Ideally, wine should be stored at a constant temperature of around 8 to 12 °C in summer and winter, with a humidity
of 70 to 80% and also protected from light. These conditions are normally found in a wine cellar
. If such conditions are not available, a climatic cabinet is the ideal place to store wine (although it can also be useful in a cellar). In addition, the right drinking temperature is an important factor in the enjoyment of wine
and varies greatly depending on the type of wine (see in detail under Wine Temperature
). A conventional refrigerator is rather unsuitable, because it is technically too shaken and has regular temperature fluctuations.
