A wine cooler is a good wine storage component to house a small collection or a few bottles from your wine cellar. A wine cooler is similar to a refrigerator, however, it can be set to the proper temperature and humidity levels to assure your wine maintains a good quality.
Regular refrigerators are not meant for wine storage. They maintain cooler than necessary temperatures and are constantly being opened and closed, which causes temperature fluctuations and unnecessary movement. These factors cause a negative impact on your wine.
A wine cooler maintains a consistent temperature and can help to preserve your wine in the best condition possible.
