I just read an article that quotes a Dr. Miguel Cabral, Amorim’s director of R&D, as saying that corked wines do not have to be stored on their sides. He says it is a myth the corks will dry out due to the nearly 100% humidity present in the headspace! The article goes so far as quoting him as saying this common belief is “bulls**t”!! Amorim is one of the biggest manufacturers of corks btw, according to my not extensive research. Has anyone heard this? What say ye? It seems to make perfect sense to me, if true it would make storing wines for me much simpler since I went on, for me at least, a wine making bender this year! And I live in a relatively small house.
