There is nothing worse in the life of the wine lover than opening a bottle and realizing that it is impossible to drink what is inside. Unfortunately, not everyone can afford the luxury of having a wine cellar at home. How to take care of your precious bottles then?
The general advice you may find on the Internet is to keep your wine chilled. There are rarely further explanations and useful tips on how to do that. We, at Wine Russian House, can't imagine a good wine to be wasted! That's why we've prepared several helpful recommendations.
Let's start learning the art of storing wine correctly!
HOW TO STORE WINE
No matter how many bottles you have in your possession, each of them should be treated equally with care. Before opening Wine Russian House, we have learned the traditions of wine storage in different countries and epochs. That is why we are confident that our selection is always in a good state and will bring lots of joy and pleasure to the clients.
We roughly split all the rules into dos and don'ts. See what is the best you can do for your collection:
If you can afford a wine refrigerator or cooler, your bottles will be safe. This is a very useful device for wine lovers. Most importantly, it exists in numerous sizes and capacities. The smallest fridge can hold up to 6 bottles, which is enough to store a collection of your favorite wines from SORT wineries, which you can find on our website.
When it comes to placing the bottles, keep them on the side. It allows the cork to be always moisturized. Dry cork is a death of good wine. imagine opening Myskhako dry red Black from black for your guests and tasting cork instead of Cabernet Sauvignon. Such a disgusting end for a bottle and the entire evening, isn't it?
DON'TS OF WINE STORING
Don't feel like investing in a wine refrigerator yet? In this case, try not to ruin the chemical processes that are still going on in the closed bottle. Avoid doing the following things:
- Keeping a closed bottle in the ordinary fridge. The temperature there is not optimal for wine.
- Storing a bottle in the upright position for a long time. Cork should be in touch with the moisture, remember?
- Placing the bottle on the top shelf of the fridge. It's the hottest part of any refrigerator that is definitely won't do any good.
Want to make sure that your wine is always good? Storing the bottles properly is important but buying them from the right place is even more essential. Large supermarkets and local merchandisers don't actually care about keeping the bottles in a good state. We advise purchasing from small and independent shops, like our Wine Russian House. You will get a large selection of the finest wines from the south of Russia with each bottle being carefully stored before it arrives at your doorstep!
