February 2, 2007, Newsletter Issue #55: The Ideal Wine Storage Temperature

Tip of the Week

The ideal wine storage temperature can ensure longevity of your fine wines while allowing them to age and mature at the optimum level. Wine cellars should be about 50 to 55 degrees, with relative humidity between 60 and 70 percent.

If you want to hold your wines is a type of "suspended animation," where they hardly age at all, the ideal temperature is about 45 degrees. This is a solution for some wines that may pass the point of good drinkability if they are stored much longer at the higher temperatures.

A good wine storage system will allow you to maintain your wines at the optimum temperature and humidity. That will ensure your collection lasts as long as it possibly can, and you'll always be drinking wine at its very peak of perfection.
