Chuck L. from Tacoma, Washington wrote in recently after watching one of my WineSpeed videos, and noted the wine bottles in the background. He asked, “How long you can comfortably store wine on your office or library shelves without risk or fear of damage?”
Thanks Chuck, you’re so right to spot those bottles! Rest assured that those are current samples in line to be tasted very soon. Generally, they remain on the shelves for a couple of weeks or a month or two max. We also keep our office’s tasting room very cool and the air conditioning remains on at night and on the weekends. Wines that might be more fragile (older wines, pinots, etcetera), even over this short period, go into our Viking cooler.
