Luxury wine cellar company, Spiral Cellars, have recently installed a beautiful White Spiral Cellar in our Colchester showroom. Their passion for fine wine is paramount and the importance of storing wine correctly is their primary concern. In this guest post, Spiral Cellars explain the basics of how to store wine, ensuring your wine is perfectly preserved and ready to enjoy.
We’ve all done it. Been given a special bottle of wine, tucked it away somewhere ‘safe’ only to discover that by the time an occasion arises worthy enough to open it, the wine has been spoilt. All too often, this is because that ‘safe’ storage place is anything but.
Wine is the ultimate loner, liking nothing better than to be left alone and undisturbed somewhere cool and dark. Hence keeping bottles on top of a constantly vibrating fridge or under the stairs where they are at risk as one rummages around trying to access misplaced golf clubs, is not a good idea. It’s estimated that failure to cellar wine in decent conditions contributes to the fact that 30-40% of UK wine is unable to reach its’ prime drinking window.
