• Stainless models feature a stainless steel wrap and
sculpted stainless handles.
4 Product Features
• Wood overlay units feature the ability to match
cabinetry. Handles are not included with overlay units.
Échelon Wine Captain
Your U-Line Wine Captain is the industry’s only built-in
under the counter two drawer wine storage unit with
dual zone temperature control and up to 43 bottle (750
mL size) capacity. Your Wine Captain will accommodate
up to 24 bottles in the top drawer and up to 19 bottles in
the bottom drawer. The bottom drawer also includes a
wine caddy for elegant transportation and service of
three bottles of wine. The corks remain moist, which
keeps air from entering the bottles.
• Both drawers feature tinted thermal glass that protects
your wines from potentially harmful light rays while
providing a very fashionable appearance.
The Right Temperature for Wine
Features and specifications are subject to change without
notice.
Your Wine Captain is designed to provide a temperature
zone in each drawer, adjustable between 40 - 60°F, so the
specific storage requirements of your finest wines can be
satisfied.
NOTE: Product temperatures, not air temperatures, are
referenced above.
• Wine Captain models are not recommended for
outdoor use.
• This Wine Captain cannot be configured for a freestanding installation. It must be installed as a built-in,
under counter unit, and must be anchored to prevent
tipping using the originally provided anti-tip kit.
Features of Échelon Wine Captain
• An electronic control panel with digital display allows
you to display the actual temperature in each drawer,
and adjust the individual temperature setting to your
personal preference. The electronic control and digital
display provides an attractive appearance, and its
method of control provides precise temperatures for
storage of one or multiple types of wine.
• An interior light will illuminate automatically in each
drawer as it is opened, providing easy visual
identification of the wine. However, you can easily
select two other modes of operation:
a. Interior lights in both drawers can be illuminated
while the drawers are closed, providing an
attractive display of your wine collection.
b. A blackout/Sabbath mode (not Star K certified)
allows you to darken both interior lights and the
LED display, while maintaining complete
temperature control in both drawers.
• Automatic (cycle) defrost means maintenance-free
defrosting.
• Wine racks have a contoured maple front trim that
adds a fashionable appearance to Wine Captain. The
wood facing may be stained or replaced in its entirety
with other woods or manufactured products (such as
Corian® or Sandstone).
• Black vinyl wine racks blend with the wine bottles,
placing greater emphasis on the wines themselves. The
vinyl holds the wine bottles more effectively than a
chromed or painted finish.
• All units feature a vinyl clad steel cabinet that provides
a rich textured look, and resists scratching, peeling and
flaking.

tendency to reflect normal appliance operating noises.
Common refrigeration components, and a brief
description of the normal operating sounds they make,
are listed below. NOTE: Your product may not contain all
of the components listed.
• Compressor: The compressor makes a hum or pulsing
sound that may be heard when it operates.
ULIN_0243b_A
• Evaporator: Refrigerant flowing through an evaporator
may sound like boiling liquid.
• Condenser Fan: Air moving through a condenser may be
heard.
• Automatic Defrost/Drain Pan: Water may be heard
dripping or running into the drain pan when the unit is in
the defrost cycle.

Suggestions for Matching Food and
Wine
6 Wine Guide
Wine Selections Suggestions
Selecting the right wine for the right occasion can
sometimes be a seemingly awkward or difficult task for
the beginning wine enthusiast. We would therefore like
to present you with a few suggestions which may provide
a little more confidence and enjoyment when choosing
and serving your wines.
When selecting wines, keep an open mind and do not be
afraid to be adventurous. Do not view the subject of wine
so seriously it discourages you from learning and
discovering for fear of embarrassment if something is
incorrect. Wine is best viewed as a hobby and enjoyed.
When assembling your collection, try not to become
obsessed with “Vintages.” Although a chart can be a
useful tool, generalizations about a specific year have led
more than one collector to disappointment. In many
instances an “Off Year” will provide a better value and
more drinking enjoyment.
The primary guideline to the subject of wine is your own
palate. Do not be afraid to make mistakes. Experiment,
discover, but most of all, enjoy yourself and your new
U-Line product.
Although there are no hard fast rules for matching wine
to food, observe some guidelines. Delicate dishes should
be accompanied by lighter more delicate wines. Fullflavored foods should be matched with fuller-bodied
wines.
As a general rule, one should aim to ascend in flavor and
quality of wines served.
Table 1
Serve a:
Before a:

Any step back in quality will be noticed. If a fine wine is
tasted prior to a lesser wine, many of the fine wine’s
subtle qualities may be missed.

