Picture this: you have decided to start your own wine collection, and you’ve kicked things off in fine fashion with the purchase of an entry-level bottle of vintage Penfolds. An occasion worth celebrating pops up – it could be landing that dream job or a milestone birthday – and suddenly it’s time to bring out the vintage. After taking that first sip, you realise that something isn’t quite right, and that bottle of vintage (and your money) ends up going down the drain.
Whether you’re a budding collector or an established ‘winethusiast’, storing your wine collection correctly is far more important than you’d think. Everything from temperature fluctuations to UV light and vibration can have a massive effect on the quality of your wine. If you’ve invested in a fine wine collection, it makes sense that you should invest some time and money into protecting and preserving it – after all, a wine collection is one valuable asset. That’s why it’s worth splurging on a specialised wine fridge, which is specifically tailored to store and age your wine so it maintains its taste and longevity. If you’ve invested in quality vintage wine, such as these top picks for 2019, it deserves to be kept in optimum conditions for those special occasions and impromptu celebrations.
If you’d like to elevate your wine storage game, look no further than Grand Cru’s BLACK range, which combines innovative technology with sleek and sophisticated design. The compact size of the best-selling BLACK 46DB is perfect for budding collections with its 46 bottle capacity, and the dual temperature zones mean you can store both red and white wines in their optimum conditions. The small and sleek design has been a hit, with many customers noting that the fridge looks great and works well while also fitting perfectly under their kitchen bench. If you’re looking for something with more space, try the popular BLACK 166DB– the regulated humidity and temperature control features will keep your wine in good shape for years to come, and the 166 bottle capacity gives you an excuse to splash out on some new additions to your collection.
Happy customers such as Tony say that the model ‘superseded his expectations’, claiming he ‘couldn’t be happier with the look and performance of the unit’.
Want to take your wine storage to the next level? Look no further than the sleek and chic BLACK 194PB, which includes fancy features such as on door digital temperature setting and an impressive 194 bottle capacity.
The modern black finishmakes it unique, ‘couldn’t find any other black look units on the market…Grand Cru has really completed our look’.– Craig
