One of the great joys of wine is being able to select a bottle from your own cellar, perhaps one that you’ve been storing for some years, draw the cork and enjoy it with friends. You can marvel at the changes brought on by maturity and, as a bonus, you can brag about the price you paid and congratulate yourself on picking up such a bargain!
However, wine is an ever-changing thing and how it is stored will directly affect how quickly and how well it ages!
Storing wine is very simple …
It requires a constant temperature, humidity, darkness, stillness and a well-ventilated and clean environment.
