Every connoisseur of wine knows that it is not the same to taste a good caldo wine in a crystal glass than in non-crystal one (no one would think of tasting a Sicilian Vega in a plastic cup), because although the difference is not so dramatic, it is important. Wine is to be always tasted in crystal glass. Another important thing in the glass is its design. Each wine has a glass design best suited to its olfactory and gustatory nuances, an appropriate design in the right wine accentuates the harmony of the wine, “disguising” any eventual defects.
If you are a bit of a sybarite, even if you don’t admit it, you will agree that we all prefer to taste a good wine in a glass with a carved, polished and ultra-fine rim rather than the rounded and thick “factory” type.
Remember to taste red wines in rather large glasses to capture all their nuances of aroma, flavor, body… and smaller or medium-sized glasses for white wines (although lately large glasses are becoming fashionable for high quality whites).
In Caveduke, we know that a wine just taken out of one of our wine cabinets at its ideal temperature, decanted if possible in a good decanter and served in a riedel glass is the best way to achieve perfection.We can only give the user a score of 10 for his wise choice of all the means to get the maximum “juice” out of his wines and in particular his wine cabinet.
On this page we will answer questions that our customers ask us when they want to buy a wine cabinet. Although this is not an exhaustive list, it provides clear advice on the aspects to take into account when purchasing a wine cabinet. If after reading these Q&A you still have questions for us, please send us your query through our contact form or call us at 93 562 51 11.
When is it advisable to purchase a refrigerated wine cabinet for the proper preservation of my wines? If your home does not have an area capable of maintaining a stable temperature between 10ºC and 18ºC throughout the year, you must have equipment capable of performing this function. A refrigerated wine cabinet or cellar is a refrigerated cabinet designed to keep bottles of wine at the correct temperature: by means of a thermostatically controlled refrigeration system, this appliance keeps the interior cool and allows you to regulate the degree of cooling of the wine.
When should I purchase a refrigerated wine cabinet with a double hot-cold circuit?
Cuando la temperatura de una estancia se sitúa por debajo de los 10ºC, una vinoteca de frío pierde su funcionalidad: dado que enfría, no puede elevar su temperatura interior hasta la temperatura de referencia asignada.
Para solventar esta contingencia, las vinotecas con doble circuito de frío-calor disponen de un sistema que permite enfriar y calentar su interior hasta alcanzar la temperatura de referencia. Un ejemplo, si la habitación se encuentra a 5ºC y la temperatura de referencia es de 12ºC, la vinoteca calentará su interior hasta alcanzar dicha temperatura; y a la inversa, si la temperatura de la habitación fuera de 20ºC, la vinoteca actuará enfriando su interior hasta alcanzar los 12ºC de referencia.
Should I avoid running my refrigerated wine cellar with thermoelectric or peltier systems?
The expert advice we can give you is to discard these cooling systems. Our years of experience in marketing and manufacturing climate-controlled wine cabinets have shown us that these systems, for the most part, may be suitable in cool environments, but in hot environments they are totally ineffective, especially in summer.
Is it necessary to maintain a certain humidity level inside my wine cabinet?
It depends on how long you’d like to keep and store your wine. If you plan to keep your wine for a long time, the answer is yes. Although there are experts who argue that this is not necessary, especially if the stopper is synthetic, at Caveduke we are of the “old school” and advise maintaining an adequate degree of humidity inside the wine cabinet, in order to prevent the cork from drying out and facilitating the entry of oxygen into the wine.
What is better, to acquire a refrigerated cellar or to climatise a space?
Generally, a refrigerated cellar for up to 1,000 bottles is more cost-effective and economical than fitting out an entire space, such as a room. Above this figure, we recommend that the space be equipped with air conditioners specially designed for this purpose.
Never use air conditioners intended for cooling common rooms, as they do not generate humid cold and are not capable of cooling an entire room below 14ºC.
When should I order a customized climate-controlled wine cabinet?
If you do not have an appropriate space for housing the climatised cabinet you need, the best thing to do is to adapt it to the dimensions you have available. Contact us and we will study your case. In Caveduke we are specialists in the design of custom-made wine cabinets.
What maintenance do they require?
There are many on the market that require regular maintenance, but we advise against this type of device. We understand that users need to feel free to carry out periodic tasks and unnecessary maintenance expenses.
If your needs include having storage and service temperatures in a single wine cabinet, you need a multi-temperature wine cabinet. ALL wines evolve perfectly between 12ºC and 15ºC, even if their serving or tasting temperatures are different.
