The truth about cellaring wine is that most wine isn’t meant to age. Most wine is released within 2 years of being grapes in a vineyard and then slurped up within 6 months of purchase.
So why to cellar?
– To start a wine collection so you can make money as wine earns value over time.
– You have an interest in a particular wine region/vintage and want to stock up.
– You want know what old wine tastes like and have some to enjoy from time to time.
– You would like to save wine to enjoy over the years to reflect on life.
