Wine storage cabinets - humidity control.

Steve_K | Mar 30, 2009 06:36 AM

I'm in the market for a wine cabinet, and I am in the lucky position of being able to buy wholesale.
The company I deal with carries most of the Liebherr range - and I'm looking at the WK2926 (119 bottle) and WK4126 (168 bottle).

Some of the top end models have humidity control - how much difference does this make to the long term ageing of wine?
I understand that humidity would stop the cork drying out, but surely having the bottles on their sides would keep the business end nicely soaked anyway...

I plan to keep bottles for between 2 and 25 years, based on what I have collected so far.
