Is zone are evenly divided for bottles? because normally our whites are much lesser than our reds.

The top is smaller than the bottom, but the bigger factor is the temp zone’s. Top Zone temp range is : 54° to 66°F Bottom Zone 46° to 66°F so depending on the wine  would determine what temp it should be chilled at

We are shippipng overseas and unable to ship more than 16oz. of fluid per shippment. What does the thermoelectric cooling entail and >16oz fluid?

From the makers websiter:  A thermoelectric wine cooler will contain what is referred to as a cooling node which is simply a ceramic tile that has electrical current passed through it. As the electrical current is passed through the cooling node the outside of the tile will heat up and the other side (the side facing into the cooler) will cool down. Typically, a thermoelectric wine cooler will contain small fans inside the unit which help to evenly distribute the cool temperatures being created by the node throughout the interior of the unit. Due to the lack of a compressor, thermoelectric coolers will produce fewer vibrations which in turn will equal fewer disturbances of the sediments within the wine bottles.<br>See also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermoelectric_cooling
