Which Cabinet Suits Me Best?
- For Proper Cellaring and Maturation:
If your goal is to store your wines under ideal cellaring conditions for gradual maturation, opt for any Single-Zone Vintec wine cabinet. Set the temperature to 12-14°C, the optimal range for medium to long-term storage of all wine types: reds, whites, rosés, and Champagne.
- Ideal Serving Temperatures:
To have your wines ready to serve at the perfect drinking temperatures, consider a Dual-Zone or Multi-Temp Vintec wine cabinet. Remember that most whites are best enjoyed at 6-8°C, and most reds shine at 16-18°C. With a Multi-Temp cabinet, you can fine-tune serving temperatures for various wine styles due to the temperature gradient within the cabinet.
- Cellaring Specific Wine Types:
Whether you’re cellaring white, red, or Champagne, the recommended temperature remains the same (12-14°C). Therefore, any Single-Zone cabinet within this range is suitable for storing white and/or red wines, while also maintaining humidity levels above 50% for cork preservation.
- Investment Wine Considerations:
If your wines are intended for investment purposes, potential buyers might request proof of proper cellaring conditions. Vintec Single-Zone wine cabinets set between 12-14°C fulfill the conditions for such evidence.
Usage – Cellaring & Serving Tips
Temperature for Cellaring
The recommended cellaring temperature falls between 12 and 14 degrees Celsius. What’s crucial is a constant temperature, regardless of the specific value within this range.
Maintain humidity above 50% in your wine cabinet to prevent cork drying and shrinking, as humidity below this threshold can lead to spoilage due to oxidation. All Vintec Single-Zone cabinets designed for 12-14°C settings uphold humidity levels above 50%.
Cellaring in Multi-Zone Cabinets
Yes, you can cellar wines in the middle section of a Multi-Zone cabinet, provided the wines are under screw cap closures. However, if any bottles have natural cork closures, avoid using Multi-Temp cabinets, as they can’t sustain adequate humidity for long-term cork integrity.
The necessity of Humidity Control
Indeed, humidity control is essential to prevent cork shrinkage and drying. Low humidity can lead to oxidation, causing off-odors, and even crumbling corks during removal.
Duration in Multi-Temp Cabinets
For wines stored in Multi-Temp cabinets, it’s recommended to rotate them every 6 months. This is because Multi-Temp cabinets aren’t optimized for proper cellaring temperature (12-14°C) and may lack the humidity levels required for extended cork preservation.
