So, you’ve decided on a fine wine selection for your business, and it feels like everything is coming together. The next step is usually deciding which wine storage units will work best.
Whether you’re storing wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhône or other various wine regions, you need to find a wine storage facility which caters to the range you intend on offering. It can be daunting trying to choose the right wine storage units, especially when it’s relevant to your business.
After curating your vintage wine collection, why wouldn’t you want to invest in a professional wine storage system? With our helpful guide, you can decide which of our wine storage services is right for you and your customers.
Presenting Your Wine Selection Properly
Deciding what to do with the space you have is an important step in choosing between different wine storage units. Whether you have big plans for an impressive cooler system to showcase your product range, or a discreet storage facility, finding the right units for your business starts with choosing how to present the service to your customers.
If you have limited space, our range of integrated wine coolers could be perfect for your business - they’re great for fitting in discreetly between cabinets.
Some of our suppliers, such as Dunavox, specialise in integrated wine cooler systems. No matter the space you’re working with, Enofaber will be able to provide a wine storage facility that’s right for your business.
Alternatively, you might be on the lookout for a wine cooler which allows you to showcase your business’ wine reserves, making it a focal point of the space. Our freestanding units are ideal for this, as they can be positioned anywhere.
We understand it can be hard finding the perfect place for your wine cooler, so if this is something you’re struggling with then consider buying a freestanding cooler. The great thing about freestanding wine coolers is their versatility and free-reign, meaning you’re able to move them whenever you want.
As we’ve mentioned, it’s understandable why you’d want to prioritise showing off the collection of fine wines you’ve managed to curate. We have a selection of units which allow for several bottles to be displayed upright at the front - perfect if you’re wanting to capitalise on their eye-catching labels.
The taste of wine can be impacted by UV light, so if you’re going to install a unit with glass doors, it is important to ensure they are UV treated. Alternatively, you could install opaque doors, which may even give an element of mystery to your fine wine collection.
Why Are Wine Coolers Beneficial?
Having a wine cooler is beneficial for anyone who drinks and sells wine. Storing your wine at the right temperature is crucial, as storing wine in the wrong conditions could sabotage the taste.
Humility, ventilation control and anti-vibration are all on the list of benefits that commercial wine coolers come with. A variety of different coloured interior cooler lighting is another reason why wine coolers are so popular, as they provide a sleek and stylish appearance.
The general benefits of owning a wine cooler are that they help your wine stay fresher for longer and provide the right humidity, unlike a regular fridge which has the potential to ruin your wine. Wine coolers are also incredibly versatile, allowing you to store non-alcoholic drinks as well.
Why Wine Shouldn't Be Stored In A Regular Fridge
Storing wine in a regular fridge might seem logical, it’s cold and keeps your wine chilled, what could possibly go wrong?
The short answer as to whether you should store wine in a regular fridge or not is no. A typical household fridge doesn’t provide the right conditions for wine, whereas a wine cooler does due to its more advanced features.
To give an example, Chardonnay must be stored at a specific temperature to protect the bottle's full-bodied taste and longevity. The ideal temperature for Chardonnay can’t be reached in a normal fridge, and if it is then it can only last for two hours until it starts to become over-chilled.
Regular fridges are known to stunt your wine development, affect their overall taste and dry out the cork - making it even more appealing to purchase a wine cooler.
The Right Temperature For The Right Taste
Whilst the presentation of your wine is important to help ensure your customers can see the full range of products available, it’s even more important to make sure the bottles are stored at the optimum temperature to preserve their taste and overall drinking experience.
You might have some ideas to offer a variety of reds, whites, and rosés, which can taste different depending on the temperatures they're chilled at. If you’ve invested in wines, why would you want to ruin their taste by storing them at the wrong temperatures?
Red wine is best served just below room temperature, whereas Champagne should be served at around 10°c. Finding a storage facility that accommodates both can prove difficult, however, duel or multiple zone coolers allow various wines to be stored at their optimum temperature.
Now you should have a better understanding of why the right wine storage facility is so important to your business's reputation and the customers’ enjoyment. After sipping your wine that’s been stored correctly, customers will never want to buy wine off the supermarket shelf again.
All that is left to do is to browse our collections and decide which one of our units is right for you.
