        Glass Wine Cellar | Wine Coolers Empire - Trusted Dealer

        How to store wine at a consistent temperature and humidity?

        To maintain a constant temperature and humidity, your wine cellar must be well-insulated, sealed with a proper vapor barrier, and install a wine cellar cooling system.

        What is the best temperature and humidity to store wine?

        The ideal wine storage temperature is 55°F, though any temperature between 45°F and 65°F would do. To prevent dried-out corks, which could allow air into the wine, keep the wine storage humidity level around 70%.

        How long do wine cellar cooling units last?

        A cooling system's lifespan varies. Cheaper models may last from 1 to 5 years, while expensive and high-quality ones can last up to 20 years. The wine cellar cooling system must also be properly prepared, installed, and maintained to increase its lifespan for more decades.

        How do I choose a wine cooling unit?

        We always advise giving some wiggle room when sizing your cooling system. For example, don't choose a unit with a maximum capacity of 200 cubic feet if the wine cellar is 200 cubic feet. Choose a unit with a capacity of at least 265-300 cubic feet instead.
