1 â€“ Invest In a Good Cellar
Cellaring gourmet wines for a few years can leave you with wines that go well beyond the original expectations. Invest in a good wine cellar with plenty of racking to hold each bottle securely, with the corks wet. A wine cellar is an essential for anyone who wants to enjoy the best wine. Keep the cellar well ventilated, dark, and cool to age the wine properly.
2 â€“ Buy the Best to Start With
Only purchase the best wines to start with. Although even a cheap wine can improve by aging in a cellar for a few years, the best wine from any year will age into an exceptional wine. Pick from the winemakersâ€™ top range to ensure you receive the best wine. Gourmet winemakers do price according to quality of wine, so a $10 bottle of wine is nothing compared to the $300 bottle.
3 â€“ Taste Before You Buy
Quality wine should already be smooth and palatable when you first purchase it. If you are buying a case or more of the best wine, ask the winemaker or winery to provide a sample from the same batch as your wine. This way you will know you are definitely getting what you are paying for.
For a real taste of luxury, ensure you are drinking top quality wine.
