Wine is one of the most delicate and sophisticated drinks, it can make a meal or dinner something special, regardless of whether it is white, red or rosé. Wine experts know this, which is why they take very good care of each bottle.
Every detail of the environment is a factor that must be taken care of in order to preserve the wine in perfect condition and here we share some of the tips that experts follow on this subject.
Among the main tips that every good wine lover should know are the following:
Temperature: To keep the wine in excellent condition so it does not lose its flavor, it must be stored in a cool place or with a controlled temperature. There are many places around the world that are considered hot for wine.
Ideally, the wine should be kept between 8 and 15 °C (46°F to 59°F), so it is recommended that once opened it should be refrigerated.
Vertical position: It is important that you keep your bottles in a vertical position, especially before opening, by placing them that way the cork keeps moist. A moist cork keeps the seal tight through its volume avoiding oxygen to filter in and affecting the flavor.
Avoid direct light: Light is another factor that causes wine to oxidize, so it is important to keep it in a place where it is not directly exposed to light.