In our catalog we have models with two temperature levels in the same wine cabinet, which you can identify because its reference includes the prefix S2, such as the Avenue Wine model.
Is a wine cabinet the same as a wine refrigerator?
No, it is not the same thing. Our need to conveniently store wine in a wine cabinet should never lead us to make the mistake of storing them in a “wine refrigerator”, as this type of appliance is usually characterized by a high level of vibration and a lack of humidity control inside, two factors that seriously damage the evolution of the wine.
In a relatively short time, the vibrations break down the particles in the wine and impoverish its flavor, causing it to taste like an oxidized wine.
On the other hand, the lack of humidity seriously damages the condition of the cork that closes the wine bottle and ends up giving way to oxygen, which penetrates and ends up oxidizing the wine, spoiling it, something that must be avoided at all costs.
Cheap wine cabinets are the fastest way to spoil your wine
Cheap wine cabinets are usually machines that work with thermoelectricity or peltier cells, which, if they are of low quality (normally, in cheap wine cabinets they are), do not have enough power to cool the bottles well, especially in summer, with the inside of these wine cabinets reaching over 20ºC, which seriously accelerates the evolution of the wine towards its deterioration.
These wine cabinets tend to last a short time. Their cooling equipment loses performance as it accumulates dust, which causes them to operate without interruption for long periods of time in an attempt to maintain the temperature, usually without success. So they end up “dying” within 2 years, approximately, coinciding with the expiration of the wine cabinet’s warranty.
For all these reasons, we always recommend wine cabinets of proven prestige, and of course, at this point we recommend CAVEDUKE®, our brand of luxury climatised wine cabinets, a benchmark in the sector and with an international presence for more than 15 years.
Don’t let a cheap wine cabinet spoil your wines. You will end up changing it for a better quality one. Opt for a quality wine cabinet from the first day and always demand a technical service in your area. This will ensure that, in the event of any incident, it will be resolved effectively and efficiently, so that your wines are not affected.
The distribution system included in Caveduke climatised wine cabinets is designed to make the most of all the interior space, creating a quantity-comfort ratio. To individuals as well as to professionals of the hotel and catering business and wine shops.
Wooden wine cabinet, a great choice for your private collection
The wooden wine cabinet is characterized by being a “usually” warm wine cabinet, which enhances the appearance of the room where it is located with a stately and sober appearance, they are wine cabinets destined in 70 percent of the cases to private homes where they require a specific environment so as not to clash with the rest of the furniture, since the wine cabinets of this format can “blend in” with the environment, being one more piece of furniture in the house. Wooden wine cabinets are also the quietest, including a built-in cooling system on the back, like a conventional household refrigerator, but with selected components to meet all the technical requirements for the storage of wine such as the absence of vibration and silence.
Steel wine cabinet, the trendy choice in design
Steel and glass wine cabinets are a real boom in the design sectors, which are authentic “fish tanks” for wine, making a model like our sky-glass or avenue wine, where the entire structure of the weight is supported by the tray, being the glass wine cabinet on all 4 sides. This gives wine storage an air of sophistication, an avant-garde and unseen touch, giving the impression that the wine is displayed in the window of an elegant jewelry store.
The steel wine cabinets can also be lacquered or painted with epoxy paint in any color or RAL color.
We use only the best quality steel and we offer the customer options in matte, satin or mirror steel. It is also possible to combine different steel, for example, we can make the trays in mirror stainless steel and the outer “front” in matte steel.
Glass wine cabinet, a step forward in standing out from the rest.
In Caveduke models with no frame all around, climalit glass or laminated glass is used. The rest of the sector usually uses a frame around the entire periphery of the door.

Every good wine lover always asks themselves the following question: how can I properly preserve my wines? If we want to obtain a good tasting of our wines over time, we must keep them in optimal conditions of humidity and temperature.
When we buy a wine, either in a physical or virtual store, the first thing we want to do is taste it, although this is not always the best option. Sometimes, in order to be able to taste a wine and obtain the maximum that can be expected from it, it must rest for a couple of years in the bottle, always under special conditions of temperature, humidity, vibration and light, such as those obtained in our Caveduke Wine Cabinets.
In order for the wine to rest peacefully for a long time, our private wine cabinet must offer temperature conditions between 12ºC and 16ºC, humidity between 60% and 70%, and a total absence of vibrations and ultraviolet rays. it is difficult to achieve these conditions throughout the year in our home so to solve this issue you can get a climatised wine cabinet or winery like the ones we offer in our catalogue.
