Wine Storage Climate Controls

The Fine Wine Reserve is designed to protect the quality and integrity of your wines by eliminating all the environmental threats, including improper temperature, extremely low or high humidity levels, fluctuating temperature, excessive light, odour and vibration. The cellar is kept at a constant 55°F (±0.5°F) or 12.8°C, and humidity between 65% and 75% RH. Routine maintenance, equipment redundancy, and real time environmental monitoring guarantees the long-term reliability of these conditions.

At first glance, the difference between a professional cellaring facility like ours and a less qualified facility may not be immediately apparent. Each facility may use similar refrigeration equipment, but the cooling equipment cannot by itself create proper cellaring conditions. What really matters is the overall design of the climate control system, and the quality and integrity of the surrounding cellar infrastructure.

The building in which our cellar is located underwent a complete retrofit to upgrade the building's envelope to cellaring application standards. Advanced cooling, humidification, dehumidification and air-handling systems were installed, in total $600,000 was invested into the retrofit. This capital transformed basic warehouse space or cold storage into genuine professional cellaring.
