8 Reasons Why You Should Splurge On This Wine Cooler

This new wine storage column is worth the $8,000 price tag — and here’s why


Published:

Few can claim it as a must-have, but if you’re gonna splurge — and you love good wine — your own at-home storage system will make you very happy and help you avoid storing your prized bottles in a dark, dank, cold cellar. Sub-Zero’s integrated new wine storage column retails for a whopping $7,995. Yes, 8,000 smackers. Here’s why it costs so much:

  1. It looks great with its glass upper cabinet fronts so you can peer in and check your stash. Although it comes with a stainless steel front, you can customize the panels to match your own different choices.
  2. It can fit in many kitchens or pantries with its not-too-wide width of 30 inches. (It’s 84 inches high, and 24 inches deep.)
  3. It holds up to 86 bottles of wine — 750 ml, half-bottles, and magnums; that’s more than seven per month! The storage racks glide smoothly in and out, so you don’t jiggle the contents.
  4. Part of the high price is due to the two individually controlled wine storage areas, allowing you to store both reds and whites at the proper temperature.
  5. Dual evaporators maintain constant moderate humidity.
  6. More protection comes from the UV-resistant bronze-tinted glass on the front so light won’t hurt the contents.
  7. LED lighting illuminates the contents in a gentle, energy-efficient way.
  8. Proper pairing of wine and food is another critical component. The unit’s two refrigerator drawers will hold lots of cheeses, olives, pâté — even bottles of beer and water — so you can use your main fridge for other necessities.

Think it’s worth the price tag? Splurge away here.
