Wine fridges are a great way to safely store wine in your home. Wine storage needs special standards to protect your wines.
Installing a full size wine cellar s is expensive and most homes just don’t have enough room available so more and more people are checking out small wine fridges.
There are several important differences between a wine fridge from a standard kitchen fridge.
First is the temperature. Your regular fridge is designed to cool items quickly to a temperature of around 40F. Instead a wine fridge is designed to cool your wine more slowly to 53-57F.
A wine cooler maintains the higher humidity that helps keep the wine cork moist whereas regular refrigerators are designed to remove humidity to better store perishables.
A wine fridge will also be devoid of the pungent smells and odors (think onions or leftovers) that could ruin the flavor of your wine.
Finally, wine fridges are designed to minimize the vibrations that can cause your wine to spoil. Just think about how many times the doors to your kitchen fridge are opened and closed each day.
Fridges for wines come in a variety of finishes that can easily be matched to your other kitchen appliances.
What Size Do You Need
Consider how many bottles of wine that you might want to store then double it. Once you start storing your wine, your collection will likely grow as you find favorites.
You can find countertop units that hold just a few bottles or larger freestanding units that can hold hundreds of bottles.
Just like there is a wide range of sizes available there are also a wide range of prices.
Consider the amount of wine and it’s value when choosing what kind of wine fridge to purchase. Get ideas on what you should be looking for at [http://www.wine.bcurrent.info]
