It's Groundhog Day in the US, which means, according to the namessake movie, we get a do-over! So we re-do the episode on aging -- we discuss what to hold, why, and the history behind it. We talk about ideal storage conditions & why we don't cellar wine. 

We hit on:

  • The history of aging wine
  • The chemical components that make a wine good for aging
  • The role of cork in aging
  • Which wines may age best
  • The ideal conditions for cellaring and ways to cellar wine -- temperature, humidity, light, vibration
  • Bottle types and dumb phases
  • Why we don't cellar wine

Hope you enjoy and learn more this time than the last time we covered this!
