Wine Cooler Reviews  -  Red Or White?

When reading wine cooler reviews there are a few things that you should take into consideration. The main thing you need to think about is what size wine cooler do you need. And will you be storing red wine, white wine or both.

Some people favor one style (red or white) more than the other and certain wine fridges are better at keeping one style more than the other. We will look at that a bit further on in this article.

It is important to keep you wine in a wine cooler to stop your wine from going bad or off. Wine can go bad for a few reasons but the main one is that it has not been kept properly.

Wine should be kept in a place that is at a consistent temperature of about 14 degrees Celsius. If you keep wine a temperature that is much hotter it can actually cook inside the bottle. If it is kept a temperature that is too cold it will freeze.

Large fluctuations in temperature will cause the wine to contract and also expand and this is not very good at all. This contacting and expanding does two things it moves the cork up and down in the neck of the bottle (which lets in harmful oxygen) and also causes the chemical reactions that are happening inside the bottle to speed up and slow down - messing with the maturing process. It is also very important to keep your wine away from direct light and UV light.

Many wine coolers offer glass doors that offer UV protection and this is great. If you are storing your wine in an actual cellar then you should make sure that these is not a lot of natural light as this can destroy the wine.

Another very important factor especially if your wine is sealed with cork is the humidity levels. You need to have a humidity level of about 70% or the corks will dry out and they will shrink again allowing them to move up and down in the bottle and letting in small amounts of oxygen.

When thinking about which wine cooler to buy and looking wine cooler reviews online it is important to think about these things. Many wine cooler reviews will also feature dual compartment wine coolers, which are great for not only storing red and white wines but also keeping them at good drinking temperatures. If you keep your wine properly you will be able to enjoy it for many years to come.
