June 27, 2008, Newsletter Issue #127: Oh, the Humidity...

Tip of the Week

Humidity plays an important role in a good wine cellar. Corks are most affected by the humidity. A dry cork allows oxygen to seem into the bottle and age the wine or change its flavor. Keep your wine cellarís humidity level at 70-75% to prevent corks drying out. In drier climates, such as the American Southwest, keep bowls of water in the cellar to help humidify the air. In other parts of the country where humidity is prevalent, remove excess humidity in your cellar by running fans. In either case, invest in a humidity gauge to keep in your cellar...and check it regularly.
