The Magic Chef MCWC12B is the smallest wine cooler model we researched, but it still holds 12 bottles of wine at a time.
This wine fridge holds 12 bottles, and even though it’s bigger than other units that hold the same amount of wine, the Avanti EWC1201 is still compact enough to fit on a counter.
The Koldfront TWR181ES wine cooler holds 18 standard-size bottles in two separate zones that can keep both red and white wines at ideal temperatures. It also gets cold enough to chill sparkling wines.
The Danby DWC93BLSDB is a single-zone, freestanding wine cooler that uses a thermoelectric cooling system, so it runs quieter than fridges that use compressors. It cools between 43 degrees and 57 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes it a good choice for white wines and lighter reds.
“Wine Enthusiast” is a wine magazine that also has a website featuring select wine accessories, including the Wine Enthusiast 272031805 18-bottle wine fridge.
The NutriChef PKTEWC18 is our top pick because it’s energy efficient and maintains its internal temperature.
