^ To turn the alarm off early, press the "alarm" sensor button. The "alarm" indicator and signal will turn off.

14

Optimum temperature and air quality

Wine will continue to mature depending on the surrounding conditions. The length of time which wine can be kept in good condition will therefore depend not only on the temperature but also on the air quality.

The wine storage unit provides a constant temperature, increased humidity and an odor-free environment, creating the best possible storage conditions for your wine.

Temperature

Wine can be stored at temperatures between 41°F and 64°F (5 - 18°C). If you would like to store red and white wines together, choose a temperature between 50°F and 54°F (10 - 12 °C).

Most white wines are palatable at this temperature. It is best to take red wine out of the appliance about 2 hours before drinking. Open the wine to allow it to breathe and to develop its aroma.

After 2 hours, red wine will be at the correct temperature for drinking.

Storage temperatures above 72°F

(22°C) will cause wines to mature too quickly. By contrast, wine should not be stored below 41°F (5°C), since it will not mature fully at this low temperature.

Fluctuations in temperature put wine under stress and interrupt the maturing process. Therefore, it is important to maintain a constant temperature.

Setting the temperature

The factory (default) settings for the temperature zones are as follows:

The upper temperature zone is set for optimal red-wine storage:

Red temper 61°F (16°C)

The middle temperature zone is set for optimal white-wine storage:

White temper 50°F (10°C)

The lower temperature zone is intended for wine storage in general.

Wine storage 52°F (11°C)

You can change the "purpose" of the zones as you wish.

For example, you can store white wine in the upper temperature zone, as long as you adjust the temperature accordingly:

^ Tap the sensor button for the desired temperature zone, so that it turns yellow.

^ Select the preferred temperature setting so that the sensor button turns yellow.

The setting "white temper" is not available in the lower temperature zone.

15

Optimum temperature and air quality

Temperatures can be independently set in all three zones.

The unit comes factory pre-set for white wine, red wine, and wine storage.

The temperatures can be changed as desired.

Once you have adjusted the temperature, check the temperature after a few hours. It will take this long for the appliance to reach the temperature. If, after this time, the temperature is still too high or too low, it should be adjusted again.

^ Select the temperature zone you would like to change the temperature in.

Temperature ranges

– upper temperature zone

3°C to 18°C or

37°F to 64°F.

– middle temperature zone

3°C to 18°C or

37°F to 64°F.

– lower temperature zone

8°C to 18°C or

46°C to 64°F.

Use the

X and Y buttons next to the temperature display to set the temperature warmer or colder.

– The temperature will change in 1° increments.

– Hold the button down to change the value continuously.

– When the lowest or highest temperature is reached the corresponding arrow will no longer appear in the display.

The factory-suggested temperature for the selected zone appears in yellow.

16

Optimum temperature and air quality

Insulation panels for thermal separation

The unit has two fixed insulation panels, to divide the interior into the three different temperature zones. This allows you to store three different types of wine, such as red wine, white wine and champagne.

The correct serving temperature is crucial for the taste and therefore your enjoyment of the wine.

The following temperatures are recommended for the different types of wine:

Temperature display

The temperature display on the control panel always shows the

required temperature.

The temperature display will flash if the temperature in one of the zones is too high or too cold.

Tap the

X and Y sensor buttons to raise/lower the temperature 1°, or hold them down to move through the temperature range more quickly.

When you are in the Custom settings mode the door alarm is turned off automatically. Once the door is closed it is reactivated.

18

Optimum temperature and air quality

Humidity

In a conventional refrigerator, the humidity levels are too low for storing wines. High humidity levels (60 - 70 %) are very important for the storage of wine, so that the corks remain moist.

Under low humidity, the corks dry out from the outside and can no longer seal the bottles properly. This is why wine bottles should always be stored lying down, so that the wine can keep the corks moistened from within. If air enters the bottle, a wine will inevitably spoil.

Tip: Wine bottles should stand upright for at least two hours before serving, or, better still whole day long, to enable sediment to settle to the bottom of the bottle.

Setting the humidity level

The unit comes factory pre-set to high humidity.

If you would like to use the wine unit for long-term storage, it is recommended that you select the higher humidity. The interior climate will then correspond with the conditions in a wine cellar.

Humidity is raised or lowered for all temperature zones simultaneously.

^ Touch the access button "p" so it turns yellow.

^ Tap the sensor button for any temperature zone so it turns yellow.

^ Note the position of the X button, but do not touch.

^ Touch the access button "p" again so it turns white.

Only the access button " p" is visible.

^ Place one finger on the position of the X button and hold (the X button will not be visible).

19

Optimum temperature and air quality

^ While holding down the X button, press the access button " p" once.

Keep holding the X button down until the following appears in the display

(approx. 5 seconds).

^ Tap the X button until 0 appears in the display.

^ Touch the access button "p" to confirm.

^ By touching the X button you can either increase or decrease the humidity inside the unit.

o 0: lower humidity o 1: higher humidity o –: return to menu.

^ Touch the access button "p" to confirm the setting.

^ Tap the X button until a ; appears in the display.

If you have selected a higher humidity setting, the fans will cut in.

This is to ensure that the humidity is uniformly distributed throughout the interior.

Whenever the unit door is opened, the fans will automatically switch off temporarily.

Air filtering with an active charcoal filter

External air passes through the filter before entering the unit.

The active charcoal filter ensures that only clean, odor-free air enters the unit, creating additional protection against odor contamination.

The filter will need to be changed periodically, or when odors are present in the unit. See "Cleaning and Care - Active charcoal filter" for more information.

^ Touch the access button "p".

You have left the Custom settings mode.

When you are in the Custom settings mode the door alarm is turned off automatically. Once the door is closed it is reactivated.

Storing wine

Storage tips

– Always unpack bottles – do not store wine in crates or boxes.

– Always lay bottles on their side for storage. This keeps the corks moist from the inside, preventing air from entering.

– Store similar wine varieties beside each other on the same shelf, to avoid restacking and the need to disturbed other bottles.

– Before serving, rosé and red wine bottles should spend at least two hours upright and open, to reach optimal drinking temperature.

Sparkling wine and champagnes should be chilled briefly in the refrigerator before serving.

– Remember that wine should always be cooled to slightly lower than the ideal serving temperature, as the temperature increases by 1° to 2° as soon as it is poured into a glass.

Wooden racks

For convenient removal and addition of bottles, the wooden racks can be pulled out on rails.

The wooden racks can also be completely removed.
