Modern Wine Cellar Coolers

It was only a few years ago that if you hear the word wine
cooler the name Bartles and James came to mind. And if
someone was telling you about their wine collection you
pictured a massive underground vault. But the modern wine
cellar coolers are nothing like those of the past.

Only a few years ago a cellar would consist of rows and rows
of wine neatly organized and aged to maximum perfection.
It was easy to enjoy a good glass of wine when out for an
evening but virtually impossible to have that capacity within
the home. But then the modern wine counter cooler came
along. Today anyone can turn their kitchen into a wine
cellar with little effort.

Fine wines cost a lot and they are only worth the cost if you
have the proper place to store them. See wines are alive
and they are continuously changing depending on the
environment they are in. There are many things that affect
how a wine changes. Those include humidity, temperature,
ventilation, calm, and even the angle the bottle is stored at.
A quality wine cooler considers all of these elements.

Your wine should be stored horizontal in a stable
temperature at the lowest possible place that has no
vibration. You also need to make sure its away from any
strong odors.

The perfect temperature is between 50 and 55 degrees
with a 70% humidity level. A wine fridge can accomplish this
easily. A regular refrigerator isn't as effective because it is
just a little too cool plus temperatures fluctuate.

A wine cooler's temperature never changes which maintains
the wines flavor. These coolers are also designed so that
you can lay the bottle down so the wine is always in contact
with the cork.

An under the counter wine cooler can be built right into
your kitchen. This also gives extra protection to the wine
from natural lighting. There are a few common mistakes
that are made when shopping for a wine cooler. Make sure
you don't make these mistakes.

You need to stay away from the clear door coolers. There's
no question these look great because you can see all your
bottles of wine. But the light from the kitchen, especially
fluorescent lighting will actually ruin your wine over time.
There is actually a name for this "light struck." Buy a cooler
with the darkest door you can find.

Another common mistake is installing it near a heat source.
Your stove isn't your only heat source. Dishwasher and
refrigerators both throw heat and dishwashers also vibrate
which is bad for your wine. Try to install it where it is more

These coolers are commonly installed in the kitchen but of
course they don't have to be. You can install them in any
room that you wish as long as you stay away from any heat
or vibration.

The modern wine cellar coolers will let you serve perfect
wine to your guests anytime you feel like it. What a great
addition to your room!

Romantic Duet

The perfect pair for ripe full flavor. Start with our prized Marom Cabernet Sauvignon,we were able to obtain a limited amount of this late harvest Cabernet from Romania. The Cabernet grape lends the wine a more powerful finish to the wine. You roll the Marom Cabernet in your mouth for a length of time, you will feel a small explosion of complex tastes of fruit and light tannins. RRCCW703 Follow-up with the splendor of the Mosel Riesling Kabinett. The wines of the Mosel and its tributaries, the Saar and the Ruwer, are richly fragrant, pale in color, light-bodied with a lively, fruity acidity. The slaty soil imparts a distinctive taste to Mosel wines, ranging from fine fruity to earthy, or “flinty”. Often they have a hint of effervescence. This Kabinett wine is a good example of the Mosel style of wine. This wine is righly fragrant, racy, piquant, elegantly fruity and delicate. GWMKS701 Both are packaged in a colorful gift box featuring the contemporary art of Josef Werner. Your personal expression will top it off in a (free) hand written gift card. Now that is tasteful!
