OPTIMAL CONDITIONS FOR WINE PRESERVATION

To ensure optimal preservation, a quality wine cellar must meet a number of standards. Through proven technology and superior manufacturing quality, CAVAVIN wine cellars offer an environment that recreates the five necessary conditions for the proper aging and preservation of wine. 

IDEAL CONSERVATION

Consistant temperature 

Extreme temperatures must be avoided at all times. Temperatures above 15 degrees celcius will accelerate the aging of wine, while a temperature below 9 degrees will slow the process down. 

CAVAVIN has had a special thermostat designed for its wine cellars which ensures a consistent temperature of 12 degrees celcius with a maximum of +/- 2 degrees fluctuations. This consistency is further supported with our insulated double casing (read vibration).

No vibrations

A calm environment is critical for quality wine. Vibrations prevent sediments from setting and hinder the development of the wine's flavor and aroma. Our wine cellars are equipped with 2 casings, separated by specialy designed thermal insulant. The outer casing plays an aesthetic role, while the inner casing safeguards your bottles from vibrations. Moreover, the cellar's compressor is located on absorbant padding to further reduce vibrations.

Hygrometry (humidity level)

Overly dry air will dry out bottle corks, leading to wine evaporation and excess oxidation. Air that is too humid, in turn, will negatively impact bottle labels' integrity. 

CAVAVIN wine cellars produce and maintain the ideal level of humidity through accumulated condensation. Excess humidity is evacuated through a drain that empties into a basin under the compressor and evaporated due to compressor heat nearby.

Air circulation

Wine breathes through the bottle's cork. The majority of our wines cellars have a ventillation system, and all of them are build with odorless components, thus preventing unpleasant odors.

Darkness

Protection from UV rays is highly important. CAVAVIN wine cellars are equipped with full doors or glass doors that have been treated to filter UV rays and seal off external light. Our glass doors ensure optimal thermal performance and bear the ENERGY STAR seal. This is the best benchmark in the industry. Moreover, the cellar'S interior lighting, while very limited, makes it possible to clearly see the bottles and gives the cellar a stylish look while used as a display unit.  

 HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT CELLAR FOR YOU?  

Types of wine cellars

Buying a wine cellar is the ideal product to help you preserve and serve your wines at the ideal temperature.

A preservation cellar is for those who have developed a passion for wine and need a cellar where they can keep great bottles until they are ready to taste years later. A service cellar is for those who enjoy wines at right temperatures and would like to keep a variety of wine bottles on hand and ready to be opened.

The number of bottles to store

Do not underestimate how quickly you will acquire bottles for your cellar. We recommend always leaving 25% of empty space in your wine cellar to provide adequate room for storing future must-have!
 
 

One or two zones?

Many of our cellars come with one zone temperature control, which means that all your wine bottles in the cellar will be ready to serve at the right temperature et any time.

Some of our wine cellars offer a two zone temperature control. In these cellars, you can store your white wine bottles in one zone and your red wine bottles  in another zone and a different temperature.

Wine cellar location

Space issues? Go for a built-in model with a glass door for a more fashionable look and to showcase your wine collection. 

If you plan to install your wine cellar in the living room or dining room, it can be built with colored wood that will blend perfectly in your decor.

Your budget

CAVAVIN understands the importance of the price to quality ratio. Better still, we firmly believe that added value is critical, and we apply this philosophy to our wine cellars' capacity. That's why a 200 wine bottles (Majestika series with laminated metal) only costs 20% more than a similar 90 bottle unit.
