Humidity control in wine cellars plays a major role during the production, maturation and storage of wine and other beverages in wooden barrels.
Wine barrels safe-guard the main asset of a winery – the wine itself. The wooden walls of dry, non-humidified barrels will draw liquid from inside it up through the small crevices to the outer surface where it evaporates. Over time, this leads to a significant amount of product loss. For example, a 225L wine barrel can lose 10-15% of the wine volume over one year. A professional humidification of the barrel room allows the barrel wood to absorb water-vapor, the crevices fill out and loss of wine is prevented. A well-kept barrel room is therefore cool, usually around 57-60°F and humidified at about 75% - 80% rH.
Please note: this unit comes with a bare cord so it can be hard wired to a controller. Otherwise we recommend attaching a 110V male plug and using it with the Inkbird Digital Humidity Controller.
