Store your wine in style, and at the perfect temperature, with this stainless steel and glass wine cooler from Smeg. With adjustable wooden slatted shelves, and a maximum storage of 198 bottles, your wine will be stored with care and style.
How big is this wine cabinet?
This is quite a big cabinet – it holds 115 bottles with the conventional shelf layout – but can actually hold up to 198 bottles. The outside dimensions are:
Depth: 600 mm
Height: 1850 mm
Width: 600 mm
How are the bottles stored?
There are six wooden slatted shelves that stop the bottles from rolling. They are completely adjustable so you can layer the bottles higher on certain shelves if you need to. You can also remove the shelves completely if you want. The interior is lit so you can always see what wine you have, without having to open the door.
Can I change and control the temperature in the cabinet?
Yes – Smeg knows that constant storage temperatures are required to allow wines to mature to perfection. The ideal temperature for maturing is the same for all wines, whether red or white, and lies between +10°C and +12°C. The precision electronic control system, combined with state-of-the-art climate technology, makes sure that the set temperature in the interior is continuously maintained, even when the outside temperatures fluctuate.
You can adjust the temperature between 6°C up to 22°C so you’re always in control. There is an alarm to let you know if the temperature falls below 2°C.
There are two temperature zones that you can set at different levels – so you can have warmer reds up top, and cooler whites down below.
Why does the door have UV protection?
Wine bottles are, in most cases, tinted because UV light has a damaging effect on wine maturation. However, the bottles alone are insufficient protection. In order to minimise the exposure to radiation, this Smeg wine cabinet features special UV-resistant glass. In this way, stocks of wine can be protected whilst being stylishly showcased.
I have children – I don’t want them in this cabinet.
That’s ok – this wine cabinet comes with a child lock so you know that your youngsters can’t get in and mess with your drink.
