With some wines taking 10 years or more to reach maturity, the quality and longevity of your wine cellar refrigeration system is vital. It is important to have consistent temperature and humidity conditions for proper storage of wine. Warmer or varying temperatures may result in flat aromas and flavors. Proper humidification is equally important to ensure the safety of the cork. Dried cork due to low humidity may result in air infiltration into the wine bottle. The optimal temperature of your wine is between 55 and 58 degrees, with a humidity range of 50-75%.
