Why should I store my wine in a proper Wine Cellar?
To make a good wine, you need a winemaker who has a lot of experience with the upbringing in the vineyard and the vinification in the cellar. This person gives his vines just enough support that they need so that the grape berries get the maximum strength and flavor. The best winemakers also do the minimum to nothing in the cellar to beautify and develop the wine. In short, they rely on the terroir and leave the wine to it.
Such wines, whether white or red, often need a lot of time to develop. With an optimal wine storage climate, they develop considerably over the years and become better and better.
Optimal wine storage climate
For us humans, 25° in the shade is usually the ideal average temperature at which we feel comfortable. However, if you leave your wine to these temperatures, it will not enjoy it very much and you will enjoy it even less later. Above all, wine storage temperatures that are too high but also fluctuate have a strong negative impact on the wine, if not even ruin it. Other negative influences are too low humidity and odor emissions. From our experience we can state that the storage conditions for wine in residential buildings are very rarely optimal..
The advantages of a professional wine storage
In our wine storage the conditions are ideal for your wine. There is a constant temperature of 14° and humidity of at least 65% all year round. This allows your precious wines to mature slowly and under controlled conditions in a professional wine cellar. The wine gets the opportunity to reach the optimal maturity and thus offer you maximum enjoyment.
High quality wines are often affordable only when they have just come on the market. If you buy the wines matured at the retailer, they are much more expensive. On average, high-quality wines increase in value by about least 10% per year.
For the sake of the environment, we compensate our energy consumption and have therefore decided to have a tree planted every month for every rented wine storage compartment. At full capacity, this makes over 20’000 trees per year and a positive balance of 25 tons of CO2. Thus we reduce the CO2 footprint of our company including its employees to zero.
