Leftover wine in the bottle happens. What to do about it has always been question worth asking. Often, the bottle gets replugged with the same cork and then simply left out on the counter. Turning it on its side in the fridge isn't really much of an option, considering that it's an open bottle and all. (Sure, one may think that the cork is in there securely, but this is drinking we are talking about after all.) So, the wine bottle remains on the counter, destined to be finished off at a temperature that is less than ideal.

When considering space, storage, and wine there are many options. The Vinotemp VT-8TEDTS-ID Thermoelectric Wine Cooler considers all three. Featuring enough storage for a reasonable eight bottles, the wine storage solution adds to the experience by providing upright storage for two bottles. Not only does this allow for the labels to be seen through the glass door, but it also provides a means to store wine that has already been opened.

Featuring an operating temperature range of 46-to 64-degrees Fahrenheit, it makes it easy to store wine the way it is meant to be stored. And when the inevitable half-finished bottle happens? Two flat-topped bottle stoppers come packaged with the unit, ensuring that when the evening is done, the wine has a place to go.
