Vin Garde Volnay 176
The Volnay cabinets are equipped with 15 extendable shelves which slide out on telescopic rails so that you can gain access to the bottles at the back of the shelf. It also features a full tinted glass door which is UV protected to prevent any UV rays damaging the wine over long periods of time.
Dimmable LED lighting
The lighting on the Vin Garde cabinets is very good compared to most, all the Vin Garde range features two LED strips down either side of the cabinet and a ceiling light so the wine is illuminated very well, particularly when the shelves are pulled out so that you can read the labels clearly.
Once particularly useful feature is that the lighting is also dimmable so should the standard brightness to be too strong for the environment it is installed in, there are a few other settings available to tone down the brightness.
Wine Storage Compartment
The Volnay range is the highest of the Vin Garde range in terms of capacity with a maximum capacity of 176 Bordeaux bottles, which are all supported on individual shelves for each layer of bottles which means there is no stacking of bottles and allowing easy access to the wines. There is one display shelf at the top of the unit which can be moved around or move display shelves added at a later date.
The temperature can be set between 5 and 22°C, the compressor is mounted on vibration free bushes so there is no vibrations within the cabinet so the bottles will lie in perfect conditions. The cabinets are installed with a heating system also which means it can handle ambient temperatures as low as 0°C which makes it suitable for installation in a garage or outbuilding.
Installation of Vin Garde cabinets
Vin Garde wine fridges are only suitable to be used as freestanding units, they cannot be built into cabinetry. Freestanding coolers require 2-3 inches at the sides and rear, and 10-12 inches above for adequate ventilation.
Vin Garde Volnay Shelving
The Vin Garde units have specifically designed shelving so that they can accommodate a wider range of bottles - rather than using wood as the majority of the shelf, by using metal which is stronger and can be produced thinner than the wooden slats, it saves space.
