Some people might be wondering just how wide a large wine cooler actually is. Well, don’t worry – we’re here to help.

In this article, we’re going to be discussing the typical width of a large wine refrigerator.

We imagine that you’re potentially in the market, looking to find out if a large-sized wine cooler is suitable for your needs; Therefore, in addition to talking about a large wine fridge‘s width (providing real examples), we’ll also be touching on the other considerations that you’ll want to consider before selecting a unit.

With that being said, let’s talk wine cooler width and other considerations surrounding wine storage!

What Is A Wine Cooler?

A wine cooler is a large appliance typically used to store and cool wine. They come in a variety of sizes, and can hold a lot of wine.

A large wine fridge is simply a unit that has a greater bottle storage capacity. They are often heavier and most notably larger in size (due to the extra bottle capacity), but there are some good benefits of purchasing such a unit.

How Wide Is A Large Wine Fridge?

Large wine refrigerators vary in size somewhat, from brand to brand, comparing different models, as each one has a different structural design, aesthetic appearance, and is manufactured using different materials.

However, from our research, they on average range from 23″ (inches) to 31.5″ (inches) in width.

Additionally, a ‘large wine fridge‘ is quite an ambiguous descriptive, because some may consider a 50 bottle wine cooler to be large, whilst others might only consider units with over a 150 bottle capacity to suffice.

With that being said, we’re going to look at the most popular wine coolers at each bottle capacity, incrementing by 100 each time, from 50 through to 250.

What Other Factors Are Important To Consider?


The placement of a wine fridge is especially important to consider, because it will depend on the type that you purchase. For example, a wine fridge that doesn’t have a front-facing vent cannot be put into a built-in/undercounter position. This is the difference between freestanding and built-in wine coolers.


What do you need the wine refrigerator for? Is this for personal use or commercial usage? This will dictate the type and size of unit that you end up choosing, because wine coolers that are intended for business/commercial use are larger in size and have additional features – Equally, they are also more expensive.

Wine Bottle Capacity

Bottle capacity essentially determines the number of wine bottles that can be stored and cooled. Therefore, this also ties directly into ‘usage’, and will be based on whether you’re looking for a small bottle capacity unit that is suited for personal usage, or a large-capacity wine cooler for commercial purposes.


Another extremely important factor to consider, that will determine the type, brand and model (and subsequent features) that you’ll be able to purchase. It’s useful to remember that a wine fridge is an investment, and sometimes buying cheap means you may buy twice.

Height & Weight

Similar to the width of the wine fridge, it’s very important to consider the product dimensions, height, and weight of the unit, not just for placement reasons, but also when planning out the transport and maneuverability of getting it in place, in your home or commercial setting.


Last but not least features are another aspect to consider, whether that’s the physical aesthetic (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 simultaneously (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, etc.


We hope this article provides some insight into the typical width of a large-sized wine refrigerator; As we know how important this is, especially if the unit is being placed in a built-in or undercounter location.

Not only this, we hope you’ve found the other considerations that we’ve suggested very useful.
