Everyone loves the complex taste of properly aged wine. However, for many people, the process of aging wine is difficult and often done imperfectly. You will have to take into consideration various factors such as humidity, light exposure, temperature, where the wine was made, and the cost of the wine.

Understanding Tannins

There are many terms that wine collectors use to define the taste and texture of wine. Wine tannin, for example, is a textural element that can make a wine taste dry.

Buying a Wine Rack – What You Should Know

By Storbox Self-Storage on March 4, 2014 - Comments off

Even wine collectors who have large cellars and wine cabinets need wine racks. A wine rack is perfect for keeping the wine you are ready to consume within arm’s reach. Racks vary in material and in size. They can be mounted on the wall, rest above your cabinets, or sit on your countertop. When purchasing a wine rack for your collection, there are many features to consider.

So, you may want to avoid putting it near windows where there is more sunlight. Once you find a safe spot, you will have to determine how much room you have.
