Wine Bottle Probe and Digital Control Panel
The probe provides an accurate reading of the temperature of your wine, and this easy-to-use digital control panel makes it simple to change settings.

You will have the following advantages of using a bottle probe.
1) Air temperature in the cabinet may fluctuate, but the wine temperature in the bottle is constant.
2) You can put a cooling unit in a full wine cabinet and show both the air temperature and bottle temperature.

Please allow 2-3 business weeks for production. Thank you.

Note: Extra air filter is not recommended for models of 2500 and below since it may restrict air flow. Instead, cabinet grill is used as a deterrent and protection from dust. However, the filter and frame can be attached to the wall grill and the filter will only cover the air intake portion of the grill.

If there are windows or if the cabinet is not located inside the home at the proper ambient temperature, the bottle coverage capacity and cubic feet will need to be reduced.

Wine~Mate cooling units are available in rear or top exhaust, but Vinotemp cabinets are available in rear, front, top or side vents depending on how the cooling unit is installed.

Top exhaust option is available at an additional charge.

Replacing a Vinotemp cooling unit for a wine cabinet because of the longevity of the product. Consider the Vinotemp products as excellent.

Bought the 700 unit storage unit through Costco 20 years ago. I had to get the refrigeration unit recharged a couple of times over the years. Finally bought a new unit and it plugged right in and works perfectly. New unit had digital temperature gauge which is a plus.

I recently purchased a replacement unit for our wine cabinet - which was about 15 years old. The new one is an exact fit, easy to install and the features and operations are easy to use and understand. I'm looking forward to another 15+ years of service from the new unit.

I ordered a replacement cooling unit for my wine cabinet that I bought in 2002. I exchanged a couple phone calls and emails with the sales agent who figured out what unit I needed as a replacement. So far, so good. The new unit is working and keeping my wine at 55 F. Vinotemp kept me informed about costs, etc. and delivered on what they promised.

This was a replacement for a 14 year old unit that was damaged due to Chinese drywall. It was a perfect fit, pretty easy in and out and appears to be working like the original when new. Very pleased, just wish it didn't cost so much!
