Wine cellar: everything you need to know to choose yours

Wine cellar

The wine cellar is an essential cabinet for wine lovers. It allows you to store your free-standing bottles in optimal conditions at room temperature, in order to preserve their flavor and bouquet.

Types of wine cellars

There are two main types of wine cellar; the service cellar and the aging cellar:

. Service cellars are designed to store wine in the short term and age for a few weeks or months. They are generally less expensive than aging cellars and they offer a wider temperature range, allowing a wide variety of wines to be stored.

. Aging cellars are designed to store wine long term, for several years or even decades. They offer a more stable temperature and higher humidity, which is necessary for the aging of the wine.
