If you’re a wine enthusiast, then you know that storing your wine correctly is essential to preserving taste and quality. That’s why investing in a high-quality wine fridge is a no-brainer. But what type of wine fridge should you buy? In this blog post, we’ll take a look at the benefits of owning a dual zone wine fridge. After reading this post, you’ll know whether a dual zone wine fridge is the right choice for you.
What is a Dual Zone Wine Fridge?
This type of wine fridge is a type of refrigerator that has two separate temperature-controlled compartments. Allowing you to store your wines at two different temperatures, it is ideal for storing both red and white wines.
Why You Should Buy a Dual Zone Wine Fridge
Firstly, it allows you to store both red and white wines at their optimal temperatures. White wines are best stored between 5-12 degrees Celsius, while red wines should be stored between 12-18 degrees Celsius. Storing your wines at their ideal temperatures can be simple with two separately controlled zones in your fridge. If you have some of your favourite Chardonnay’s left over from Summer, you can store them at the ideal temperature through Winter until Spring.
Another benefit of owning a dual zone wine fridge is that it gives you the flexibility to store both open and unopened bottles of wine. If you have an open bottle of wine that you plan on finishing within the next few days, you can store it in the refrigerator section so that it stays fresh. Or, if you have an unopened bottle of white wine that you want to age for a few years, you can store it in the cooler section until it’s ready to drink.
Lastly, it can increase the value of your home. Luxury appliances such as wine fridges can add value to your home. Thinking of selling your home soon? Your buyer may be willing to pay more as integrated appliances like wine fridges really add an opulent touch to kitchens.
We at Willow Oak Wine Storage just love the versatility of having the perfect wine to pair with dinner. When we get to pour our favourite wine’s at their ideal temperature it makes us go back to normal refrigeration.
