Most 30-bottle wine coolers are single-zone units, they don’t have two individually controlled compartments for chilling whites and storing/cooling reds.

TIP: View some great, small-sized dual zone wine refrigerators, including models with 28 – 33 bottle storage capacity.

Note: Many small wine coolers used to apply thermoelectric (also known as Peltier-) technology instead of traditional compressor-based refrigeration.

Today, however, most 30+ bottle wine fridges are based on compressor cooling which ensures more stable temperatures while using less electricity.
