The exceptional properties of the best bottles of wine also greatly depend on correct humidity control. A very dry environment will cause the cork to crack, while correct humidity ensures the cork stays moist and elastic, preventing oxygen from entering and thus maintaining the wines’ quality. For these applications, Carel recommends humiSonic, fitted with a filter and a dedicated probe. The filter comprises a 50 μm mesh, is washable under running water, and guarantees product safety by preventing contact between the water and dust. The humidity set point is between 65/70% RH, while the temperature may vary depending on the type of wine stored. It may also be worth considering the use of demineralised water.
