The innovative LED lighting guarantees the even illumination of the interior without UV exposure. Since minimal heat is generated by the LEDs, wines can be presented bathed in light over a prolonged period of time.
The high-performance PowerCooling system rapidly cools down freshly stored food and creates an even cooling temperature throughout the interior. A door contact switch turns the fan off when the door is opened.This saves valuable energy.
The audible door alarm alerts the user if the door has been open for longer than 60 seconds for safe protection of the food.
The child lock is programmed so as to prevent the appliance being inadvertently switched off.A symbol in the MagicEye indicates when the child lock is switched on.

The unit door and appliance door are firmly interconnected with the unit door being fixed directly onto the appliance door.
Wine storage cabinets
Wine storage cabinets provide similar conditions to wine cellars. A constant temperature prevails throughout the interior in these appliances. It can be set to between +5 °C and +20 °C as required. Wine storage cabinets are ideal for the long-term storage and maturing of wines. Depending on the set temperature, these appliances can however also store more ample stocks of wineat serving temperature. In the GrandCru and Vinothek series, Liebherr offers multi-temperature wine cabinets in different sizes and with different features.
Controllable temperature range
Constant storage temperatures are required to allow wines to mature to perfection. The ideal temperature for maturing is the same for all wines, whether red or white, and lies between +10°C and +12°C. The precision electronic control system combined with state-of-the-art climate technology ensures that the set temperatures in the interior are continuously maintained, even when the ambient temperature is subject to severe fluctuations.
Activated charcoal filter
Environmental odours can affect wines stored for longer periods.In the wine cabinets, perfect air quality is ensured through an easily-replaceable FreshAir activated charcoal filter.
Even slight vibrations can disturb the wine maturing process and prevent the tannins from settling. Specially developed, exceptionally low-vibration compressors in all the wine cabinets mean that the wine is optimally stored.
Maintaining the proper humidity is an important aspect for the storage of wines. In this way, corks remain supple and do not dry out. Wine should be stored in a horizontal position to keep the corks moist from the inside. With over 50 % air humidity, wine cabinets guarantee the perfect conditions. The air humidity can be controlled as required in the wine storage cabinets by pressing the ventilation button.
An integrated heater permits temperatures above the ambient temperature to be reached. This can be very important, for example to bring red wine to drinking temperature (approx. +18 °C).
Insulated glass door
Wine bottles are in most cases tinted because UV light has a damaging effect on wine maturation. However, the bottles alone are insufficient protection.In order to minimise the exposure to radiation, Liebherr wine cabinets feature special UV-resistant glass. In this way, stocks of wine can be protected and simultaneously stylishly showcased.
