I grew up on a farm with our family, but it’s not your usual farm, in fact, it’s not a farm at all.
It’s a vineyard, and we grow the absolutely best grapes and produce the absolutely best wine there! As a kid, I learned all there is to think about grapes and wine, but I couldn’t drink it.
The whole process is fascinating, but now that I am an adult, I love educating others on how to get the most out of their wine. The process is so rare that the wine should be consumed under the best conditions. One thing that people often overlook is the preservation of wine once it is bottled. Though it is sealed tightly, the bottle requires a certain temperature to hold the best wine, wine cellars should operate under a steady temperature at all times. This temperature may depend on the location, but it should be cool enough to allow humidity into the room. Humid air is absolutely important for wine to age in a cellar! Some people keep a standalone humidifier in the cellar, while others attack one into the wall. Whatever you decide, be sure that your heating and air conditioning contractor understands what the purpose of the humidifier is for. There is a unique setting in humidifiers that is favorite for wine connoisseurs. If the humidifier is providing too much moisture in the air, this could cause the bottles to overheat. The temperature of the a/c matters, as it helps to balance the humidity. Our vineyard shop offers wine preservation classes for those who are interested in receiving hands-on experience. It’s actually a remarkable journey!
