VIP180 Multi-temperature wine cellar
The VIP180 wine cellar is a wine conditioning or ageing cellar and can be used to store up to 195 bottles* in the standard configuration. The attractive VIP180 blends in stylishly with the interior of your home or restaurant. Its soft lighting has proven very popular with our customers as it emits a soft blue light to further showcase the bottles within.
Manufactured in Europe, this wine cellar is also available as a 160-bottle-capacity version (see model VIP150).
Key features of the VIP180
The VIP180 cellar boasts an array of features:
- A glass door of understated elegance for a highly stylish visual effect;
- LED lighting to showcase your bottles;
- 6 solid oak fixed shelves included;
- 4 digital thermometers;
- 1 active charcoal filter to neutralise odours and purify the air;
- Excellent cold air distribution;
- 1 visual and audible temperature alarm ensuring a prompt warning in the event of fluctuation;
- The Big Chill security option to prevent your bottles from freezing should the external temperature fall between 5°C and 0°C.
Wine cellar with 6 temperature zones
The VIP180 cellar is a multi-temperature cellar. Depending on your settings, the wine cellar can offer up to 6 different temperature zones! Essential if you wish to store red wine along with white wine, rosé and even champagne.
This means that if you set the minimum temperature at the bottom of the cellar and the maximum at the top, the difference between the two is split automatically to provide you with 6 different temperature zones in the same cellar.
On the other hand, if you prefer a single uniform temperature in your wine cellar, then simply select the same temperature for the top and bottom of the appliance.
Perfectly secure wine storage in your home
The Prestige range offers high performance features and lets you store your wines and grape varieties with confidence. For this, the VIP180 wine cellar includes a number of substantial security features:
- Compressor security: to protect your wine from extreme cold. In the event of malfunction, the thermostat automatically shuts down the compressor. The temperature cannot drop below room temperature;
- Visual and audible temperature alarm;
- Lock to place your investment under lock and key.
