How to store Wine to extend its shelf life?

The perfect conditions for proper storage exist in a wine cellar - a cool, dark place kept at a constant temperature of 50-55°F (13°C) with slightly angled shelves and only other wines as neighbors. Since most of us can't do this, just remember that the best storage is under cool, dark, and somewhat humid conditions.

Storing wine above the fridge, under the stove, or next to the dishwasher are the worst possible storage choices because the wine will be heated whenever one of these appliances is on.

Storing wine horizontally keeps the cork moist, which preserves the seal and prevents air from seeping into the bottle along with keeping the cork from drying out and crumbling upon opening.

So, corked wine (vino) should always be kept on its side until opened.

Once opened, all wines may be refrigerated to keep them fresh for a longer period of time.

Some benefits of proper food storage include eating healthier, cutting food costs and helping the environment by avoiding waste.
