This model is discontinued.
N’FINITY wine cellars are a fairly new line of wine cabinets launched by Wine Enthusiast, manufacturer and retailer of small electric wine coolers, premium wine cabinets like Le Cache, Vinotheque and EuroCave, custom wine cellars and other wine accessories both through their website and catalogs.
The company decided to design and manufacture a new wine cabinet line that corrects common problems (accommodating wine bottles of varying sizes, temperature requirements for storing different types of wine etc.)reported by wine cooler/wine cellar owners. That’s how N’FINITY wine cellars were born.
Six models are currently available:
- a 23-bottle two-zone wine cooler
- a 50-bottle dual-zone unit
- a 100-bottle multi-temp. wine cellar
- a 121-bottle two-zone model
- a 170-bottle two-zone wine cabinet, and
- a 340-bottle multi-temp. wine cellar.

Setting the Temperature
Note: In order to maintain optimum operation the lower compartment should be set to minimum 4 degrees higher than the upper compartment.
Make sure the cabinet is properly connected to power according to the manual.
Press “On” to turn on the cellar.
Press the “Select” button to choose the Upper or Lower Zone
Set the desired temp. for the upper/lower zone by pressing the + (Up) and – (Down) buttons. The upper zone can be set between 41°F to 60°F (factory preset is 41°F), while the lower zone’s temp. range is 45°F – 64°F (factory preset 45°F).
- If you set the Upper or Lower zone between 52°F – 64°F, the LED light next to “RED” will light up, indicating that you are within the recommended range for serving Red Wines.
- If you set the Upper or Lower zone between 44°F – 51°F, the LED light next to “WHITE” will light up, indicating that you are within the recommended range for serving White Wines.
- If you set the Upper or Lower Zone between 41°F – 43°F, the LED light next to “SPARKLING” will light up, indicating that you are within the recommended range for serving Sparkling Wines.
In case of a power outage, all previous temperature settings will be automatically saved and each compartment will return to the previous temperature setting, a useful feature that many wine coolers lack.
30 sturdy hardwood shelves (15-15 in each compartment) that smoothly slide on ball-bearing tracks hold the wine bottles.
The spacing is wide enough to fit larger size bottles (Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Champagne).
Each rolling shelf is designed to hold 11 bottles of wine (max. capacity per shelf is 55 lbs.), and you can place 5 bottles on the cabinet floor on each cabinet side.
N’FINITY 340-Bottle Wine Cellar Review & Rating

- doesn’t maintain temperature
Rating (1- 5 stars):
14 blue LED lights provide low-intensity illumination for the cabinet interior. The On/Off switch is on the control panel.
