How do I choose my wine cellar?

Are you considering investing in a wine cellar, but don’t yet know what kind to choose?

Using the Climadiff Configurator, you can determine the best wine cellar for your requirements. Simply answer these basic questions, and we will find the models that correspond to your selection criteria.

Simple and easy to use, all it takes is a few clicks.

Where will you put the cellar?

Do you already know where in your home you wish to put your wine cellar? If it's your kitchen, carefully check the dimensions of the cellar and the opening direction of the door. If it’s your living room or a room where you spend a lot of time, the cellar’s appearance will be an important factor: you will want to ensure an attractive presentation of your bottles.

On the other hand, if you store it in an unheated room such as a garage, you will need to make sure that the model is capable of keeping your bottles at the perfect temperature, even in the winter!

How will you use your cellar?

The use of your cellar will depend on your wine-drinking requirements.
Is the wine for immediate consumption or do you intend to keep your bottles for several months or even years? Red, white, rosé, or champagne? Do you plan to age your best bottles (ageing cellar), to serve them at the right temperature (serving cellar) or a mixture of the two (multi-purpose cellar)?

The cellar's capacity

How many bottles do you want to store in your wine cellar? This is a simple yet essential question. On this basis alone, you can make a selection from among our various ranges.
If you wish to age your wines, we recommend opting for one of our larger ageing models, given that some of your bottles will take up space for several years.

Type of door

With a solid or glass door, the wine cellars can be adapted to fit in perfectly with any environment.
Solid doors ensure total darkness and so your wines will be able to age in the best conditions; these are called ageing cellars.
Glass doors enable you to display your finest bottles while protecting them from the UV light that is harmful to ageing. These are referred to as storage cellars.


Free-standing cellars do not require any significant floor preparation: they can be installed anywhere in your home (however, make sure the floor is level). Allow a 5 to 10 cm gap behind and around the sides of the cellar. Under-counter models can easily be installed in kitchens, directly on the floor.
Built-in cellars are designed for column installation in the modules that make up your kitchen.
