Wine lovers know that having a good knowledge of wines is only the first step towards complete enjoyment of this beverage. The other piece of the puzzle is the way we need to care for and store particular wines. There are ready solutions out there, but they may be out of average budgets. It is important to keep your win in a cool place, but the temperature should not be too low. Maintaining certain temperature that is constant is also critical and more important than any concerns over humidity.
- Make sure that your wine is kept in a room where the temperature is somewhere between 45 and 65 Fahrenheit.
- Try to avoid any major temperature swings as this can cause expansion and contraction of the liquid inside, which could push the cork out.
- Turn the lights off in your wine room so that the UV rays don’t age your wine.
“Don’t fret too much if your storage runs a couple degrees warmer, as long as you’re opening the bottles within a few years from their release.”
