We have a vacation condo and inherited an under counter wine/beverage fridge with dual zone. However, I was surprised to find that the shelves were not adjustable. As such some of my bottles don't fit. I would like to replace it with one that has dual zone and adjustable shelves but am having a very difficult time finding one. I have seen wine fridges with adjustable shelves or adjustable slats. Are they still made? Many thanks for any help.

Personally, I think "dual zone" is overrated. What is the difference in temperature between storing whites and reds? It's just a few degrees, right? And the zones are adjacent. It reminds me of the days when airplanes and restaurants had "smoking sections." You could be in the "non-smoking" area and be 10 feet from the smokers. Just my .02
You don't need to store white wines at drinking temperature for the purposes of aging them, so dual zone really isn't necessary if you can plan a bit, or keep an ice bucket close by if you can't.
I have 3 different win fridges always avoided the dual zone but always sought removable shelves of not removable and adjustable. Avoid pushing bottles against the back wall and avoid overfilling the fridge.
Again, great advice. Thank you!
Thank you very much for responding. As I thought about it, you’re both absolutely correct. However, I did solve the issue by getting a 24” dual temp, side by side, and a 15” for bevs. Might just set both dual at same temp for reds.
Again, thanks for your answers.
