The Enemies of Wine Aging

It is very important to remember that wine has two enemies: light and heat. So, you don't want to put a wine rack on top of your refrigerator in the kitchen. And if you have one, take it down. Put it in a dark spot in the house. Put it under the stairwell in the basement. That's a good place for wine, if you're going to age it.

Age-Worthy Wine

When we're talking about aging wine, we're talking about only a small percent. There are only a few wines in the world that are age-worthy. We recommend you talk to a good wine merchant about which wines you can age. Then, put them in your cellar in a cold, dark room, and the wine will love you and reward you when it's mature.
