HAPPY NATIONAL WINE DAY!
Here are a few tips for proper storage:
- Store wine in a cellar or electric wine cooler:
The best place for storage is in a cellar or electric wine cooler with fiberglass insulation to regulate temperature and protect against mold or damage to the label.
Keep wine away from areas that could generate temperature changes such as kitchens or laundry rooms. The ideal temperature range for wine storage is between 45-65 degrees Fahrenheit. Avoid arid environments that can dry out corks. Areas with 50-80 percent humidity are adequate for storage.
- Store bottles on their side to prevent the cork from drying out.
- Keep stored bottles away from light Sunlight can damage wine by aging it prematurely and household light bulbs can fade labels.
I like Talbott Pinot Noir. They have a few varieties, Diamond T, Sleepy Hollow, Logan and Kali Hart. I usually get the 2014 Logan Pinot for my weekends.
