For the wine connoisseurs and the aspiring wine connoisseurs, this new infographic from the team at HowLongToCook.org tells you everything you need to know about how to properly store wine at home. It includes helpful tips and relevant information regarding the factors that can affect proper wine storage, which include humidity, light, temperature, vibration, and even odors that can be nearby that will negatively affect the taste of your wine. As this guide states, you'll always want to store your wine away from odors. This is because corks are porous, which allows the wine to breath, but at the same time, it allows the strong odors to permeate from the cork, thus tainting the flavor of the wine. Because of this, it's advised that you keep your wine away from things like garbage cans, paint cans, cleaning products, and foods like garlic and onions.
