Pour, Preserve, Enjoy: Dunavox's Guide to Organic Wine Storage

  • 2024-03-05

In the world of wines, the art of preservation is as crucial as the craftsmanship behind each bottle. Many of us might stash our wines in cupboards or fridges, hoping for the best. However, there's a secret to storing wine correctly, and when it comes to organic varieties, the stakes are even higher. Let's delve into the right way to store your organic wine and why Dunavox stands out as the key to preserving perfection.


Understanding Organic Wine: A Brief Overview

Organic wine isn't just a label; it's a commitment to purity. Crafted from grapes cultivated naturally, organic wine skips the additives, leaving out colorings and flavorings that often find their way into conventional counterparts. The difference lies not only in what's absent but also in what's present—fewer chemicals and a notable reduction in sulfites compared to regular wines. Health-conscious enthusiasts are drawn to the higher concentrations of antioxidants and anthocyanins, offering benefits like increased blood flow and lower cholesterol.


The Challenge of Organic Wine Storage

While organic wine boasts fewer additives, it introduces a new challenge—faster aging. This demands meticulous storage to extend its lifespan. Unlike its chemical-laden counterparts, organic wine, with its limited bacterial content, requires specific conditions to prevent deterioration.


How to Properly Store Organic Wine

When it comes to storing organic wine, precision is key. Considerations like temperature, sunlight exposure, and storage space are paramount. Enter Dunavox - the wine cooling expert - offering a range of high-quality, award-winning Wine Coolers designed with your wines in mind.


The Ideal Temperature for Organic Wine

Maintaining the right temperature is fundamental. Organic wine thrives between 12-18 degrees, an environment a regular fridge can't provide. 

The risk of freezing and loss of flavor makes the fridge unsuitable for storing these delicate bottles.

If you have the opportunity to store red wines, white wines, and champagne separately at their ideal temperature because you own a double or triple zone Dunavox wine cooler, aim for the following temperatures.


Perfect drinking temperature for:

- Red Wines: 12˚C < 18˚C

- White Wine: 8˚C < 12˚C

- Champagne / Dessert Wine: 5˚C and 7˚C


Dunavox Wine Coolers also offer UV light protection, wooden shelves, humidity control, and vibration-free storage—qualities absent in regular refrigerators.


Storing wine on its side is also a practice Dunavox supports, preventing the cork drying out and maintaining optimal conditions.
