The way your Henschke wine is stored will impact its longevity. From temperature to light, bottle position and closure type, learn how to create ideal cellaring conditions in your home.  


How to store your wine 

Darkness is important because light, especially sunlight, will increase a wine’s rate of ageing and can spoil it over time.  

Constant temperature is critical as it allows for slow, even maturation. We recommend cellaring white wines from 7-12°C and red wines from 12-18°C. 


Warmer or fluctuating temperatures can impact the rate at which wines age and the risk of spoilage. It can also cause corks to move and leak.  

How you store your wine depends on the closure. Bottles with corks should be laid horizontally, while wines with screwcap or Vinolok glass stopper can be stored in any position.
