An ever-wider group of Hungarians are drinking high-quality wines, and at the same time they are also spending on the necessary wine drinking accessories. Vino Domus Kft. sells several types of wine tasting machines, equipment for wine storage rooms, wine refrigerators, professional corkscrews, wine aerators and other accessories, being the exclusive distributor of 11 brands. Managing director Ildikó Égető told our magazine that in the last few years wine lovers have also become their customers – formerly their main buyers were hotels, restaurants, bars and wine shops. Nowadays wine enthusiasts like to create the perfect conditions for enjoying their wines in their homes.

PROGAST is the importer of WMF professional wine accessories and SPIEGELAU glasses and decanters. Owner and managing director Bence Víg is of the opinion that a nice carafe or other wine accessories make an excellent gift. It is very important to keep in mind that wine accessories need to be not only stylish but practical as well. Ms Égető revealed that their most popular product is a French professional corkscrew, called LIGNEW, which offers simply the best price-value ratio. Another customer favourite is a vacuum cork and pump (a 2 in 1 product) available under the Oenophile brand name.

What about cellars and other wine storage rooms? In addition to wooden wine racks, today metal and stone shelves are also popular. As for wine dispensers, buyers take many aspects into consideration: the technology used, self-service function (wine card), machine size and design. Efficient energy use and long warranty periods also matter. In the last two years personalised wine accessories became more popular – logoed products, etc.

Vino Domus’ expert mentioned that some Hungarian restaurants and hotels are now also storing their wines where guests can see them, in cooled glass cabinets. From wine refrigerators those are the most popular which are divided into several sections, where the temperatures are different. Gábor Győrfi, trade marketing manager of Kávé & Hűtő Profi Kft. told us that his company is the official importer and distributor of Liebherr refrigerators. He revealed that in the wine refrigerator category sales were considerably higher this year than in the same period of 2016, in terms of both value and volume.

In the Liebherr portfolio everyone can find the wine the refrigerator that suits their needs the most. The most popular are the small ones that can be built in under the counter, have two temperature zones (one for white and one for red wines) and store 34 bottles. Vinothek wine storage cabinets are the perfect choice for those who are looking for a free-standing wine refrigerator. Liebherr models are energy saving, all of them are A or A+ models. In communication, Vino Domus prefers direct personal contact. They regularly participate in trade shows and wine events, presenting their full collection of products. Liebherr likes to communicate in trade magazines.Liebherr products are also presented at trade exhibitions, so that wine experts and enthusiasts who are looking for high quality can get to know them directly. //
