The Perfect Pour: Maintaining the Ideal Temperature and Humidity for Wine Storage with iMatrix Systems NEO-1D and Micro Gateway
Temperature and humidity control is crucial for the preservation and optimal enjoyment of wine. Whether you’re a homeowner with a small collection or a business owner with a large inventory, investing in a temperature and humidity monitoring system is a smart move.
The iMatrix Systems NEO-1D, paired with the Micro gateway, is the perfect solution for monitoring and maintaining the ideal conditions for wine storage. This system allows for real-time monitoring and notifications of temperature and humidity fluctuations, ensuring that your wine is stored at the perfect temperature and humidity level for each type of wine.
Proper wine storage is essential for maintaining the integrity and flavor of wine.
- Red wines, for example, should be stored at a temperature between 55-60°F and humidity between 60-70%.
- White wines, on the other hand, should be stored at a temperature between 45-50°F and humidity between 50-70%.
- Champagnes and sparkling wines should be stored at a temperature between 42-45°F and humidity between 60-70%.
It is important to note that temperature and humidity can fluctuate significantly from the floor to the ceiling of a room. According to research, the temperature at the ceiling can be as much as 5-6 degrees higher than the temperature at floor level. This, combined with the fact that humidity tends to be higher near the floor, highlights the importance of monitoring and controlling temperature and humidity levels throughout the entire storage space.
There are several signs that a wine may not have been stored properly. For example, if a wine’s cork is pushed out or the wine appears to have a darker color than it should, it may have been exposed to high temperatures. If a wine has a musty or moldy smell, it may have been stored in an area with high humidity.
Investing in the iMatrix Systems NEO-1D, paired with the Micro gateway, is an investment in the preservation and enjoyment of your wine collection. Don’t settle for less when it comes to your wine storage. The iMatrix Gateways enable all wireless sensor configuration, control, monitoring, and associated analytics to be managed through iMatrix’s proprietary and robust Cloud services.
