International Wine Association Wine Cooler

By: Kellie K. Speed

Wine connoisseurs are abounding everywhere recently, especially after the movie "Sideways" was introduced last year.  Visits to Napa Valley have increased and people are gaining more knowledge and an appreciation for fine wine.
What better way to showcase your collection than with the Avanti 12-bottle thermoelectric tower.  Reasonably priced at $149.95, the unit stays true to its advertisement of "whisper-quiet, vibration-free" thermo-electric technology.  The unit protects wine from temperature fluctuations, vibrations and excessive light exposure caused by storing wines in a regular household refrigerator or in an open environment.
This unique wine cellar maintains steady and proper temperature for the wine, provides an accurate temperature reading via a digital display and features a low-vibration design -- prolonging the life and flavor of your wine.  The unit is equipped with a guide outlining the optimum temperatures for both red and white wines.  It is simple to set the temperature, just adjust the thermostat according to the collection.  The unit is also designed with auto-defrost capability. 
The most unique feature of the unique is not only the thermo-pane reversible glass door but the slide out chrome shelves, which make reaching for that bottle of wine just a little easier.  If you are worried about your children getting into your collection, there is a lock on the outside which provides added security. 
The Avanti unit is classically sleek and is slim enough to fit into a narrow space and holds exactly a case of wine.  Dimensions are 25 1/2"H x 10 1/4"W x 20 3/4"D.  It is an ideal refrigerator for the beginning wine enthusiast.  For the more knowledgeable wine tasters, try a larger model like the 54 bottle display.  Of course, for the savvy wine connoisseur, there are models like the Estate Masterpiece, which holds 400 bottles and retails for $3,695.
