Some Tips For Long Term Wine Storage

When you’re interested in wine storage, you need to educate yourself on the factors that come into play when you want to get the right results. They are some extremely important things that you should ensure are in place for storage in a cellar.


  • Proper temperature is one of the most important things that you need to have in your cellar. Your wine won’t age properly if the temperature within your cellar is constantly moving up and down.


  • UV light is a HUGE no for a good cellar environment. This kind of light can speed up the aging process of your wine and thus, cause it to spoil the quality of it. Be wary of the lights you choose for inside your cellar.


  • Frequent vibration is another element that you want to make sure is not present in your wine cellar. Believe it or not, sometimes chemical reactions can happen because of these significant long term vibrations.


  • If the air in your cellar or storage area is too high, it can bring about mold and mildew; if it’s too low, it can make the bottle’s cork dry out. Unless your bottle have a screw cap closure, keep them lying down to ensure their corks stay moist. Just keep in mind that the humidity within your storage area should range between 50 to 80 percent.
