The Allavino MWR-541-BR-C is a single-zone, 51 bottle, freestanding or built-in undercounter wine cooler. It has a compressor for cooling with 5 pull out wooden shelves on ball-bearing tracks and one fixed shelf at the bottom.  The sliding hardwood shelves are not adjustable but they can be removed. A wide temperature range means you can chill whites or reds to a good drinking temperature – but not both.  It has a stylish but not showy look, with a digital temperature display, blue LED lighting, a black trimmed tinted glass door for UV protection, and a black cabinet.

Allavino MWR-541-BR-C 51 Bottle Wine Refrigerator

51 Bottle Capacity but the shelves are not space super close together like on some units.

Capacity

With a capacity of 51 bottles, just over 4 cases, the Allavino MWR-541-BR-C is a great size for the casual collector.

The shelves are spaced far enough apart to hold larger bottles such as Pinot Noir or Champagne.  The five sliding shelves hold two rows of bottles each, neck to neck.  Depending on bottle size and how you place the bottles on the shelves, you may not fit a full 51 bottles in your cooler, but you should be in the 45 to 51 range.

Zones

A single zone makes the Allavino MWR-541-BR-C best suited for you if you prefer white wine or red wine but not both, or want to use this solely for storing wine, not chilling them for drinking.

Temperature Control

Temperature control is easy to use with a prominent and attractive digital temperature readout with convenient up/down controls.

The controls are located inside the unit.  They are easy to read but you need to open the door to adjust them.

Reviewers report good temperature control.

Cooling

Compressor based cooling is relatively quiet – you can hear it in a silent room but customers report they soon grow used to it and don’t notice it anymore.

The cooling range is impressive, from 41 to 60 degrees, plenty cold enough for the chilled white wine lover but also capable of keeping reds at a good drinking or storage temperature.  It is rated to hold the set temperature when the ambient temperature is between 45 and 80 degrees.

Allavino says y0u should plug this into a dedicated 115V outlet.

Allavino MWR-541-BR-C 51 Bottle Wine Refrigerator

Good support on the wooden shelves with ball bearing slides.

Fit and Finish

Fit and finish is standard good consumer grade, with owners saying it looks nice but more utilitarian than fancy.

Customer Reviews

Customer reviews on various sites have been favorable with over 75% very good or excellent.

Warranty

One year limited manufacturer’s warranty.

Design

The smooth acting sliding shelves are a plus and the wood looks nice.  Storing two rows of bottles on each of the 5 sliding shelves is a good way to fit more bottles in a unit this height and width. The door hinge is not reversible so make sure a right-side hinge works for your installation.

Wow Factor

The wood shelves look nice but the all black finish is a bit plain.  The blue LED lighting adds a bit of pizzazz.

The Allavino MWR-541-BR-C is an attractive single-zone wine refrigerator with compressor-based cooling, distinctive sliding wood shelves, very good capacity for an undercounter unit, digital temperature control and readout, and the ability to cool your wine all the way down to 41 degrees if desired.
