Liebherr is synonymous with excellence and with state-of-the-art German technology, all our refrigerators and wine cabinets are built to last.
Still, it is not everyday that you get to see a vintage Liebherr product. Hence imagine our excitement when a big fan of Liebherr invited us over to check out the 27-year-old Liebherr wine cabinet sitting in her Singapore home! It was indeed an eye-opener to see this vintage beauty still functioning and so well-maintained over the years. Join us as we interview the owner, Mrs Roslyn Goh.
Q: Was this wine cabinet your own purchase or a gift to you?
A: I purchased it from Thailand in 1992. At that time, Liebherr’s appliances are not yet available in Singapore.
Q: When did you first hear about our brand?
A: I had a business contact who is a distributor of Liebherr Tower Cranes. I needed a wine cabinet and he told me that Liebherr also offers refrigerators and wine cabinets!
Q: What made you decide on this brand?
A: I liked the design and the quality feels good, so I bought it.
Q: Having owned this wine cabinet for 27 years, what are your thoughts about this product?
A: It has served its purpose well and is very reliable. In fact, we own two other larger Liebherr wine cabinets! They are not noisy and I am very happy with this brand.
Q: Have you ever had to arrange for servicing for this wine cabinet?
A: There was an issue with the thermostat about 10 years ago which required a replacement. In general it is very easy maintaining it.
Q: Have you ever recommended Liebherr to your friends and family?
A: Yes, and my son just bought one! He enjoys all kinds of wine, so he opted for the WTes 5872 that has 3 temperature zones.
Q: Do you use this wine cabinet more for storage or serving purposes?
A: This small model is meant for serving purposes. I have another large Liebherr wine cabinet that is meant for long-term storage and I try not to open it too often.
Q: What types of wine do you store in this wine cabinet most of the time?
A: I store mainly Old World wine from France, Italy, and Spain. Since I enjoy mostly red wine, I only needed single-temperature-zone wine cabinets.
