WINE STORAGE GUIDE

The ideal temperature for storing red or white wines is 55°F, with humidity
between 60% and 75% RH.
Store corked bottles on their sides, to keep the cork from drying out and
allowing air into the bottle.
UV rays make wine age faster, so keep bottles out of direct sunlight.
Avoid heavy vibrations from motors, etc.
Store wine separately from strong odors that might contaminate the flavor
of the wine.
How Long Should I Store My Wine?
While most wines today are meant to be drunk "young" (within a few years of
production) some fine wines are best served by proper aging. But aging too
long can decrease the flavor of the wine. Generally speaking, red wines can age
longer than white wines, but here is a storage guide for some popular vintages.
