Wine Storage

BergkelderIf you are serious about your wine, then proper wine storage is key. Here are a few tips and tricks to keep in mind:

There are three important things to remember before selecting a proper wine storage area: location, location, location. Wines are fragile and need certain conditions to give them a chance of surviving.

Temperature

This is probably the most important factor to consider. Suggested wine storage temperature is 50F to 60F. Maintaining that temperature in your house would probably freeze you to death and substantially increase your energy bills.

Even if you can’t achieve those temperature goals, we recommend you find the coolest closet in your house or apartment, place a thermometer inside and check it once in the morning, again at midday, and finally at night. Compare them and see how consistent they are relative to each other.

More than anything, wine needs a consistent temperature to mature properly. If, for instance, the temperature in the morning is 68F, midday is 78F and at night 80F+ then this may present a problem and you may need to seek another place. If, however, the temperature stays pretty consistently in the 60s, then you’ve found a good location.
