Professional wine storage that turns a practical need into a design feature is a plus for any connoisseur – Vintec has some attractive options

Sight to savour


Down the creaking stair and past the cobwebbed cellar door – the lengths we used to go to for that prized drop of wine. But now that has all changed, with wine storage in the form of sleek cabinets that will highlight your taste for good wine.

If you are proud of your personal wine collection and would like it cellared efficiently and close to hand, then introducing the Danish 130-bottle Vintec V150 or 170-capacity V190 into your design plans is a solid option, says marketing manager Thomas Benhamou.

"The Vintec Allect Range looks the part in either the kitchen or living spaces.Attractive crystal white LEDs and tinted glass – which protects the wine from harmful UV rays – both contribute to the high-end presence of the appliances."

Available built-in or freestanding, the cabinets recreate the optimum storage conditions once only found at the bottom of that ill-lit, meandering staircase.

"Quiet and energy-efficient, this new breed of wine storage unit eliminates the temperature variations that can denature wines," says Benhamou. "They maintain a constant humidity level of about 65%, so corks don't crack, damaging the wine."
