So if you want to preserve your wine for a long time the best place to store them is in a wine fridge.

Temperature Required to Store Wine
The optimum temperature required to store white or red wine is 12-18o C. The red wine must be kept outside for some time in order to enhance its taste while the white wine must be served immediately.

Capacity of A Wine Storage

Wine Fridge Cabinets come in different sizes and capacities. It is completely dependent on the user to pick the right one. Small ones can accommodate 20 bottles maximum while the large ones can accommodate more than 100 bottles. If you are storing the wine bottles as an investment then it is better for you to take more capacity cabinets which will help you store more bottles. There are some manufacturers that provides an customized option for such cabinets.

If you are opting to showcase your wine cabinet then go for outdoor wine fridge cabinet only as it is designed to maintain the cooling by matching the outdoor temperature. If you want the cabinet to be placed inside your house then normal cabinet will do.

  • Digital temperature control
  • Mechanical temperature control

Insulation of the Door

Most of the wine fridge cabinets come with glass doors which can be used to showcase your wine collection to your guests. But these glass doors are not good at preventing the warm air from getting into the cabinet, so go for tempered, double pane glass doors. It is recommended to go for tinted glass doors which prevent the UV rays from entering the fridge.

The opening of the door is also an important feature and you must decide the side which is comfortable for you to open the door.
