Building a house with a small wine room and looking for refrigerated wine storage of 150+ bottles. Heard Eurocave is good but having a hard time finding reviews of the product.

    I have the Sub Zero and love it. I looked at a lot of brands and a lot of them had very flimsy drawers. We've had the Sub Zero about 3 years now and have never had any problems. It's functional and looks great too!

      Thank you. I understand that champagne bottles have difficulty fitting within the Sub Zero shelves. Have you found this to be true?

        I keep it filled with all reds - but I just tried putting a Spanish Cava in there and it fit just fine. I'm not sure if it's the same size as a champgne bottle, but there was room to spare.

      if you talk to serious wine collectors (at least those that don't have an actual cellar), Eurocave is #1 (I have 3). Not cheap, but very reliable and well designed.

      No direct experience with SubZero, but you'll definitely be paying for the trendy name and look.

      Post a question on wineberserkers and you'll get lots of opinions (erobertparker is a pay site now).
