Storing red and white wine
- When storing a combination of red and white wines, we recommend storing same case wines together. For example red wine in the bottom zone and white wine in the upper zone.
- Depending on the number of wine bottles and functions selected, it may take 24 hours for the Wine Cabinet temperatures to stabilise.
- Not all wine stored will improve/mature over time. Some wine are best consumed at an early stage, while others have remarkable ageing capabilities. Do check with your wine merchant for more information.
