The Montpellier WC181X benefits from two temperature zones, the white or lower range being 2-12°C and the red or upper range being 12-20°C. As an ideal temperature to store both red and white is 12°C you can choose to use the entire fridge for long term storing or part of the fridge for storage and the other part for service. This unusually large range of temperatures allows for optimum conditions for the full range of storage and service of all wines, from Champagne and Ice Wine (5°C) all the way to vintage Bordeaux and Port (18°C).


1. Precision Temperature Control

Protecting your wines from harmful UV rays is paramount in preserving their quality. The Montpellier WC181X comes equipped with a UV-resistant glass door, shielding your wines from light exposure while still allowing you to showcase your collection through an elegant and transparent display.

7. User-Friendly Interface

Navigating the settings and monitoring the conditions of your wine fridge should be a breeze. The WC181X incorporates a user-friendly interface, allowing you to adjust settings, check temperatures, and manage your collection with ease.

The large number of telescopic beech shelves makes finding that specific bottle of wine much easier. Unlike many wine fridges where bottles are stacked upon one another leaving you picking up and turning the bottles over to find that one bottle, you can see all your bottles and labels clearly without removing any bottles making this wine cooler perfect for showcasing your wines.
