When it comes to sharing a meal with friends, a few gestures are as appreciated by the host as bringing a bottle of fine wine. This is true regardless of whether the host is an avid enthusiast, a seasoned connoisseur, or simply an occasional drinker.
In Italy, wine has always been synonymous with togetherness and is an essential part of the country's rich traditions in food, wine, and hospitality. However, proper wine storage at home can be challenging, particularly if one fails to take the necessary precautions for optimal long-term storage. This is why Smeg wine coolers are an excellent solution for storing wine in optimal conditions.
Made entirely in Italy, Smeg wine cabinets provide precise control over light, humidity, vibrations, and temperature, ensuring that each bottle is served in its best possible state.
In addition to their practical function for storing the finest wines, Smeg wine coolers are also elegant and stylish kitchen appliances that complement homes beautifully.
The addition of a new 60 cm design not only provides enhanced storage capacity, accommodating up to 29 Bordeaux bottles but also grants you the freedom to store your wine collection without constraints, ensuring that all your bottles, regardless of their diameters, can be accommodated in the wine cabinet.
When this new cabinet size is placed next to, above, or under a 60cm standard oven, it ensures that the kitchen lines, or the arrangement of cabinets and appliances, are visually balanced and aligned. This creates a cohesive look in the kitchen, as both the oven and the new cabinet size share the same dimensions and fit seamlessly together.
It also features dual temperature within the cabinet. There are two separate zones for setting the inner temperatures –, perfect for storing both white and red bottles of wine.
With a seamless blend of functionality and aesthetics, the new wine coolers are available in the Dolce, Linea, and Classic ranges, ensuring they complement various kitchen styles and meet diverse requirements.

Selecting the appropriate serving temperature is crucial for fully savouring wine whether it is being enjoyed with a meal, as an aperitif, or as a digestif. But how do you determine the ideal temperature? Here are some general guidelines for serving wine but you must also consider personal preference and the various factors related to the environment.
Semi-sparkling and sparkling wines: 7-10°C
White wines: 9-12°C
Rosé wines: 10-12°C
Young red wines: 14-17°C
Full-bodied red wines: 17-20°C
Having the correct tools is imperative for storing and serving wine at its finest. Selecting the appropriate glass, for instance, allows all the wine's aromas and flavours to be released for an impeccable pairing with food.
