Properly Storing Wine In Sub Zero Appliances

Many people love to enjoy a glass of wine here and there. But if you find yourself with more wine bottles than you know what to do with, you may want to invest in finding a place to store them. Having a wine cellar would be ideal, but not everyone has the space or money to build one. It’s also hard to find a room that will be the perfect temperature. Thankfully you have another option; Sub Zero appliances like wine storage units.

True, a bottle or two of wine can be store in other major kitchen appliances, like the refrigerator or freezer. A wine storage cooler is more for large collections. It’s also much easier to set and keep track of the temperature than in your refrigerator, in which you have other food to worry about as well. The temperature also fluctuates in a fridge because of the constant opening of the door. That’s the last place you want to keep your many bottles of wine.

When choosing wine storage, be aware that there is a difference between a wine cooler and other larger wine storage units. Wine coolers are smaller and tend to just keep the wine at a decent serving temperature. Storage units like sub zero appliances can also control humidity, which is what you want for long-term storage. Humidity is ideally 70 percent or higher for storage of any kind.

To correctly place your wine bottles into your sub zero appliance, the bottle should be laid on it’s side. This keeps the cork from drying out and possibly letting air into the wine. Keep like wine together. Some storage units have multiple zones with various humidity for different types of wine. This is a valuable investment if you are going to carry white, red and sparkling wine.

When storing long term, you’ll want your storage unit set to about 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Do realize though that wine stored in a refrigerated condition will not age.

The nice thing about storing them this way is that when you are ready to serve them, you can easily change the temperature to suit your needs depending on what kind of wine you are serving. Light red wines are perfect to serve at 55 degrees, rose and dry white wines between 46-57 degrees. Sparkling wine and champagne tastes best a little lower at 43-47 degrees.
