With summer finally arriving here in Northern California, it’s good to know that my wine is stored in a cool, dry place. While it’s only ooccasionallyover 80 degrees in San Francisco proper, there are plenty of days outside of the city limits that can stretch well in to the 90s. When my Avalon Bay AB-WINE27DS Dual Zone Wine Cooler arrived from Air n Water, I was looking forward to being able to just pop a bottle open at the right temperature and not worry about it. This particular model is a dual zone version, which is great for making sure that both your reds and well as whites or roses are chilled just right. For me, the top shelf, which has three racks, is perfecting for keeping all my roses just right. The bottom section, which I keep at about 57 degrees, is just right for my red wines that I want to have ready to drink. The sleek, tall design of this model makes it perfect for storing under my counter / bar top, and it fits right in next to my other furniture.
My favorite feature is that it is whisper quiet. With no compressor, and thermoelectric cooling technology, it’s easy on the wallet and easy on the ears. Another advantage to the thermoelectric cooling technology is that there is no danger of leakage, so you can put this on any carpeted surface without worry. Each zone has a separate light, so you can see your wine behind the glass door, and with removable shelves you can get creative with it. Love! This model is $249 and is available online as well as your local Sears store. Compared to another wine cooler I reviewed recently, I like the sleek design and dual zones on this very much! The Avalon Bay has a slightly better QPR and would be better suited for narrower spaces and those that want dual zone options.
