What is the best temperature to store red wine?
There is an ideal range rather than a best temperature to store your Wine. Red Wine should be stored between 14 degrees and 16 degrees celsius. By increasing or decreasing the temperature outside of this range the rate of wine maturity will increase and decrease accordingly. Also important to the storage of your wine is the humidity and light conditions of your cellar. Although the humidity of cities such as Melbourne (The average annual relative humidity is 55.8% and average monthly relative humidity ranges from 48% in January to 67% in June) some cities experience more extreme humidity ranges. A temperature and moisture stable dark cellar will allow your wine to mature and be enjoyed to its fullest.
