There are several reasons to store wine properly. Environmental conditions are extremely important if you are planning to store your wine for a longer period. Some wine lovers store their wine with a long-term investment in mind, while there are so many others, such as wineries, who may be looking for a momentary space.
Depending on the type of material, you can find a wooden wine cellar, metal and iron wine racks, bamboo, glass, and some other materials. Each of these has its benefits and before buying a new one for your cellar, it is good to know the details of each type of rack.
Humidity levels are also very important when it comes to wine storage. High humidity will produce mold that can damage the wine label and foil. But too little moisture can cause the cork to shrink and dry out. It can break the seal and ultimately spoil the wine. Humidity between 60-70% is ideal and is the industry standard for warehouse storage.
If wine is not stored properly in precise humidity and temperature conditions, it will ruin the taste of your wine. There are also different types of wooden shelving available in the market like for, bamboo, cedar, and pine shelving. Wooden shelves are amazing for storing your wine for several years.
