Wine climate units: Wine storage as fine wine deserve
Wine is one of the few living foods and beverages that requires a maturation and storage process to develop fully. Wines age differently due to their different conditions. If you consider a few factors, you can significantly increase the enjoyment of wine. Because one thing is clear, properly stored wines last longer and mature better.
To guarantee the best storage for your wine, two components are important: the right angle of inclination of bottles and the combination of the optimal temperature and the optimal humidity.
The optimal temperature
Too high or too low temperatures, and above all temperature fluctuations, affect the fine wines and they become inedible. Basically: Wines feel most comfortable at a storage temperature of 12-15 ° C. This applies to both red and white wines.
If the temperature is too low, the biological and chemical reactions take place more slowly, which delays the ripening process and when the tartaric acid fails, crystals are formed on the bottom of the bottle.
Temperatures above 15 ° C lead to the volatilization of part of the carbon dioxide and the aromas in the wine. The aging process of the wine takes place faster. An oxidative note arises in the taste and the drinking pleasure is impaired.
Optimal storage temperature 12 - 15° C
The optimal humidity
If the wines are to be stored for several years, the wine room should have a humidity of 50 to 65%.
What happens if the humidity is too high? Labels peel off, wooden boxes go moldy and mold can attack the cork and make the wine inedible. If the humidity is below 40% corks can dry out and become leaky. Air and thus oxygen penetrate the bottle. The wine oxidizes, turns golden brown and takes on the famous sherry or firn tone and finally "breaks".
Optimal humidity 50 - 65 %

Completely self-contained, ducted systems are among the most versatile cooling systems on the market. Their design allows for easy installation and maintenance in both commercial and residential settings while providing optimal temperature and humidity control. Also available as split units.
Completely independent split systems, which are among the most versatile cooling systems on the market The design allows easy installation and maintenance in both commercial and residential environments and provides optimum temperature and humidity control. The outdoor unit is installed in the garage or outdoors and is connected to the indoor unit via a cooling pipe. The indoor unit is installed in the wine cellar.
High-Ambient Option Wine Guardian freestanding humidifier can be used with any wine cellar air conditioning system, while the integrated version can only be mounted to a Wine Guardian system. Both types are designed to increase humidity levels in commercial or residential wine cellars.
Controls and sensors
Wine Guardian combination termostat/humidistat and monitor controls the Wine Guardian placed inside or outside the wine room with the use of a remote sensor. Sense temperature and humidity up to three remote locations within the wine cellar. Ideal for large rooms, multiple rooms being controlled by one Wine Guardian unit, or averaging across high, medium, and low cellar locations.
