Wine Cellar Humidifier
One of the biggest issues facing many wineries is how to minimize the amount of product lost during the aging process thanks to evaporation through the barrels. While many people will try to blame the temperature for the loss, it is actually the fault of humidity. Evaporation happens when the there isn’t enough moisture in the air and so it is taken from the wine itself. Installing a wine cellar humidifier at your winery will help retain more of your product.
In general, the humidity in a winery will ideally remain as close to 60 percent as possible, but fluctuations between 50–70 percent are acceptable in most situations. If the humidity is much higher, it is likely to cause mold and damage your storage area and wine bottles’ labels and glue. If the humidity is allowed to reach below 50 percent, it can result in evaporation or degradation of the wine. Plus, without a cork topper, it’s easy for the wine to spill. When the cork topper is compromised, it can fall into the wine, allowing evaporation to occur and for the wine to spoil.
Many people assume their cooling unit comes equipped to handle moisture control already, but they are mistaken. The best way to control the moisture in the room is through a specialized wine cellar humidifier. These are designed to release moisture into the air in particles that are small enough to evaporate before forming condensation on any exposed surfaces.
