In this article, we’ll look at the typical width of a commercial wine fridge.
Given that you’re reading this, we’ll assume you’re looking for and want to know if a commercial wine cooler is right for you.
As a result, we’ll not only discuss the width of a commercial wine fridge (with real-world examples), but also other factors to consider before purchasing a unit, such as placement, price, features, and so on.
With that said, let’s talk wine cooler width and other important wine storage considerations!
Given that each model has a distinct structural design, visual appeal, and material composition, commercial wine refrigerator sizes can vary depending on the brand and the particular model.
The average width of them, according to our research, is between 23 and 31.5 inches.
The term “commercial wine fridge” is also somewhat ambiguous, as some may consider a 50-bottle wine cooler to be commercially suitable, while others may only consider units with a capacity of more than 150 bottles to be sufficient.
In light of the foregoing, we’ll examine the most well-liked wine coolers at each bottle capacity, which ranges from 50 to 250, with an increase of 100 each time.

What Other Factors Are Important To Consider?
There are several factors to consider when looking to purchase a commercial wine refrigerator, these include:
The location of a wine cooler is particularly important to consider because it will be determined by the type that you purchase. A wine fridge without a front-facing vent, for example, cannot be installed in a built-in/undercounter position. This distinguishes freestanding wine coolers from built-in wine coolers.
What is the function of a wine refrigerator? Is this for personal or commercial purposes? This will have a direct impact on the type and size of unit you select, because wine coolers designed for business/commercial use are larger in size and have more features, making them more expensive.
The number of wine bottles that can be stored and cooled is referred to as bottle capacity. As a result, this is directly related to ‘usage,’ and will be determined by whether you want a small bottle capacity unit for personal use or a large bottle capacity unit for commercial use.
Another important factor to consider is the type, brand, and model (and subsequent features) that you will be able to purchase, as these will influence the price. It’s important to remember that a wine refrigerator is an investment, and buying cheap can sometimes mean buying twice.
Height & Weight
Similar to the width of the wine refrigerator, the product dimensions, height, and weight of the unit must be considered, not only for placement reasons, but also when planning transport and maneuverability in your home or commercial environment.
Last but not least, physical aesthetics (stainless steel or plastic), wine rack material (wood or metal), zone capacity (single zone or dual zone) in case you need to store different types of wine (red wine and white wine) in the same unit as part of your wine collection, temperature range, LED lighting color, glass door type (tempered or tinted glass for optimal UV protection), locking functionality, and temperature range are all important factors to consider.
We hope that this article has provided you with some insight into the typical width of a commercial wine refrigerator; we understand how important this is, especially if the unit will be built-in or undercounter.
I’ve been a wine enthusiast for over 20 years, and have sold wine refrigerators for the last 15 years. So I would consider myself to be a wine fridge expert. Hence why I created this blog, read between wines, where I post about wine fridges, wines and wine equipment.
