Some techniques to preserve your wine well

If you plan to age wine at home, or if you just want to have a good bottle at your house in order to celebrate a special occasion, here are some techniques presented to you by Delices and Gourmandises.

Learn how to create optimal wine aging conditions with Delices and Gourmandises

First, you need to know how to get a wine cellar temperature at home. It has to be fresh with a temperature between 10°C and 14°C.  Thermal shock and the shift between warm and cold can degrade the elasticity of the cork which can lead to a possible air penetration inside the bottle and cause the fast oxidation of the wine. Make sure you lay down the bottle in order to bedew the cork. Unnecessary movement and vibration can also degrade the quality of the wine.

Humidity inside the room must be between 70% to 80% so that the cork remains intact. Be sure it doesn’t get passed that threshold; otherwise it will stimulate the presence of moisture and could lead to a total deterioration of the quality of the wine. It is imperative you keep your bottles away from the sun because the UV lights can quicken oxidation.

Find the best wines with Delices and Gourmandises

If you have a room or cellar that gives you the opportunity to have the optimal conditions we mentioned earlier, you can start to keep your wine bottles in there. It is also possible to get a tool that is specifically dedicated to that matter.
In the meantime, you can already browse through Delices and Gourmandises’ catalog to discover the different variety of wines available. You can order your bottle depending on the type of dish you are having. Delices and Gourmandises also offers a home delivery of their products.
