4 Tips For Keeping Your Wines In Good Conditions

 

Wines are very sensitive, an optimal conservation is crucial if you want your bottles to age perfectly. Let’s see 4 advices that will help you keep your wines in good conditions.

 

Temperature

The temperature has to be constant and cool, between 10 and 14 degrees. Thermic chocs are to avoid since the alternance between cold and warm make the cork loose its elasticity. The cork then looses its efficiency and let the air oxidize the wine. The older the wine is, the more sensitive to oxidation and temperatures changes he becomes !

 

The Bottle

The bottle has to be lying down so the cork can remain in contact with the wine. You should avoid moving your bottles, indeed movements and vibrations are a wine’s alteration factor.

 

Hygrometry’s Rate

The Hygrometry’s Rate is another crucial factor to check, it has to be between 70% and 80%. This rate is justified by the cork, which act like a breathing mechanism for the bottle of wine. If the Hygrometry’s Rate is too low, the cork looses its elasticity causing risks of oxydation. On the other hand, if the rate is too high, there’s a risk of moisissures’ development, labels can be damaged, bad smells development…

 

Absence of Light

Our fourth and last advice is the total absence of light. Indeed, ultraviolets accelerate the wine’s reactions to oxydation, which rushes its evolution. It’s the reason why some winegrowers from Roussillon age their wines in glass tanks exposed to the sun. The couple heat + light allows the wine to develop an oxidative character, which could be seek in certain cases.

 

To put it in a nutshell, respect the temperatures criteria, the hygrometry’s rate, the absence of light and keep the bottle lying down and motionless. Yes, this could seem to be a hard work in order to keep your wines in good conservation but this is the price to pay if you want to make them age and experience and old wine at its apogee !
