It’s officially summertime! This means weekends by the pool, and that famous Houston heat!

Since the temperature is going up, have you ever wondered what to do with your wine collection? You know that temperature is the key from keeping your wines from going unpleasantly astringent and destroying corks, but what exactly is the right temperature to store them in?

Turns out, cooler than you might think – somewhere between 55 and 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Getting even up to 70 degrees Fahrenheit can lead to spoilage! That is not the way to treat your valuable collection.
