A Guide To Optimal Wine Preservation and Storage

Whether you’re a seasoned wine connoisseur or a casual enthusiast, preserving the quality of your wine collection is essential. Proper wine storage ensures that your bottles retain their flavour profiles and age well. This article delves into the critical factors for optimal wine storage, optimising your enjoyment for years to come.

Key Elements of Ideal Wine Storage


Consistent, cool temperatures are crucial. The ideal wine storage temperature range is between 10-15 degrees Celsius (50-59 degrees Fahrenheit). Fluctuations can prematurely age your wine, so stability is key.


Ideal humidity levels range between 60-70%. Lower humidity can dry out corks, leading to oxidation. Higher levels can promote mould growth.


Avoid direct sunlight and strong artificial light that contain UV rays. These rays can accelerate ageing and result in off-flavours.


Store wine in a dark environment to limit exposure to light.


Minimise vibration and movement as they can disturb the delicate ageing process of your wine.
