Transtherm Ermitage Glass Black Full Shelf #17035
Ermitage wine cabinets have 1 temperature zone that maintains ideal conditions from 43 to 64°F and 55%-80% RH for storing and chilling your wine collection.
We offer Ermitage wine cabinets with 14 adjustable rolling shelves (12 bottles per shelf) and 1 half shelf on the bottom. Using this configuration, the wine cabinet holds 182 bottles.
Placement Requirements: Ermitage wine cabinets require 3 inches of clearance behind the cabinets, as well as 2 inches of clearance on the sides and above the cabinets, and are designed to operate in environments ranging between 0-35°C/32-95°F . Transtherm cabinets use 120V / 60Hz power. Single cabinets require a 15-Amp circuit, while double cabinets require two (2) 15-amp circuits.

The walls of the Transtherm Ermitage cabinets are made of three successive thermal barriers. The internal walls have been upgraded to aluminum, and the exterior walls are reinforced at the corners by insulating sections, and injected with 4. 5cm high-density expanded foam to ensure optimal insulation.
Thermal Regulation: When the ambient temperature rises above the setpoint, a cold circuit, driven by a very slow cycle compressor mounted on silent-blocks, automatically comes into action. The cold circuit coil, made of aluminum, is within the aluminum back wall of the cabinet, for a better temperature distribution. When the amibient temperature drops below the setpoint, an electrical resistance, which is also within the back wall, will come into action and automatically increase the temperature.
Natural Ventilation: In order to avoid the mold phenomenon, which would generate bad odors and risk deteriorating the corks, the Transtherm Ermitage has natural permanent ventilation, based on the same principal as the thermal pump.
Absence of Vibration: Choosing slow and balanced compressors, as well as disassociating them from the cabinet's body, allows the elimination of all residual vibrations.
Thermal Pump: The thermal pump process, (a Transtherm exclusive), by reheating the condensation from the evaporator coils, recycles humid air in the cabinet and considerably increases the hygrometry value between 55% - 80%. This principle gives the cabinet natural ventilation and constant air circulation.
Electronic Temperature Control: Transtherm Ermitage cabinets are equipped with an electronic temperature regulation system that regulates the cold and hot circuits and maintains a maximum temperature variation of 2-3°F inside the wine cabinet.
Digital Display:All Transtherm cabinets are equipped with a temperature setting and control panel, featuring a LED display.

Pony Express Delivery Service

Word to the wise: don't be in a hurry to get the cabinet.
I ordered it and was charged $3,842.50 on 8/27/18, which included 1/2 price delivery. It's four weeks later and I have not heard a word about delivery.
If and when it arrives I will update this review.

I've had the Transtherm Ermitage fully-shelved with a glass door for about a month. It's been fantastic. First of all, each sliding shelf is roomy enough to store 12 bottles of Bordeaux, Barolo, Burgundy, etc., as long as the Burgundy bottles are not too, too oversized. I have a variety of Burgundy producers and they all seem to fit. Second, the unit is really silent. If it wasn't for an icon on the display that is shown when the compressor is running, I wouldn't have any idea if the compressor is running or not. Delivery went smoothly, too.
I suggest that, before you position the unit and load it up with bottles, remove the metal cage at the bottom rear of the unit and look to be sure that (1) the power cord is firmly plugged into the unit and (2) the drip tray is positioned in the bottom right (as you are looking at the back of the unit). Once you do this, just screw the metal cage back on. It will only take a couple of minutes.

Came as expected. Timely shipping and great shipping company. Seems to be a solid fridge. Runs very quiet. As expected if you have large pinot or cab bottles, you will not be able to maximize capacity. I managed to get about 150 bottles with a mixture of bottles.
This is a fine appliance, well made, handsome, and up to the task. I had numerous cases of wine moved from a prior residence and loaded the appliance immediately. It cooled to the desired temperature within hours, even though fully loaded. I have had previous experience with a Sub Zero, built into the kitchen cabinets and the performance of this unit is comparable, albeit much less pricey. Although this appliance is placed in the garage, I wanted it to look good, and it does. The ordering, tracking, and delivery were exceptionally easy and quick. The delivery men knew this product and how to unpack, place, and level the appliance. I could not be more pleased.
Elegant, Ideal, and in a Class of their Own!!!
My experiences and expectations we 100% blown away by the knowledgeable & friendly staff via telephone and in-person. Never once did I feel under-pressure or in a situation where I felt uneasy or uncomfortable. To the contrary, IWA worked with me to see what was my need and how to best suit/tailor/fit to it. Ultimately, I went with pricier selection but I have had zero doubts and never once experienced buyer's remorse! I truly love my Transtherm Ermitage and am very satisfied with this long-term investment. I thank everyone at IWA for such a pleasant and gratifying buying experience. I would definitely recommend and buy from your team again! Cheers
Fabulous Product, Fabulous Company
From the moment I first walked into this business I was treated with intelligence and respect. It is obvious that the owners are not only working hard to provide good products and service, but having a lot of fun doing it. They patiently worked with us as we dithered this way and that in selecting what matched our needs. In the end, a few features made this make and model stand out despite the higher cost: reputation of design and manufacture, quiet, adjustable shelving. It was a no-brainer to add the modestly-priced extended warranty. It now sits in our living room, I daresay rather elegantly, occasionally cycling on but almost never audible; the pull-out shelves make selection easy, even fun. The electronic display assures that storage tolerances are met. The sun may shine brightly into the room, the house may be cold in the winter and hot in the summer, but I am confident those special purchases we have placed carefully inside are only getting better.
