Can anyone recommend a good fridge/freezer to convert to a cellar?

    I have finally outgrown my mini-fridge and I am want to convert an upright fridge or freezer into a cellar. I am planning on using a Johnson Controls Digital Thermostat Control Unit.

    I went to the local appliance store and found a few upright freezers, but they do not have adjustable shelves and fitting bottles in properly would be a challenge. Anyone have any freezers or fridges to recommend that will fit 25.4oz bottles. Pictures would be awesome too if possible.

    Thanks!

    P.S. The freezer is going in the garage which gets very warm in the summer. A freezer would probably work better.
