How should I store my wine

Ideally, a cellaring room is desirable that has the following attributes:

  • temperature control
  • UV filtered light
  • no vibration through floor or walls
  • humidity control (75% is ideal but this can be a challenge up north)
  • wine racks where the wine bottle lays on its side
  • lockable

Lacking the above amenities (like many of us) ... try the following:

  • try find an area where the temperature is relatively consistent (like a basement)
  • maybe a wine cooler where you can control temperature but not necessarily humidity
  • Use a rack (or wine cooler) where the wine bottle lays on its side
  • keep out of direct sunlight
