Liebherr are a market leading manufacturer and produce some of the highest quality wine cabinets in Europe. The GRANDCRU range is the long term storage side to Liebherr's range of wine cabinets. Specifically designed with storage in mind, the reliability and efficiency of these models is what distinguishes them throughout Europe.
The Liebherr Grandcru WKT5552 is the largest single temperature zone wine cabinet that Liebherr manufacture. With a fully UV treated glass door, the WKT5552 will protect your wines from any UV damage. Equipped with a charcoal filter and an anti vibration system, the Liebherr Grandcru units are some of the most popular long term storage cabinets available on the market today. They are also equipped with internal heating which makes them suitable for use in garages or colder rooms as they have the equipment to raise the internal temperature as required.
The WKT 5552 has a capacity of 253 Bordeaux bottles which are stored on 6 beech wood shelves, which can be moved around to cater for differing bottle shapes. The interior also features low heat white LED lighting and a charcoal filter to ensure fresh air is introduced into the wine cabinet.
The aesthetics of this model is what sets it apart from other wine cabinets, a full Terra coating which is something different to the standard black or stainless steel creates a finish that exudes quality.

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.
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.

There are two components to total shipping time for orders:
Once you place an order, we must process it and contact the shipping company to pick up the order from one of our warehouses.
Once the shipping company picks up the order, they must deliver it.
Most orders placed before 12 pm GMT will be processed same day by our warehouse. Orders placed after 12 pm GMT will be processed the next business day.
Time To Ship: We list the average time it takes products to ship on every product. Some products do ship more quickly than others, due to order volume, inventory status, and the efficiency of the warehouse shipping the product. You will be contacted by the logistics company for your delivery day & time slot.
To track your order please contact us directly, or the courier.
Time In Transit:
From the date of shipment, delivery rarely takes more than 5 - 10 business days to reach its destination.
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.
Unsuccessful Deliveries: 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 doorstep not be accessible. 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.
Freestanding wine coolers are designed to stand alone and not be built in to any cabinetry at all, we recommend a minimum ventilation space of 3-5 inches around the sides and rear of the unit. Do not install a freestanding unit under a counter top.
Thermoelectric wine coolers should never be built into cabinetry or have the ventilation limited in any way. They are designed to sit on the floor or smaller units are perfect for installation on a counter top.
