Excellent at maturing fine wine, the air within the wine cabinet is cool and pure thanks to the constant programmable temperature control and the active charcoal filter. The anti-vibration technology ensures the sediment remains undisturbed in the bottle. The regulated hygrometry ensures the correct humidity so as to not dry out any corks.

The wine cabinet is fitted with an audio and visual alarm to alert for any temperature fluctuations but the cabinet is fitted with a winter system so can cope with daily temperature fluctuations. The winter system allows this wine cabinet to be kept in colder rooms like garages or cellars.

The single temperature zone can be programmed between 5-20°C. This allows for long term storage of a range of different wines from finest Claret to white Burgundy at 12°C or a controlled temperature of your choice for a specific type of wine.

The La Sommeliere range is manufactured in Europe and there are a team of UK technicians to support your wine cabinet should you need assistance. This product comes with a 2 year warranty.

The CTV249 is adaptable to your home with reversible door, attachable wheels and adjustable feet.
