Whether you're buying wine to drink today or weeks from today, a wine cooler is the best way to ensure that it travels in style. NorChill Coolers are made from the highest quality material and the latest wine cooler technology.
Most wines are sold in glass bottles and are sealed using a cork. Recently a growing number of wine producers have begun sealing their product with alternative closures such as screwcaps or synthetic plastic "corks."
When storing your wine it is recommended that you store it in a wine cellar. Wine cellars offer the opportunity to protect alcoholic beverages from potentially harmful external influences, providing darkness and a constant temperature. Wine is a natural, perishable food product. Left exposed to heat, light, vibration or fluctuations in temperature and humidity, all types of wine, including red, white, sparkling, and fortified, can spoil. When properly stored, wines not only maintain their quality but many actually improve in aroma, flavor, and complexity as they mature.
When your ready to drink your wine, remove it from the cellar and cool it as per the temperature guide below; a NorChill Cooler can ensure the proper temperature.
