Wine is not just a liquid beverage, a SKU or a status symbol. It is constantly changing since the days of the fruit hanging on the vine dealing with the earthly elements, through the winemaking experience as well as barrel aging. You hold it in your hands while in bottle and yes, it is still changing, living and developing. As wine sits in a bottle, a chemical change is occurring with the compounds in the wine. This change is natural and over time alters the aromas and flavors in a wine. Whether you plan to drink it next month or in the next decade, it is important that your wine be handled and stored with care. Otherwise, you increase the risk of losing the value of your purchase in the form of undrinkable juice and nobody wants that.
While still in bottle, there are several other elements to deal with to ensure the wine will be ready for the day you give it the nod and provide you with the fullest experience possible. Those elements are light, temperature and humidity. It may sound complicated at times, but it is a good idea to know that there are cooling options available for just about everyone from recreational drinkers with a cupboard under the stairs to long-term investors with a basement that can hold thousands of bottles.
