Why a wine cooler is indispensable for a wine lover
More and more wine lovers are choosing to have a wine climate cabinet installed. This is no wonder, as it is a handy device that keeps wine at the ideal temperature, making it taste better. Do you like different types of wine? Then that's no problem because there are wine climate cabinets with multiple temperature zones. This means that you can set the temperature per zone and thus you can keep red, rosé and white wine perfectly.
Moreover, a wine cooler not only ensures that you can always enjoy the perfect glass of wine. In fact, it is also an eye-catcher in your kitchen. A wine cabinet immediately gives the room a beautiful luxurious look. A nice extra!
Wine cabinet: something for everyone
Would you like to install a wine cabinet? Then you must first choose the appropriate wine cabinet. There are different types available so there is something for everyone. Below we go over the possibilities!
Kitchen built-in wine cooler
This type of wine climate cabinet can be completely built into a wall, furniture or niche. It ventilates from the back. The disadvantage is that it has a limited depth, which reduces its capacity. But it does look much sleeker than the other types of wine climate cabinets.
Bottom-mounted wine cooler
An under-mount wine climate cabinet is built under the kitchen worktop or a bar. It is fitted with a plinth so it ventilates well. You can choose to make the plinth visible or hide it behind a kitchen baseboard.
What should you pay attention to when buying a wine cabinet?
Have you made your choice from the different types of built-in wine climate cabinets? Then you're not there yet, because there are also a number of other things you need to consider when buying a wine cabinet!
How many wine bottles do you want to store?
The first step in finding the best wine climate cabinet is determining how many wine bottles you want to store in it. Of course, you also have to consider the available space. Small wine climate cabinets provide space for 7 to 35 bottles, medium ones for 30 to 100 bottles and large ones for 100 to 300 bottles. These are the possible sizes of wine cabinets:
Width: from 14 to 75 cm
Height: from 45 to 200 cm
Depth: from 51 to 71 cm
Wine climate cabinets with a width of 30, 45 or 60 cm are the most common. To give you an idea: a wine climate cabinet with a width of 30 cm can hold about 20 wine bottles, depending on the height, of course. Finding it difficult to make a choice? No problem, because you can always ask for advice from one of our specialists!
Check if you can have it built-in
Note that not every wine cabinet can be built in. This has to do with the type of refrigeration technology used. For example, a wine cabinet with thermoelectric cooling technology cannot be built in. So it is important to choose the right model.
What types of wine do you want to store in it?
Also think for a moment about what type of wine you mainly drink. Do you not only like red wine, but also enjoy an occasional glass of white or rosé wine? Then it is important to choose a wine cooler with multiple temperature zones. You need one temperature zone per type of wine.
Would you like convenient features?
Of course, a simple wine cooler will also just keep your wine at temperature. So there is no need to spend a lot of money for it. But if you want to make things easy for yourself, it is interesting to consider a more expensive model. After all, these usually come with some handy extras. Still in doubt? Then it's a good idea to check below to see exactly what extras are available!
Usually a security system for your climate-controlled cupboard is not necessary. But if you have one built into your business, it can come in handy. That way no one can just reach your collection of wines.
Some wine climate cabinets also have an alarm that goes off if the temperature in the cooler deviates too much from the set temperature. Or if the door is not closed properly.
A winter function is very useful because it keeps your wine at ideal temperature when it is very cold outside. In fact, when the ambient temperature drops, the winter function controls the activation of a slight electrical heating resistor. This keeps the temperature stable.
