BrandsMart USA has the wine cooler for your home. With dual or triple zones from GE, KitchenAid, Frigidaire and Avanti, we have a wine cooler to fit your needs. Wine coolers or wine refrigerators, come in a variety of types. There are under counter wine coolers, special built-in wine coolers and some are dual and triple zone wine coolers for different storing temperatures.
Why is temperature important? Wine should be stored in a cool dark place. Optimally, regardless of variety, wine should be stored at a temperature around 52 to 59 degrees Fahrenheit. The lower the temperature, the slower the wine will develop complexity and bouquet. 52 to 59 degrees is also the preferred temperature range for drinking red wine. On the other hand most people prefer drinking white wine at a cooler 45 to 52 degrees. This is really the purpose of multiple zone wine coolers, to have a cool zone to chill down white wine before drinking.
Humidity is also important, and is the primary reason why wine should not be stored in a normal refrigerator. Normal refrigeration is too dry to store wine. The dry air allows the cork to shrink slightly, even if stored on its side, and allows oxygen to enter the bottle causing the wine to oxidize and spoil.
Light can also adversely affect your stored wine. Light can interact with the phenolic acid in wine causing the wine to spoil. So why have a glass door on the wine cooler? Wine Coolers have UV filtered glass on the doors because they are designed to help you find that special bottle you are looking for without having to stand there with the door open. Because temperature fluctuation is the most damaging environmental factor to wine. The UV protection should filter out most of the harmful effects of light, although it is still recommended that don’t place your wine cooler in the direct sunlight.
