Your Tips For Good Wine Cellaring

Kennards Self Storage GlassYour wine is valuable and treasured aspect too important to risk being ruined by poor storage. Private cellars at Kennards Wine Storage are an ideal option for all wine collectors, investors, wine merchants, restaurants and boutique wineries. We have a range of sizes so you can grow (or shrink) your collection easily. From as little as 8 cases up to many hundreds, all collectors are catered for.

Temperature Stability – Wine will prematurely develop if stored in an environment that has large temperature variations, particularly if these occur frequently. Wine should never be stored in temperatures that are too cold (under 12ºC) as this will inhibit the development of the wine. Similarly, wine stored in temperatures that are too warm (over 19ºC) will cause overly rapid development of your wine. Our temperature control systems ensure the wine cellar temperature is very stable.

Suitable Humidity – If wine is stored in conditions that are too dry, the cork will shrink and cause leakage. Too moist, and mould and contamination may occur. Kennards Wine Storage maintains moderate humidity levels (55%-75%) to avoid these problems and assist in the optimum wine development conditions.

Movement & Handling – Wine is a very sensitive and fragile item. Frequent jolts or vibrations during its development can be detrimental. The best cellars will leave your wine untouched and not moved unnecessarily. At Kennards Wine Storage no one else has access to your wine, so all movement and handling is performed by you.

Light & Storage – Frequent exposure to light is not good for wine development. Your cellar should have minimal light. Wine Bottles should be laid on their sides to keep the corks moist, help prevent cork shrinkage, and allow air to oxidise the wine.

Temptation Resistant – Undoubtedly, the biggest villain in premature consumption of your wine is you! Out-of-home cellaring with Kennards gives your wine more hope.
