September 26, 2008, Newsletter Issue #140: The Ideal Wine Cellar Environment

Tip of the Week

The ideal wine cellar environment is about 50 to 55 degrees. However, if you want to hold wines in their current state without adding to the aging process, you may want to hold them as low as 45 degrees. Temperature is important, but so is humidity.

The ideal relative humidity in a cellar is 60 to 70 percent. This high humidity helps keep moisture inside the wine bottle, rather than allowing it to eventually travel into the cork and ultimately evaporate. Thus, especially if you live in a low-humidity area, your cooling system should include a humidifier to add much-needed moisture to your cellar environment.