In our Caveduke Wine Cabinets catalogue you will find the cabinet that meets your needs, whether technical, space or price. We have three ranges of wine cabinets:
All our wine cabinets combine the luxury and quality that your wines require in a single piece of furniture, all with the guarantee of the Caveduke and Caveduke brands.
Some good cava and champagne should always be served very cold, at a temperature of 4ºC, which is the ideal temperature to taste their flavour. To achieve and maintain this temperature, it is not enough to cool the bottle, but we must also keep the glass cold.
A simple way to achieve this is by putting the glasses in cold water with ice, but it is uncomfortable because they get wet and must dry, at least on the outside, a process during which the glass is heated again and there are traces of water inside that dilute lightly cava and champagne.
At Caveduke we are aware of this issue and to solve it we have expanded our product catalog with a series of ultra-freezers capable of cooling your glasses in 2 seconds, with a dry cold process that does not disturb the taste or smell of the drink, since it leaves the glass completely cold and dry.
Vinotecas pequeñas son aquellas cuya capacidad oscila entre cuatro y cincuenta botellas. Estas vinotecas funcionan en su mayor parte con el sistema de termoelectricidad, si bien recomendamos el uso de aquellas que funcionan con compresor, pues son más fiables a la hora de mantener la temperatura, especialmente en verano.
When choosing a wine cabinet to be placed in a small space, such as a recess in the kitchen, we must be clear about some issues if we want to avoid unfortunate unforeseen events.
The first issue to take into account is that the wine cabinet should not have hinges that protrude from the frame, as they would collide with the furniture or cabinets that the wine cabinet has next to it, which could prevent the door from opening. Another fundamental aspect is that its cooling system is prepared to support the little ventilation that is usually found at the rear of the wine cabinet, incorporating some type of grille at the rear of the machine that facilitates ventilation and, therefore, maintains inside the wine cabinet at the right temperature at all times. The three lines of Miniduke wine cabinets, both the small wine cabinets, as well as the medium wine cabinets, as well as the large wine cabinets, have these special characteristics. Contact our commercial department about the conditions of your space and the characteristics of our wine cabinets. Together we will find the wine cabinet model that best suits your needs and we will share with you the extensive experience accumulated over more than fifteen years we have been in the market.

Many people ask us about the concept of “wine cabinets”, well, it is nothing more than an American concept, as its name indicates, literally translated, it is a wine cabinet, a definition that is given by the storage and location of said wines, but which is not necessarily emphasizes its specific microclimate conditions for its conservation, relegating said word rather to a more or less luxurious piece of furniture where we will store wines, spirits and glasses, in the attached photograph you can see a piece of furniture specifically intended for said use, a wine cabinets.
The wine CABINET can have the aesthetics of wine cabinets, that is, it can be a piece of furniture, generally made of wood, suitable for a specific decoration and also offer a “storage” service for glasses and other utensils, but it also offers the specific microclimate for the storage of wines, a clear example. we would have it in the Legend model wine cabinet that combines the microclimate of wines with cupboards on both sides of it.
They are “first cousins” of the wine cabinets; they are called cigar cabinets or climatised cigar cabinets. They serve two essential purposes for the proper conservation of cigars: temperature, always around 18 degrees, and humidity, always around 70%. Cigars are more delicate than wine. Wine can stand a fluctuation in the conservation temperature from 12 to 15 degrees and its humidity from 50% to 75% and absolutely nothing happens. Cigars, on the other hand, will not tolerate that margin of oscillations.
Always remember that the ideal is 12 degrees and 60-70% humidity for the conservation of wine and 18 degrees and 70% humidity for cigars. High quality cigar cabinets include two controls: one for temperature and the other for humidity. The interior walls of the climatised cigar cabinets are recommended to be made of natural cedar, as as well as trays. They should never be varnished or this would automatically contaminate the smell and taste of cigars, making it unusable. Many people use their wine cabinet to store cigars and we are sorry to say that this does NOT work, as the humidity in a wine cabinet is not enough. In addition, 18 degrees is NOT the recommended temperature for wine, since the ideal temperature is 12-15 degrees for wine and 18 degrees for cigars, which means that one of the two products would not be at 100% of its optimum state. Always use climatised cigar cabinets including electronic humidifiers with a distilled water tank and avoid the typical sponges that are “professionally” worthless.
