With much of the UK seeing temperatures hit the high 20s (and early 30s) this past week and no end in sight, I wanted to ask if anyone who doesn’t have a dedicated cellar/wine cabinet/fridge has done anything to protect their bottles?
I live in a flat in London and unfortunately the ambient temperature inside this past week has sat in the low 20s, with nowhere cooler to stash my collection (luckily, limited to a couple of dozen bottles).
Am I right to not be overly concerned about the long term health of my wine unless it starts to hit above 25 degrees indoors? Most of what I have will be drunk within a year or two, though there’s a couple of more special things I’d like to keep safe and healthy.
I know that this temperature is far from ideal but am I right in thinking that my wine won’t be cooked, presuming that the temperature does eventually come back down again?
