About Wine and Aging
About Wine and Aging
 Wine is a living product that evolutes in time
- too hot = quick evolution and looses its quality sooner.
- too cold = no evolution (preservation)
All wines age at the same temperature (10-14°C – 50-57°F) only drinking temperatures differ.
Not only temperature affects the process of ageing. Light, ventilation, vibration also have a great impact on the process.
 Bottles coolers = preservation only
- a fridge is dedicated to conservation without modification as long as possible + it dries the atmosphere.
- A wine cabinet is dedicated to allow maturation of the wine.
 2 products = 2 uses = 2 different conceptions
 In 10 years, the price of a bottle can be multiplied by 6 to 10
Consider the future value of the content of the wine cabinet and not today’s cost of the unit
 Wine = pleasure
Pleasure starts with selecting and buying the bottle and ends up with tasting and conviviality. The wine cabinet will contribute to this
magic moment by creating the optimum conditions of ageing and service. Do not break the magic by offering inadequate conditions to
your wines.
 Wine is a specific product that requires specific care.
Only a manufacturer that understands these specificities
can propose a dedicated solution.
