Sub-Zero Unveils Compact Wine Storage Unit - 315W Model reinforces company’s wine storage standards

Madison, Wis. (May 10, 2005) – Consumers may be seeing a little less of Sub-Zero Freezer Company this summer. The leading manufacturer of luxury residential refrigeration and wine storage units is adding a new, smaller model to its wine product line. Spanning 15 inches, the Model 315W will bring consumers wine cooling capabilities with the ability to fit into more compact spaces.

“Our new 315W unit offers customers more convenience and flexibility with entertaining,” said Jim Bakke, president and CEO of Sub-Zero Freezer Company and Wolf Appliance Company. “We are committed to giving our consumers what they want from kitchen appliances – including an innovative unit that can store wine wherever they choose to enjoy it.”

The 315W holds both red and white wine in a single compartment, with the capacity to hold up to 26 750-ml bottles. Inside, six natural cherrywood-faced, roller glide, wire shelves pull out to a three-quarter extension, allowing complete access to all bottles. Along with a quiet, smooth compressor, the sturdy shelves eliminate heavy vibrations, preserving wine’s delicate scent and flavor. A double-wall, tempered glass door blocks dangerous ultraviolet rays, protecting a wine’s color while showing off prized bottles.

The new built-in unit complements Sub-Zero’s 200 Series of undercounter refrigeration options. The compact size is ideal for apartments, a bar area, recreational room or any other area that incorporates counter space.

Available in Classic Stainless Steel or with overlay design, the 315W continues Sub-Zero’s commitment to versatile and personal design and comes with a full two-year warranty and five- and 12-year limited warranties.

Sub-Zero and Wine Storage

Sub-Zero set the standard for wine storage with the introduction of its newest refrigeration innovation in 1999. The company’s other wine storage units are part of the 400 Series, which offers four beautifully elegant and unique wine storage models designed to both keep wine in its optimum condition and showcase wine collections. Unique to Sub-Zero, each 400 Series unit includes two separate refrigeration compartments with independent temperature zones from 38 to 65 degrees and varying capacity from 46 to 147 bottles. In this way, the wine enthusiast can keep wines at their ideal temperatures—whether preparing to serve or storing the wines. Sub-Zero’s 400 Series ensures that bottle contents remain at a constant set temperature, protecting the taste and texture of the wine. Additional features ensuring the highest standard in wine storage include: nearly ideal humid environment, ultraviolet-resistant glass doors, smooth-running cooling systems and a service alert indicator. These units can also tie in to a home’s security system.