Common Tasting Terms
Terminology
Description
Acidity
A critical element of wine that is responsible for preserving the wines freshness. Excess acidity results in an
overly tart and sour wine.
Balance
A desired trait where tannin, fruit and acidity are in total harmony. Wines with good balance tend to age
gracefully.
Body
The weight and presence of wine in the mouth provided by the alcohol and tannin level. Full-bodied wines
tend to have this strong concentration.
Bouquet
The blending of a wine's aroma within the bottle over a period of time, caused by volatile acidity.
Complex
A subjective term often used in tasting. A wine is said to be complex if it offers a variety of flavors and scents
that continue to evolve as it develops.
Flabby
A wine that lacks structure, or is heavy to the taste, lacks acidity.
Full-Bodied
Wine high in alcohol and extract, generally speaking, fills the mouth, powerful.
Lean
Generally describes wines that are slim, lacking of generosity or thin.
Oaky
A desirable flavor imparted to wine if done in moderation. Most wines are aged in oak barrels one to three
years, thereby receiving this toasty oak characteristic. However, if a weak wine is left in contact too long with
an oak barrel it will tend to be overpowered with an oaky taste.
Tannin
Tannins are extracted from the grape skins and stems and are necessary for a well-balanced red wine. Tannins
are easily identified in wine tasting as the drying sensation over the gums. Tannins generally fade as a wine
ages.

7 Cleaning and Maintenance
General Cleaning
Exterior Cleaning (As Required)
• Stainless steel surfaces and components can discolor
when exposed to chlorine gas, pool chemicals, salt
water or cleaners with bleach.
• Keep your stainless steel unit looking new by cleaning
with a good quality all-in-one stainless steel cleaner/
polish on a monthly basis. For best results use Claire®
Stainless Steel Polish and Cleaner, which can be
purchased from U-Line Corporation (P/N 173348).
Comparable products are acceptable. Frequent
cleaning will remove surface contamination that could
lead to rust. Some installations may require cleaning
on a weekly basis.
• Do not clean with steel wool pads.
• Do not use cleaners that are not specifically
intended for stainless steel on stainless steel
surfaces (this includes glass, tile and counter
cleaners).
• If any surface discoloring or rusting appears, clean it
quickly with Bon-Ami® or Barkeepers Friend Cleanser®
and a non-abrasive cloth. Always clean in the direction
of the grain. Always finish this process with Claire
Stainless Steel Polish and Cleaner or comparable
product to prevent further problems.
• Using abrasive pads such as Scotchbrite™ will
cause the graining in the stainless steel to
become blurred.
• Rust that is not cleaned up promptly can penetrate into
the surface of the stainless steel and complete removal
of the rust may not be possible.
Maintenance
Proper maintenance of your U-Line product will ensure
efficiency, top performance and long life. The
maintenance intervals listed are based on normal
conditions. You may want to shorten the intervals if you
have pets or other special considerations.
Defrosting
Automatic (Cycle) Defrost Models
Automatic defrost models do not produce frost in normal
operating conditions. However, a frost pattern may be
noticed on the interior walls if the unit is repeatedly
opened in a high heat or high humidity location. If this
frost pattern does not clear within 24 hours, your unit will
require manual defrosting.
WARNING
DO NOT use any type of electrical heating device,
ice pick, knife or other sharp instrument to
defrost; this could damage the inner lining or
refrigeration system and void the warranty.
IMPORTANT
The drain pan was not designed to capture the
water created when manually defrosting. To
prevent water from overflowing the drain pan,
place towels or other absorbent materials over the
interior drain trough, under the evaporators
(Figure 11, 1), before defrosting.
1
Interior Cleaning (As Required)
• Disconnect power to the unit. Clean the interior and all
removed components using a mild non-abrasive
detergent and warm water solution applied with a soft
sponge or non-abrasive cloth. Rinse the interior using a
soft sponge and clean water.
• Do not use any solvent-based or abrasive
cleaners. These types of cleaners may transmit
taste to the interior products and damage or
discolor the interior.

ULIN_016357_30179.fm Page 14 Thursday, February 1, 2007 1:24 PM
To defrost:
4. Clean the condenser coil (Figure 12, 2) using a soft
brush with a “combing” action or vacuum cleaner. Do
not touch the condenser coil.
1. Turn unit off.
2. Remove all products from the interior and open the
drawer(s) (2" (5 cm) minimum).
3. Allow the frost to completely melt naturally. Clean the
interior and all removed components using a mild nonabrasive detergent and warm water solution applied
with a soft sponge or non-abrasive cloth. NOTE: DO
NOT use any solvent-based or abrasive cleaners. They
will discolor or damage the interior.
5. Position the grille to align the mounting screws with
the holes in the cabinet.
6. Secure, but do not over-tighten both grille screws.
7. Reconnect power to the unit.
Leveling
4. Dampen a soft sponge or non-abrasive cloth in clean
water and wipe down the cabinet interior and removed
components to remove any detergent residue. Rinse the
sponge or cloth in clean water and repeat as necessary
until the cabinet and components are clean.
5. When the interior is dry, turn unit back on.
Condenser Cleaning
Interval - Every Three Months
To maintain operational efficiency, keep the front grille
free of dust and lint and clean the condenser every three
months. Depending on environmental conditions, more
or less frequent cleaning may be necessary.
WARNING
Check Level

