Plan and build a wine cellar correctly

Wine is one of the few living foodstuffs and luxury products that requires a maturing and storage process to fully develop. Wines age differently due to different conditions. If you pay attention to a few factors, you can significantly increase your enjoyment of wine. 

Because one thing is clear, properly stored wines last longer and mature better. To guarantee the best storage for your wine, two components are important, among others: the correct angle of inclination of the bottles and the combination of the optimal storage temperature and humidity.

The optimal storage temperature

Temperatures that are too high or too low and, above all,
temperature fluctuations affect the noble drops and they become undrinkable.

As a general rule, wines feel most comfortable at 12 – 15°C. This applies to both red and white wines.

If the temperature is too low, the biological and chemical reactions take place more slowly, which delays the ripening process and the loss of wine acid causes crystals to form at the bottom of the bottle, the so-called wine deposit.

Excessively high temperatures above 15°C lead to the volatilisation of part of the carbonic acid bound in the wine together with the aromatic substances.

The ageing process of the wine then takes place more quickly. An oxidative note in the taste develops and the drinking pleasure is affected.

Optimal storage temperature 12 – 15° C.

The optimal humidity

If the wines are to be stored for several years, the wine room should have a humidity of 50 – 65 %.

If the humidity is too high, the labels of the bottles peel off, wooden crates become mouldy and mould can attack the cork, making the wine undrinkable.

If the humidity is too low, below 40%, corks can dry out and leak.

Air and thus oxygen penetrate the bottle.

The wine oxidises, turns golden brown and acquires the famous sherry or firn tone and finally “breaks”.

Optimum humidity 50 – 65 %.

Integrated

Integrated wine climate control units are available in different sizes for rooms up to a maximum of 25 m³. With a modern design, they fit perfectly with the unique style of today’s wine cellars. The installation does not require refrigeration specialists, the warm exhaust air on the condenser side must be discharged. MORE ABOUT…

These units are also available as split versions.

Compact & Ducted

Ducted, compact wine air conditioners are independent tubular systems that are among the most versatile cooling systems on the market. The design allows for easy installation and maintenance in both commercial and residential environments and provides optimal temperature and humidity control. The installation does not require refrigeration specialists, the warm exhaust air on the condenser side must be discharged. In addition, humidifiers can be integrated into the Wine Guardian units.

Split & Ducted

Ducted split wine air conditioners are among the most versatile cooling systems on the market. The design allows for easy installation and maintenance in both commercial and residential environments and provides optimal temperature and humidity control. The outdoor unit is installed in the plant room, garage or outdoors and connected to the indoor unit via a cooling line. The indoor unit is installed in the wine cellar or an adjoining room. Split units must be installed by refrigeration contractors. The cold supply air is fed into the wine room via piping and the exhaust air is extracted. In addition, humidifiers can be integrated into the Wine Guardian units. MORE ABOUT…

Split & Integrated

The integrated split wine air conditioners combine the advantages of split units with integrated units. The design allows for easy installation and maintenance in both commercial and residential environments and provides optimal temperature and humidity control. Split units must be installed by refrigeration contractors. The outdoor unit is installed in the plant room, garage or outside and connected to the indoor unit in the wine cellar via a refrigeration line. In addition, humidifiers can be connected to the Wine Guardian units. MORE ABOUT…
