Those who enjoy good wine know that it is of the utmost importance to have a suitable place to store it, so that it is possible to keep the qualities of the drink preserved for longer. And where else to store drinks other than in a wooden cellar?
This furniture is designed exclusively for this purpose, but here among us, in the end, it also ends up being a very decorative piece. Presently, there are cellars manufactured in different materials, however, we will focus on just talking about the wooden wineries in this post.
They have a special charm and give the environment a rustic touch and very cozy. You can choose to buy a ready-made wine cellar or, who knows, to go for DIY - Do It Yourself - or the traditional and very Brazilian " do it yourself ".
But before choosing your wooden wine cellar, it is important to pay attention to some small and significant details that directly involve the correct storage of the bottles and the ideal wine cellar model for you. Are they:
Wine bottles should be stored at temperatures ranging from 12º to 14º C. Temperatures greater than 25º can spoil the drink.
Therefore, look for a cool and airy place to store your bottles. Also avoid places that suffer from constant temperature changes. These oscillations are detrimental to the preservation of the beverage.
2. Bottle position
It is most recommended that wine bottles be kept in the horizontal position, especially if the closing corks are made with natural cork. In this way, the cork will always be in contact with the liquid avoiding its dryness and, consequently, preventing the entry of air into the bottle, which will certainly oxidize the wine.
Closed wines with synthetic stoppers or plastic lids can be preserved both horizontally and vertically. So, doubtless, prefer the wineries that have support for the bottle packaging horizontally.
The cellar and the place where it will be placed can not suffer with vibrations and tremors. Constant agitations in bottles accelerate the aging of wine in a harmful way. So, keep your cellar in a move-free location.
The cellar should be protected from natural and artificial light as much as possible. Light causes changes in the taste and aroma of the drink. Reduce even more the care with the white and rosés wines, since these usually are conditioned in transparent bottles.
Nothing to store your wines in a closed and muffled cellar. Ideally, it should be ventilated and well ventilated so that the temperature does not rise too high and air can circulate freely between the bottles.
Air-conditioned wineries: are they really necessary?
The air-conditioned wineries ensure that all the above requirements are met, providing adequate temperature, lighting and ventilation, especially for those who do not have a location with these characteristics at home. The choice between a simple cellar and an air-conditioned cellar will depend on the conditions of your home and how much you intend to invest in this mobile, considering that the second option is relatively more expensive than the first.
