The Best Way To Preserve Wine

wine preservation banner

I want you all to imagine you are sitting in a nice and cozy place where you are facing a beautiful view of the city. The room temperature and atmosphere is very calming; all that you need, after one of the many busy days you've had. Imagine yourself being so grateful to the glass of wine that is in your hand which is warming your soul with its fruitfulness and intellectually satisfying taste. Suddenly, a bulb lights in your head and you start thinking what it feels like to have this wine in the comfort of your home whenever you want.

The health benefits of drinking wine are many. Studies have shown that moderate wine drinking can lower risk of heart disease, reduce risk of type 2 diabetes, lowers risk of stroke, cuts risks of cataracts and slows brain decline etc. There are hundreds of other articles written about health benefits of wine, but here I will be informing you about ways to preserve your wine so you can get the full benefits of it.

Science explains the need for proper storage of wine and the wine experts and collectors confirm it. Proper storage requires the exact knowledge that I'm going to provide you in this article. First, I would like you to understand that no two wines can taste the same even if they are produced by the same company and made with the same ingredients. How you store your wine plays a significant role in how it tastes. It is important to keep in mind that wines that stored properly will have a preferable aroma and balanced acidity, sweetness, fruitiness and tannin-ness.

First, find out exactly what kind of wine you like and how you prefer to have it. Some people like maturing wine and some people prefer aging. You can store your wines depending on what kind you prefer.

Wine Temperature

Temperature

It is very important to avoid extreme temperatures at all costs. The wine aging process accelerates if the temperature is above 59 degrees Fahrenheit, and the wine aging process will slow down if it is stored below 48 degrees Fahrenheit. That is why it is highly recommend to store wines in between 54 to 57 degrees Fahrenheit.

Dual Temperature Zones

Dual Temperature Zone

As mentioned earlier, it is very important to keep the wine in a right temperature and also, every wine is different and tastes the best if it is kept at its preferred temperature. Red and White wines are totally live in two worlds and for them to survive they must be kept in two different temperature. That is why owning a wine cooler with dual temperature zone can help you to preserve you wines.

Darkness Wine

Darkness

Ultraviolet rays can impact your wine. Long term exposure to UV light can destroy tannins in wine. That is why it is very important to protect your wines with solid or glass doors that are treated to filter UV rays. Use of LED lighting is highly recommended to minimize the light and the heat.

Wine Humidity

Humidity

Wine tends to evaporate and oxidize when the corks dry out in a too dry environment. But if it is placed in a too humid environment, it can encourage the growth of mold and mildew. A relative humidity of 60-65% is ideal for long term wine storage.

Wine Odor

Odor

External odor can affect the preservation of your wine. If you are storing your wines in your cellar then you must have a proven ventilation system and components which can prevent odors from affecting your wine bottles.

Wine Vibrations

Vibrations

It is proven that vibrations tend to ruin wine. Apparently, vibration will prevent wine from forming lees sediment which forms during the fermentation. Lees sediment is dead yeast cell that helps to develop more character and complexity, but if the mixture is handled incorrectly it can release not so favorable flavors. That is why it is very important to eliminate any type of vibration from the place where you store your wines.

How to do all of this:

If you are planning to start your own wine collection, the very first step that you should take is to purchase a reliable and highly functional wine cooler that will make your job so much easier. With a good wine cooler at home, you can easily relax and enjoy a glass of wine with your family and friends.
