High End Wine Storage

If you’re looking for a combination of quality and style in an appliance than U-Line Wine cooler refrigerators are among the first brands that should come to your mind.

U-line offers two wine refrigerator series the Échelon and the Origins, and each series has several models so that you have many options to choose from.

The Echelon models have black interios and black cabinet, while the U-Line Origins wine coolers come with white interiors.

The swing-door models have 3 temperature zones within the cabinet while in the drawer models two zones were designed.

The triple-temperature zone design allows you to store 3 different types of wine – white, red and sparkling wine – at 3 different temperatures levels within the same cabinet. All U-Line models have automatic defrosting.

If you want to store and cool only one type of wine, a few bottles of your favourite white than you can adjust the most favorable tempererature for that wine within the whole cooler.

This way you’ll never run out of your most cherished wine. Read more about dual zone wine refrigerators.
