Key insights to a winefridge in your kitchen

May we show you the winecellar?

 

You don’t need a basement to keep an exclusive winecellar ..

Of course you are familiar with that wonderful experience when the first sip of wine turns into smooth velvet on your pallet. But that wine experience does not have to be exclusive to restaurant visits. 

 - just let a wine fridge be your sommelier

'Wine fridge' or 'winecooler' is perhaps a little misleading because we are talking so much more than cooling: It is a dedicated wine cabinet with advanced climate and protection features, and they are widely used by high profile restaurants - perhaps in bigger sizes.  Generally there are 3 main reasons for choosing a to have winefridge, and they work just as well in your kitchen as in a restaurant:

  1. For keeping wines ready (at their ideal serving temperature)
  2. For storing wines optimally (air condition, protection)
  3. For organising and presenting the wine 

If you are thinking of buying a wine fridge, or unsure which type to choose, this basic guide is for you.  We will guide into to the short term benefits, the long term benefits, the benefits in your kitchen project and how to take the next step.

A wine cooler - and you are already a sommelier

Of course we are exagerating your wine expertise - but in the sociable kitchen, it is very practical that a perfect bottle of wine is right there, not too cold, not too warm, but climatised and in balance ready to be uncorked ... as we speak. Maybe your guest will have a suggestion or pick through the glass front? In all cases every aspect of your dinner is shareable as kitchen life is sociable and shareable

On top of that it will control the quality of the air in terms of humidity and purity. You can even find more advanced features in the specific products in our wine cooler selection
