Wine is one of very few consumables that can improve with age. However, wine can also degrade considerably over time. Proper storage will largely determine whether your wine improves or deteriorates. Humidity, light, and temperature are the primary controllable factors in wine storage. We'll be discussing temperature in this particular blog.
While wine experts often disagree over many of the finer points of wine storage, it's generally accepted that most wines need to be stored at a temperature of about 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Wine expert Jancis Robinson stated that wine should be stored at a continuous temperature between 50-59 degrees F. 52 degrees is the ideal temperature for wine according to wine authority Tom Stevenson, and Karen MacNeil publisher of The Wine Bible states that wine should be stored at a constant temperature of 55 degrees F.
Coincidentally, this temperature range which translates to about 10 to 15 degrees Centigrade is the same temperature range that exists in most of the natural caves in France which have been used for ages to store fine wine.
