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
Le Cache Contemporary Wine Rack
by Michael -
Great wine rack. This is a piece of furniture that I have in my dining room. Holds 286 bottles of wine. Keeps wine properly chills and doesn't make a lot of noise.
Beautiful Furniture, Poor Delivery
by Melissa H
Beautiful, well-built piece of furniture. Delivery service was not as described though.
Tough to Beat
by John L
Tough to beat great quality, quiet operation and superior customer service.
Great Piece of Furniture
by Vince H
The Le Cache wine cooler we purchased is beautiful and works great. It's very high quality from the cooling system to the doors and the racks. I would recommend these products to anyone that loves wine and wants to store it in an ideal enviornment that's also a great piece of furniture.
Disappointed with the Carpet Board
by Nicholas I.
The gentlemen who delivered the unit were professional. I am disappointed with the $40 carpet board I purchased from you that was
placed under my unit. The unit was place on the board and then pushed against the wall. However, the unit was not plugged in. I had to move the unit, take out the plug/wire, replace the styrofoam and then, with my two sons, replace the unit on the board and place it against the wall plugged in. This would have been impossible if I was elderly or didn't have my sons home from college to help. The unit should have been on a
wider wood board, plugged in and running before the delivery men left our home.

Very pleased with my 2400 series cabinet and the service received upon purchase. I recommend this company and this product.
by Donna B.
The cooling system is somewhat noisy. Our unit is in our dining room and when we entertain I will likely shut off the unit. PS..... I do love the unit though, and it is beautiful!
by E. Lee
Purchased about one year ago. Will be purchasing another, but bigger model soon. Delivery was perfect. The fit, finish and quality of the unit is very good. Great product and great service translates to great value. Compared to other manufacturers, Le Cache has distinguished its products. Highly recommended.

Greatly appreciated the personal attention
by Paul T.
Greatly appreciated the personal attention from the owner... We felt very confident with our decision.
Best of all brands
by Don T.
Racking size is the best of all brands looked at. It enables even the largest bottles to be stored without any hassle. The open ends of the racking also make removing bottles very easy.
Magnificent piece of furniture!

A beautiful piece of furniture that is also a great wine chiller. Thanks for the awesome craftsmanship.
by Ken F.
Wonderful in all aspects.
by Michael G.
As the third compressor in as many years started to fail in my existing wine cabinet manufactured by someone other than Le Cache, it was time for me to begin a search for a replacement. After extensive research comparing all price points it became apparent Le Cache offered one of the best price to value relationships. In addition they were one of few who even offered an upgraded compressor. After speaking directly with Le Cache and having all of my questions answered I proceeded with the order. Even though the lead time for my model 2400 cabinet was 2-3 weeks due to high demand, Le Cache expedited my order so as not to risk damage to my existing collection. Order entry was simple and the tracking links worked perfectly and the delivery and setup went without any problems as well. In this day and age where customer service is virtually non-existent, Le Cache hit all the notes and I would highly recommend both the product and the staff to any individual in the market for a wine storage unit.
