Many luxury homes incorporate wine cellars or other facilities for storing your chosen tipple. But, is it really the ideal conditions for storing those vintage bottles?
Here are some tips for ensuring that your burgeoning wine collection isn’t damaged by the lapse of time.
1. Temperature is probably the most important factor in securing your wine collection for the future. This should remain at a steady 11-12 degrees celsius for optimum maturation.
2. A degree of humidity is important in maintaining the cork’s integrity. A dry cork will shrink and deteriorate allowing the wine to oxidise.
3. Light can rapidly degrade wine so it’s important to keep bottles in dim conditions for most of the time.
