PRESERVE THE QUALITY AND VALUE OF YOUR WINE WITH PROPER STORAGE
Fine wines can get better with age, but they need to be treated properly. There are six important factors for fine wine storage. They can all be met with a wine cellar which will protect and make your wine last longer.
A wine cellar is for any wine lover, whether you are a seasoned collector or have just started to discover the wonderful world of wine.
Temperature. The colder the wine cellar is, the slower the aging of the wine and the warmer it is, the faster it ages. If kept in your closet or on a shelf in the living room it will age much faster than in a refrigerated wine cellar.
Stability of Temperature. You’ve heard of set it and forget it. Well that’s almost true with wine cellars; it is set it and maintain it. Fluctuations in temperature wreak havoc on wine. Wine is more like your retirement account, set it up and leave it alone.
Humidity. Wine cellar humidity is tricky. You need it humid enough as to not dry out the cork but dry enough not to have mold form in the wine cellar. Humidity between 60-80% should be a good balance.
Ventilation. It is important that other odorous items are not stored in the wine cellar and that it is free from odor. Sounds crazy but the cork is a breathable material and air can go into and out of the bottle making the wine pick up smells and tastes from these odors.
Darkness. Low-level lighting is ok for wine but the short wavelengths degrade the special flavors in a fine wine. Even though the wine is in a bottle that can protect it, don’t put it in direct sunlight.
Security. This can mean protection from theft, but it can also mean protection from breakage or even being disturbed too much.
