July 18, 2008, Newsletter Issue #130: On its side or not?

Tip of the Week

On its side or not? Definitely, on its side. Here's why. Oxygen is the worst enemy to the wine inside the bottle. Most wines are sealed from the oxygen with pliable, expansive cork. If the cork dries out, it will shrink and possibly let oxygen enter the bottle and oxidize the wine. Storing wine on its side will keep the cork moist and maintain the protective seal for a long time.
