The three factors that have the most direct impact on a wine’s condition are light, humidity and temperature. A fourth consideration can be security, since wine can be considered a luxury good with value on the after-market. Historically the long-term storage of wine was handled by wine merchants but since the mid 20th century the task of handling and storing wine has increasingly fallen to consumers. Industries relating to specialty wine storage facilities and the construction of home-based wine cellars have emerged to cater to the storage needs of consumers.

Wine can be stored between 45-64 °F/7-18 °C, as long as any variations are gradual. A temperature of 55 °F or 13 °C is recommended by experts, and that’s the temperature commonly found in “caves” used to store wine in places dedicated to storing wine. These “caves” are commonly known as Wine Cellars and are ideal for both short-term wine self storage and long-term aging of wine.

Wine generally matures differently and more slowly at a lower temperature than it does at a higher temperature. Between 50-57 °F/10-14 °C, wines will age normally []

Wine cellars can be either active or passively cooled. Active wine cellars are highly insulated and need to be properly constructed. They require specialized wine cellar conditioning and cooling systems to maintain the desired temperature and humidity. In a very dry climate, it may be necessary to actively humidify the air, but in most areas this is not necessary. Passive wine cellars must be located in naturally cool and damp areas with minor seasonal and diurnal temperature variations
