Capacity and design: This sleek-and-sophisticated looking Allavino VSWR172-2BWRN can accommodate 172 bottles in a dual-zone compressor-based system. When you have a wine collection of 150+ bottles, you are likely a wine enthusiast with diverse vintage collection.
This Allavino model has 14 shelves – twelve shelves that accommodate up to eleven bottles each and two shelves that can house twenty bottles each.
If elegant black is your preferred color choice for wine cooler, you would love this Allavino’s black cabinet with matching black-framed glass door and all-black interior.
The Allavino VSWR172-2BWRN (right hinge) or Allavino VSWR172-2BWLN (left hinge) has a front-venting design that works well as a built-in to your cabinetry or as stylish free-standing unit.
Dual temperature zone and blue LED light: The Allavino VSWR172-2BWRN features dual-zone that allows individual temperature control in the upper and lower zone respectively.
The upper zone can be set between 40°-55° F.
The lower zone can be set between 55°-65°F.
Note: the lower zone must be set at least 4 degree higher than the upper zone.
The temperature control panel is intuitive and easy to use. It has cool blue LED interior lighting that you can turn on or off.
Flexible shelving: We like Allavino’s FlexCount shelving design series, including this 172-bottles, the 56-bottles and the 36-bottles models.
The racks are sturdy metal that support the weight of bulk bottles without sagging.
The shelves are thin and flexible to accommodate larger diameter bottles without sacrificing overall storage capacity.
We find the shelves glide in and out easily (on ball-bearing tracks) and the wood slates help to reduce vibration.
Security lock: The Allavino VSWR172-2BWRN has a lock at the bottom of the door. A good feature to prevent unwanted guests to access your vintage collection.
