wine cellar is an adapted refrigerator that allows us to keep the wine in optimal conditions. It should be noted that these special refrigerators have been designed with a special technology, designed to isolate the wine from certain important atmospheric factors . Like temperature and relative humidity.

In this sense, if you have maintained or are maintaining a makeshift cellar in your basement, you are making a big mistake. The middle cellar is not good enough to hold wine , because the temperature and humidity cannot be regulated.

How to keep the wine?

To store wine properly, there must be no light, no heat, and no humidity . Regulating the storage environment is essential to prevent the wine from evaporating, damaging the cork or giving it an oxidized taste.

The best temperature to store wine is between 12º and 16º in a cool and dark environment . Like the one provided by a wine cellar. Bottles should be stored on their sides and should not be moved or pushed in any way.

On the other hand, it could be said that vibration is the worst enemy of wine . That is why a wine cellar provides you with unique stability. You will not find other refrigerators on the market so discreet and functional.

The biggest mistakes in wine storage

Storing wine is not as simple as it seems. It is not a simple bottle, since it protects inside a unique product that is revalued over time. Therefore, taking care of your aging process is crucial .

Here are the main mistakes to avoid if you want to keep your wine in optimal condition. Inside or outside your wine cellar:

  • Place the wine on or near the refrigerator , range, or microwave.
  • Store a bottle of wine on or near a warmer .
  • Place the wine bottles upright .
  • Leave the bottles in an area with a lot of sunlight or incandescent light .
  • Store the bottles in an area with temperature fluctuations .

That is why a wine cellar is the ideal place to store wine and keep it fresh and in optimal condition for when you want to enjoy it. Atrévete your wine shop and enjoy good wine !
