Single Zone Wine Coolers

83 products

    Wine coolers can either have a single temperature zone, dual temperature zones, or multi-temperature zones.

    Single zone wine coolers are set to just one temperature that is maintained throughout the whole wine cooler. Most people will either set the temperature to long-term storage temperature, or to serving temperature - but not both.

    Most smaller wine coolers have just one temperature zone - this is because most people don’t buy small wine coolers to store varied wine collections. Most people will use a small wine cooler to store just one type of wine, which is why the majority of small wine coolers have just one temperature zone.

    Common Features of Single Zone Wine Coolers

    Wine coolers come in all different colours and designs and can have a variety of different features.

    A common feature found in single zone wine coolers is a charcoal filter - charcoal filters are designed to eliminate any unwanted aromas, which is ideal for wine collectors, investors, or those who simply love their wine.

    Some wine coolers feature locks, which means that your wine will be safe and protected. This feature is especially useful if you have children or teenagers in the home, or if you don’t trust your flatmates!

    You can also find wine coolers that feature a vibration-free compressor, which works to keep movements within the unit to a minimum. Vibrations can impact how well wine tastes and matures and can prevent any sediment from settling in the body of the wine. Wine investors and collectors especially benefit from purchasing a wine cooler with a vibration-free compressor.

    Single Zone Wine Cooler Installation

    The way a wine cooler is installed depends on whether it’s freestanding, built-in, or integrated. Regardless of the design, it’s important that all manufacturer instructions are followed to avoid damaging the cooler and voiding the warranty.

    Freestanding single zone wine coolers require more space for ventilation than built-in and integrated units. As the fans are located at the rear of the unit, there needs to be a few inches of space around the rear and sides to allow the warm air to exit and the cold air to enter.

    You should also leave around 12 inches of space above the cooler. Most freestanding wine coolers aren’t suitable for built-in use and should stand freely without obstructions.

    Built-in and integrated wine coolers are a little different, and they don’t need as much space for ventilation as they are designed to be built into kitchen space (e.g cabinets or under counters).

    However, it’s important that you check with the manufacturer, and always opt for professional installation when possible.

    Key Benefits of Single Zone Wine Coolers

    Wine coolers with just one temperature zone are typically more affordable and consume less electricity meaning that your electricity bill won’t be too high.

    Single zone wine coolers are ideal for storing large wine collections in the long term as they maintain a steady temperature throughout the whole unit.

    You may use a single zone wine cooler to store your wine in the long term uninterrupted, as you won’t need additional temperature zones to prepare your wine for serving.

    Single zone wine coolers aren’t typically suited to varied collections as varied collections will benefit from dual or multi-temperature zones - a specific set temperature per type of wine.

    If you have a non-varied collection (e.g a collection of just red wine), or you want to store your wine in the long term (not for serving) then a single zone wine cooler may be the most affordable and appropriate option for you.

    Single Zone Wine Coolers FAQ

    Why Can’t My Reds and Whites Be Stored At The Same Temperature?

    There’s no set rule telling you that you can’t store your reds and whites at the same temperature, but the general rule of thumb is that whites are best stored at lower temperatures for serving.

    Red wine is best served at around 12 to 18°C whereas white wine is best served at 9 to 12°C. If you want to store a combination of red and white wines within the same cooler for serving, then you may want to opt for a dual-zone wine cooler rather than a single zone wine cooler.

    However, if you plan on storing your wine in the long term, whether it be for ageing or you simply want your wine to remain as fresh as possible, then there shouldn’t be any problems storing your reds and whites at the same temperature within the same unit - around 12-13°C should be fine.

    Why Shouldn’t I Freeze Wine?

    Wine shouldn’t be frozen as once a wine freezes, it can lose its flavours and aromas, leaving it tasting bland and generally unpleasant.

    Another reason that you should avoid freezing wine is because the cork could shrink and slip out of place, exposing your wine to oxygen.

    If you’re not a wine collector, investor, or an oenophile, then you shouldn’t notice too much of a difference if you freeze your wine. However, if you take wine seriously, then freezing your wine is a no-go.

    In the long term, wine is best stored at between 11 and 14°C for the flavours to develop in the right way.

    Wine is always best stored in either a wine cellar, a wine cooler, or a wine cabinet. Storing your wine in the right way is key to preserving the flavours and ageing it correctly.

    However, if you want to save the last drops of your favourite red to use later on in cooking, then you could always pour it into an ice cube tray.

    Always avoid storing glass bottles in the freezer as the glass could shatter.
