We now that we need to be careful to store wine. It is a precious liquid that can be spoiled for several reasons: humidity, temperature, light, etc.
Understanding how to store your wine bottles is also a factor that will improve the life span of your wine. This will help you to design your wine cellar with AABC wine cellars and storage.
Wine connoisseurs agree that the two main factors to determine your wine quality is temperature and storing position.
Wine should be stored in a cool, dry place with constant temperature of 70 Fahrenheit degrees or less.
Wine can be spoiled at a different temperature. Wine is a fermented liquid made of grapes, having a higher temperature will make the wine ferment more.
When a wine has been exposed to higher temperatures the smell will be of fruit and raisins.

Storing your wine bottles in the upright position is the wrong way to do it. The cork of the bottle is used to prevent the wine to have contact with oxygen. We need to make sure that the wine keeps contact with the cork. When it is upright, the wine will not be in contact with the cork. The cork seals the bottle, having constant contact with the wine and the cork allows to seal the bottle.
