Main Features & Benefits of Liebherr WS 14300 Wine Cabinet
The Liebherr WS 14300 is a 3-temperature-zone wine cabinet with a storage capacity of cc. 143 bottles of wine. It has 3 indepent temperature zones each with its own electronic control. You can set temperature of the 3 compartments in the range of 37ºF – 68ºF (3ºC – 20ºC).
Two touch button control panels are integrated in the cooler, one for the middle and upper compartment in the upper part of the unit and one for the lower compartment.
The 3 temperature zone is perfect for keeping wines at ready-to-serve temperature in 2 compartments and using the 3rd zone for storing red wines for a longer period. This freestanding cabinet by Liebherr doesn’t require you for renovating your kitchen in order to build the cabinet in. You can place this attractive wine cellar in your living room or entertainment room as a standalone unit.
Restaurants and/or wine bars will find that buying a Liebherr WS 14300 wine cellar is money well spent since the stylish cabinet with the finely illuminated wines will attract customers’ eye and tempt them to taste some of the wines with their meals.
There’s lock & key set so that the wine cabinet can be kept safely locked preventing unwanted access, which is necessary in a restaurant or bar, but even at home you might want to keep it locked.
Apart from precise temperature control the digital ventilation control ensures humidity level between 50% – 80% which is ideal when you store wine for a longer period of time (more than 1 year).
The quality of air inside the cabinet influences the maturing process. Three charcoal air filters are integrated in the cabinet that provide clean, dust- and odor-free air for the interiror of the wine cellar.
For maximum performance replace the filters once a year. Changing the filter is simple just follow the instructions in he instruction manual provided for the wine cabinet.

Note: the brightness of lighting will change in all 3 compartments.
