Every home where wine is served should have its own wine cooler. Under counter wine coolers are perfect additions to any living space, from cramped apartments to sprawling mansions. Under counter wine coolers are ideal ways to store wine. Several factors should be controlled in any wine storage area: light, vibration, humidity, as well as the positions of the wine bottle. Both under counter and freestanding wine coolers allow wine owners to control these four variables in their collections.
Light, specifically ultraviolet (UV) rays react with the sediment of wine, ruining the flavor of the wine. Under counter wine coolers solve this problem in an affordable way by providing a dark space for wine, much like a wine cellar.
Many models of under counter wine coolers are thermoelectric, meaning they operate with a condenser. This type of wine cooler is both quieter and vibrates less than a refrigerator, so using this appliance means your wine will not be exposed to troubling vibrations.
Wine coolers that are either under counter or freestanding also allow owners to control the humidity of their storage area. This replicates a wine cellar in homes and other places where wine cellars are simply not practical
Another advantage of under counter wine coolers is the fact that these appliances allow wine to be store horizontally—the way it should be—in order to keep the cork wet and to prevent cork rot.
