Stacked and packed. This summer's weather has been wonderful. Cool nights, perfect for sleeping tight. But more importantly, having the temperature under control means that the wine I've been holding at home is doing well.
There's several wines that I've had for a few months. I feel bad trucking one or two bottles over to my friend's place, where I store the majority of my wines. It can definitely be a problem as we have an above ground basement, so temperatures can really soar. Last year, temperatures hovered around the 25-26 mark. Not good.
This year has been fantastic. Holding onto some Champagne, a lot of Mosel riesling, and some Tuscan beauties. Waiting to pair with some great food when my friends get back, of course.
