As the former post on Ciematic.com, a good wine storage place or cellar should meet the conditions below:
Proper and stable temperature: The best temperature for wine is 15℃, and it should not be changed rapidly. To some wine and spirit varieties, a higher temperature does not have much bad influence. The key point is to keep the temperature stable.
Away from light: wine should be stored away from light, especially the white and rose wine in clear bottles. If the wine is under sunlight for a long time, its quality will be deteriorated irreversibly. And that’s why more people use LED for their wine storage at home.
Good ventilation: fresh air can bring out the peculiar smell and promote the wine aging. On the other hand, it’s not proper to put the fermented food, such as cheese beside the wine. Smell of these foods will also deteriorate the wine liquid.
70% humidity: the cork to wine is like the nose to human. If the environment is dry, the cork also gets dry and allow more oxygen getting in the bottle and make the aging process losing control. A 70% humidity keeps the corks work well.
