Store wine : temperature

Best temperature to keep wine :

The ideal temperature to keep wine is between 50 and 57°F (10 and 14°C)

Wine needs a constant temperature all year round to mature.

A fridge is not a suitable place to keep wine as vibrations will destroy some of its components.

Recommended temperature for chilling wine:

  •  Red wine:  55-60°F  /  12.7-15.5°C
  •  White wine:  49-56°F  /  9.5-13.3°C
  •  Rosé wine:  49-51°F  /  9.5-10.5°C
