Best 300 Bottle Wine Fridge

If you're looking for a large capacity wine fridge cabinet to store around 300 bottles or more than there isn't too much on the market with most wine cabinets offerings between 150-200 bottles on average. For those wishing to store 300 wine bottles compromises on the internal capacity, especially around the number of shelves, will need to be made.

Some of the wine cabinets we will recommend below are very large, over 2 meters tall and heavy at around 100kg+. These types of wine cabinets will come with heavy duty shelving as it is without question that bottle stacking will need to happen.

One surprising note is that these large wine cabinets are not always very expensive in relative terms, starting from the mid £1000s and come from very reliable brands like Climadiff, La Sommeliere, Liebherr, Avintage and mQuvee.

All of these are freestanding wine fridges as no wine fridge with more than 300 bottle capacity can be built into a kitchen, you would need to purchase two wine fridges in that case.
