Tips to store wine correctly
Maintaining the wine bottles at the right
The temperature at which we keep our wine bottles is one of the main factors that we must take into consideration to avoid having our wines ruined. The ideal temperature is between 12 and 16 degrees: the temperature must be maintained constantly.
Control environmental humidity
Like the temperature, the humidity of the environment is a factor that we must control to obtain the optimum quality. The place we are going to choose to store our bottles must be fresh and its humidity must be between 70 and 80 percent so that the cork does not dry out or get wet.
Avoid exposing the wine to direct sunlight
Light is a factor that can accelerate the degradation of the wine if the bottle is directly exposed to light, both natural and artificial. It is essential that the place where we store our bottles is dark, since the incidence of light on them can cause chemical reactions such as oxidation of wine.
Isolation of strong odors
Keeping our bottles in a place with good ventilation will prevent the taste and aroma of our wines from being altered by external agents.
The position in which we place our wine bottles when storing it is essential to preserve its organoleptic characteristics. Therefore, it is interesting to always place our bottles horizontally. In this way we will ensure that the wine and the cork are in permanent contact and it does not dry, which would lose its elasticity and the closure of the bottle would no longer be airtight.
It is very important to know which wines are suitable for longer preservation and which are better to drink soon, since not all wines improve over time. In general, young wines should be drunk in the year they are harvested, the aging during the following five years and the reserves and large reserves can be preserved for about 10 or 15 years.
