The 5 Best Mini Wine Fridges 2017 (And 11 Other Models)


Not all kitchens accommodate large wine refrigerators, and many of us just want to store and display a handful of our best wines for special guests or family dinners, right? In that case, a mini wine fridge that typically holds 4 to 8 wine bottles atop a small counter space might be the way to go.

Mostly trading off the niceties of larger models -- like too different cooling zones, luscious wood shelves or security locks, mini wine coolers are small-enough to fit limited kitchen spaces and corners. Here are several of the latest counter-top models, mostly storing bottles in a single temperature zone. Some of these mini wine coolers are even able to dispense per-glass servings while others can be affixed under a cupboard. They are also among the cheapest models we have found.

Almost all mini fridges listed here are freestanding models and have space for less than 9 bottles (typically 4 or 8, but some models hold 6 bottles).
