When choosing a wine cooler, it is smart to first determine how big it should be. How much space do you have in the house and how many bottles do you want to store? You can also look at the appearance: which climate cabinet best suits your interior in terms of material, color and appearance? Would you like a wine fridge with mood lighting on the inside?
You know how it goes when you have friends over. You do your best to put a nice meal on the table and get a glass of wine at the supermarket or liquor store at the last minute. Two bottles in your Kipling backpack and go cycling.
DO YOU WANT TO BUILD THE WINE CLIMATE CUPBOARD?
It is also important to consider in advance whether you want to build in the refrigerator, for example in the kitchen. You can’t just build in any wine cooler. Each product indicates whether it is suitable for installation.
Whether a climate chamber is suitable for installation depends on the cooling technology. Thermoelectric cooling technology, for example, is not suitable for this. The BODEGA43-40 is the ideal dual-zone wine cooler and suitable for any kitchen.
SOMETIMES YOU NEED TO CHILL RED WINE EVEN
Once at home the bottles are on the counter for a while and then just hope that by the time the cork or screw cap comes off, they are up to temperature. Often people think that a red wine should be brought to room temperature and a white wine should be chilled in the refrigerator. If you know that the ideal temperature for red wine should absolutely not exceed eighteen degrees, you could be wrong with that room temperature. It is often much too high, with the result that you would actually have to cool a red wine to get an optimal taste. You just have to know. And when no one complains, you breathe a sigh of relief.
NO UNCERTAINTY ABOUT THE TEMPERATURE OF THE WINE
That could be easier. With a wine cooler you are assured of the right temperature at which you can serve a glass of wine. No stress and no feeling insecure about the wine to be served. Such a built-in wine cooler is increasingly finding a place in modern kitchens.
THE REFRIGERATION TECHNOLOGY OF WINE CLIMATE CABINETS
A wine cooler can use different types of cooling techniques. If you want to use the wine cabinet for a specific application, for example to build into your kitchen, it is important to know more about this. Three cooling techniques are used:
- Absorption cooling
- Thermoelectric (Peltier)
Some have multiple temperature zones that allow different wines, including white and red, as well as multiple red wines, to be brought to a different correct temperature.
WINE STORAGE IS LIKE A WINE CELLAR
A wine cabinet in the shape of a wine storage cabinet is something different. It actually works like a wine cellar. The wines have a stable environment and temperature at which they can mature well. You can leave the wine in the dark for years until you find that the bottle can be opened. Usually such a wine storage cabinet has a temperature of twelve degrees. Ideal for showing off a delicious wine.
