Understanding Temperature: 55- 57 degrees F (14 degrees C) is considered to be the ideal temperature for storing and properly aging wine. If the temperature consistently fluctuates up or down several degrees, your wines will be compromised and may age prematurely. Some cooling units are controlled using an in-bottle liquid temperature device, which signals the unit to adjust when it senses a change of 2 to 4 degrees of temperature in the liquid. Unfortunately, by the time the wine inside the insulated bottle reacts to the fluctuation, the air in the cellar has already shifted many more critical degrees.
Split systems are praised for their efficiency and tend to last longer than self-contained units. Also, due to the compressor, fan, and coil being located in another space from where you’re keeping your wine, your cellar will be quite a bit less noisy than with a typical self-contained unit. Since the part of the unit making most of the noise will be separate from your collection, you won’t have to worry about your wine being affected by the vibrations of your cooling unit, which some aficionados believe may affect the aging of red wines.
