There are three important factors to take into consideration when storing wine…
Wine must be kept at a consistent and cool temperature to ensure it matures properly without damage. The storage area should be between 50 – 60 degrees year round to protect your wine from extreme and fluctuating temperatures.
Corks require moderate humidity to function properly. Therefore, the storage space should be approximately 50 and 60 percent humidity to ensure the safety of your wine without compromising labels and boxes with excess moisture.
Ultraviolet light can ruin a good wine. So, make sure that as little light as possible reaches your investment.
