Why All Wine Connoisseurs Must Purchase A Wine Storage Cooler

As the years pass, the quality and taste of wine changes. The manner in which wine is stored can either slow or hasten this natural process. Whether you are storing white or red wine, sparkling whine or champagne, it may be necessary to invest in a wine storage cooler in order to protect your assortment of fine beverages.

Wine storage coolers are available in a vast array of stores. Even the lower end consumer retailers have gotten into the party. It is not uncommon to find great deals on these products from stores like Walmart and Target. Of course, for the more luxurious wine aficionados out there, high end retailers have more aesthetically pleasing and electronically sound wine storage cooler for sale.

What does a wine storage cooler do? It sounds simple and many of you are probably wondering why not just use the household refrigerator. The reason for this is that the storage temperature required for food to be kept fresh and the temperature required to keep wine properly cooled is different.

Food generally requires a much lower temperature. Another reason is that the continuous opening of the refrigeration causes temperature readings to change. Wine needs to be kept at a constant temperature in order to preserve its color, taste and quality.

Another problem to consider is that different types of wine require different temperature settings. You are not going to have this flexibility with a standard refrigerator. Many wine storage cooler are manufactured with the ability to delegate different temperature and humidity zones. For instance, if you have a fine bottle of white and a deep red wine, you can set two different settings in your wine storage cooler to ensure the preservation of the liquid.

Besides the obvious usefulness of the wine storage cooler, there is an aesthetic component to having one in your home. When a visitor sees a wine storage cooler, the immediate connection is made with luxury and class.

There are a ton of products on the market for you to choose from. The best way to begin your search is by viewing consumer reports, fine wine magazines and doing some Internet research.

If you go to wine tasting events, you might want to ask some of the other attendees and even the wine manufacturers which devices are the best to keep your wine as fresh as possible.

Bermersheimer Hasenlauf Gutenberg P. blanc Spaetlese

In German gastronomic magazines Rudolf Geil is known as a master with the "Burgundy" grape types. In this beautiful 2002 Spaetlese he crafts Pinot blanc into a masterpiece.

Good Wine Storage Can Help in the Preserving and Aging of your Wine

Wine storage is vital to collecting fine wines because you will need to let them age in proper and safe place. There are many different ways to store fine wine and whichever wine storage solution you choose you will need to keep the room conditions constant.

Temperature in the room were you store your wine collection needs to be at a constant 48-62 degrees with plenty of ventilation. You must also keep any source of light to a minimum with no sunlight allowed in the wine storage area.

Wine racks come in many different sizes and varieties which should be chosen for your needs but are definitely a necessary part of fine wine storage. Wine racks can be made of metal which tend to be more flamboyant and stylish while wood racks are classic and traditional in style.

Find wine racks and wine storage products that will tie together your overall style and look you are going after. Your choice is to determine if you want to look like a professional wine collector. If so you can put great time and effort into the complete look of your wine racks and wine cellar. If you are content with just having a great place to store your vintage fine wines for later consumption than going to that degree may not be needed.

Once you do open wine it is best to consume any wine relatively soon. There are two basic rules which apply to opened wine. First, refrigerate the wine to help preserve its taste, Secondly minimize the wine's exposure to oxygen by transferring it to a smaller container and corking it with a vacuum stopper.

Today's Wine Stains Article

Wine Storage Temperature And Serving Suggestions

The love of wine has existed since the dawn of time. Fossil vines, 60-million-years-old, are the earliest scientific evidence of grapes. The earliest written account of viniculture is in the Old Testament of the Bible which tells us that Noah planted a vineyard and made wine (well with all those animals on the Ark what was he expected to do!)

Exactly when it was discovered is unknown, but an ancient Persian fable credits a lady of the court with the discovery of wine. This Princess, having lost favor with the King, attempted to poison herself by eating some table grapes that had spoiled in a jar. She became intoxicated and giddy and fell asleep. When she awoke, she found the stresses that had made her life intolerable had dispersed. Returning to the source of her relief, her subsequent conduct changed so remarkably that she regained the King's favor. He shared his daughter's discovery with his court and ...

The wine industry and consumption continues to grow every year. Wine connoisseur are continually buying great wine to keep either for later consumption or for investment.

One of the most important aspects to ensure your wine stays fresh during storage is the wine storage temperature.

The basics of wine storage temperature are fairly simple. First, the wine should be kept cool. Like most beverages and foods, heat is the natural enemy of wine. A cool temperature is optimal, but the temperature should not lowered too much as this too will harm the wine. In the unlikely event that the wine freezes, it will probably only be suitable for vinegar!

The basics of wine storage are really straightforward with whites, reds, and blushes. However, the serving preparation for each of these wine types is different and something worth discussing. After removing the bottle from storage, getting your wine to the correct temperature is important. With red wines, such as a merlot or sheraz, approximately 65 degrees Fahrenheit (18 degrees Celsius) is what is recommended. This is basically room temperature. Secret tip: in a room of about 70 degrees Fahrenheit the wine, due to being a liquid will naturally be cooler. It is highly advised to not chill red wines. This is a more common error than you think, the cold can be very destructive on the wine and its flavor.

With whites and many blushes the need for refrigeration before serving is key. Chilling truly brings out the flavor. For these types of wine 39 degrees Fahrenheit or 4 degrees Celsius is usually a good temperature.

In the case of both darker wines and the lighter types, it is advisable to let the bottle ?breathe? after opening. It is recommended you do this about half an hour before drinking (longer is often better)

Now to tasting. Swish the wine around the mouth to truly get the most out of the flavor. I however recommend drinking as opposed to spitting it out!

In the end ENJOY the wine, it is after all a pleasure that has been with us for centuries.

Altue Reserva Carmenere

When Italian immigrants came to South America they brought with them their customs and traditions. They also brought with them the fruit and vegetables they were familiar with. As such, Italian varietals like Carmenère have found new homes in the South American vineyards of Chile. Carmenère is a native varietal of Italy but it never produced wines of much distinction. Chilean producers have found that this classic grape offers deep, dark wines with intense black fruit flavors. Oak aging has given this wine a nice warm mouthfeel with vanilla scents and a long, memorable finish. TDCRW04 TDCRW04
