One of the most important features in wine preservation is storage temperature. According to Wine Spectator magazine, a source that also recommends professional-grade storage for your wines at home, keeping wines cool, but not too cool is the top priority.
“Heat is enemy number one for wine. Temperatures higher than 70° F will age a wine more quickly than is usually desirable. And if it gets much hotter, your wine may get “cooked,” resulting in flat aromas and flavors. The ideal temperature range is between 45° F and 65° F (and 55° F is often cited as close to perfect).”
Storing wine in the refrigerator may be too cool for your wines as most fridges are less than 45 degrees. Plus, the dry air could dry the cork. Consistent temperature for wine storage is the most-friendly environment for your vino. Also, reducing the amount of sunlight can protect your wine from premature aging.
Every detail was considered when designing this product, such that once again the brand has earned another AD Great Design Award for the wine sommelier, making it a leader in the space.
