Storage

How and where you store your wine will largely depend on the size of your collection. If it is small to medium, a wine refrigerator may be the best option.

You may also go the simplest route and place your bottles in a cool and dark space such as a basement or unused closet that is free from regular foot traffic, sunlight, and temperature fluctuations.

Wine Storage Basics

Wine cave construction in the United States has a long history dating back to the 1800s in the Sonoma and Napa Valley regions of California.

What does your wine want? What does your wine need? What is best for your wine? The right wine glass can answer all of these questions. Because picking the right wine is such a daunting task, there’s a naïve hope that choosing which wine glass to pour it into would be a much easier responsibility. However, the reality is that figuring out which is the right wine glass is often just as difficult, if not more.

Although simply ignoring the rules of wine etiquette and drinking from whatever pleases you is always an option, there comes a point in time when an avid, or not so avid, wine drinker might decide that just any old glass is no longer satisfactory.
