Bottling Questions and Answers
1 Q How long can bottled wine be kept ?
A Wine is a product always in “modification”, even when bottled. The nature (vintage) and the winemaking techniques have
the ability to determine the longevity period for each wine variety. It can vary between 6 months to 30 years, depending also
on the storage conditions once on the market.
2 Q Do all wines reach the best taste peak at the same time ?
A No, it varies for each wine, depending on the variety and how the specific wine was conceived.
3 Q What is the most efficient way to store wine ?
A In a dark and humid place where temperatures are constant between 50 and 65 F.
4 Q Do wines contain sulfites ?
A Most wines contain sulfite residues. The sulfites are the only preservative used in winemaking.
5 Q Should wines be decorked and decanted prior to serving ?
A Not really. Whites don’t need it at all. Most of the reds available at the grocery stores don’t need it either. If you have a wine
that you have been keeping for more than 3-5+ years, the use of a decanter is recommended.
