Although some people think that drinking wine is not a good habit, but still no one will not give up wine from their kitchen. There is always enough supply to enjoy on your own. Therefore, it is also necessary to find out how to keep wine safe. Wine can be the right companion when you are eating food, including when you are at home. However, many people still misunderstand how to store wine at home, so the taste is lost. Well, if we intend to store wine at home, it would be very good to understand the correct storage technique and the right optimal wine storage temperature.
The wine storage room has special requirements. As is done by restaurants or places to eat, they distinguish room temperature for white wine and red wine. In restaurants, the room temperature for white wine is 10-12 degrees Celsius, while red wine is set at 14-18 degrees Celsius. Of course, there are exceptions to the precision numbers if you keep them at home. If you can make the temperature on that fixed degree specifically like that, or the air conditioner won’t stop then you must keep the wine at that condition. It is advisable to store wine in the refrigerator. Don’t forget to distinguish the position of white and red wine in the refrigerator. For white wine can be placed at the top, while red wine at the bottom. This is because white wine is served cold, while red wine is not meant to be served cold.
Make sure not to overfill the refrigerator with fish, meat, or other pungent stuff. This risks reducing the quality of the wine. The aroma of these ingredients is feared to seep into the wine and make it taste bad. It can be stored in the refrigerator for a long time—as long as it’s never been opened. If the white wine has been opened, it will last 3-4 days. Meanwhile, red wine that is opened only lasts 1-2 days.
