A constant temperature prevails throughout the interior in these appliances. It can be set to between +5 °C and +20 °C as required. Wine storage cabinets are ideal for the long-term storage and maturing of wines. Depending on the set temperature, these appliances can however also store more ample stocks of wine at serving temperature. In the GrandCru and Vinothek series, Liebherr offers multi-temperature wine cabinets in different sizes and with different features. Constant storage temperatures are required to allow wines to mature to perfection.
The ideal temperature for maturing is the same for all wines, whether red or white, and lies between +10°C and +12°C. The precision electronic control system combined with state-of-the-art climate technology ensures that the set temperatures in the interior are continuously maintained, even when the ambient temperature is subject to severe fluctuations.
Even slight vibrations can disturb the wine maturing process and prevent the tannins from settling. Specially developed, exceptionally low vibration compressors in all the wine cabinets mean that the wine is optimally stored. Maintaining the proper humidity is an important aspect for the storage of wines.
In this way, corks remain supple and do not dry out. Wine should be stored in a horizontal position to keep the corks moist from the inside. With over 50 % air humidity, wine cabinets guarantee the perfect conditions. The air humidity can be controlled as required in the wine storage cabinets by pressing the ventilation button.
Wine bottles are in most cases tinted because UV light has a damaging effect on wine maturation. In this way, stocks of wine can be protected and simultaneously stylishly showcased.
