Vinotemp has been building premium wine cabinets for over 20 years. Since 1985, they have sold approximately 250,000 wine cellars in the U.S. and overseas. Francis Ravel was the innovator and creator of Vinotemp and 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.
