Buying a House with a Wine Cellar

When you buy a house with a young family you want to see it as your home for the future, somewhere where you will spend many Christmas lunch’s and family birthday parties with your closest family and friends. Why not buy a house with a cellar so that you can store the perfect wine for all those special occasions. The majority of wine that you buy will not need cellaring to improve the quality, the producer will typically kept the wine at the Chateau until it is ready for drinking. This ensures that the wine will be at its peak quality at the time it will be drunk. Most good reds will have about a two to three year window it should be drunk in so it is very important that you keep the wine in the correct environment to ensure its quality is maintained. A cellar is the best option for storing wine as it provides consistent temperature and light conditions. Temperature, The ideal temperature to store wine is between 10°C and 13°C. You can store wine at room temperature but it is best to keep it at lower temperature for periods over one or two months. If the temperature is higher the wine will mature at a quicker rate which is not always desirable and a sudden exposure to extremely high temperature can cause the irreversible damage. Light Conditions, Darkness is ideal for a cellar. Ultraviolet light destroys wine, which is one of the reasons wine is traditionally bottled in coloured glass. Consequently it makes sense to store wine away from the potentially damaging effects of such light source. Vibrations, Wine needs to sleep, and frequent disturbance of the wine will agitate it. This is unlikely to be a significant problem in the modern home, the small and occasional vibrations from domestic appliances being too slight to cause any real problem. Humidity, Keep the humidity at around 70%. High humidity keeps the cork from drying and minimizes evaporation. Don't allow the humidity to go too much over 70%, however, because it can encourage the growth of mould and cause labels to loosen Orientation, Wine bottles must be kept in a horizontal position, this is to keep the cork moist and stop it drying out. If the cork dries out it will allow oxygen into the bottle potentially causing oxidization. Taking note of these points will ensure that the wine you put into your new wine cellar will be the best quality that it can be. Good wine can be very expensive so look after it!
