Hybrid Technology hybride
This new technology combines the reliability of thermoelectrics with the cooling performance of a compressor. This highly accurate equipment is already used in cutting edge technology applications, particularly for satellite and microprocessor cooling. This technological innovation provides masterful temperature control. And, as there is no longer a compressor, your wine is absolutely vibration proofed, and your machine is quiet.
Whatever the ambient temperature in your room, as long as it remains between 5 and 38°C, the winter function guarantees that you have the required temperature inside the cabinet. When the surrounding temperature is lower than the temperature required inside the cabinet, a resistance switches on and raises the temperature inside your wine cabinet. This enables you to install your wine cabinet in an unheated room, such as a cabinet
Visual and audible Alarm
On models that come with a visual and/or audible alarm, the alarm is set off immediately the temperature inside the cabinet reaches and stays above / below the min or max temperature setting, which can happen for instance if the door is improperly shut, or in the event of a power failure.
Head-to-tail bottle Storage
A method for storing wine bottles that consists of installing one row at the back, with the bottle bottom facing the rear, then one row at the front, with the bottle bottom facing forward. This optimizes storage capacity, over several layers
Active Charcoal Filters
Essential equipment for a wine aging cabinet. The active charcoal filter is often placed on the cabinet rear wall. This enables outside air to circulate inside the cabinet and renew the air, allowing your wine bottles to « breathe », while eliminating from the air all impurities that could harm your wine: dust, odours, and other particles.
Low energy LED lighting provides a soft light that will not harm your wines.g
Vibration Proofing System
A system of cushions placed under the compressor eliminate the vibration that occurs when the compressor starts up, or stops. This system is present on all La Sommelière wine cabinets.
The ideal humidity for a wine cabinet is between 50 and 80%. A humidity level below 50% will cause the top of the cork to dry out and retract, allowing air into the bottle. Conversely, too high humidity (over 80%) causes harmful odours and damages labels.
Glazed Door with anti-UV Treatment
Anti-UV treatment consisting of a film placed on the glass, prevents ultra-violet rays from entering and spoiling your wine. Wine exposed to excessive ultra-violet light can take on an unpleasant rancid taste referred to as "the flavour of light.".
