Proper storage is vital to preserving the quality of wine. Maintaining ideal temperature and humidity works to properly chill your collection for years of enjoyment. The wine cellar/storage room protects against direct sunlight and should remain at a stable temperature within the range of 55 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
Cooler Installations for Wine Cellars
Even a daily temperature fluctuation of just 2 to 3°C (5°F) can result in damage. A rise in temperature causes the wine to expand as it warms, forcing the cork to move and allowing air to seep out. When the wine cools and contracts, oxygen is drawn into the bottle. Humidity is also a concern. Too high and there’s the risk of mold or mildew growth including damage to labels. Too low and the corks may dry out.
Breeze Air Conditioning provides for the specialized needs of wine storage rooms in the Coachella Valley. Conventional air conditioners are designed to cool quickly and can actually cause dried-out corks and oxidized wine. A proper wine cooling system, perfectly sized and installed for your storage space, operates for longer periods of time at higher coil temperatures to ensure consistent temperature and proper humidity levels.
