If we had to pick our favorite inventions, the refrigerator bar would have to be near the top of the list. But, sadly, we acknowledge that hard liquor isn't for everyone. We further realize that space-challenged dwellings present some difficult logistical issues for the wine lovers among us (Caroline McCarthy). Nor can everyone afford a wine vault, much less a cellar of the brick-and-mortar variety.
There is one possible alternative, however: the wine fridge from the U.K. department store John Lewis. This inspired appliance cools up to 39 bottles of your favorite fermented beverage (never red, of course) while still functioning as a standard fridge and freezer in its other compartments. The problem is its price--2,000 pounds, or more than $4,000, according to Coolest-Gadgets. Mind you, that's more than 2,000 bottles of "Two-Buck Chuck," excuding sales tax.
