Vibration Free Wine Captain

160-Bottle Capacity Wine Cellar
When you hear “Electrolux” what is the first thing that comes to mind? Vacuum Cleaners. Well while Americans are just getting re-acquainted with the brand, Europeans have known about the advances in this line for years.

Not only do they have a gorgeous collection of appliances, I am happy to report that they have introduced an Exclusive Absorption Cooling System for Wine Storage.

The absorption principle is a chemical process. It requires no motor or compressor so operation is completely silent and vibration free. Any oenophile knows that vibration and heat is the kiss of death to a good bottle of wine. My client has an extensive and shall I say expensive wine collection. For years he rented space from an off site wine storage facility . This is a man who takes his wine collection seriously. Now while we didn’t have the space to add a wine cellar on to the house, we made room in the kitchen design for a 24″ wide unit that holds 160 bottles.
A wine cellar without a motor or compressor? Who knew!
