Here Are The Top 10 Best Under-counter Wine Coolers 2017


Under-counter wine coolers are probably the most chic way to add a wine fridge to your kitchen. Inherently built-in under your kitchen counter they generally look sober yet classy, often using brushed stainless, amber glass doors, seamless handles and chrome trimmings

This list catalogs under-counter models in a variety of styles and form factors: Some are as narrow as 10-inch wide, to fit kitchens cabinets already cluttered by the dishwasher and the kitchen range, while others smartly separate white and red wines with french doors that give them a stylish boost. And, of course, some models make it a point to ostensibly display your most extravagant bottles using special inclined shelves.

All the under-the-counter models shown here are shorter than 36 inches so they can be built-in under standard kitchen counters, but at least 31-inch high. to look like a right fit. They must also feature front ventilation and be described by their manufacturer as made for built-in use.
