You can just remove a shelf if you need to put your larger or weird shaped bottles. It has a black cabinet and stainless steel trim around the glass door and a handle it will look good in any home decor. The wooden shelves also add to its great look and make it look like a Cali wine cellar. The top section is more suitable for your red bottles and the bottom section is more for your white wine bottles. You would need to remove a shelf or two for your champagne bottles.
It needs at least ten inches of clearance for the air vents at the back and five inches on both sides according to the user manual. And please do not use it as built into the counter as it can only be used as a standalone. The actual temperatures that you set both zones can be slightly different than what you set them, depending on the ambient temperature as this is a thermoelectric cooler and not compressor style. The door is not reversible and will open from the left to the right as the hinge is located on the right. It can not be shipped to California as it does not meet the CEC- California Energy Commission requirements for non-commercial fridges. It is an economical, quiet, well-functioning wine cooler with a premium look and feel and a superior touch panel.
