If you are not fortunate enough to have a giant wine cellar in your home, then the next best thing is a wine cooler or wine refrigerator in the home. Not only do they add pizzazz to a kitchen or butler’s pantry, but they really do extend the life of your precious bottles of wine. But how much? What if I don’t keep my wine cooler properly calibrated?
These are questions that wine storage owner’s frequently ask Appliance Rescue Service. Here are a few reasons to make sure your wine cooler is properly calibrated:
Extreme Temperatures Cause Harm
If you own a wine refrigerator, then you want to keep bottles of fine wine safe from harmful temperatures. Most wines need to be kept between 45 degrees and 65 degrees Fahrenheit to maximize their flavor and lifespan.
When wines are stored over 65 degrees, they are likely to age more quickly. Have you ever left a bottle of wine in your car on a hot summer day and noticed a difference in taste? High heat – even just indoor ambient temp – can cause wine to be more acidic or have a more vinegar-like flavor.
Prevents Wine Maturation
A good, fine wine is meant to be kept longer than 6 months – sometimes years – and gets better and more full bodied with time. When wines are stored at temperatures below 45 degrees, the wine is too cold to fully mature and flavors to develop.
