Here are some vital tips on storing these the right way.
- It is suggested that you store the wine in the dark. Basically sunlight can cause some chemical changes in the liquid and result in an unpleasant smell. Even with bottles that come with UV filters, it is best to cover the bottle with a cloth.
- Always store the corked wine bottles towards the sides. Storing them upright for prolonged periods can spoil the wine. Also it is easier to spot sediments by placing the bottle this way.
- Maintain a consistency in the temperature. Also, wines stored for a year or longer require refrigeration.
- Try and isolate the wine as it breathes. So anything that has a strong smell tends to penetrate through the cork and result in smelly wine.
- Avoid moving the wine too much. Bar cabinets for home is a perfect solution for this. You don’t have to move around the bottles too much. It also prevents a lot of vibration or other movements that affect the wine negatively.
