No connoisseur of fine wine should be without a dependable wine cooler – even when they’re not on dry land. A Sub-Zero wine cooler will keep your wine at the optimum drinking temperature so that you can enjoy your favorite vintage as you gaze out over the water from the deck of your boat. Like any other type of refrigeration unit, wine coolers require semi-regular maintenance to remain in optimum condition. Fortunately, tending to your wine cooler requires minimal time and effort on your part. Don’t risk losing your collection – perform the following upkeep tasks on a regular basis.
When stocking the wine cooler on your boat, be careful not to overload the shelves. If you have a large collection, it may be easier to store most of it in your basement or home wine cooler, and only bring a small selection of choice wines on your boating trip. Overloading can put a lot of stress on the shelves, and can also cause uneven temperature –which can damage your wine collection and your cooler. Be sure to refer to your owner’s manual for the storage capacity of your unit. If your wine collection exceeds the capacity of your wine cooler, you may want to invest in a larger model, or split it between two units.
Stick to a Cleaning Schedule
Keeping your wine cooler clean will prevent odors from seeping into your wine through the corks. Every six months, or when you notice that the cooler is dirty, unplug your unit, remove the wine and shelving, and wipe everything down with a dampened cloth and mild soap. Thoroughly remove any remaining soap with a damp towel and dry with a soft cloth or paper towel.
