Wine Storage is important for any wine that is being kept for long-term aging. While most wine produced today is meant for near-term consumption, there are certain situations in which it may be set aside for long-term storage. Wine is one of the few commodities that can improve with age but it can also rapidly deteriorate if kept in inadequate conditions. 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 increasing 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 is very susceptible to changes in temperature, with temperature control being an important consideration in wine storage. If the wine is exposed to too high a temperature (in excess of 77 F (25 C)) for long periods of time, it may become spoilt or "cooked" and develop off flavors that taste raisiny or stewed. The exact length of time that a wine is at risk of exposure to high temperatures will vary depending on the wine, with some wines (such as Madeira which is exposed to high temperatures during its winemaking) being able to sustain exposure to high temperatures more easily than other, more delicate wines (such as Riesling). If the wine is exposed to temperatures that are too cold, the wine can freeze and expand, causing the cork to be pushed out; this will allow more oxygen to be exposed to the wine.

Dramatic temperature swings (such as repeated transferring a wine from a warm room to a cool refrigerator) can also cause adverse chemical reactions in the wine that may lead to a variety of wine faults. Most experts,  recommend that wine be kept at constant temperatures between 50-59F (10-15C). 52 F (11 C) may be the most ideal temperature for storage and aging.

The storage condition of the bottled wine will influence a wine's aging. Vibrations and heat fluctuations can hasten a wine's deterioration and cause adverse effect to it. In general, a wine has a greater potential to develop complexity and a more aromatic bouquet if it is allowed to age slowly in a relatively cool environment. The lower the temperature, the more slowly a wine develops.[5] On average, the rate of chemical reactions in wine doubles with each 18F (8C) increase in temperature. Experts recommend keeping wine intended for aging in a cool area with a constant temperature around 55 F (13 C). Wine can be stored at temperatures as high as 69 F (21 C) without long-term negative effect. Professor Cornelius Ough of the University of California, Davis believes that wine can be exposed to temperatures as high as 120 F (49 C) for a few hours and not be damaged
