Product Details
Description
Keep up to 12 bottles properly chilled with this freestanding wine chiller. The unit's innovative thermo-electric cooling system, which involves very few moving parts, protects wine from unnecessary vibration. More importantly, thermo-electric cooling does not use ozone-depleting chemicals such as CFC's or HCFC's, which means it's better for the environment. In addition, the wine-cooling unit's dual-paned glass door provides better UV protection and better insulation properties for enhanced energy efficiency. Other highlights include a maximum ambient room temperature of 77 degrees F, easy push-button controls, digital temperature display, and sturdy shelf racking for individual bottle storage. Three pull-out chrome shelves are included. Attractively housed in a black cabinet with stainless-steel trim, the wine chiller measures 21-3/4 by 13-1/2 by 18-5/16 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty.

Great bottle Warmer
1 Star Review   By member andersal20 - Jun 30, 2011   

Strengths: Looks pretty

Weakness: doesnt work

It worked just fine for about 18 months, then one day it just stopped working. I have the same issue as the other people, with a chirping sound and flashing red and greeen lights on the circuitboard on the back. But no way to fix it without a replacement part. On the bright side I can now keep my red wine at room temperature in a flashy looking case.DONT BUY

Definitely not designed to last
1 Star Review   By member lenreinsmith - Nov 28, 2010   

Strengths: Price, relatively quiet

Weakness: Bad design. Does not last. Apparently no overheat/surge/anything protection. When something happens, it just quits.

Unless and until Vinotemp builds products to last, you should just stay away from them. It is not worth the low price. I enjoyed the wine cooler while it worked. For a couple extra bucks they could design one to function longer.

Awful - broke after a year
1 Star Review     

Strengths: Convenient and reasonable price

Weakness: Doesn't last very long

I bought the refrigerator from Costco and after a year it just stopped working. It seems all the reviews I have read are negative and 90% have the same experience of the unit breaking after about a year of use. You would think the company would try to fix the problem after having so many complaints. I will never even consider looking at another Vinotemp product.

A PIECE OF JUNK!!!
1 Star Review   By member ragger - Oct 1, 2009   

Strengths: Works OK until it's well-known, way too premature death...

Weakness: Dies in its infancy, so aborting the idea of giving it life in your home would be exceptionally justified!

If you do a search on this unit, you will see numerous reviews attesting to the fact that this is a piece of junk, that will probbaly last about 1 year, give or take a few months. Vinotemp knows about this & will tell you you need a control board replacement at a cost of about $50 (w/shipping). Avoid yourself the hassle & look for another brand. The terms "aged" & "vintage" would never be applicable to this unit.

COSTCO WINE REFRIGERATOR
1 Star Review   By member jvelson - Jul 1, 2009   

Strengths: Held temperature well

Weakness: a bit noisey

Identical to other reviews, this unit quit on us within a year. The power simply stopped. There is no fuse to replace, no way to fix for the average user. I would not recommend this product at all.

Did not last
2 Star Review   By member wino2009 - May 17, 2009   

Strengths: size

Weakness: noise and warranty

My cooler only lasted 15 months. No wonder there is only a 90 day warranty on these things, they just don't last. I can hear a clicking sound when powered and there is a green and red flashing light inside the back of the unit. Other than that, there is no power to anything else. I would definitely not buy this unit again. Buyer beware!

less than satisfactory performance
1 Star Review     

Strengths: nice looking, compact size

Weakness: stopped working in less than 2 years

Like the other reviewer's product ours stopped working less than 2 years after purchase. We contacted the mfgr whose tech rep gave us a possible diagnosis over the phone. The Co now wants to charge us $50 to have a part shipped to us to make our own repair with no guarentee that this repair will do the job but we cannot return the part if it doesn't work.
