Ratings & Reviews
We needed a smaller cabinet than our 300 bottle cabinet for our new condo. The Transtherm Bastide Wine Cabinet fits the space we have for it perfectly. The wood shelves slide out easily and hold the number of bottles as advertised. The temperature controls are easy to use and maintain the temperature as set. We are pleased with the product.
They Cut Corners
The unit seems to perform well but it does not hold the # of bottles claimed. The pull out shelves are flimsy and limit the way you can store the bottles. when a shelf has 8 bottles (its max) it tips down when pulled out and does not slide back easily.
Ideal Wine Cabinet For Your Garage
by Randy Coleman
We bought the cabinet directly from the showroom a month ago, and it arrived a few days later. The delivery was smooth. After leveling the cabinet on our garage floor, we let it sit for 48 hrs. before powering it up and filling it. It has maintained temp perfectly. The fact that it comes fully shelved is a plus. We are very satisfied with lWA and Transtherm.
Transtherm is still the Best
This is my second Transtherm unit which replaced an 11 year old Castel that just wore out. Compared to the Castel, it has the same high quality, ease of set-up and use. It is a bit quieter.
The Bastide is really not just a "downgraded" Castel. It just doesn't have the white wine chilling area or the room temperature zone which I didn't use all that much, leaving more capacity for wine storage. Also, if you keep your Transtherm in a heated area, you don't need the warming feature included in the Castel. So if you don't need the extra features, go with the Bastide.
Great wine cabinet, delivery and set up
Friends have this brand and have had great success with it. I had another brand, not sold by IWA, that failed twice and I had to replace the cooling unit. The size, quality, pull-out shelving and quick set up were perfect. The unit is easy to operate and adjusts to the desired temperature very quickly. The service from IWAWINE was fast as my prior fridge failed and I needed a replacement quickly. They had great on-hand stock and pricing. I would definitely buy from them again and highly recommend both Transtherm and IWAWINE.
