Security is a crucial feature of wine cellar design, since the purpose of the space is to protect your wine collection. When it comes to wine, the top elements of security are achieved by providing an environment with the correct temperature, storage racks, etc. The security features discussed below also include the kind that keep unwanted guests from helping themselves to your wine collection, whether a thief or an uncle who partakes a bit too freely of O-be-joyful.

Theft Prevention

Your wine cellar door and the lock on it are the primary lines of defense against theft. The door also serves the dual purpose of protecting the unique environment that preserves wine. You can choose from a vast selection of fully customizable wine cellar doors. Materials include glass and the wood of your choice, along with the type of stain. Ornamental doors are available, as well. The doors should have a reliable lock and create an adequate seal that maintains the desired temperature and overall environment in the wine cellar. You can choose electronic locks or more traditional locks.

For more advanced monitoring of your wine cellar, you can have external sensors that activate video recordings of activity around your wine cellar or wine cabinet. Mobile features make it possible to check on your wine collection wherever you are.

Extra Layers of Security

Additional security inside your wine cellar can be achieved with a cabinet that locks. A cabinet can enhance wine cellar design while providing you with an extra measure of security for your finest, most expensive wines. Locksets should be requested when ordering wine cabinets.

You can also choose to have wine rack lockers installed above the wine racks, so that the most valuable vintages have additional security.

Environmental Threats

The environmental conditions in a wine cellar provide the best protection for the investment you’ve made in your wine collection. Why bother with locks if the wine isn’t kept in optimal conditions? Wine needs to be protected from sunlight and UV rays caused by certain types of lighting. The temperature range is very specific for wine, and continuous fluctuations in temperature must be eliminated. Wine cellar cooling units from top manufacturers

Systems are available that will send you an alert if the temperature in the wine cellar moves out of the set range.

5 Chic Wine Accessories

Great wine accessories are perfect additions to any party, and Rosehill Wine Cellars has a wonderful array of wine-related accoutrements to choose from. Wine bottle stoppers and pourers, drip rings, and wine thermometers are just a few. Sharing love of wine with fellow oenophiles is entertaining and can be memorable for everyone. The following are among the many wine accessories available at Rosehill.

1 – Wine Glass Cleaning Instruments

Wine glasses are essential components of serving and enjoying wine. They aren’t dishwasher-friendly, however, in that they often don’t fit properly. Wine lovers clean wine glasses with care. Part of the reason is to protect the investment made in the wine. For the discerning wine lover, soap can negatively impact the aroma and taste of wine. The following are the best ways to clean wine glasses:

  • Thoroughly rinse wine glasses with hot water
  • Use a miniscule drop of very mild detergent and rinse with hot water
  • Gently clean with washing soda, such as baking soda

The best way to dry wine glasses is to air-dry them upside down. Rosehill Wine Cellars offers a Wine Glass Rack Tree that holds up to 12 wine glasses as well as other glass cleaning wine  accessories.

2 – Wine Pouring for Large Format Bottles

VCanter wine pouring systems are available from Rosehill Wine Cellars. Various models are designed for particular large format wine bottles. The Methuselah, for example, holds the equivalent of eight standard wine bottles. There is also a Vcanter wine pouring system for the Goliath, a bottle of wine with contents equal to 36 regular wine bottles. These unique decanting cradles for large format wine bottles are made in Switzerland. Custom colour options include silver, copper, and 24k gold plating. Custom engraving is available, as well.

3 – Breathable Wine Glasses

Decanting of wine is accomplished in a variety of ways, such as in beautiful crystal decanters. One very chic approach to decanting is to serve wine glasses that have “Breathable Glass”.  Comparison tests show that the impact of using breathable wine glasses is dramatic when drinking high-quality wines.  For example, young white wines and red wines are typically best with a minimum of 30 minutes of aeration before drinking. With the “Breathable Glass”, you can drink the same wine immediately and fully enjoy the wine’s best characteristics. Rosehill Wine Cellars offers a range of Breathable / Sensis Plus crystal stemware.

4 – Wrap Wine Thermometer

Rosehill offers a Trudeau stainless steel Wrap Wine Thermometer with satin finish that can ensure wine is served at the perfect temperature. An LCD strip on the thermometer measures the temperature of the wine. Liquid crystal thermochromic ink changes to different colours at different temperatures. Around the perimeter, there is a list of various wines and their ideal serving temperatures. The thermometer is simple to use. When the bar lights up to the level you’re looking for, it’s time to serve the wine.
