At the holidays, everyone wishes they had a dream kitchen with appliances that make entertaining easier. If you are looking for dream kitchen ideas, think exquisite design details and superior performance. Nothing checks off those boxes more than Sub-Zero Wine Storage. With its ability to stand out in gleaming stainless steel or beautifully blend into your aesthetic when clad to match your cabinetry, Sub-Zero Wine Storage is a stunning addition to your kitchen. However, it’s Sub-Zero’s singular performance in wine preservation that should put it at the top of your list of dream kitchen must-haves. So much more than a wine refrigerator, Sub-Zero Wine Storage is a guardian against heat, humidity, vibration and light – the four enemies that can rob wine of its complexity and character.
This dream kitchen idea comes in a beautiful array of sizes and configurations.
Sub-Zero offers wine storage in three widths, from 18” to 30”, with 46-147-bottle capacity. You can select from column or under-counter models. This allows you to tuck your wines in a small space or create a grand wine statement as part of your dream kitchen design. There’s even a model that preserves wine on top with Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer drawers beneath.
Sub-Zero’s precise temperature control makes the difference.
Precise temperature and humidity control is the key to preserving wines flawlessly. With two individually controlled zones, you can store both reds and whites at the exact temperature necessary for optimal enjoyment. The wine racks glide smoothly, providing access without agitating the wine. UV-resistant, bronze-tinted glass prevents light exposure and dual evaporators maintain constant, moderate humidity. You can even add on specially designed dessert wine shelves and choose tags to label your wines for easy access.
Expert advice on Sub-Zero Wine Storage and Holiday Wines…
At Clarke, New England’s Official Sub-Zero, Wolf and Cove Showroom and Test Kitchen, you’ll find a team with unique expertise to help you select just the right wine storage for your dream kitchen. Clarke Showroom Consultants are also experienced in integrating Sub-Zero Wine Storage into a pantry, wet bar, library and other rooms in your home. Here are some of their recommendations on holiday wines that store perfectly in Sub-Zero….
- Clarke Corporate Showroom Director Marco Barallon recommends Chateau Neuf De Pape; reserve 2015. He and his wife always have this wine on hand.
- Clarke Chef Shelby Grigoriadis says she always brings a bottle of Amarone della Valpolicella to holiday gatherings. It’s one of the few dry wines made with dried grapes, which makes the wine extremely fruit forward, adding to the complexity of its signature barrel aging and higher alcohol content. Store in your Sub-Zero Wine Storage between 51-60F.
- Clarke Boston Showroom Manager Jeremy McCulla highly recommends Repris Vineyard’s 2016 Right Bank. He not only loves the wine, he recommends you visit the vineyard if you travel to Sonoma. You can subscribe and have shipments of your favorites sent during the year.
- Rachel Werrick, Clarke’s new Milford Showroom Manager, recommends a 1997 Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon, from a cult winery founded in 1986. She says this flawless wine starts out with a mouthful of bright blackberries that are intermixed with cassis and finishes with a hint of toast and vanilla. She recommends storing it at 55 degrees in your Sub-Zero Wine Storage.
