Vaulted Cellars System

Kubus Weinkeller
ARCave® vaults are custom-made at the factory and installed in 2 - 3 hours on site. Argillaceous earth from our own plant is used for the manufacture of the special ARCave® vault clay bricks. Clay, the most natural building material on earth, has the capacity to regulate temperature and moisture. This creates the excellent microclimate in ARCave® vaults. Take advantage yourself of the benefits of natural clay cellars. Whether for private or commercial use, ARCave® has the ideal vault for you.

A cellar suitable for ageing wine must meet very strict criteria. There's simply too much half truths circulating with regard to proper wine cellaring. While we believe in a mix of active and passive cellars, ARCave can provide your builder with the best building materials to convert an existing basement into a fully functioning passive wine cellar. No one can beat the laws of physics and we make use of that to achieve ideal cellaring conditions. The science of matter and energy and of interactions between the two. We excel at this with regard to wine cellars. We gladly share our knowledge and experience of 35 years.
