Wine Cellar Lighting – A Comprehensive Guide to Choosing Light


July 3, 2024

Wine, a precious wine of time and terroir, is sensitive to harmful radiation such as ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) rays. Exposure to these rays accelerates the oxidization process of wine, causing it to lose its vibrant color, develop off-flavors, and even deteriorate in quality. Proper wine cellar lighting is essential, and it requires the use of fixtures that minimize or completely eliminate the production of UV and IR rays in order to protect this precious liquid.

Key Considerations for Choosing the Perfect Wine Cellar Lighting

Factors to carefully consider when choosing wine cellar light fixtures to ensure optimal ambiance and wine protection.

Color Temperature - Choose fixtures with a warm color temperature (approximately 3000K) to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Avoid cold color temperature fixtures, as they can make the wine cellar look too bright and cold.

Brightness - Adjust the brightness according to the size and purpose of the wine cellar. It is generally recommended to use 10-15 watts per square meter.

Beam angle - Select the appropriate beam angle to achieve the desired lighting effect. Wide beam angle fixtures are good for general illumination, while narrow beam angle fixtures can be used to focus on specific wine display areas.

Color Rendering Index (CRI) - Select fixtures with a high Color Rendering Index (CRI) (generally CRI > 80) to accurately render the color of wine labels and liquors. For example: TUBU Wine Cellar Tubular LED Tri-Proof Light.

Ingress Protection (IP) - As the wine cellar environment can be humid, it is recommended to choose fixtures with a higher ingress protection rating (e.g., IP65, IP67, IP69K) for longer life.

Style - Choose fixtures that match the overall style of the wine cellar. Common options include recessed lighting, pendants, track lighting and LED strips.
