Top 5 Most Important Features of a Wine Refrigerator

Wine coolers are a fantastic way to keep wine readily available at all times. Wine refrigerators come in all shapes and sizes so there are many options to choose from.

1. Multiple Temperature Zones
Whether you enjoy red, white, rose, or sparkling wines, they should be stored differently. Therefore some wine storage refrigerators have multiple zones so you can store different types of wine at optimal temperatures. Most wine refrigerators have one or two zones. Some of the tall wine refrigerators, also known as wine columns, have up to three zones.
2. UV Protected Glass
Better wine refrigerators have UV protected glass. Sunlight can cause the wine to age prematurely. It’s best to keep the UV rays away from your wine collection.
3. Vibration Reduction
Traditionally wine was stored in a cave, an area with consistent temperature and moisture. Unless there’s an earthquake, caves don’t vibrate. The challenge with refrigerators is they naturally vibrate. Vibration can negatively affect the tannins in your wine which will impact its composition and flavor.
4. Humidity Control
If you buy wine that is corked, you should definitely consider a wine refrigerator with humidity control. When you go to an upscale restaurant, did you ever wonder why the sommelier lets you inspect the bottle before the wine is poured? It’s so you can inspect the cork and make sure that the flavor of the wine is in-tact. Refrigerators with humidity control will prevent the cork from drying out which better preserves the flavor and composition of your wine.
5. Temperature Control
It's important to store wine at a consistent temperature. Drastic changes in temperature can cause the wine to age prematurely. If you’re investing in a wine preservation appliance, definitely look for a wine refrigerator with reliable temperature control.
