At what temperature should I keep my wines?

Temperature Guidelines for Wine Storage

Here are some basic temperature guidelines for wine storage.

  • Champagne and sparkling wine: 43-47° F
  • White blush, rosé, and dry wines: 46-57°
  • Light, airy red wine: 55° F
  • Deep, rich red wine: 59-66° F
Investing in a wine cellar means you have the freedom to customize the space to fit your ceiling height and wall lengths. It also means you'll need to factor in the cooling element to ensure your wines are at the best temperature. For instance, you might consider placing a cooled cabinet for the whites within the wine cellar.
