Since 1985, we have sold over a million wine cellars in the U.S. and Designer Series Wine Coolers Francis Ravel, the innovator and creator of Vinotemp, was a man ahead of his time. He began his venture by selling and making his own wine. This is where he was first introduced to the idea of placing a cooling unit into a sealed wine cabinet. In the beginning, he had one factory making the wine cabinets and another making the cooling systems. Ravel then began manufacturing the wine cabinets himself. In the '90s, he decided to ameliorate the problems with the current wine cooling system. With better components, he created the Wine-Mate cooling unit; the only UL approved wine cooling system of the time. His daughter worked with him for 15 years and is now the President of Vinotemp International.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Great seller, horrible waranty support. I bought this to finish off a $50,000 wine room and it worked great for about three months. Then the temperature sensor went out and it would run all the time. It took 2 months for the company to send a repair man who ended up not repairing it. Then it took nearly another month to get them to send a replacement unit!!! It is a horrible company when it comes to backing their products. I was completely stunned at their inaction. When you are dealing with serious wine collectors, you do not want an upscale company ignoring a faulty product. If the unit works, then you are good. If it has a problem, the company will drag their feet as long as they can. Extremely unprofessional. I've since started going to other brands like cellar pro. I'm not getting burned by vinotemp again. Done with them.
