What’s That You Say? Wine Storage?

Wine: one of the oldest and most popular drinks the world has ever known.

More and more restaurants and bars are offering BYOB (Bring Your Own Bottle) services, where anyone can bring in wine for a mere corking fee. According to the Wine Institute, U.S. wine sales topped $28.7 billion in 2009.

If you’re like my girlfriends and me, catching up and regaling the latest tales in each other’s lives is often accompanied with a bottle of wine.

What happens when you’re a wine connoisseur whose wine cellar is becoming smaller as your collection grows larger?

Many storage facilities today are revamping their facilities to feature specialized wine storage. For prime wine storing, wine should be stored in the dark between 55-58 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, remember to store your wine bottles horizontally, as to keep the cork moist—to minimize the possibility of the cork cracking and admitting unwanted air into the bottle.
