The FlexCount Series 3Z-VSWR5656-SST Multi-Zone Wine Cellar Refrigerator from Allavino combines style and versatility with cutting edge features for a refrigerator that's as unique as your wine collection. Made up of one single zone 56 bottle unit and one dual zone 56 bottle unit with opposite hinged doors, it can store up to 112 bottle on intelligently designed durable metal shelves that are strong enough to provide stability and prevent sagging over time yet thin enough to allow more space between shelves than you will find in similarly sized wine refrigerators, making it possible to store larger bottles without sacrificing bottle capacity. These shelves feature wood slats that effectively cradle your bottles to help minimize harmful vibration, as well as stylish stainless steel fronts that match the glass door frames. Each of the 3Z-VSWR5656-SST's three zones can be individually monitored and adjusted using two digital displays with push button controls, and "red", "white", and "sparkling" indicator lights make it easy to ensure that your collection is being stored at it's ideal temperatures. Thanks to it's front-venting design and finished top and sides, this refrigerator can be used as a built-in or freestanding unit.
This features 5 shelves on each side that can fit 9 bottles each, as well as a bottom shelf that can fit 11 bottles, for a maximum storage capacity of 56 bottles. The maximum capacity can be reached with many different bottle sizes and is only affected when adding in larger Pinot or Champagne bottles.Store both red and white wines with this dual zone unit, which features "Red", "White", and "Sparkling" indicator lights to ensure that your wines are kept at their optimum temperatures.
Each zone has it's own digital display with easy to use push button controls so setting and reading the display is a snap! Cool blue LED lighting beautifully elegantly illuminates your bottles while remaining cooler than standard bulbs, and can be turned on or off with the push of a button.
Allavino is at the leading edge of shelf design, incorporating revolutionary metal shelves that are strong enough to hold bottles without sagging, yet thin enough to maximize the available space in the cabinet for wine storage. Wood slats refine each shelf and gently cradle each bottle to prevent harmful vibration from affecting your wine. Each shelf is finished with a stylish stainless steel front to match the door frame. Each of the shelves glide out smoothly on ball bearing tracks, so every bottle is easily accessible.
The intelligent design of the shelves creates more space between each shelf, allowing you to store bottles with varying diameters without having to remove racks which would reduce your overall capacity.

This wine cellar has 10 shelves that can hold up to 9 bottles each and two bottom shelves that can hold 11 bottles each for a maximum bottle capacity of 112 bottles. The maximum capacity can be reached with many different bottle sizes and is only affected when adding in larger Pinot or Champagne bottles, making this the ideal unit for diverse wine collections.
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 each of 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 shelves are slightly affected. You can fit 9 bottles on each of the bottom shelves without them being properly cradled in the grooves or fit 6 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 at the lowest!
Champagne bottles are too big to fit on the upper shelves, but you can still store up to 6 on each of 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.

|Comments:||It does what it’s supposed to. Units appear well built and are easy to use. Couple things to note. This is 2 separate units, so there is a seam along the top when you push them together. Doesn’t look bad, but not exactly the credenza I was replacing. Also, the units run a bit on the loud side. You can hear them from across the room. |
Given the relatively low cost, they are well worth it. They even come with 2 sets of handles so you can pick the look you want. The temperatures are consistent and the 3 zones are very convenient.
|Bottom Line:||I would recommend this product.|

|Comments:||Very happy to replace a thrmoelectic cooler with a compressor model. The cabinet is well-crafted and the shelves are amazing. There is plenty of room for a significant wine collection. |
One downside is that even though the bottom shelves are wider, it is hard to fit the advertised number of sparking bottles.
|Bottom Line:||I would recommend this product.|
