Liebherr Expands Wine Refrigeration Line With New HW 8000 24-Inch Fully Integrated Wine Cabinet

A Kitchen Remodeling Must-Have, Liebherr Wine Cabinet Features A Sleek, Customizable Design

Miami, FL, May 2017 – Liebherr Appliances, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of premium refrigeration for more than 60 years, introduces its HW 8000 fully integrated 24-inch wine cabinet. With home remodeling on the rise and homeowners gravitating toward more personalization in the home, Liebherr offers diverse options in refrigeration that complement all kitchen styles from contemporary to traditional and transitional.

The new 24-inch wine cabinet blends in beautifully with any kitchen cabinetry for the ultimate dream kitchen, in combination with Liebherr refrigerators and freezers. The wine cabinet panels can be customized to match cabinetry heights of 70-, 80-, or 84-inches. Bottles are stored on sleek wooden shelves and the HW 8000 provides a sophisticated wine presentation with an attractive labeling system. The well-organized interior is illuminated with cool LED lighting and the refrigerator offers greater capacity and more storage flexibility with the ability to hold up to 80 bottles.

The engineering on the inside of a Liebherr appliance is every bit as sophisticated as the design on the outside. The HW 8000 features an insulated layer that allows the user to set different temperature zones within the unit, to ensure red and white wines are stored at the correct temperature. Interior features like SoftSystem automatically close the door, even when the door 3023870-127000is fully loaded, and a safety thermostat ensures the wine cabinet never reaches temperatures lower than 0° C / 32° F to prevent damaging stored wines.

“We are noticing a shift with consumers wanting to invest more in home remodeling projects and appliances that add value to their home,” says Josef Steigmiller, Divisional Director of the Refrigerators and Freezers Division of Liebherr USA, Co. “A wine refrigerator is a great addition to the home for wine enthusiasts that may not have the space for an entire wine cellar room, but appreciate fine wine and having quick access to chilled bottles when entertaining with family and friends.”

The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) recently conducted a survey that reported clean lines, built-ins, and contemporary-styled kitchens are the most popular among consumers. White and gray dominated color schemes and two-toned kitchens are gaining popularity. According to the American Institute of Architects' (AIA), homeowners are choosing to invest in improving their current home rather than relocate or purchase a new home. Mark Boud, Chief Economist at Metrostudy explains that “the current strength of the remodeling market can be attributed primarily to economics – low mortgage rates, strong existing home sales, the bull stock market run, good job gains, and now more recently, wage gains. Baby-boomers will continue retiring and aging in place as they have been, and Millennials will be increasingly maturing in their life stages... And, with housing affordability an issue in many markets across the country, Millennials will be more inclined to purchase older, more-affordable existing homes that will necessitate renovations. Demographics will matter greatly to remodeling over the next few years as the economic cycle matures.”
