How to store your natural wine?

Storing natural wine correctly is important, as it often has less added sulfites and other preservatives than conventional wine. Here are some general guidelines to follow:

  1. Store the wine in a cool, dark place: Natural wine should be stored in an area that is consistently cool and dark, with a temperature range of around 55-65°F (12-18°C). Avoid storing the wine in direct sunlight or in an area that experiences extreme temperature fluctuations.

  2. Store the wine horizontally: Natural wine, like other wines, should be stored horizontally to keep the cork moist and prevent air from getting into the bottle. This will help to maintain the wine's flavor and prevent it from spoiling.

  3. Drink the wine within a reasonable timeframe: Natural wine is often meant to be consumed within a few years of bottling, so it's important to enjoy it within a reasonable timeframe. 

  4. Avoid storing the wine near strong odors: Natural wines are often more delicate in flavor than conventional wines and can be easily influenced by strong odors. Avoid storing natural wine near items with strong scents, such as spices, perfumes, or cleaning products.

  5. Store opened bottles in the refrigerator: Once you've opened a bottle of natural wine, it's best to store it in the refrigerator to slow down the oxidation process. This will help preserve the wine's flavors and prevent it from spoiling.

By following these guidelines, you can help ensure that your natural wine stays fresh and flavorful for as long as possible.
