A luxury wine cooler is used to store wine, but do you know how to use it correctly?
Wine coolers are used to chill wine because, unlike regular refrigerators, they can keep the wine chilled to the correct, constant temperature. Keep the temperature stable, whether you have a single-zone or dual-zone temperature in your wine cooler. If you need to adjust the temperature, do so slowly and only if necessary. You can force wine through the cork with a sudden increase in temperature, and a decrease in temperature can force air into the bottle. Always store bottles with a cork on their sides. Close the refrigerator door properly so that it is airtight. Otherwise, the temperature in the wine cooler will be higher than the ideal temperature for your wines. Move the bottles as little as possible, as constant motion affects the ageing process.
Storing and using opened bottles of wine
Recork your wine bottles as soon as possible after serving. This sounds easier than it is. If the cork is undamaged, you might be able to force it back into the bottle. Always put the cork the right way up in the bottle. You should be able to push the cork back in by holding the bottle firmly, tilting the cork slightly—Fore the other. Rest the cork on the lip of the bottle, and in one motion, twist and press down. While still holding the bottle firmly, press down hard on the cork with the heel of your hand. If you battle with this method, wrap the cork in a small piece of waxed paper. This will reduce the friction between the cork and the bottle, and the cork should slip easily back into the bottle. Perhaps the easiest way to recork your wine is to use a commercial wine stopper. Stand the recorked bottles of wine in an upright position in the wine cooler. Whether your opened wine is red or white, there are many varied uses for opened wine, including homemade wine/recipes. Experiment with the genius ways to use leftover wine and see how much fun you can have.
