The Benefits of Temperature Controlled Wine Storage

If you love wine as much as I do, you’ll appreciate how important proper storage is. For any wine collector, the day a beautiful bottle of red turns brown or tastes like paint thinner, is a sad day indeed. If you are not taking the effort of storing your wine properly, you could be throwing away the opportunity to enjoy something beautiful… Not to mention your investment.

There is a reason why people used to keep their wine in caves and cellars – they provide specific atmospheric conditions that help to preserve the wine. With no doubt, a climate-controlled environment is the best place where you can store your wine. However, setting up a cellar of your own at home is a costly exercise and more than likely you do not have the room. If you do not have a basement, what will you do?

With summer fast approaching, now maybe the time to invest in a Grand Cru Wine Fridge.

Here's a Basic Guide For Storing Wine:

  1. It needs to stay away from direct sunlight
  2. The ideal temperature for storing wine is around 14 degrees Celsius
  3. Humidity should be maintained between 50% - 75%
  4. Only small temperature variations should be allowed

Any Grand Cru Wine Fridge will provide you with a perfect and affordable and energy efficient temperature and humidity-controlled storage solution suitable for your home, office or garage.
