How many bottles will the SWISSCAVE WL455F hold?

Like most wine cooler producers, capacity sizes are referenced using Bordeaux style bottles. This wine cooler holds 169 bottles on 8 beech shelves and up to 210 wine bottles with shelving removed.

The design of the Classic Edition range suits those wishing to house a larger capacity of bottles at a lower price as the internal volume contains less shelving. There are two layers of bottles that can fit between each shelf. With all shelves installed you can fit 169 bottles into the wine cooler.

The best way to optimise space in your wine fridge is to stack the same bottle type (Bordeaux or Burgundy or Alsace for example) on the same shelves.
