What Is The Ideal Humidity For Wine Storage?

When you buy fine wines from Ideal Wine Company, it is key that you store your products correctly, to maintain quality. Lending a helping hand, here we ask: what is the ideal humidity for wine storage?

It is vital that you keep humidity levels in your storage facility high, to stop corks from drying out. We strongly advise you to ensure the humidity never drops below 50%. In general it is wise to maintain humidity levels are around 60% - 80%. If humidity rises above 80%, it will not damage the cork or wine, but the high level could cause mildew to develop in your storage area, damaging fine wine labels.
