This article will discuss whether or not you should purchase a dual-zone wine fridge.

To ensure that everyone is on the same page, let’s go over what a wine cooler is and why they’re useful.

Wine coolers (also known as wine fridges) are a storage solution for those who need to store more than a dozen wine bottles.

Do You Need a Dual Zone Wine Fridge?

If you enjoy wine, you should consider purchasing a dual-zone wine refrigerator.

They’re simply a great investment for wine enthusiasts because they help to ensure that you can enjoy the taste of your wine at its peak.

A dual-zone wine fridge has two separate temperature zones, as opposed to a single-zone unit, which only has one.

The two temperature zones are typically kept at different temperatures to preserve different types of wine, such as white and red wines so that they can be stored at their optimal serving temperatures.

Red wines, in particular, should be served between 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit, while white wines should be served around 55 degrees [WineFolly].

Dual-zone wine coolers, like single-zone wine coolers, are available in freestanding and built-in configurations. Making them adaptable to your placement needs.



  • Store wines at different temperatures
  • Takes up less physical space
  • Freestanding & built in placement options



  • Often more expensive than single-zone wine coolers
  • A little louder than single-zone units as they require a larger space to be cooled.



Although these units are frequently more expensive, there are some good deals to be had. To see those, visit our recommended list of dual zone wine fridges.

Nonetheless, when compared to single-zone units, they are the best choice if space is limited.
