Store Your Wine Collection at the Optimal Temperature with a Wine Cooler

Wine is a beverage that many people reserve for very special occasions. Depending on the type of wine that someone chooses to invest in, it may require certain storage conditions. It is important to keep wine in a cool place that doesn’t get too cold. Whatever storage method you use, it should be steady and able to hold the wine on its side. It also helps to keep wine out of direct sunlight, which is why many people choose to store the wine in their basements or cellars. Wine refrigerators are a great way to store wine in just about any room of your home.

Wine coolers are refrigerators for your wine. Some benefits to investing in this type of beverage fridge is that they allow for control over the storage temperature of your bottles, they store the bottles on their sides, and they can be either free-standing or built into your countertop, such as in your kitchen.

Wine should ideally be stored at a temperature that falls between 45 and 65 degrees Fahrenheit, 55 degrees being the most ideal. Storing the wine at higher temperatures can affect the flavor. When you are unsure if you can keep the temperature of your storage area in the right range, our wine refrigerators can help ensure your wine stays as cool as it should.

Storing bottles on their side originally had to do with how they were sealed: with the cork. Wine bottles that are set on their side help to push the liquid against the cork, keeping it moist and in place. Although not all wines are sealed with corks these days, storing them on their sides can still save a lot of space. Some of our coolers may have shelves that you can extend out to select the exact wine that you want.

You can choose between free standing coolers and refrigerators that can be incorporated into your living space. Free standing units allow you to put it exactly where you want it and move it when necessary. Built-in units give you a permanent place to store your wine right where you need it. The choice is yours.

When you are choosing to store wine, certain conditions must be met. This is precisely why some people might opt to only purchase wine on occasion. With our wine coolers, you can have your own stockpile of special occasion wine right in your own home. You can choose to have a unit built in to your home, or purchase a free standing unit exactly where you want. If you are a real connoisseur of fine wines, then it makes sense to invest in your own refrigerator for your home.
