Storing & Preserving Wine
A true wine enthusiast knows that proper preservation technique is tantamount to enjoying a fuller, more fulfilling wine taste. A wine patron will often take greater steps to preserve a more expensive bottle. However, taking the right precautions can make a $10 bottle of wine taste like $30. Adhering to a few tricks can make for better flavor and aroma of your wine.
  • Temperature maintenance is the first step in allowing your bottle to mature to its full potential. Most homes maintain a temperature of 70 degrees with a humidity of roughly 20-30%. Optimal wine storage temperatures call for 55-58 degrees with about 55-75% humidity. To replicate these ideal conditions, a proper cellar or wine refrigerator is recommended.
  • Keep your wine out of sunlight. UV rays are harmful to wine and give it an unpleasant cardboard taste and smell.
  • Keep your wine away from cupboards, cabinets and home refrigerators. The opening and shutting of cabinets and doors cause vibrations that disturb your wine and affect the taste.
  • Store bottles on their sides to keep their corks moist. (When a cork dries, it allows air in that will spoil your wine.) When using a rack, keep your white wine lower on the rack, as heat rises and red wine fairs better in higher temperatures.
  • For storing your wine in the short term, duplicate the conditions of longer-term preservation as best you can.
