Newbies and experts use equipment to ensure their best bottles age well. Wine cabinets and cellars are used. Before shopping, consider these three questions.
- How long will you age your bottles?
- How many bottles will you store?
- Where will your new wine cabinet go?
How Long You Want to Age Your Wine Will Determine Your Wine Cabinet
First, decide how long you’ll mature the wine. A wine cooler can cool white wine bottles for serving. It’s not suggested to store wine in a cooler for more than a year because it cools it. Short-term or long-term storage for ageing can be tricky.
A cellar is a location for storing wine. This place can be an appliance, a cellar, or a room designed for ageing wine. Vinum’s ageing room is a wine cellar. This article focuses on appliance-type mobile wine cabinets.
Short-Term or Medium-Term Ageing
The mid-range cabinet will age well for a short to medium amount of time, about 5 years. Their compressor will make it possible to keep the humidity level stable and the temperature at the level they want to keep the bottles in the best condition. Most of the time, these appliances are less expensive than high-end wine rack cabinets. They can be helpful for people who are just getting into wine or who don’t want to age it for a long time.
In Terms of Long-Term Ageing
The high-end cabinet is made to last for a long time. The high-quality materials and insulation and the high-quality cooling technology make these cabinets the closest thing to a real wine wall cellar that you can get.
Some main things affect how well bottle ages and a high-end wine cabinet must meet these standards.
- LIGHT is blocked by models with a full door or windows that have been treated to block UV rays. The UV rays do hurt the wine’s ability to last.
- The temperature is kept stable between 10°C and 14°C, the best range for preserving things. Too much change in temperature too quickly, or big drops or jumps in temperature, can hurt the wine. But a small change (a few degrees) when the seasons change is normal and even a good thing.
- With a good compressor, you will notice less of the vibrations caused by the way it moves. Residual vibrations can be kept to a minimum with these slower, more balanced compressors that are often separated from the chest of the wine rack cabinet.
Choose a Wine Cabinet Based on How Many Bottles You Want to Keep in It
When you know the type of wine cabinet is best for your needs, all you have to do is choose how many bottles you want to store in your cabinet and if you wish to store them for a short or long time.
Wine cabinets come in a wide range of sizes and styles to fit your needs, whether you want to store wine quickly or for a long time. They can be made out of wood or stainless steel, come in different colours and have glass doors that are either solid or made up of panels.
If you want to store more than 200 bottles, you should probably think about building a wall wine rack in your home. This option is more interesting in terms of how much you have to spend, and it lets you keep the wine better.
Buy a wine cabinet that can keep up with your needs as they change. When figuring out the right size for your wine collection, choose a model that can hold both your bottles and any new bottles you buy.
