Understanding wines is not an easy task. But one way to start entering this universe is to know how to store your wine correctly like storing in rent storage (เช่าที่เก็บของ which is the term in Thai) for instance. Here are dos and don’ts
– Store the wine horizontally so that the liquid is in contact with the cork (thus preventing its drying out);
– Keep the temperature between 16ºC and 18ºC constant, for red wines;
– Sparkling, white, and rosé wines should be stored at a temperature of around 6º. But, if the cellar does not have this possibility, they can be stored ideally in the red wine cellar: just put them in the fridge 1 hour before consuming and keep them in an ice bucket for the moment.
In addition, it is necessary to pay attention to other factors, such as sunlight and humidity. “Wine doesn’t like too much light. Wines are susceptible to luminosity, as, with the luminous intensity, they can develop the so-called ‘light defect.’ This affects the aromas, taste and, mainly, the visual aspect, causing the reds to lose color, becoming lighter, and causing the whites to gain a more yellowish color”.
Some attitudes should be avoided when storing wine in storage like rent storage (เช่าที่เก็บของ which is the term in Thai) for instance. Look:
– Do not leave the drink in places that are not firm and that have vibration, shake or shake;
– Do not leave the wine in hot places such as near the oven, outside the pool, etc.;
– Do not let that water that runs down the bottom of the cellar wall accumulate. This will cause your labels to become moldy and can even damage your wines from excess moisture;
– Do not leave them in the sun at all, and not even in a place with a high incidence of light. Give preference to dark places;
– Do not place other foods in the cellar that could transfer the aromas to your wine.
– Do not leave the wine in the refrigerator after it has been open for a long time. Wines can be stored for up to 2 days in the cellar or refrigerator, as long as the oxygen is removed from the bottle
