Wines are one of the few things getting better with aging. But that is only if you take proper care of your bottles. It is essential to carefully maintain both temperature and humidity at a proper level.
The best temperature to preserve wines is between 16°C and 20°C. During your bottles transportation, from vineyard to our warehouses your wines are kept in a temperature controlled environment, in a refrigerated container, wine is preserved during the whole supply chain to guaranty you the best product quality.
Too little humidity will dry and shrivel the cork allowing air to enter the bottle, it will cause oxidation and spoilage. Too much humidity is a threat for the label and the cork quality.
At auchanwines.com, we maintain humidity between 70% and 80%.
Exposure to sunlight or artificial light is damaging the taste, the color, the scent and mouth-feel and can make a wine undrinkable. This is why at auchanwines.com we store your bottle in the dark, they will in fact nearly never see the light from their production to the moment when you will open our box.
At auchanwines.com, we have a dedicated warehouse to store only your wines. Your wine “breathes,” meaning that it will absorb other flavors and smells that leak in. Anything that can mold or rot (like foodstuffs), or that has a strong scent (like chemicals).
During transportation from vineyard to our warehouse, bottles are kept in a dark temperature controlled environment in order to guaranty you the best product quality.
Shipped in a refrigerated container, wine is preserved during the whole supply chain. Then bottles are stored in our warehouse in Shanghai, where humidity is controlled and temperature is held between 16°C and 20°C.
