Is there a more beautiful day of the month than the one when you receive your wines at home? Let's see what to do with the precious bottles of your wine subscription after you receive them, and what you need to know to best preserve them. Everything you need to do after receiving the wines at home, in three simple steps.
Receiving wine at home is a great convenience, especially if the service - the wine club - offers added value. It allows you to never run out of wine, discover ever new and valuable bottles without having to go to the cellar or wine shop, and of course avoid carrying them on your arm.
It must be remembered that wine is sensitive to changes in temperature, especially to sunlight and shaking. When receiving bottles at home it is important to know the rules to treat them as best as possible.
Those who ship it, like us, must use patented packaging and boxes suitable for transport, which limit impacts and naturally avoid breakage.
1. Away from the spotlight
The wine should immediately be placed in a dark area , away from vibrations and heat sources (including the air conditioner).

HOW TO TREAT THE BOTTLE IF YOU WANT TO TASTE IT SOON
If you want to uncork the bottle quickly, let it rest for at least a few hours , ideally a day, before serving it: by resting it will recover from the movements. If you intend to uncork it in a few hours, place it vertically, in the refrigerator if necessary.

HOW TO TREAT THE BOTTLE IF YOU WANT TO TASTE IT LATER
If, however, you want to keep the bottle for longer, it is important to immediately place it in the most suitable place in the house, or rather in the cellar (or even in the fridge), placing it horizontally and moving it from there as little as possible.
