Maintaining the correct relative humidity (RH) levels is fast becoming the standard for wineries. It allows modern wineries the opportunity to provide its customers with a consistently high quality wine.
The appropriate level of RH is allowing winery owners to reduce unnecessary losses from evaporation, effectively control ethanol content of wine and dramatically reduce the quantity needed during the “Topping Off” process in wine barrel storages.
Providing proper relative humidity for wine cellars is also very important. It helps the cork remain moist and airproof, which results in better wine quality.
