Step 3: What capacity (number of bottles) do you need
Which capacity (number of bottles) do you need?
When choosing a wine cooler, it is smart to first determine how large it should be. How much space do you have for it in your house and how many bottles would you like to be able to store?
The capacity of a wine cooler is often indicated in the number of Bordeaux wine bottles. This is the 'standard size' wine bottle. However, in reality you will also store bottles that are a bit thicker or longer (e.g. the Bourgogne or Champagne bottle). Therefore, take some capacity loss into account: on a drawer of a wine cooler where another, thicker type of bottle is placed besides Bordeaux bottles, there is usually room for one wine bottle less.
