Wine refrigerator reviews can tell you so much information about the wine fridge you should get. Having your own wine refrigerator to keep your wine so that it ages properly is a great step in your evolvement as a wine connoisseur.
There are a few benefits to keeping your wine in a wine fridge or wine cooler rather than storing your wine in a cellar. You are more likely to keep other things in your cellar apart from wine and these things can be damaging for your wine. Keeping ham or cheeses in your wine cellar is actually a very bad idea s the smell can make its way through the corks and into the wine.
Imagine bring a wine to a dinner with the label half chewed off by mice – not a good look – if you are keeping your wine in a cellar it is very important to keep it as clean as possible to avoid insects and mice..
Making sure your wine cellar is properly ventilated is also very beneficial. Having a wine that smells like mould or stinks of must is a really bad way to start or finish your evening.
Many wine refrigerator reviews will sometimes look at two different styles of wine cooler with the first being a thermoelectric wine cooler - these wine coolers are good, because they don’t vibrate, but they don’t actually keep your wine cold so they aren’t that good if you are using it everyday.
The other kind of wine cooler that is often reviewed in many wine refrigerator reviews is compressor driven - these types of wine coolers keep really cold and are really good for storing wine (whites especially) if you are in it every few days or so … pretty much a place to store your wine for drinking instead of aging.
