Comments about EuroCave Revelation L Black Shelf Right Hinge:
I never expected to pay this much for a wine cooler. I thought it would be cheap because I wanted a unit to do three basic things:
1) Keep my wines at an even temperature
2) Keep my wines at a nice humidity (65%)
3) Not break down or malfunction since I plan to keep this for a while.
Every wine cooler meets the first condition, that's not hard to do.
Very few have humidity control and even fewer do it well. Too much or too little humidity and years of aging are destroyed. The method that EuroCave uses seems perfect and has been well reviewed in their older models proving they can stand the test of time.
The third reason is why I paid for the best. EuroCaves are very highly regarded and users who own their older models still claim to have no major issues with them. For a little bit more now, you truly can have perfectly aged wine in the future.
I was comparing this to a cheaper cooler, but played out in my head what would happen if I bought that cooler. A) I would have an extra cash to buy wine with now, which would be a lot of great wine to age. B) 8 years from now I would start to open that wine to find some of it bad, at which point I have saved nothing, and in fact lost 8 years of wine aging because I was trying to be cheep now. That to me would be VERY frustrating and was the reason that I not only went with EuroCave, but went with their flagship cooler.
Maybe the cheaper models will work fine for 15 years, but I'm not willing to risk 15 years of my life to find out, since I only plan to live it once.
It's hard to give a true review of a product like this, since I won't know if it worked for several more years, but what I do know is it looks amazing, the controls are very easy to use and the display provides all the data points I'd need. Setup was also easy.
Lastly, the folks at Wine Enthusiast have been more than helpful. Marshal was very knowledgeable about all the coolers, and I never felt pressure from him to go with the Revelation. I'd done weeks of looking before I reached out to him, and he still provided great insight to help me hone in on the right cooler.
