I looked back a little and couldnt find anything specific on this. Does it matter whether you keep your wine upright or on the side (like you see with wine racks)? My main thought is if I kept them upright will it somehow compromise the cork? thanks
Yep I do store them upside down (stacks easier)I heard the same as Deez about keeping them upright for a couple days, dont remeber the why.
Yes on their sides. I think it was Tom, who stores them upside down in cases to save space.
Wade I wasn't saying one was better then the other just saying what i like to use . Plus i don't have to worry if I have to store then in the wooden boxes I have upright if they are corked with synthetic . They both have thier plus & minuses so i think it's whatever each person wants to use .AS a few have said, keep them upright for 2-3 days so that thencorks can properly seat themselves and after that if using most standard corks lay them down or upside down to keep the corks from drying out. NSWiner as made a statement here that all shoulkd know is controversial just like most things with wine making.
Sop far studies have shown that synthetic corks are no better then the cheapest standard coks and good corks are way better and that even screw tops are exceeding both. Me, I like a good mix of natural and synthetic and use Perfect agglomerate corks but Im pretty sure there is a little better quality out there and they are called 2 + 2 corks which are all natural in the middle with synthetic discs top and bottom.
