabinet and Door Frame Reviews
|Average Customer Rating:|

|Fantastic and Finally!|
|Comments:||I saved for 2 years to get a wine fridge and was not disappointed! This unit is amazing. It looks good, both inside and out. My wine is perfectly chilled and holds exactly what they said if you use their size chart. My only complaint is I can't figure out how to get a drawer out. The Beverage Factory who sold this to me has fantastic customer service and I would definitely by from them again.|
|Bottom Line:||I would recommend this product.|

|Comments:||We love, love, LOVE our new wine refrigerator! It looks beautiful and fits in our kitchen perfectly. It matches all our other stainless steel appliances. I especially love how the stainless kick plate on the bottom looks just like the one on our Sub-Zero fridge. When we first unboxed it and plugged it in, I got scared as we couldn't adjust the temperature. It was our excitement that made us look past the owners manual but once we did, we realized that we needed to hold down the up and down key at the same time under the word UNLOCK as the unit locks itself if the buttons are not pressed for 12 seconds. After we figured that out, we were in heaven with our wine's new home :)|
