What’s the best temperature to store my wine?

The perfect wine cellar environment is about 50 to 55 levels. However, if you would like to hold wines in their current state without adding to the aging process, you may want to hold them as low as 45 levels. Temperature is important, but so is humidity.

The perfect relative humidity in a cellar is 60 to 70 percent. This high humidity helps keep moisture inside your wine container, rather than and can eventually travel into the cork and ultimately evaporate. Thus, particularly if you live in a low-humidity area, your coolant system should include a humidifier to add much-needed moisture to your cellar environment.
