I think wine would be a good storage item - just bulky. One standard 750mL bottle is only five glasses of wine.I was wondering if wine would be a good storage item? I know there are people with wine cellars that store wines for many years. Are there special requirements other than cool and dark and what would be the best wines for long term storage?
That would be a very cool thing to know about and be able to do. I think in the long term, it may also be a good bartering item too. I may have to look into wine making. Thanks for the tip Dragon!!!:thumb:I will add, if you are in a long term SHTF, the activity of MAKING the wine, and later drinking it is a great moral booster too!
What kind is it, I'll get some and try it?hi wepsbee, cool, dark and humid are the conditions you want for storage. and as consistant a temp as you can get, about 55 degrees.
Store your bottles on their sides or slightly inverted, thats what i do. Red wines are best for storage, champagne stores well, and there are a few white wines that can store too. Most wine you buy at the market is ready to drink and will taste best right away. Im no expert, but have read that most wines that are worthwhile storing are hundreds if not thousands of dollars a botlle. Im out of that price range, and a novice at any rate. I store what i enjoy drinking.
I just laid back 3 cases of my favorite red wine, because I love it and want to make sure I get some before Its all sold out for this year.
In a SHTF situation, I've got the perfect place for wine storage.I was wondering if wine would be a good storage item? I know there are people with wine cellars that store wines for many years.
