HOW TO PROTECT YOUR WINE COLLECTION

If you are serious about your wine collection, you probably have put plenty of thought into the design of your dream cellar.  However—are you completely sure that it will preserve your coveted wine the way it’s supposed to?  Before getting consumed with aesthetics, you must know that the most crucial component of a wine storage room is its function.  Essentially, how you store your wine defines how it will taste later.

While the experts recommend a professional-grade storage situation, here are a few simple guidelines that should help keep your wine safe until the time comes to enjoy them.

Cool things down, but not too much.  Heat can singlehandedly destroy a fine wine.  70-degrees or more can actually “cook” the liquid, resulting in reduced aroma and flavor.  However, 45-degrees or cooler can dry out corks, which allows air to enter the bottles and damage the wine.  The average refrigerator temperature falls well before 45-degrees, so achieving an ideal wine cooling space requires expertise.  The ideal temperature should stay between 45-and-65-degrees.

Consistency is everything.  Rapid changes in temperature can not only result in cooked wine flavors, but also might create a friction that pushes out a cork, or creates seepage.  Temperature should be stable and steady.

Keep the lights down.  Both light and sunlight can age your wine.  UV-rays can pose problems due to degradation and premature aging, while household lights can fade labels and take away from the beauty of your bottles.

Avoid too much moving and shaking.  Some collectors believe that vibration has the potential to speed up chemical reactions within a bottle of liquid.  For example, vibrations resulting from electronic appliances might contribute to this theory.

Each home is different, therefore the eye and knowledge of a professional is paramount if you truly want to keep your wine collection in top-notch condition.  Cold Craft Inc. is a full-service heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration company, and can work with you to install and service wine cellar refrigeration.  You can call them at 888-447-0071 or visit www.ColdCraft.com.
