Wine Cellar Storage

Suitable Humidity

Melbourne’s relatively low air humidity can eventually dry out corks and result in bottle leakage. If your collection is stored in conditions that are too dry, the cork will shrink and cause leakage. If wine storage conditions are too moist, then the potential for contamination and mould exists.

Another factor to consider is that any spaces in the corks will allow air to enter and oxidise the liquid which also causes problems. Our Flemington and Richmond wine storage services maintain a moderate humidity level to avoid these problems and assist in providing the optimum conditions for wine cellar storage in Melbourne.

Stable Temperature

Wine should never be stored in temperatures that are too low as this will inhibit the development of the product. Similarly, storage in temperatures that are too warm will cause overly rapid development of your collection.

Variations in temperature cause corks to expand and contract which leads to oxidation of the liquid. Citilinked is well aware of wine storage permutations and monitors them constantly.

Other Important Factors

Other factors which are ideal to gain the maximum pleasure from your wine cellar storage include:

  • No over-exposure to light
  • No vibration
  • Good, consistent air flow

The condition in which your collection is stored greatly impacts its development and ultimately your enjoyment. The best thing about our wine storage services in Richmond and Flemington is that you can access your wine any time you want (within facility operating hours). So if you feel like getting out one of your prize drops for a tasting, you are only a short drive away from our wine storage near Citylink.
