You're going to have to post a lot more info that you have. Is the problem that the thermostat only goes down to 46? Or that, with the thermostat closed, it will only go to 46? Is it a compressor based or a thermoelectric based fridge? etc. etc. etc.

Check this thread:

I found a set screw for the thermostat on my mini-fridge and can adjust the temperature range to some degree. Maybe you can find something similar on your wine fridge.
