There’s nothing quite like cracking open a bottle of your favorite Oyster Bay savvy B after a particularly long day—and it’s even better when it's chilled at precisely the right temperature. While you could store your wine in the refrigerator along with everything else, a wine fridge will allow you to store, protect and chill your favorite whites, reds, rosés and bubbles at the exact temp they were meant to be enjoyed (not to mention save precious space in your regular refrigerator). Plus, you’ll feel quite sophisticated in the process. Essentially, it’s an investment every novice sommelier should be making.
The best wine fridges on our list have multiple cooling zones to cater to all your different bottles (though a less sophisticated model will do the job in a pinch or on a budget). We also considered bottle capacity, warranty and appearance when rounding out our best of the best.
