Bottle Orientation

Air causes the wine to oxidize. This results in premature aging and ultimately the wine turning to vinegar. The glass and the cork will control how much air enters the bottle. We don't have to worry about the glass, but some attention should be paid to the cork. To ensure proper aging, all wine has some air in the bottle to begin with. What's important is to ensure the cork remains moist so no additional air is allowed to enter the bottle. That's why it's advised to store your wine horizontally to keep the cork from cracking or shrinking, thus admitting unwanted air.
