Re: Condensation in Eurocave

A relative humidity of 50% to 70% is recognized as an adequate wine cellar humidity level, with 60% the ideal. Without ideal humidity, wine quality may be affected in a number of ways. When the humidity is higher than 70%, it will likely cause mold and degradation of the labels and glue.

Re: EuroCave versus Vino Temp Cooler unit - any thoughts or experience to determine?

William, Whatever you are thinking, get one size bigger ! That is the usual recommendations from all of us here ! Best of luck. I have 3 Eurocaves (6' X 3' X3' , one is a "Confort Duo")) plus a 60 bottle under counter U-line in kitchen and a walk-in refrigerated cellar underground. The Confort Duo (...

I’m going to the Palm in Bal Harbour on saturday. Summer special is for 2 people at $109, you get a 4lb lobster, two apps, and one side. Now if their corkage fee wasn’t $35, I’d be deliberating what to bring!

Jealous of your above “massacre”
4 lb each or share ?
