If you're tired of trying to make enough room in your refrigerator to store all the beverages you'll need for your party, or find yourself having to sacrifice beverage variety in order to keep all of your drinks at their ideal temperatures, then Allavino's new 3Z-VSWB24-3SS FlexCount Series Side-by-Side Wine and Beverage Center is the ultimate storage solution for you! Made up of one dual zone wine refrigerator and one beverage refrigerator with opposite hinged doors, it has a large enough storage capacity to accommodate up to 56 wine bottles and 154 standard 12 oz. cans, or up to 56 wine bottles, 42 standard beer bottles, and 112 standard 12 oz. cans. The FlexCount Series stores your bottles and cans on Allavino's revolutionary new shelving, which has a thin yet durable metal construction that is specially designed to store more bottle sizes than any other wine refrigerator. Adding to it's versatility is a front-venting design and finished top and sides that allow this unit to be used built-in or freestanding, and every unit comes with both curved and towel bar handles so you can customize your new beverage center to fit in with your existing decor.
The beverage storage zone has 3 shelves that can hold up to 42 standard 12 oz. cans each and a bottom shelf that can hold up to 28 standard 12 oz. cans for a total storage capacity of 154 standard 12 oz. cans. The top shelf can also store up to 42 standard beer bottles for a total capacity of 42 standard beer bottles and 112 standard 12 oz. cans.
The wine storage zone has 5 shelves that can hold up to 9 bottles each and a bottom shelf that can hold 11 bottles for a maximum bottle capacity of 56 bottles. The maximum capacity is based on the standard Bordeaux size bottle.
This is the standard 750 mL bottle, which most wine refrigerators are configured around as it is the most popular size on the market. It measures 11-1/2" tall with a 2-15/16" diameter and the shoulder tapers up from 7-3/4" to 8-1/2". This wine refrigerator can easily store 9 of these bottles on each of the upper shelves and 11 more on the bottom shelves for a total of 112 bottles.
This bottle is taller than the standard 750 mL bottle. It measures 12-1/16" tall with a 2-15/16" diameter and the shoulder tapers up from 8" to 9". The taller shoulder and top would normally wreak havoc on your wine storage because the necks would touch, making the overall length of the bottles too tall for most shelves or pushing the outside bottles out, causing them to hit the sides of the wine refrigerator. Generally, you would have to remove a shelf to accommodate these bottles, but with the extra space available on these shelves, they fit just fine and do not affect the overall capacity.
This bottle has the same diameter at the base, but the shoulder is wider, which would generally push it out of the grooves and make it rub on the shelf above. It measures 11-7/8" tall with a 2-15/16" diameter at the base and the shoulder tapers up from 7-1/2" to 8-1/4" with a 3-1/16" diameter. Due to the smart spacing on these shelves, these bottles fit with room to spare, preventing rubbing and allowing the maximum bottle capacity to stay the same.
This bottle is wider and shorter than the standard 750 mL bottle. It measures 10-5/8" tall with a 3-1/4" diameter and the shoulder tapers up from 5-1/2" to 8". Bottles this wide don't usually fit in wine refrigerators and if they do, they have issues with rubbing on the shelf above and scuffing your labels. This wine refrigerator has no issues with this type of bottle so once again, your maximum capacity will not be affected if you have them in your collection.
Until now, you wouldn't dream of fitting a Pinot bottle in an undercounter built-in wine refrigerator without drastically reducing the overall capacity. It measures 11-5/8" tall with a whopping 3-1/2" diameter and the shoulder tapers up from 5-1/2" to 8-1/4". On this model, only the bottom shelf is slightly affected. You can fit 6 bottles comfortably in the grooves by alternating the necks. So even if your ENTIRE COLLECTION was made up of Pinot bottles, your total capacity would only be reduced to 102 bottles!
Champagne bottles are too big to fit on the upper shelves, but you can still store up to 6 on the bottom shelves. They measures 12-1/4" tall with a 3-3/4" diameter and the shoulder tapers up from 5-1/2" to 7-3/4". Most wine refrigerators this size would not be able to store any Champagne bottles without removing a shelf.
Perhaps there are people out there that only drink one type of wine, all the time. Most wine connoisseurs with a diverse palate are going to have varying bottle sizes in their collection, so having the ability to store all those varying bottle sizes without having to reconfigure and reduce your storage makes this the wine refrigerator of choice.

|Happy with our wine & beverage center|
Blue Bell, PA
|Comments:||First: Beverage Factory was great, very easy to work with. Quick delivery. Shipping company that they contracted to do white glove service wasn't awesome (scratched our hardwood floors). We were missing a handle and beverage factory took care of this immediately. But after dealing w/ another company Beverage Factory was awesome. |
We looked for several months at the combo beer and wine frig. Even ended up canceling a prior order due to poor reviews and bad customer service. Finally ended up with the allavino set. Very happy with our frigs. They look beautiful.
Both running are not loud at all. This was our major concern and when on, they do not bother us. A low hum. Beer frig stays very cold at 38-40 degrees. Dual wine frig is a little tougher, but we were expecting that as we have learned through research that regulating a dual zone is tough. Usually around 48-50 for whites and 58-62 for red. We aren't serious wine enthusiasts with expensive wine to store, so the temp range stills works well for us. Also, wine range works better with a more full frig than empty.
The beer frig shelves are the only issue. We tend to drink bottle beer or tall cans of craft beer so we removed a shelf to make room. The shelves do sag a little in the middle if you were to fill completely with glass bottles. So for both shelves that have the glass bottles, we only fill to the middle of the shelve. That's still about a 24-28 bottles per shelf, so a lot of beer.
All in all, very happy with our purchase. For a bar, they work perfect. Not loud. Look beautiful. Keep our beer and wine cold.
|Bottom Line:||I would recommend this product.|
