Looking after your wine
Wine is a living product which should be handled carefully...
Don’t worry, the Bordeaux Wine School is on hand to offer valuable advice to help you store your wine in the best possible conditions!
1 / Transporting wine
Transport the bottles upright to avoid leakage.
Avoid transporting wine in excessively hot or cold conditions.
Wine is disturbed by transportation vibration and movement; let it rest 2 to 3 weeks after arrival.
2 / Organizing your cellar
3 / How to properly cellar wine
A constant year-round temperature of 12-14° C (53-57° F) is ideal. A word to the wise: If the temperature is too high, the wine will age more quickly!
Also take care to maintain an ambient hygrometry of 70-80%, to avoid risking distorted or deteriorated labels and corks.
Lighting should be muted; neon light should be avoided.
