Most wine cooler refrigerator suppliers reference bottle capacity for wine coolers based on the amount of “standard” Bordeaux-size bottles that will fit into wine coolers. The truth to the matter is there is not an actual standard size bottle. As you may be aware, the larger and longer bottles are becoming a more popular selection in the US market. Bottles come in many shapes, sizes and styles; varying from thin and tall, short with wide shoulders, and wide, broad and tall. Should you store any of these non-Bordeaux size bottles with your collection, the capacity for storage may be lower than stated in their product description.
 
Here is a general guide from most wine cooler suppliers:
  • Half of your collection equals non “standard” Bordeaux bottles, you may reduce your capacity by around 25%.
  • Your collection consists mainly of the larger non “standard” Bordeaux bottles, you may reduce your capacity by 40%
Since wine collection varies, no collection will be the same. For more reading relating to the importance of wine bottle sizes click here: "They Come In All Shapes And Sizes: The Importance Of Wine Bottles"
