Why and how do wines age?
It is essential to know how to determine the optimal moment for tasting wines. The ageing process is altered by poor storage (variations in temperatures, vibrations, light, etc).
The choice of suitable cellar, using these criteria, is crucial to ensure that our great wines reach their peak.
Dometic Wine Cellars keep in mind all these aspects and preserve your vintages through its exclusive absorption technology.
Important to remmenber:
- Neither white nor red wine likes changes in temperature. The ideal temperature for all wine is 12°C.
- Wines react to vibrations, which interfere with the ageing process.
- Wines especially dislike exposure to ultraviolet light and are best kept in the complete darkness of a wine cellar.
- Keeping the cork in good condition requires between 50 and 80% humidity.
- Poor ventilation can affect the taste of the wine.
Thanks to any Dometic wine cabinet, your wines will be preserved in the best conditions.
Why do we care for wine service?
Once you have brought your wines to maturity it is time for tasting, when each wine, a unique artisanal item, offers up its secrets. Unfortunately, and despite optimal maturity, a major wine may be spoilt when tasting simply because it is not served at the correct temperature.
A wine, if it is too cold, will lose its aromas and bouquet and, if is too hot, will be dominated by the taste of alcohol.
