The Correct Wine Storage Temperature


The first requirement is that the wine be kept at a reasonably even temperature. It should not be too warm or to cold, but somewhat below room temperature. The optimum temperature for storing wine is 11°C ( 52ºF), but anything between from 6ºC to 18ºC ( 42ºF – 64ºF ) will do no harm as long as there are no short term high fluctuation. High temperature will age the wines prematurely. Slow and moderate fluctuation in temperature will not harm the wines.  High Rise – When storing wine, remember that heat rises.
