La Sommelière: ECELLAR innovation now available to kitchen professionals   

ECELLAR.BI150: French connectivity now available to kitchen designers

The only truly connected wine cellar in the world to be manufactured in France, the ECELLAR French wine cellar has been eagerly awaited by kitchen designers as a built-in/removable version. It is now available for kitchen networks keen to offer a genuine ageing cellar that can be integrated directly into the kitchen, with fully automated wine register management thanks to the partnership with Vivino®.

Voted “Grand prix de l’innovation 2022” at the Paris trade fair for its 185-bottle model, the ECELLAR is now available in a built-in/sealed version. The ECELLAR.BI150 is perfectly suited to today’s lifestyles, and its mixed layout means it can be installed in a living room or integrated into a kitchen. This new cellar, with a capacity of 149 bottles, is equipped with 11 intelligent shelves that autonomously detect bottles added to and removed from the cellar.

Connected to the Vinotag® application, the racks communicate in real time to keep an accurate record of the wines, instantly locate the exact position of a specific bottle, find places that are still available, be alerted to peak dates and stock levels and advise on the best position to ensure the best ageing of your wine thanks to ESommelier® technology. As an ageing cellar, the ECELLAR.BI150 is equipped with an anti-vibration system and a digital thermometer, and reproduces the conservation conditions of a natural cellar.

The iconic Apogée range, with remote control, has been enhanced with a new dual-zone temperature control system with telescopic shelves: the APOGEE185DZPRO dual-zone ageing and temperature control cellar. Designed to meet the needs of restaurants and offer quick access to every bottle, it features 14 sliding steel wire shelves for multiple bottle formats. This new vintage can preserve and enhance up to 184 bottles, divided into two independently adjustable temperature zones. Both the cellar and the wines are given pride of place, with the rounded, unusual case revealing a “label view” presentation of the wines through triple glazing with UV protection. As well as highlighting the wine selection, the “label view” presentation, coupled with LED side lighting, makes it easy to identify the bottles. In terms of use, the cellar offers a number of options: temperature control or ageing, the choice is left to the owner.

Finally, like the rest of the Apogée range, the cellar offers a remote control function, so you can use the Vinotag® app to control the parameters of your wine cellar (temperature, lighting, alarms) remotely and at any time, from your smartphone.
