Wine keeps on maturing depending on
the surrounding conditions. The length
of time for which wine can be kept in
good condition will therefore depend
not only on the temperature but also on
the air quality.
The wine conditioning unit, with its
constant ideal temperature, increased
air humidity and odour-free
atmosphere, offers the perfect
conditions for storing your wine.
The wine conditioning unit also
provides an environment free of
vibrations so that the maturing process
of the wine is not disturbed.

Temperature

Wine can be stored at a temperature
between 6 °C and 18 °C. If you wish to
store red and white wines together,
select a temperature between 12 and
14 °C. Both red and white wines are
palatable at this temperature.
A storage temperature of over 22 °C
causes wine to mature too quickly,
which results in the aromas not
developing fully. In contrast, a storage
temperature of lower than 5 °C prevents
wine from maturing properly.
Heat causes wine to expand and cold
causes it to shrink. Temperature
fluctuations are stressful for wine and
result in the maturing process being
interrupted. It is therefore important to
ensure that temperature fluctuations are
kept to a minimum.

soak up oxygen and release aromas
first.
