L’Atelier du Vin has been creating exclusive wine tools since 1926. Their family business has now become the oenology specialist, from cellar to table.
The cellar is a place that may hold secrets, or treasures. It gives an added dimension to a house or flat. It should look after its guests, and so be dark, cool, vibration-free, and well ventilated. Wine is a living substance, so it reacts to certain stimulations, such as movement, light, heat or cold.
Temperature should be fairly constant: between 9°C and 12°C in winter, and not over 15°C in the summer. Rapid changes in temperature can make your wines age faster and less harmoniously. Store at between 10°C and 12°C, white wines are at the ideal temperature for both ageing and serving, whilst red wines will age slowly and well. They will just need to be brought up from the cellar an hour before serving.
Hygrometry (the amount of moisture in the air) should be at around 70°C. This will help keep corks supple and the air out of the wine inside.
It is better to avoid storing any smell substance (onions, cheese, fuel oil, paint, etc) in the cellar, as some corks (not the best ones) can be slightly permeable.
Temperature is given in Degree Celsius and Fahrenheit. Can stand on a flat surface or can be fixed on the wall.
