Since 1985, we have sold over a million wine cellars in the U.S. and Designer Series Wine Coolers Francis Ravel, the innovator and creator of Vinotemp, was a man ahead of his time. He began his venture by selling and making his own wine. This is where he was first introduced to the idea of placing a cooling unit into a sealed wine cabinet. In the beginning, he had one factory making the wine cabinets and another making the cooling systems. Ravel then began manufacturing the wine cabinets himself. In the '90s, he decided to ameliorate the problems with the current wine cooling system. With better components, he created the Wine-Mate cooling unit; the only UL approved wine cooling system of the time. His daughter worked with him for 15 years and is now the President of Vinotemp International.
