It is necessary to have an estimate as precise as possible when choosing your wine cabinet.

If you wish to age your wines, we recommend opting for one of our larger models, given that a portion of your bottles will take up space for several years.

A choice has to be made whether to go for capacity or ease of access. If you have many bottles to store, the capacity pack is recommended. By reducing the number of fixed shelves, there will be more space for customization, such as “open” bottles standing on the last shelf or the addition of display shelves (which can be purchased separately).

The full shelves configuration is very popular in North America. It allows an easier access to the bottles and exhibits each shelf nicely. However, this configuration slightly reduces the cabinet’s capacity, as only one row of bottles can be stored per shelf. 

The following capacity chart will help you understand each cabinet’s capacity.

 

Capacity Chart 

The chart below highlights the theoretical capacity per shelf based on the bottle shape. Fixed shelves can support several layers of bottles (within the maximum weight allowance) and therefore will have an overall higher capacity than the one indicated here.
