Many people drink wine and like to house that wine in a properly temperature unit. Whether it be a full size wine cellar in somebody’s home, or a 15” under counter unit in their pantry, wine units have many characteristics which are important to the longevity of the bottle.
Wine Cellar Cooling Units
Today, I’d like to focus on the three different 24” single zone models that are under $2000.
The ULINE 24” 1000 Series Wine Captain Model is a superb unit. ULINE makes their units as one piece, meaning that the base and the top are the same piece which significantly cuts down on vibration. ULINE specializes in under counter refrigeration and wine.
Some of our favorite features include:
- Black vinyl coated racks prevent bottles from shifting back and forth and we you slide the racks in and out
- Rubber mounted compressor virtually eliminates any vibration, ultimately preserving your prized wine collection for a long time
- Digitally controlled temperature conveniently located on the upper face of the cabinet for easy access.
The Marvel 24” High Efficiency Single Zone Wine Cellar has made a name for itself for its rapid cooling system. This feature among others has driven Marvel’s reputation in a forward position.
Let’s explore some of the other characteristics of the Marvel Wine Cellar:
- Marvel’s Intuit™ Integrated Controls provide precise temperature management from 40°F to 65°F, and has been called the industry’s best temperature stability.
- The unit has a thermal efficient cabinet to optimize wine preservation and energy while at the same time maximizes space.
- Audible and visual alarms notify you when the door is left open to protect wine integrity
The Dacor Renaissance Single Zone Wine Cellar is probably most popular because of it’s Dynamic Climate™ Control System. This system delivers relative humidity throughout the cavity evenly so each bottle is preserved under the same conditions.
Some great features of the Dacor Renaissance Single Zone Wine Cellar include:
- Dual Panel UV protective glass shields your wine from harmful UV Rays
- Easy glide beech wood slide out racks easily glide in and out so you never have to reach into the unit to get your favorite bottle.
- Large Internal Capacity holds up to 46 (750ml) bottles at one time while displaying them under LED Lighting to provide a clear view of your collection.
Whether it is the bottle of wine you toasted your new bride 50 years ago at your wedding, or a $10 dollar bottle of wine you picked up on the way home to enjoy with friends, wine has many different traits that make it taste so good on your palette, and the manufacturers of these units know how important it is to maintain these traits, so let’s raise a glass and toast, “A bottle of Red, a bottle of White, just as long as it’s been protected from UV Light.”
