If you plan on storing wine for the long term, you must think about what happens on power outages for a few days or while you are on holiday. For this reason, maybe we could assume of placing the wine fridge in a basement or at least somewhere away from direct sunlight.
Secondly, you want to store wine away from vibration. This means not putting it next to a washing machine or dishwasher. Slight vibrations won’t affect the flavor of wine you plan on drinking in the near term. In the long term, though, these vibrations will affect the stability of the wine.
There is an ideal temperature for wine storage and it differs for the reds and the whites. These rules apply for storing wine, not necessarily drinking wine. All wine refrigerators have temperature controls that allow you to set the right temperature for your wine, normally within a range.
You can’t set your wine fridge to freeze ice cubes like you can with your kitchen fridge. A dual temperature wine cooler will allow you to set two different temperatures, one for red wine and one for white wine.
Ideal Temperature For Red Wine
The optimal temperature for red wine is between 62 and 68 degrees Fahrenheit. This is a pretty big range and can depend on the type of wine you store. Lighter body wines, like pinot noir, should be kept on the cooler side. Fuller body reds, like Bordeaux wines should be kept on the warmer side. This is because of the effect of tannins on wine.
Ideal Temperature For White Wine
The ideal temperature for white wine that is being stored is slightly cooler. Most people recommend between 49 and 55 degrees. This is probably a little warm for people' preferences when it comes to drinking white wine. Of course, the wine pros say white wine should be served at just below room temperature in order to maximize the flavors.
