    Question: I know whites should be chilled, but I thought reds should not be. I have our reds in the pantry, and the whites in the garage refrigerator. Am I wrong? Should I be chilling both? Please help.

    I tried to build a wine cellar in the coldest closet in my apt.  After three years I discovered they were all oxidizing and I had to drink them all before they got worse.  I've never tried again.  It was too disappointing.

    I have a storage room on the top floor of the apartment , it’s around 10 degrees and dark. I like to age Rioja it’s a Spanish Wine. It’s actually not even expensive wine but it’s my favourite. I usually age them for around 5 years before drinking them.

    I'm looking to buy cases of 6-12. What would be fine in terms of storage if I'm drinking a bottle once a week? I've seen a case of Marqués De Caranó Gran Reserva 2011, which is one of my favourites and I don't want to get to the last bottle after 6 weeks and it tastes disgusting. So some advice would be appreciated.

    forgive my ignorance but how does wine keep ageing in a bottle when they usually have killed the lees or yeast,or most been filtered and fermented to finish? what is there left to contribute to the ageing process? now when i make my sparkling wine or beers i def see a taste difference when ageing because most of the yeast remains in the bottles till i flush them out and these mellow things down nicely and give more body and flavor ,,but if i purchased a wine that is say 6 years old when sold and stated,,why would i not drink it right away to taste rather than risk changing the taste that it was meant for specially when the results might be worst?

    My 3 year old 40 bottle wine fridge just died; I am a wine snob who drives to Napa, Paso Robles, and/or Santa Barbara to purchase the wines I actually taste. I keep a huge Igloo cooler in the car, and never trust shipping. I am looking for a wine fridge that will allow me to age 50+ bottles for ten or more years, is this possible?

    Just to be sure, to age wine you store it in a fridge and wait?

    How do you know how long to age the wines for? What wines are good to age for 5years vs 15 or so?

    How do you know when the wine was bottled.. How old it actually is.. I know the vintage is when the grapes were harvested… But have been told that doesn't mean it's the age of the wine ?

    So I'm not so much aging wine as I am have recently taken over as a manager at a bar and discovered a 2011 bottle of Rioja rose sitting hidden in the middle shelf of a fridge. The wine was long since de-listed so I was like "I'll give you a tenner?". Sold. As far as I can tell its been stored on it's side all this time in a cold chiller and is currently sitting sideways in the fridge. I'm just starting out exploring wines so I'm not sure if the style will have survived the last five years well? Or if aging Rose is even a thing.

    This video was very helpful to get the right info about storing (and aging) wine. I only wish that you'd also give out the temp etc. in centigrade scale. It's always a hassle to stop the videos and then to convert the temperatures myself.

    Hubby and I have quite a collection of wine now, we're looking at building the wall in our dining room, into a wine rack. It's a room with not much sunlight, but we are in Australia, so could potentially get warm when we're not home to put A/C on.. Do you think this is too risky? Would we be better off getting a wine fridge?

    Have you ever aged a roussanne? supposedly there's a dormancy period. can you talk about atypical wines that shouldn't age despite being of quality–or at least wines that age in atypical ways?

    Whitney! I am loving your videos SO MUCH. Do you think you could do a video about decanting/decanters? I think I understand the principles for it but why not just pop open a bottle well before dinner? Thanks!

    My brother & sister-in-law just got back from Portugal on their honeymoon and bought me a Quinta Do Frances from the Odelouca River Valley! Think I'm going to try aging it!

    Oy! I had a bottle I had been saving for just under two years now, but I kept it on my kitchen counter. Maybe I'll open it soon and just give it a go?

    I just recently purchased a nice bottle of wine from Napa and I'm planning to save it for just a couple of months. What's the safest way to store it until I decide to open it after these few months?

    Hey Whitney,

    Moved to this house that the previous owner has put a beer fridge in the Alfresco. I can set the temperature around 8 – 17ºC. I worked out I can get just over 2 dozen of wine bottles and 2 Bruts in. Does this sound a good idea to store wines in?

    I have 2 wines I was thinking of aging but not sure about , what first a 2012 Châteaux Montet Bordeaux Contrôlée Merlot & a 2012 Château De La Huste Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend ….I've never aged wine & only recently got into it with Club W, I'm buying several bottles at a time ….these 2 I got at Total Wine on my first trip & they were displayed saying they could be aged so I bought them with the intent !

    I know its like 18 years later that I'm commenting, but I just got wine fridge and need to know what temp to set mine at! You say the ideal storing temp is 55 degrees… is that for both red and white? On my fridge I can set 2 different temps so I have my reds on the top and whites on the bottom

    I recently bough a bottle of San Marino (Sangiovese) wine that was bottled specifically to commemorate the 2015 EXPO in Milano… Doesn't seem like an extraordinary wine, but it is almost impossible to get one outside San Marino.. I hope it will at least be a curious thing to have in my collection in a few years 🙂

    I'm only aging three bottles at the moment.  2 bottles of elderberry wine that my mother made, 1 from 2003, the other from 2008.  1 bottle of Chateau Margaux Bordeaux, bottled in 1995.

    I got a story for you on mis-storing a wine. Was on a road trip with my mother and brother through France. The b and b we were supposed to stay in was overbooked. They set us up in another b and b down the road and gave us a bottle of wine for our trouble. The bottle was left in our car, our hot, in the sun all day, car. By the time I remembered the wine the cork pushed itself almost completely out of the bottle and it was quite warm to the touch. I don't remember now if we ever drank it. So, yeah, direct sunlight, not a fan for wine storage.

    I store my wine in a couple of racks on the floor behind my liquor shelf that i keep in a dark corner away from windows and my older more expensive bottles inside my gun safe lol nice and dark in there. I also keep a rack with a few bottles under my bed. I keep my house cold almost year round but during the summertime i move them as close to a ac vent as possible

    Watching videos on wine and getting excited, then remembering that your student budget dictates that you have to buy the £2.99 Spanish red from the Tesco across the street. Sad times.

    There are also these things that create a vacuum in a wine bottle to preserve it. Don't you have it in the US?

    Last year for my 21st birthday my sister bought me a bottle of Bartenura Moscato and fell in love with it! It is light and sweet and just heaven in a bottle. I was wondering what are some other good sweet white sparkling wines you would recommend?
