    It depends on the varietal.

    It will taste better if it's not refrigerated.

    Cold red wine-hard to taste the fragrances.
    They come alive at 70 degrees.

    More often than not red wine is served too warm. Should be 60-65 at serving

    Pull the white out of the fridge 30min before you serve it.

    Put the red in the fridge 30min before you serve it.

    Or buy a wine fridge.

    You might be right. I take it out of my wine cellar, which is below 60, and it sits a bit before drinking it.

    Also, if you don't finish the bottle, use a vacuum pump. And it tastes just as good the second night.

    Could DSM create a thread so asinine that even he could not reply to it?

    If yer wine tastes bad when its cold, then it is shitty wine.
    Gotz me some Nighttrain stashed in the side pow at Molly Hogan, chillin'

    DSM, I'd be more concerned about the lead and antifreeze content right now than the temperature.

    Friggin hate restaurants that keep red wine chilled. The flavors and nose in red wine need room temps to come to life. I'll get a glass, and let it sit while having a bourbon if I know they do that.

    Doing a small kitchen remodel and adding a drybar area on far end of kitchen where we planned to put a wine refridge undercounter that my SO has always wanted.

    She is the winer drinker....99% Reds....$15-$30 a bottle. What she buys she consumes within 2-3 months. Not a wine club subscriber. Currently stores wines on shelf in mud room where its cooler and darker.

    I suspect she like the "status" look of at wine refridge too and wants to store some additional drink bottles or cans there too for overflow.

    However I think both of us thought these were a $200-500 thing. Now our designer and multiple friends are claiming you should be getting a $2000 unit and anything less will be garbage and break $2000??????????? WTF.......I think thats how much we paid for our standard fridge!!!!!

    Am I out of touch for thinking this is crazy for wine that will not be stored long enough to go bad and to store some 50 cent drinks? Not to mention the added electricity bill and noise of the compressor.

    She is ready to toss in the towel and just cabinet it up but I hate to dash her dreams so quickly.

    If you're drinking within 2-3 months, there is no point in a $2k wine fridge. You'd be much better off spending it on some wine tourism. A cool, dark place that doesn't get massive temperature swings is all you need.

    Put a wine rack in, maybe with a cover if the area gets light. Buy her a Coravin. Spend the rest of the money flying to a good Old World wine region and drink baller wine for 10 euros a bottle.

    Go dig a pit in your backyard and stack some bricks for a true cellar temp dank feel of a french cave in Beaverton. Maybe mix in a few spiders to add the true cellar cobweb effect.
