Best Practices •Once bottled we advise that you bring your wine directly home. Wine is perishable, lengthy exposure to hot or cold temperatures will affect your wine. •Leave your bottled wine standing up for a few days after bottling to allow any excess gases to settle. • It is important to store your wine on its side thereafter to ensure the cork stays moist. This will also prevent oxidation. •Store at 12C with 60% humidity. (See below if this is not possible) •Rinse empty bottles with warm water and leave to dry upside down to dry. We advise that you DO NOT USE SOAP inside the bottles as it can leave residue. •Once dry store bottles upside down in your box to keep them clean.
How do I store my wine? There may still be some compressed air or gasses from bottling your wine trapped inside the bottle. Leaving your wine standing up for a few days once you get it home is a good idea. After that, ensure that you store your wine on its side. Doing so will keep the cork moist, and prevent any exchange of air through the cork, preventing oxidation.
What is the ideal temperature for my wine? Consistency is key when storing wine. The ideal temperature is between 55-57 degrees Fahrenheit or 12 to 14 degree Celsius. Humidity should also remain in the 60-70% range. Investing in a simple thermometer that is able to measure both the temperature and the humidity is encouraged.
What if I can’t keep the temperature low enough? If you are unable to keep the temperature in the preferred range, it can be stored at room temperature. Your wine will be fine, just make sure that the wine is consumed within a 6-12 months. Room temperature is not preferred to long term aging. Cool, dark, and dry is always best. If you are uneasy about your options for storage investing in wine fridge is an option.
What if the temperature gets too low? If your wine is stored in an area that dips below proper temperature it may slowly start to form “wine diamonds.” Grapes naturally contain tartaric acid, potassium and calcium ions. If your wine is kept at a lower than recommended temperature for even a short amount of time this process may occur. While these "diamonds" are somewhat unsightly they are in no way harmful.
How do I care for the bottles once I empty them? Taking a moment at the end of the night to rinse your empty wine bottle with warm water is always a good idea. Doing so will prevent residual. Do not use any cleansers or soaps as this may leave a residue on the bottle. Leave the freshly rinsed bottle upside-down to drain. Once the bottle is dry, place it in a storage case (wine box) upside-down. This will ensure that no dust, mould or mildew create a new home in your bottles.
When can I start drinking my wine? Finding the right time to start to drink your wine can be vary from person to person. Our wine is drinkable from the day you get them home. With age comes smoothness and complexity. Storing your heavier reds for three to six months will help to realize their full potential.
How long will my wine keep? The length of time that the wine will keep will lengthen drastically if the ideal temperature is maintained. Your wine can be stored for years if stored properly.
