The Seven Best Rated Small Wine Cellars for October 2014

Best seller roundups are among our most popular blog posts.  It’s time for another one – but we decided on to take a little different approach.

We wanted to showcase the Best Sellers in Small Wine Cellars, but to be honest, we couldn’t bring ourselves to publish a list with so many 2 star ratings.

So we are bringing you the list of the Best Rated Small Wine Cellars, and we are a lot more comfortable standing behind this list.

Smaller capacity units are the biggest sellers as most people don’t keep more than a couple of cases on hand.  If you need more storage space, check out our full size wine refrigerator reviews.

The number 1 choice is from Danby, one of the big brands in wine refrigerators.  It holds 51 bottles, two distinct cooling zones, and can be installed either undercounter or built-in.

Number two is a much smaller unit, the Allavino KWT-8BG Thermoelectric 8 Bottle Wine Refrigerator.  It sells for under $100 and fits on your countertop.  These are popular models for either storing a few bottles at the proper storage temperature, or keeping a few at a good serving temperature if you’re not going to store them very long.

The surprise member of the list is a single bottle wine serving system, which keeps the contents of one open wine bottle chilled and ready to serve.  It’s the Skybar WP0550 ONE 1-Chamber Wine Preservation System, and sells for around $256.  It uses vacuum technology to keep oxygen away from your wine, and the manufacturer says it will keep your wine ready to serve for about 10 days.
