Bottling and Storage

Cellaring your wine

Although wine is very acceptable at bottling time, it will continue to improve if allowed to further mature in a cool, dark place.  The ideal storage temperature for wine is between 13°C - 15°C (45°F - 58°F).  Minimal exposure to light and movement or agitation will also assist in the aging process.

Minimum  Aging

Successfully aging wine depends on many factors including sterilizing procedures, corks, temperature, humidity, light etc.  It is impossible to give an absolute accurate time frame due to all those variables.  Please use the following information as a guide for aging our wines.  Note: the aging times are based on the recommended addition of a ¼ teaspoon of Potassium Metabisulphite.
