The Effect Of Wine Storage Conditions On Wine Quality

Nov. 15, 2019

What are the storage conditions for wine? The storage conditions of the wine directly affect the quality of the finished wine, or destroy all previous hard work. Therefore, whether for technicians, production personnel or sales personnel, it is necessary to be familiar with the factors affecting wine quality storage. So what are the specific conditions? Wine Fermentation Equipment suppliers will come to tell you.


There are several factors that affect the quality of stored wine:


1, temperature

The ideal temperature for the wine cellar is about 11 ° C, but the most important thing is that the temperature needs to be constant, because the thermal expansion and contraction caused by the temperature change is the easiest to let the wine ooze out of the cork to accelerate the oxidation of the wine. So as long as you can maintain a constant temperature, 5~20 °C is acceptable, but a cold wine cellar will make the wine grow slowly, it will take longer, and if it is too hot, it will mature too fast, not too rich and meticulous. Usually the underground wine cellar has the best thermostatic effect, and the entrance is best located at the back of the sun to avoid temperature effects when entering and leaving. For professional wineries, there are professional Wine Storage Vessel for storing wines, which guarantee various conditions such as temperature and humidity.

2, humidity

About 70% of the humidity is the best for wine storage. Too wet makes the cork and wine labels rot. Too dry makes the cork dry and lose its elasticity, so it can't seal the bottle.


3, luminosity

It is best not to leave any light in the wine cellar, because the light is easy to cause deterioration of the wine, especially the fluorescent lamp and the neon light make the wine change and change, giving a strong and unpleasant taste. Champagne and white wine are the most sensitive to light, so be careful.


4, ventilation

Wines like sponges often suck the surrounding flavor into the bottle. It is best to ventilate the wine cellar to prevent the mildew. In addition, you should avoid putting together heavy-duty items such as onions and garlic and wine. Friends who are used to hiding wine in the refrigerator, it is best not to put it too long, so as not to let the taste of the refrigerator penetrate into the wine.


5, vibration

Even if there is not much scientific basis, the average drinker still believes that excessive vibration will affect the quality of the wine. For example, it is the best proof that the wine after long-distance transportation has to stabilize its quality after several days, so try to avoid it. The wine is moved in and moved, or placed in a place that is constantly vibrating, especially old vintage wines.


6, placed

The traditional way of placing wine is to lay the wine flat so that the wine is in contact with the cork to keep it moist. Because the dry and shrinking cork does not completely close the mouth of the bottle, it is easy to oxidize the wine. However, recent research has found that the bottle is placed at 45° in the retention bottle, allowing the stopper to come into contact with the wine and the air in the bottle at the same time. However, this method is inconvenient and has not been widely adopted.


7, other factors

Even in the same crucible, there are slight differences in storage conditions, such as higher temperature and higher light. When it is arranged, it can be more resistant, such as red wine, placed in a high place, and the sensitive people such as champagne and white wine are placed at a low position.


These are the best storage conditions for wine. If you want to know more about wine, you can contact us, we can also provide you with brewing equipment, in addition to Soybean Sauce Fermenting Tank and other condiment containers, welcome your arrival.
