The Art of Installing Your Own Wine Cellar
If success and stability bring their own rewards in life, then wine is one of those highly favored rewards with which we treat ourselves. Whether indulged with a fine meal, or savored by itself at the end of a relaxing evening, whether marking a convivial occasion with friends and family, or an intimate time with a loved one, the joys of a glass of wine are one of the highpoints of the good life.
If you are one of the many Americans who have discovered the infinite pleasures of wine, then perhaps you have already become a collector of some of the thousands of varieties of wine available from around the world.
And perhaps you have also encountered the problem of how to store your collection of vintage wines.
Wine is a food product. It is both natural and perishable. It can be adversely affected by light, heat, and fluctuations in temperature and humidity. Under the wrong conditions, every type of wine can spoil. But, under the right conditions, wine will maintain its quality, and can actually improve in aroma, flavor and complexity as it matures.
So, why not preserve your valuable collection of wines?
A wine cellar may be the answer to your problem. More and more fine residential homes are having wine cellar cooling systems installed.
An actively cooled wine cellar, properly installed and maintained, will keep the temperature and humidity at the correct levels to protect and preserve your vintage collection. A consistently cool temperature of between 50 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit and a correct humidity level of between 50% and 70% is necessary at all times.
Wine cooling systems come in many sizes, depending upon the extent of your wine collection. A system can be installed in your basement – making it truly and literally a “wine cellar” – or in your garage.
Wine cooling systems can also come in a variety of styles, depending upon your taste and budget. They can be elegant and handcrafted affairs, or simple and unobtrusive appliances.
Whatever type of wine cooling system you ultimately decide upon, you will be able to rest assured that it is an investment in the good life.
