This compact fridge is great for apartment living too. Another stylish but practical aspect to this wine cooler fridge, is the factory-installed lock. Curious teens lurking around the fridge will be disappointed with this feature, but you will have peace of mind that your wine collection is safe behind a secure lock system.
