All Dometic wine refrigerators are fitted in the factory with an effective front ventilation system. The warm air coming from the compressor is flowing directly to the front ventilation grill where it's released outside – a unqiue benefit for built-in use.
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 mold will form on the cork. If you want to store your wine for a longer period of time, be careful to provide an odorless environment and adequate ventilation. Gases and odors enter into the interior of a wine bottle through pores in the cork and can negatively impact the taste and bouquet of the wine. Dometic wine refrigerators 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 odor prevention and a water tank for maintaining a stable humidity level. Models lacking these features can be upgraded, if required.
It’s no coincidence that wines are almost always filled in tinted glass bottles: wines are extremely sensitive to light. UV rays significantly influence the ageing process of a wine. They lead to chemical reactions that result in a loss of aroma. Just a few weeks spent in a brightly lit room negatively impacts the taste as well as the bouquet of what was once a fine wine. Even more damaging than artificial light is direct sunlight, which also generates heat. This explains why all glass door wine refrigerators from Dometic are fitted with high-insulation, multi-layer special doors coated with a UV filter for maximum protection. To enhance the insulating effect, Argon gas is injected between the door's glass layers. Moreover, Dometic exclusively uses LED lights for its wine cabinets, because they generate the lowest possible level of heat.
It's rare for hotels, restaurants and private households to have the privilege of owning a traditional vaulted wine cellar. Fortunately, the climatic conditions can be recreated with the help of advanced technology. Dometic wine refrigerators are using a special Heat and Cool function to quickly achieve and reliably maintain the ideal storage temperature. Smart electronics adjust according to the target temperature and ambient air temperature by automatically warming or cooling the air.
As well as excellent wine storage, the Dometic C101G is an attractive addition to any restaurant or hotel bar. It has a classic design, with a 3-layer, stainless steel framed glass door and a white LED light extending over the entire cabinet height. It provides professional storage and ageing conditions for 101 Bordeaux bottles and convenient access with six wooden sliding shelves. Its well engineered heating and cooling technology ensures your chosen temperature is quickly achieved and reliably maintained. While an effective air circulation system, combined with a water tank, creates a perfect climate for your wine to unfold its full potential. Optional additions include: a presentation shelf, sliding shelf, serving drawer and label set.
