All wine cabinets from Le Cache come with a choice of 3 energy-efficient CellarPro cooling units included in the price of the wine cabinet. The 3 CellarPro cooling units are dimensionally sized exactly alike, and therefore they are interchangeable. However, the 3 cooling units differ in terms of their BTUH cooling output and the level of noise that they produce. Each of the 3 cooling units is discussed below.
For more information about sizing the best cooling unit for your cabinet, refer to our Cooling Unit Buying Guide for Wine Cabinets.
The 1800QTL-ECX is our quietest cooling unit, and is designed exclusively for residential use in a temperature-controlled environment. The 1800QTL-ECX is appropriate for all credenzas, Model 1400 and Model 2400 wine cabinets. It also can be used in larger Model 3100, Model 3800 and Model 5200 wine cabinets, provided that the desired cellar temperature is closer to 60F than 55F.
This unit should not be used in ducted applications, or paired with our front duct hood.
Key Stats: 1065 BTUH at 55F, 41 dbA installed in a cabinet.
The 1800QT-ECX cooling unit is approximately 30% more powerful and 4 decibels louder than The 1800QTL-ECX cooling unit. It is designed for residential use in a temperature-controlled environment. The 1800QT-ECX easily can maintain 55F in our largest wine cabinets.
This unit can be used with our front duct hood.
Key Stats: 1380 BTUH at 55F, 45 dbA installed in a cabinet.
The 1800XT-ECX is approximately 5% more powerful and 3 decibels louder than The 1800QT-ECX cooling unit, because it uses more powerful fans. As a result, The 1800XT-ECX is ideally suited for garage environments (with temperatures ranging from 40F to 95F), commercial environments (where the cellar is frequently accessed) and installations with our front-duct hood..
Key Stats: 1456 BTUH at 55F, 48 dbA installed in a cabinet.
1800XTS-ECX cooling units, approximately 30% more powerful than 1800XT-ECX cooling units, also can be used inside Le Cache wine cabinets for an additional charge. Please call us at 707.794.8000 for more information and/or to order.

(1) We count the top of the racks as 1 row when counting rows in our racks.
(2) Every slot in the racks is 3 3/4" and sized to fit oversized Burgundy and most Champagne-size bottles.
(3) Bulk storage is located atop the racks (except for the first row atop the racks). Bulk storage capacity is based on Bordeaux-size bottles.
(4) Total capacity is the sum of racked plus bulk capacity, with double-deep storage in all cases except the Contemporary Credenza (which is single-deep). Usable capacity may be lower by 2-3 bottles when the first few cells under the cooling unit are left empty for proper air circulation.
Top intake will allow you to place your wine cabinet flush against the wall; however, in order to operate properly, a cabinet with top intake MUST have sufficient clearance ABOVE the cabinet. If sufficient clearance does not exist, rear intake should be selected, and 3-4 inches of clearance must be provided BEHIND the wine cabinet. Regardless, the sides of the cabinet always need to be open - in other words, placement in an enclosed space, alcove or closet will not work unless our front-vent hood is used. Click on our placement requirements tab for more information.
Does the unit really need a dedicated circuit?
A: Yes, our units require dedicated circuits. When we say "dedicated circuit", we mean that the circuit shouldn't have any items that require heavy draws of electricity - eg other appliances, vacuum cleaners, big-screen TVs, blow-dryers - on the same circuit as the cooling unit. Lighting, computers or other low-draw items shouldn't be a problem on the same circuit.
Do I need the condensate drain line?
A: You don't need the drain line because our wine cabinets are constructed to be airtight when the doors are closed, and the cooling unit has a drain pan to catch excess condensation, which is burned off as the cooling unit runs.
Why does the fan run without the compressor?
A: We've programmed our fans to stay "on" for 3 minutes after the compressor turns "off", and then every 15 minutes thereafter , to recirculate moisture inside the cabinet. This fan cycle is extremely energy efficient, and increases the humidity inside the cabinet.
Ratings & Reviews
Bought a Cellar
Love it, works great, thanks
by Neal E
I purchased a Le Cache Contemporary 1400 Wine Cellar a month and a half ago and I am very pleased with it so far. It is quiet, aesthetically pleasing, and a good value. I only have a couple of nits with it. First, the top is not finished like the rest of the cabinet (which is beautiful) is. I understand why, but my cellar is placed in a room (no other choice) with a high ceiling that is over looked by the stair case, and I see the top each time I go up or down the stairs. How much harder would it be to finish the top? Also, a little more detail could be helpful in the user's manual which was still satisfactory. Finally, I think loaded properly, it probably holds several less bottles than stated, but only by several and more than enough for my needs. I would also note that the delivery folks they used were professional and helpful. Overall I rate 4 and 1/2 stars.

