Wine fridges – and especially the best wine fridges – are the ultimate Christmas luxury, perfect for storing Champagne, Prosecco or whatever else you plan on drinking over the festive period. Far from being a luxury only enjoyed by the wealthy, they're actually much more varied in price than you might imagine, with prices start from as little as £150. Plus you can buy countertop models you can take with you when you move (looking at you, renters). Not bad, eh?
So, if you're hosting this year and anticipating a fridge full of food, why not upgrade from nature's fridge (aka just outside the back door) to something a little more premium? With Black Friday just around the corner, we're anticipating prices will fall even further, so there's probably never been a better time to invest.
Below, you'll find our top picks from John Lewis. They vary in price, style and size, so you're sure to find something that suits. We'll be monitoring the price of these babies over on our John Lewis Black Friday page, too. So we'd recommend bookmarking it if you're looking to make a saving nearer to the big day.
1. The best budget wine fridge: Lec DF48B Small Wine and Beer Fridge
Proving that the best wine fridges don't have to cost the earth, the Lec DF48B Small Wine and Beer Fridge does everything you'd expect from a wine fridge, while retailing for just £149.
Stock it up with your favourite wines, beers, mixers and more – it can store up to 14 wine bottles. Then just sit back and let the party take care of itself. Sorted.
2. The best slim wine fridge: AEG SWE61501DG Wine Fridge
Don't let a small kitchen stamp on your dreams of a wine fridge. Just opt for a slimline solution instead. We love this AEG SWE61501DG Wine Fridge which would slot – pretty seamlessly – into even the smallest of spaces.
3. The best stylish wine fridge: Smeg FAB5R Freestanding Mini Fridge
Okay, so the Smeg FAB5R Freestanding Mini Fridge isn't technically a wine fridge. But it's so stylish we couldn't help but include it.
As far as fridges go, Smeg is pretty much royalty. So, if you can't justify buying a full sized model, why not pick up this little baby to store wine, beers and more, this Christmas.
4. The best luxury wine fridge: John Lewis & Partners JLWF611 Wine Cabinet
Looking to invest in something a little more luxurious? Look no further than the John Lewis & Partners JLWF611 Wine Cabinet. Complete with a super stylish, stainless steel design, this model is capable of stalling up to 46 wine bottles – which (we think) is more than enough to see you through a pretty jolly Christmas.
Plus, it's currently reduced to clear. Which means you can pick up this pretty premium piece, now for just £749, down from £899. Brilliant.
