Some wine experts debate the importance of humidity for proper wine storage. It can be argued that the relative humidity within a bottle is maintained 100% regardless of the closure used or the orientation of the bottle. However, we believe low humidity can be a problem because it may cause organic corks to dry prematurely. The famous European wine caves naturally maintain humidity at around 60%. We can help you achieve the same environment by adding humidifier functionality to virtually any Split System.
In creating the ideal wine-vironment, keeping an area cool is not always the only consideration. In climates with ambient temperatures that can fall below 55°F (13°C), it might be necessary to heat your space in order to keep your wine at a constant temperature all year. Most CellarMate solutions can be outfitted with an electric heat option which allow you to either cool or heat the air in your cellar, ensuring your wine is always protected regardless of outside environment temperatures.
