Here in Australia, the correct wine storage can be especially hard to achieve thanks to our humidity and heat, but Vintec wine cabinets are designed to replicate the optimal conditions of an underground cellar.
Keeping wine can be tricky, but with a Vintec wine cellar or cabinet, you can never go wrong.
Who are Vintec?
Started by two French wine-lovers, Vintec was founded with the goal of creating climate-controlled cabinets that allowed people to enjoy better, longer-lasting wine. Vintec provides tools, content, and a community so that bourgeoning and experienced wine enthusiasts alike can enjoy and care for their wine.
Wine cabinet vs wine fridge: What’s the Difference?
A wine cabinet is designed to deliver a climate-controlled solution to storing your wine. Often, wine fridges are too cold and dry to care well for your wine, however wine cabinets are designed to replicate th environment of underground cellars, giving you a better tasting wine.
Why you need a Wine Cabinet
Wine cabinet’s protect your fridge against elements that could disrupt it from aging at its best. Vintec uses the five pillars of wine storage to prevent this – Stable Temperature, Humidity, Light, Vibration Proof, and Quality Airflow.
1. Stable Temperature
Without proper storage, wine loses its vibrancy in both taste and colour, altering flavours and aging it, but Vintec wine cabinets are designed to preserve you wine by maintaining a consistent temperature. The insulated side panels and double glazed doors keeps your wine at its best.
To prevent dry, crumbly corks and oxidised wines, Vintec cabinets are designed with a self-regulating humidity feature and regulated air circulation that keeps your wines fresher for longer and prevents them oxidising
The amount of UV light that is on your wine bottle plays an integral part in its colour and flavour. If left in natural light, red wines become paler and whites become yellower, and they age prematurely. Vintec’s UV resistant tinted glass doors and UV free lighting prevent wine discolouration and keep the light from effecting your wine.
2. Vibration Proof Environment
When the slightest of vibrations can keep your wine from maturing properly, it’s important to make sure that this is prevented. Vintec Wine Cabinets are especially designed with oak shelving and sliding shelf railings to absorb and reduce vibrations, allowing your wine to be stored in a protected environment.
3. Quality Airflow
Efficient airflow throughout your cabinet is important to ensure consistent, flowing filtered air throughout the fridge cavity. This limits odours from penetrating your wine and mould growing on corks and labels. Vintec Wine Cabinets are equipped with an efficient air circulation system to protect your wine and maintain airflow.
