Wine Storage Temperature and Humidity

As experts in the wine cellar, Wine Guardian is here to provide you not only with the products and systems you need to preserve your wine collection – but with knowledge and expertise as well. Look around our site and you’ll find some basic tips relating to wine storage, beginning here with with ideal temperature and humidity parameters.

Proper Wine Storage Temperature and Humidity

An ideal temperature for wine storage is 55°F to 57°F (12°C to 14°C) with an average 60% relative humidity. This temperature and relative humidity (RH) will allow the wines to mature slowly, reduce mold growth, keep the corks from drying out, and prevent spoiling of the labels. Whatever temperature is chosen, it should remain constant. Fluctuations in temperature stress the wine and cause the liquid in the bottle to expand and contract. This expansion and contraction puts pressure on the seal of the cork against the bottle and causes premature leakage and spoilage.
