We receive many questions about storing wine. How to store your wines in the best way? All have not a wine cellar available. Below are some tips: You can buy special wine cabinets that are very decorative, but quite expensive. The alternative is the coldest place in the apartment / house where the temperature does not fluctuate too much. And yes, you can store wine without a perfect cellar, actually wine in a bottle are capable of much greater strain than previously thought.
The following parameters are for storage of wine:
Best storage temperature is 10-14 degrees. Higher temperatures do not make the wine undrinkable at once, but the maturation accelerated. When storage space is cooler than plus seven degrees, the development of the wine are more being very slow. Then you have to wait long for it to become mature. The hotter it is, the faster maturing wine. There is no scientific evidence that there is any difference in quality between a wine that has been stored in a cellar that is 13 degrees, compared with a wine that has been stored in a storage room that is 20 degrees. There are scientific tests show that it is first at a temperature of 30 degrees as the risk is great that the wine deteriorates. Wine can withstand temperature fluctuations, so there is no danger if the storage temperature is just a few degrees in the winter and around 20 in the summer. If, however, you aim to store wine for a very long time, perhaps 50-100 years, it can be good with a cool cellar. The optimum is a slow change between the highest and lowest temperature. Cellar temperature as cold as 6-10 degrees is not harmful to the wine, but it must not go down to minus degrees. If there are major differences between cold and heat you should be aware of the corks. They may occasionally shoot out of the bottle. The main thing to keep in mind is that cooling slows ripening and heat accelerates.

Since wine is not like bright light, the wines should be stored in the dark. Daylight and fluorescent light alters the wine's color to brown. The wine can also get a stale and dull taste of this. Therefore, avoid the wine being exposed to strong light or sunshine. Many red wines are capable of being eposed to light without problems, but many white wines can be destroyed if kept bright. Sparkling wines must be kept in the dark. Light can create a photochemical reaction in the wine, so that B vitamin is converted to hydrogen sulfide which smells like rotten eggs if kept bright.
It need not necessarily be damp in the cellar. Previously it was believed that the cork breathed so that the wine ripening. Therefore it was important to have a wet and humid cellar. But a real cork is completely sealed and will not let any oxygen go through. The development and aging of wine taking place in the bottle is without any contact with oxygen. Or rather, the small air pocket located between the cork and the wine will develop the wine. The humidity prevents the cork from drying, which in turn prevents the outer oxygen from affecting the wine. The wine should be stored horizontally so that the wine is in contact with the cork. In this way, does not dry the cork and the air does not penetrate. Could too much moisture be harmful? Yes, too wet cellar can actually be negative. Between the capsule and cork formed easily mold. With years can spores slowly look down through the cork, and eventually damage the wine. Humidity should average around 70% and not less than 60% in order to keep the cork in good condition over time. My experience says that mold can begin to grow at over 75% relative humidity for a long time.
It is important with good ventilation where you store the bottles. Bad odors can penetrate through the cork in the wine despite the closure. If keeping your wine in the refrigerator you should not have anything there that smell, like onions or cheese.
The wine must be kept still. One should not twist and turn on them as they do in the production of champagne. If you turn on the bottles or move the bottles then the possible precipitation developed could make the wine become cloudy. If a precipitate has been developed, let the bottle stand upright for a week, and decant before serving.