Everything is working fine!!! Of course, I’m sure you hear that a lot. My frig is FULL and I have about 12+ cases in queue!!! I know, sales opportunity!!
My kitchen opens into a dinette and I have the unit placed just inside the footprint of the dinette so I can hear both the frig and the wine unit. They both have about the same noise levels. I have noted that there seems to be two noise levels for the wine unit. One seems to be just a fan running. And, the other is a step up in mechanical noise – perhaps the compressor comes on? And, then, when the compressor turns off, perhaps the fan continues to run to cool it off?? Fan noise is hardly noticeable but I do note the compressor. It’s not objectable. No issues with any sort of background noise that might keep me awake. All in all, I’m fully satisfied with the noise level.
Few pics attached of my Le Cache!!! Santé!!

The LeCache site automatically calculated a star rating based on our underlying category ratings. We would ultimately give the unit between 4 and 4.5 stars. The delivery experience, for which we gave a one star rating, likely reduced the overall rating to 3.5 stars.
by Bruce G.
We are pleased, overall, with our purchase. The cabinet styling and racking are quite nice. Thus far the cabinet seems to be operating as expected. Customer service is very responsive. The only negatives that we have observed have been the noise level, even with the sound hood, is somewhat higher than we had expected; the top of the cabinet is not finished and can be seen on units that do not have crown molding; and the delivery contractor did a horrible job. LeCache stands behind their products, and this was a major factor in our purchase decision.
by Richard H.
Great unit except for noise level. Excellent wood/finish quality. As a physicist I was able to design a low resistance, noise reduction add-on to the top of the cabinet. Otherwise it would have been too noisy to use. Similar modification by the manufacturer would be a welcome addition.
Our investment is protected
by James S.
I was stunned when I began loading our new Le Cache Model 1400 and found 135 bottles stored in cabinets and closets representing $10.000. Now our investment is protected and will appreciate.

We received the Le Cache wine cave last week -- it is absolutely beautiful!
Beautiful cherry cabinet
by Donald J.
This was our 3rd wine cooler. First one [different manufacturer] didn't have the right size racks. so we sent it back. Got a larger unit [different manufacturer] that had proper racks but it...was much larger than what we needed. So we spent more money but got a beautiful cherry cabinet from you with Universal racking!
Unit looks great
by Dave W.
Unit looks great, will start the bottle-filling process soon!
by Dana M.
Not only is the Le Cache wine cabinet beautiful, it is silent! It arrived in perfect condition and with the help of the easy-to-read Owner's Manual, we had it setup and filled with our favorite wine in no time. Thank you for adhering to such high-quality standards!
by James M.
We were so satisfied with our first Model 1400 wine cabinet that we purchased another one. The purchases were two years apart. This should tell people that we are very, very satisfied with our Le Cache wine cabinets.
by Frank N.
The wine cellar is great! It's beautiful and working well.
Never been more impressed
by Jason N.
I have never been more impressed than with the quality of the service provided by Le Cache.
by Larry M.
Keep the superb team of professionals you have. This is my second Le Cache. Need I say more?
by Frank G.
I was very impressed with the follow-up and amount of details provided on delivery and set-up. The unit meets or exceeds all of our expectations.
Exceeded my expectations
by Hugh R.
This wine cabinet has exceeded my expectations. It must be seen to be fully appreciated. Beautiful functionality.
