A wine cellar is a must for your wine tastings, but how to choose it correctly ?
The wine cellar is the essential element in wine tasting, since the serving temperature is one of the fundamentals … so it is important to be able to choose the right wine cellar.
There is a plethora of wine cellars on offer. The advent of new cooling techniques like Peltier (or thermoelectrical) could have made these once horribly expensive products more affordable.
However, a cold wine cellar said to be thermo-compressed (and therefore using a gas compressor, which can produce certain vibrations which are rather harmful for the aging of the bottles, will be fairer on respecting the chosen wine cellar temperature. Whatever the refrigeration technique, the temperature in wine cabinets is generally a regulation of 5 to 18 °C.
A double temperature and a reverse cold counter top wine cellar?
Note that the thermo-compressed models can offer reverse cold and be able to heat the bottles if the ambient temperature drops too low. There are also many models known as free-standing wine cellar, countertop wine cellar or built-in wine cellar depending on the use and location you are going to make of it.
The free-standing wine cellar is an attractive product for its compactness and ease of use – cellar from 2 to 8 bottles – by Peltier or Thermo compressed cold, single or double temperature.
