    Why do wine coolers have glass doors if wine is to be stored in a cool dark place? Im trying to find somewhere cool to age after bottling that I can use in lieu of a cellar.

    All you have to do is hook it to an Inkbird type controller, it'll turn the power to the fridge on and off as it needs to cool to your set temps.
