Liebherr is known for the invention of the tower crane and starting as a small construction firm. In 1949, Hans Liebherr managed his parents’ building firm in South Germany recognising that there is a need for tools and machinery in the building industry and domestic construction. Together with design engineers and tradesmen, he develops the first mobile tower crane in 1949. As more successful models followed the construction company turned into a manufacturer of construction machines.
In 1954 the company went from construction machinery to refrigerators. Hans learned about a refrigerator-making factor that was for sale. He examined the products, sales figures and markets and recognised the enormous potential of appliances. He decided to not buy the company but instead built his own production facility at the Ochsenhausen site in Southern Germany.
Below is the Henham project. Our client opted for a Liebherr wine cabinet to fit in with the kitchen design. We integrated this into the end of the island to make it easier for our client to grab that bottle of wine when entertaining or snuggling up on the sofa watching a film.
It is one of the smaller cabinets from Liebherr and is of a sleek design making it the perfect accompaniment to this beautiful handmade kitchen.
The sophisticated technology within the structure protects wine in a similar way to wine cellars. If your wine is properly stored, it will continue to develop its natural flavour in the bottle and, on reaching peak maturity, the wine will be deeper and more complex.
The award-winning design from these appliances offer timeless elegance and reflects the latest trends in interior design.
Wine Storage Cabinets
Liebherr wine cabinets are similar to a wine cellar. They consist of a constant interior temperature to facilitate optimal ageing of high-quality wines. They can be stored long-term with the temperature being set between +5°C and +20°C, meaning a large number of wine bottles can be kept at their perfect serving temperature. These wine storage cabinets are available in several sizes with a variety of features making them the perfect accompaniment to a handmade kitchen.
GrandCru wine units have impressive high-quality features within, with a variety of models to choose from which are individually tailored to your own needs and the amount of space you have available. The largest model can store 253 Bordeaux bottles, whilst the smallest unit has space for 12 Bordeaux bottles.
Vinothek wine cabinets are available with a variety of useful features and several different sizes. The largest unit holds 200 Bordeaux bottles and the smallest storing 66 Bordeaux bottles.
Multi-Temperature Wine Cabinets
Multi-temperature wine storage cabinets are a great choice for anyone who likes to open an impromptu bottle of wine. They can store a selection of different types of wine, each at their own serving temperature. Depending on the model you choose, this is made possible either through the establishment of stratified temperature zones or by the presence of separate, individually controlled wine safes.
The ideal serving temperature varies according to each type of wine, and also to personal preference, accompanying dishes and the time of year. A glass of red wine is normally enjoyed at a warmer temperature than a glass of white wine and the aroma and flavour of a sparkling wine/champagne emerge fully when they are nicely chilled.
Vinidor wine units feature two or three wine safes, which can be individual and set to between +5°C and +20°C. This allows you to store red wine, white wine and champagne all at their perfect serving temperature, all at the same time. They also offer conditions for long-term wine storage.
Vinothek wine cabinets have a specialised climate control system that is used to achieve stratified temperature conditions. Red wine can be stored +18°C in the upper section of the cabinet, whilst the lower section, with a temperature of +5°C, is perfect for sparkling wine or champagne. The middle section is ideal for storing white wine at it’s ideal serving temperature.
