Are Wine Fridges Noisy?

4/14/2021 1:01 PM

As with any major appliance, a wine refrigerator will make a certain amount of noise when in operation.

A wine refrigerator will operate at around 35 to 45 dB (decibels). For comparison, a kitchen refrigerator can be as loud as 47 dB, and a dishwasher will operate between 46 to 60 decibels. How loud your wine refrigerator is dependent mainly on a few different factors: ambient temperature, proper installation, and whether or not it has a thermoelectric or compressor cooling system.

Vinotemp wine coolers are designed for keeping wine at storage or serving temperature.

Wine coolers maintain a steady temperature around 55 degrees Fahrenheit and have racks that hold bottles horizontally (this position keeps the cork wet to maintain the seal). Can you use wine refrigerators to store beer? Read on to find out.

A wine refrigerator can be the best environment for wine.

A wine cooler or wine fridge is an appliance that can maintain a steady temperature specifically for the storage of wine. A consistent temperature of 55°F is essential because the storage temperature can significantly affect the flavors and aromas of the wine. Both storage and serving temperature can impact the wine drinking experience overall. Since we know that wine prefers a cool temperature, how cold is too cold?

All wine thrives at a storage temperature of 55F. While your wine collection may consist of a variety of different wines, it is safe to say that storing all of your wine at the same temperature will suffice.

Whether or not you need a dual-zone wine fridge will largely depend on how you plan to use your wine cooler. Here's what to consider when purchasing a dual-zone wine refrigerator.

Single vs. Dual-Zone Wine Coolers

Single-zone and dual-zone wine fridges both have their advantages and disadvantages.

If a unit is listed as a single-zone, it has only one interior storage space with no partition. A single temperature will be maintained to cool all wines to the same level. The efficiency depends on whether it is a thermoelectric or compressor-based system.

Pros of Single-Zone Wine Coolers:

• Maintain one steady temperature
• More economical than multi-zone wine coolers
• Cheaper than a wine cellar

Cons of Single-Zone Wine Coolers:

• Only one zone, no additional zone for serving temperature
• Some single-zone wine coolers have a lower bottle capacity

If you are contemplating purchasing a wine rack, you may be wondering how difficult it is to assemble.

The skill level required to build a wine rack largely depends on the wine rack you decide to purchase. For example, some wine racks arrive fully assembled and can be used right away, while others may require tools and an hour or two. Here we review three different types of wine racks; from no-assembly required to DIY, so you know what to expect when you order a wine rack from Vinotemp.

Easy to assemble wine racks include our modular wine racks, snap and stack modular wine racks, stackable wine racks, and lower capacity styles such as the ceramic bottle wine racks and horseshoe wine rack. Vinotemp's wood modular wine racks can be assembled similarly to Lincoln logs, a popular childhood toy. Each piece of the modular wine racks has a notch into which another piece of wood is inserted. The pieces are stacked on top of each other until fully assembled. Vinotemp's stackable wine racks come fully assembled. If you decide to stack them higher than three units, you should anchor them to the wall. Tabletop styles such as the ceramic bottle wine rack arrive assembled and ready to use. The snap and stack modular wine rack can be assembled without tools; you "snap" each piece together.
