Climadiff are a French manufacturer of wine cabinets who have been producing their wine cabinets since the late 1990's, just after Eurocave started. They were amongst the first companies to enter into the industry and since then have developed a reputation for reliable and robust storage cabinets. Their focus is primarily on long term storage cabinets or ageing cabinets, however they do have a small range of freestanding and built in wine coolers for customers who do not require such large capacities or don't plan to keep their wines for 5 years or more.

Freestanding Ageing Wine Cabinet
The Climadiff brand new RESERVE RANGE - RESERVE 225 is a large capacity freestanding ageing wine cabinet which is designed for long term storage of wines. This wine cabinet guarantees the same ideal conditions offered by the best traditional underground cellars. The RESERVE 225 will age your wine effectively, allowing your collection to reach it's full flavour potential.
The exterior is manufactured from anthracite coal grey sheet metal which features a solid door to create complete darkness inside the cabinet and prevent any UV damage to keep your wines safe. 2 wheels at the back of the unit allow you to manoeuvre the cabinet easily and a thermometer with electronic display ensures you can keep a close eye on your wines at all times.
A freestanding wine cabinet should have 5-10cm of ventilation space around the sides and rear to ensure there is enough cool air to cool the compressor.
Interior and Capacity
The RESERVE 225 has a very high capacity of 216 Bordeaux bottles which is achieved by stacking the bottles on the 4 fixed wooden shelves that are supplied with the unit. A charcoal filter ensures no bad odours linger inside the wine cabinet and the inside of the cabinet is manufactured from black sheet metal which helps with humidity regulation.
Efficiency and Winter System for Garage use
Climadiff's ageing cabinets are highly energy efficient with the RESERVE 225 being rated as G for energy usage and they all feature the winter system which ensures peace of mind when installing in an insulated garage or outbuilding. The winter system features an internal heating element and a much thicker layer of insulation than usual which helps with temperature regulation. The RESERVE 225 is suitable for ambient temperatures of between 0 and 32°C and will maintain the internal temperature within +/-2°C which makes these units a great choice for customers looking for a long term storage cabinet.

A kerbside delivery is via a freight company and the wine cooler/wine wall will be delivered just to the kerbside so please make sure there are people on site to accept the goods. We strongly advise you check the goods before accepting - any signs of damage should be noted on the delivery note.
For kerbside deliveries, it is important to ensure the goods are checked before signing for the item. In the event the goods arrive damaged, please refuse delivery. Once the goods are signed for we can not guarantee the claim for damage will be accepted.

Signing for items at time of delivery
It is extremely important to check all items for damage before signing and accepting them. We will not be able to accept any claims for damaged items if you have signed the delivery paperwork and accepted goods.
Please take the following steps:
1. If our delivery team have not already done so, please take the item out of its packaging (do not just look at the packaging)
2. Inspect goods carefully (all the sides, corners and doors if applicable)
3. If there is no damage, accept and sign
4. If there is damage do not accept or sign (you can instead write Delivery refused as item damaged)
Once goods are signed for we cannot be held responsible for any damages and the customer is required to prove to us the damage was there before delivery.
Please make sure that anyone who might accept a delivery for you understands this, please also make sure the person who is signing for goods on your behalf is over 18 and if its your 'acceptor' you are obliged to make sure they know they have to inspect the goods properly before signing.
Customers are responsible for being present for their delivery as freight companies contact customers prior to their delivery day and may advise whether it is an AM/PM delivery. If a delivery fails because there is nobody available to receive it on the day it has been booked or delivery fails for a reason out of our control, then a re-delivery charge of £100 + VAT will be levied for the failure. The delivery will not be re-booked until this charge is paid.
We reserve the right to deliver to the door step or kerbside should the property not be accessible with a 2 person team and trolley. We request any access issues to be sent to us prior to delivery so we can make the necessary arrangements - should we not be informed of any stairs etc, we reserve the right to deliver to the kerbside or charge the unsuccessful delivery charge as noted above.
Northern Ireland & the Republic of Ireland information 🍀
Elite Wine has recently expanded back into Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland after the initial Brexit turmoil which forced us to stop sending goods across the water.
The good news is, we are now fully operational with a warehouse, logistics and servicing all supported across NI and ROI - You will probably have lots of queries about how our deliveries work here so below you will find a short guide.
There are not duties to pay as we customs clear all the goods when transferring to our Northern Ireland warehouse, VAT it charged at checkout so there is also no VAT to pay on delivery
We aim to deliver all units with 10-14 working days for stock items and units that we have to bring in within 3-4 weeks. We have bi-weekly transfers on a Friday from our mainland UK warehouse. The goods will arrive in Northern Ireland usually on a Monday and then you will receive a call from our logistics company to schedule a delivery date.
Our standard delivery is a 2 person delivery to the room of choice (ground floor), unpack, position and removal of packaging - if there are stairs involved or any tricky access points we will ask you send us photos before hand so we can ensure the delivery will go ok.
Our logistics company will offer you certain time slots for you to pick from and you will also receive an ETA via SMS on the evening/morning of delivery.
