How to store and enjoy fine wines

The right temperature is always a key factor, from the ripening of the grapes to the wines' production and storage, and through to the actual drinking of the wine.

The right temperature is always a key factor, from the ripening of the grapes to the wines' production and storage, and through to the actual drinking of the wine.

From when the first young vine shoots appear, right through to bottling, vintners employ great expertise, devotion and diligence to ensure that only the very best drops fill the bottles. White wines are aged in barrels or special tanks for several months, at least, before they are ready for bottling. Red wines, on the other hand, can often take several years to age and, but after that, many will still not have developed their full flavour. When kept under optimum storage conditions, wines can age and further improve in the bottle.

Consistently cool – a dream climate for your wine

Whether it's winter or summer, wine needs a consistent temperature. Your precious bottles must be protected from UV light and all kinds of fragrances and odours. Even dry air and vibration can impair the quality of the wine. In Liebherr wine cabinets, fine wines are safe in the ideal storage conditions – to guarantee pure enjoyment.
