The ideal humidity level for a wine cellar is between 50 and 80%. If the atmosphere is too dry (i.e. humidity is below 50%) corks can dry out, letting air into the bottles and accelerating oxidation. Conversely, high humidity can cause harmful odors to develop, and damage labels.

French Corner Cellars wine cabinets ensure the right level of humidity is kept constant. Once moistened, lava stones are used to regularly release just the right amount of humidity in your wine cellar. Also, built-in humidity sensors allow you to easily monitor and control humidity levels. Digital thermometers/hygrometers are also available as accessories.
