Allavino YHWR115-1BRN 115-Bottle Wine Cooler
Allavino YHWR115-1BRN is a large 115 bottle capacity single zone wine cooler fridge with a black door, as part of the Allavino Vite series. You can purchase it in either black or stainless steel with the latter 45 dollars more at the time of this review.
Allavino Cooler has an LCD-backlit digital temperature display panel with the push button controls for light, temperature up and down, and power. It includes two cool blue LED interior lights at the top to show off your wine bottles nicely or to let you pick your bottle without having to keep the door open longer each time. These lights will cast a soft blue glow on all your bottles, without any heat generated unlike the incandescent bulbs.
The interior temperature can be set between 41 and 73 degrees Fahrenheit, which is probably the widest range in the wine cooler industry. This means you can set it high enough for your red bottles and low enough for your white bottles, depending on how cold you would like your wines. You can view the lit display panel via the double paned glass door, so you can monitor the current temperature.
This Allavino comes with the 9 easy gliding hardwood shelves that roll smoothly. You can put 13 regular sized and shaped bottles on each of these very thick and sturdy shelves. If you have the larger or weird shaped bottles you can adjust these shelves at 1.25-inch increments. Please note that the total bottle capacity will be reduced if you put these large or different shaped bottles on the shelves.
Bottles located in all parts of this cooler will benefit from the even cooling thanks to the internal fan that circulates the air all over. There won’t be any temperature differences between the lower and higher shelves. And the first cooling down will be much quicker, at half the time. The dual panel thermal insulated tinted glass door is argon filled and ultraviolet protected to keep the harmful UV rays away from your wine bottles, for the best insulation.
There is an integrated key lock at the bottom and you’ll get a spare key as well, in case you lose the first one. You will also get two handles, a curved handle and a towel bar handle. And it is up to you which one of these handles you want to use or would fit your kitchen or living room decor. The 115-bottle capacity Allavino Vite series cooler weighs 167 pounds and measures 23.5 x 23.5 x 64.5 inches.
One of the customers that purchased this wine cellar points out the noise level of the compressor and how cold it is inside- colder than what they set it to. If you have different shaped bottles as well as the regular Bordeaux bottles, you can fit about 80 to 90 bottles in total in practice. They all have to be thin Bordeaux bottles to have 115 bottles in there. This is a new release unit and let’s see what the other reviews will be like and you may want to check out the alternative coolers as well through the links on this page.
