Does Wine Get Better with Age?

Published by at 3:55 pm under Storing Wine

The truth is…wine does not always get better with age. Most wineries don’t make their batches to last more than a year or two.

The ideal temperature for aging a bottle is a cool cellar temperature around 50 – 55 degrees F. During the transportation process and the storage of vino by stores, the wine is often kept at a much high temperature than 55 degrees causing it to age faster.

Since wineries assume the vino will be sold and drank within 3 years, there is no need to age the wine anymore than it already has.

Try to keep it stored in a cool, dark place at around 55 degrees until you are ready to pop it open.
