Rosé the Summer Away in Style
by Vieng Oudom | Founder of Sommi Wine Cellars
As the mercury in Oregon has already hit 100 this summer, we thought it was the perfect time to debut our latest product line from Sommi Wine Cellars, the Brock Series Dual Wine Refrigerator.
Named for our friend, fellow wine connoisseur and interior design extraordinaire, Lori Brock of Brock Design Group, the new series is designed for double duty — protecting your wine collection in style while highlighting your home’s decor as a beautiful, heirloom-quality furniture piece.
With two separate fridge areas, each able to hold up to 18 bottles, the Brock is the perfect place to store everything from Albariño to Zinfandel, while the middle cabinet smartly stashes everything from stemware and openers to spirits and bubbles.
With its elegant lines and modern good looks our wine fridges are at home in any home, from the urban loft to the cul-de-sac classic.
As wine lovers, we believe in serving wines at their best. Here are some important things to consider when it comes to storing wines this summer:
- Avoid keeping wines in the kitchen fridge for too long (a couple weeks is fine, a couple months, not so much). Regular refrigerators are designed to protect and preserve food but are too dry for longer-term wine storage and can dry out corks.
- Heat and light can wreak havoc on your wines during hot summer days. An ideal temperature to store any wine you plan to keep for months or years is 55°, while 39° will achieve the perfect chill for those ready-to-serve Whites, Rosés and sparkling wines. A good wine fridge, like the Brock, should have settings in this range that you can select based on your collection and tastes.
- Summer is for stemware. While stemless glasses may seem like a great idea for a casual gathering, heat from your hands will take the frost right out of your Fumé Blanc.
