If you are a wine enthusiast and like to keep all your wines in the best tasting condition, then there are a couple of things that you can do in order to make sure that you get the same great taste of wine every time.
If you are storing an unopened bottle of wine then the best place to store it is in a wine cellar if you have one. Always keep in mind that wine needs to be stored in a place that has stable light, temperature and humidity and also make sure that the place has little movement and vibration to keep the taste of the wine in great condition.
The ideal place to store your wine is in a wine rack that lays the bottle sideways to make sure that the cork always remains wet and moist allowing for the air to stay out of the bottle at all times. If you have different kinds of wine then you should place the red wine at the top, white in the middle and sparkling wine at the bottom of the rack. Keep in mind to turn the bottles occasionally so that the cork remains moist from all sides and doesn’t let the air come in.
If you have already opened the bottle and want to store the leftover wine then the very first thing you need to do is put the cork back on as tightly as possible to keep all the air out. If the wine bottle is half empty then consider moving it into a smaller bottle so that it comes in contact with less air. If you have white wine then the best thing to do is store it in the fridge to make it last longer.
Make sure that you purchase a wine rack that blends well with the interior of your home and place it somewhere where it will not move very often and will not vibrate because that can have very adverse affects on the taste of the wine.
