Is it the aroma, savoury taste that lingers on your tongue, or the energy that comes afterwards, that made you fall in love with wine? For wine aficionados, it is for all those reasons plus the tradition, history, and story that comes with each bottle of wine.
A fine wine experience begins long before the bottle is opened. How you store wine plays a significant role in preserving its rich taste and aroma. Whereas your refrigerator may serve you well for chilling a bottle ahead of the evening dinner party, it is not suitable for long term storage.
This is where Liebherr Refrigeration comes to your rescue. From their experience in making refrigerators, Liebherr developed wine cellars that ensure your wine is stored in the ideal conditions.

Why Liebherr Refrigeration Is Ideal for Wine Storage
For wine to mature well, it should be stored in ideal conditions that must be maintained at a stable level. Since refrigerators are used to store a wide range of foods, maintaining the ideal conditions for wine storage is near impossible. Liebherr Refrigeration’s wine cellars are ideal for wine storage as they offer all the necessary conditions for storing wine.
- Stable Temperature
Variations in temperature are one of the biggest challenges in long term wine storage. The perfect temperature range for storing wine is between 5°C and 20°C. Wine cellars from Liebherr Refrigeration allow you to maintain stable temperatures within that range.
- Air Quality
Air quality is another factor that ensures wine matures well and can be preserved longer. Poor air quality can also cause damage to the labels and corks as it encourages the growth of mold. Liebherr’s wine cellars come with a charcoal air filter that ensures the air quality is ideal. Also, the natural beech wood shelving ensures that no other chemicals that can affect the maturation of wine can be introduced into the cellar.
When it comes to wine cellar design, humidity control is a critical feature. Ideally, wine should be stored at humidity levels of 50% to 80% depending on relative humidity. When humidity levels are too high, the labels will get damaged, and mold may begin growing. On the other hand, when humidity levels are too low, the corks can begin drying, which can result in loss of precious wine, and oxidization.
When wine is oxidized, it begins degrading and can become spoiled. With Liebherr Refrigeration wine cellars, you will be able to maintain ideal humidity levels, thus ensure your wine continues to become more aromatic and flavorful.
- UV Protection
Exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun causes unwanted reactions in wine as well as discoloration of labels. While selecting Liebherr wine cellars, you will have the option of choosing ones with solid doors or those with tinted glass doors.
- No Vibration
For wine to age gracefully, it requires minimum disturbances. It is for this reason Liebherr Refrigeration wine cellars come with compressors to absorb vibrations.
