LOS ANGELES—Vinotemp International, a domestic producer of wine cooling units, is stepping into a new area of business with its Green Line series, which not only increases the level of fine wine protection but also involves consumers in protecting the environment while enjoying their wine.
This all becomes possible with thermoelectric technology that offers quiet, energy-efficient operation. The main advantage of thermoelectric technology is ecological cleanness. There are no chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) used that damage the ozone layer.
Another benefit of the wine cooling units is the absence of any moving parts (except fan). For that reason, they offer less vibration (a “merciless killer” of any wine), high reliability and require low maintenance over other types of cooling devices. Thermoelectric technology keeps temperature accuracy of +/- 0.1 degrees Celsius which is extremely useful for wine protection against another enemy: temperature fluctuation.
“It’s not just about protecting wine” says India Hynes, president of Vinotemp. “In the 21st century people have become more concerned about the environment. We are a large manufacturer of cooling units and our products are used all over the world, therefore it’s important that our products be environmentally friendly. The fact that this technology is simply better for storing wine is how we came to the decision to utilize this technology.”
Vinotemp’s Green Line includes countertop six-bottle, 12-bottle, 16-bottle and freestanding 21-bottle, 28-bottle and 32-bottle capacity units. All of the wine coolers are single-zone temperature, with exception of the dual-zone 21-bottle and split dual-zone 32-bottle unit.
All units are attractive wine cellars with black body, stainless-steel doors with double-paned glass, stainless-steel trim and handles. The key features of double-paned doors have already been proven in the construction industry: they have better insulation properties, better UV protection, and are easier to clean. This energy efficiency will lead to less electricity usage and savings in energy bills throughout the years.
