Your Fine Wine-Keeping it well Conserved
Has it ever happened to you getting a bottle or even a case of that fine wine you once savored at a restaurant and some time down the line, on a special occasion, you open that fine wine you just love and while decanting it you find out that it has gone bad? Don´t blame just yet the wine cellar cause the fault of it going bad could be all yours!
There are a few reasons this could happen with your wine. Wine that is not stored properly has greater chances of losing its qualities faster than wine properly cared for!
Storing wines at home needs its special attention.
Relative humidity, luminosity and temperature are the 3 most important conditions you should take into consideration in caring for your fine wine.
These points taken into thought together will result in the ideal environment to care and guarantee your wine lasts for years on if necessary.

Keeping your fine wine in top shape
There are many homes with basements in which a corner could be picked to set up your wine cellar, as for the ones who don´t have a basement or live in an apartment, probably the best option if you usually go for the more expensive fine wines is to invest in a wine cooler. It’s a sort of a fridge but made specifically for storing wine! They come in different bottle capacities!In these coolers store your white wine on the bottom and your red fine wine on the top. This guarantees you can enjoy your fine nectars at the right temperature!
