Everything You Need to Know Before Buying a Wine Cooler or Wine Bucket

Anyone who enjoys drinking white or sparkling wine will understand the importance of keeping it chilled and ready to drink. There’s nothing worse than pouring yourself a glass of crisp Riesling, only to realise that it’s the same temperature as your room! To ensure your wine, beers and other beverages remain chilled and maintain the integrity of their flavours at a social event, consider keeping them in a wine cooler or wine bucket.

Why A Wine Cooler?

If you’re bringing a bottle (or two!) of wine to a party or a picnic, consider bringing it in a wine cooler bucket. This will ensure that your wine will arrive chilled and ready to drink. You also don’t know if they’ll be room in your host’s fridge or esky, so it’s best to be prepared! Wine coolers and wine buckets are a must have for wine lovers; here are a few reasons why they’re a must-have for parties:

Wine Cooler 1

Convenience And Effectiveness

A wine cooler makes carrying your wine and keeping it cool easy. It’s also a great way to keep your bottles close by when you’re out and about. Larger wine buckets can declutter your dinner table by holding many bottles in one place, leaving the table looking neat and tidy.


Wine coolers will control a bottle’s humidity and temperature, preserving the wine's quality and making it much more delicious to drink!


Wine coolers are aesthetically appealing and can improve the appearance of your kitchen and entertaining space. A dazzling stainless steel wine cooler can be placed in a central location to make a statement, and to also let your guests know where to top-up their glass!

Hammered Wine Coolers

Looking for a wine cooler that’s more elevated than plain stainless steel? Consider a hammered wine cooler to add an element of opulence to your next social occasion.

Acrylic Wine Coolers

Acrylic wine coolers are fantastic if you’re looking for a lightweight and inexpensive wine cooler to keep your beverages cold. Made from thick acrylic, these wine coolers also have insulation properties to keep your drinks chilled. Simply add ice to get the party started! What’s more, acrylic wine coolers from Wheel&Barrow are durable, and stain and odour resistant.

Wine cooler buckets can replicate the functionality of refrigerated wine coolers for social events. They keep your wines and other beverages fresh and chilled whilst naturally saving energy.

Ultimately, the wine cooler you settle on is determined by your needs, drinking habits, and preferences. Before you buy, consider how many times you’ll actually be using your cooler, and for how many people. It’s best to have one small and one large wine cooler bucket at home, so you don't find yourself in a position when the need arises for both.