Figure 27
Wood Trim Finishing
The U-Line Wine Captain® is equipped with woodtrimmed wine racks that are coated at the factory with a
clear vinyl sealer, which will adequately protect the wood
in normal usage. A final finish coat was not applied so
that the wood trim could be stained to match décor. The
trim on the racks may be coated with a final finish or
stained.
WARNING
To prevent permanent damage to the inner liner
of your unit, the wood trim MUST be removed
from the unit for staining and/or finishing. Allow
stain/finish to dry thoroughly (at least 24 hours
per coat) in accordance with the product
manufacturer’s instructions prior to
reinstallation. Failure to do so may cause the
inner liner of the unit to have a permanent odor,
which is not covered by the warranty.
2. Remove the two screws (Figure 27, 1), securing trim
to wine rack assembly (Figure 27, 2).
NOTE: Your model will contain an electronic display panel
(Figure 27, 3) in the middle level trim piece. After
removing the trim screws, and gently pulling the trim
from its location, a wiring harness connector
(Figure 27, 4) will become visible. Unplug the connector.
3. Remove the two screws, securing the electronic control
to the wood trim. Carefully rotate the wood trim so the
electronic control slides out of the wood, and place the
electronic control aside in a safe location.
NOTE: The electronic control and glass front are NOT
connected. Be careful when removing the control
not to drop the glass.

1
If staining the trim is desired, it must be done before the
application of any type of final finish. Review the
following staining/final finish and final finish-only
guidelines when staining/ and or sealing the wood to
ensure proper adhesion and durability of the finish.

NOTE: Glass in door is tinted. Stain may look darker
when door is closed.

NOTE: Your model will contain an electronic display
panel (Figure 28, 3) in the wine rack attached to the
bottom drawer. After removing the trim screws,
and gently lifting the trim from its location, a
wiring harness connector will become visible.
Unplug the connector. DO NOT remove drawer from
unit.
5. Remove the two screws securing the electronic control
to the wood trim. Carefully rotate the wood trim so the
electronic control slides out of the wood and place
electronic control aside in a safe location.
NOTE: the electronic control and glass front are NOT
connected. Be careful when removing control not to
drop the glass.
6. Remove the remaining wood fronts from the additional
racks by extending racks out as far as possible and then
removing the three screws that attach the wood to the
racks.
Final finish-only application:
1. Follow steps 1 through 6, then continue with step 2 in
this section.
2. Lightly scruff sand the wood trim with 280 or finer grit
sandpaper.
3. Remove sanding dust with a clean, dry cloth.
4. The factory-applied seal is compatible with virtually all
finishes. A low odor, water clean up, quick-drying finish
such as Minwax® Polycrylic® Protective Finish is
recommended (Minwax® Polycrylic® is an ultra fastdrying water-based finish). Apply a thin coat of a clear,
protective finish, following the container label
directions.
5. Lightly sand and reapply if desired.
6. Allow the final coat to dry for 24 hours before
reinstalling the display to bottom drawer trim and
remaining trim to the cabinet interior components.
IMPORTANT
DO NOT apply stain/final finish to the wood trim
with the electronic display attached to the wood.
Damage may occur to the electronic control which
is not covered by the warranty.
IMPORTANT
DO NOT use oil-based stains on wood trim. Vapors
from oil-based stains will permanently penetrate
the liner and will not dissipate over time.
7. Apply Minwax® Water-Based Wood Stain to wood with
a synthetic bristle brush or a foam applicator. Allow
stain to penetrate approximately three minutes. Before
the stain is dry, take a stain dampened rag and remove
any excess stain remaining. Wipe in the direction of the
grain with medium pressure to achieve the desired stain
color.
8. After two hours, repeat step 2. This will even out the
color of the wood.
9. Allow stain to dry for a minimum of three hours before
applying the final finish.
10. If desired, sand the wood with very fine sandpaper to
smooth the surface after the staining process.
11. Remove all dust from the wood, and apply one coat of
Minwax® Polycrylic® Protective Finish using a synthetic
bristle brush to the wood. This finish should be applied
in a thin coat following the direction of the grain.
Apply the finish to the back and sides of the wood first,
and allow it to dry for two hours. Apply the finish to the
front side of the wood next, and allow it to dry for two
hours. Sand with very fine 220 grit sandpaper. Apply
two addition coats of the finish in the same manner, but
do not sand the trim after the final third coat is applied.
12. Allow the final coat to dry for 24 hours before
reinstalling the trim to the cabinet interior components.
