An ideal climate for fine wines
Quality wine storage needs a well-balanced, stable humidity level. Values between 60 and 85 percent are considered ideal. If humidity levels are significantly lower, moisture evaporates through the cork. The cork dries out, becomes permeable and can no longer protect the wine from oxygen penetration. If humidity levels are too high, there is a risk that mould will form on the cork. If you want to store your wine for a longer period of time, be careful to provide an odourless environment and adequate ventilation. Gases and odours enter into the interior of a wine bottle through pores in the cork and can negatively affect the taste and bouquet of the wine. Dometic wine fridges provide perfect climatic conditions for wine storage and ageing. The high-end wine cabinets in the Design Range come standard with an active carbon filter for odour prevention and a water tank for maintaining a stable humidity level. Models lacking these features can be upgraded, if required.
