Preserving Vintage Bottles of Wine
All the good wines keep on improving with age. Well, that will not be the case, if you don’t store them in ideal conditions. Temperature, light, and humidity of the cellar must be kept in optimal situations to make sure everything is on track. You must be ready to invest in buying wine storage refrigerators. The features of such devices must be accurate and distinguished enough to provide all the necessary conditions.
Do It Like A Pro
After you have bought a refrigerator or converted a room into a cellar, you should find out all the relevant pieces of information. To begin with, the temperature of the storage area must be between 50-60 degrees Fahrenheit. It is the best temperature for most wines.
The relative humidity of the cellar or refrigerator must be maintained at similar levels at all times. Excessive fluctuations will have extensive adverse effects on all your wines. When you have invested so much money in the setup, you should avoid all such irrational risks. Maintaining a relative humidity less than eighty percent, but above sixty percent will give you optimum results.
Your cellar should remain dark at all times. Well, you can’t switch off the lights when you are trying to take out a bottle, but most of the times the room should be protected from light. All collectors are proud of their wine bottles.
Trying to show it off to guests and friends is natural. However, it will be smarter to avoid such a situation. And if you have to do it, then you should limit the time and frequency of exhibiting your collection. You should also make sure that you use suitable and appropriately-sized racks to keep your wines. You should never keep them in an upright position unless you will serve them soon.
