Storage and preservation advice...
Did you know? All wines mature at the same temperature, whether underground or in an electric wine cabinet.
Maturing cabinets EuroCave reproduces all of the criteria required for effectively maturing wines, in this way recreating, on a smaller scale, the ideal storage conditions found in a natural cellar. 5 criteria are essential for a wine to reach its full potential:
A constant temperature - For optimal wine maturing, it is necessary to have a stable temperature of 10°C - 14°C, whatever the external temperature is.
Suitable humidity levels - It is essential to maintain suitable humidity levels, between 50 and 80%. The ideal humidity level is 50 - 80%. Below 50%, the cork could dry out causing the wine to leech out. Above 80%, condensation could appear on the bottles and the labels could peel off. Mold may even develop if there is insufficient air circulation.
Ideal ventilation - it is essential to ensure there is sufficient air circulation or mould and bacteria could develop.
Maximum protection from light - For optimal maturation, wine must be protected from all sources of light: only darkness prevents the deterioration of tannins by oxidation. Direct sunlight containing UV rays causes irreparable damage to wine. Indirect light is also harmful. In the long term, it can break down the structure of the wine and dilute it.
Absence of vibrations - In order to mature in optimal conditions, wine must be protected from vibrations, which break down the molecules of some of wine's chemical compounds.
Bottle Capacity: 180 bottles*
Ambient Temperature range: 32-81 degrees
Weight: 595 lbs
Dimensions: 50.55"W x 19.65"D x 86.2"H
*A Note About Bottle Capacities: Wine Enthusiast's stated bottle capacities is always based off of storing all standard Bordeaux size bottles, which are generally 12" H and 2 7/8" W. 750 ML bottle sizes can vary greatly in both height and width, so be sure to check the bottles in your collection as larger bottles (i.e. Pinot Noir, Burgundy, Syrah, Champagne, etc.) will lower capacity. If up to 50% of your collection consists of these taller/wider750 ML bottles, capacity can be lowered by 10-15%, if over 50% of your collection consists of these taller/wider 750 ML bottles, capacity can be lowered by up to 25-30%.

A Note About Bottle Sizes and Storage Capacity
When we reference bottle capacity for our wine cellars, we are referring to the maximum quantity of "standard" Bordeaux-size bottles that will fit into that cellar. In reality, as you can see from the chart above, there is no true standard size bottle these days as bottles come in varying styles, sizes and shapes. Some are extremely tall and thin (like a Riesling bottle), others are shorter yet wide at the shoulders (like the Pinot Noir or Turley bottle) and others are tall, wide and broad at the shoulders (like your large California red bottle). If you have any of these non "standard" Bordeaux size bottles in your collection, your capacity can be lower than what we state the unit can hold.
Here is our rule of thumb: If up to half of your collection consists of non-standard Bordeaux-size bottles, your maximum capacity may be reduced by 20-25%. If your collection consists mostly of these larger sized bottles, your maximum capacity may be reduced by as much as 40%. The one thing we do know is that all collections are different, and that's the great thing about collecting wine! If you have any questions regarding your collection and its effect on your capacity, call one of our Wine Storage Specialists at 800.377.3330 for a full consultation.
