Not everyone has a dedicated room for their favorite bottles of vino, but these high-tech wine fridges are the next best thing.

Over the years, I’ve made a hobby of collecting wine from shops around the world. It always seems like a great idea, until I get home and realize that I do not, in fact, have an underground wine cellar. Fortunately, when a good bottle calls on the patience of aging, or you’re just not quite ready to uncork it, there are plenty of storage options for your favorite varietals.

There are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind when shopping for wine storage, including how much space you realistically have to devote to your favorite pinot, what temperatures will best suit your collection, and which functional designs can accommodate various bottle sizes. If you’re wondering why you can’t just throw your bottles in your regular fridge, keep in mind that wine fridges offer better temperature control and aren’t opened as often, which will help to preserve your bottles. Not to mention, the optimal temperature range for storing wine is between 45° F and 65° F—and our standard kitchen refrigerators run several degrees colder (usually around 37° F). While it may not seem like a huge difference, storing wine in a standard fridge can stunt its development, expose it to air and dry out its cork.

Here are the best wine fridge options to consider, including space-saving and functional pieces for your favorite bottles.

This stainless steel wine cooler has a contemporary design, but would look equally beautiful in a traditional kitchen. With a 44-bottle capacity and dual zone temperature control to maintain temps between 43 degrees F to 62 degrees F, this wine center can help keep your favorite reds and whites at the perfect serving temperature.

This is one high-tech wine cooler! LED display makes it easy to see all of the available options, and digital touch controls provide precise temperature settings to ensure your favorite bottles are ideal for aging or serving. We also love that the slide-out wine rack has full extension—and up to 57 bottles can be positioned horizontally or vertically to maximize space.

This built-in wine cooler is so chic with its black exterior and volcano-inspired obsidian interior. With a 45-bottle capacity and six extending wine racks, it has plenty of room for your vino collection. There's even a Sabbath Mode (read: all lights, digital features, fans, and alarms turn off to comply with the holiday, but the temps remain steady).

Unimposing at under 18 inches wide, this built-in, cave-like refrigerator still holds up to 71 bottles of wine. Opaque doors offer UV protection, while touch display lighting helps illuminate your vino options. Two separate temp zones help keep your reds and whites at their optimal temperatures.

With a steady temperature that holds with minimal noise, this wine cooler can store up to 32 Bordeaux-size bottles. A digital touch screen allows you to set the temperature and turn on the light to see inside for easy identification. The dual zone option creates two different temperatures for either top and bottom or side-by-side or sections of the fridge.

This fridge includes UV-protective glass to help protect bottles from exposure to light. It can be freestanding or installed as built-in storage. It also features an auto defrost cycle and passive humidity control.

For those with limited storage space, this mini fridge can hold up to eight standard wine bottles and even larger Champagne bottles. Temperature levels and lighting can be controlled from the touchscreen on the door and an energy-efficient cooling system creates very little noise.

Preserve your best bottles from your phone with this app-controlled wine fridge. The model is available in three different sizes that can accommodate 18 bottles to 34 bottles.

When simple functionality is your aim, this compact fridge is ideal for storing standard-sized red or white wines at one temperature. The reinforced glass door and vibration-free system provides optimal storage.
