Basement storage: crate open or closed?
Hi. I just bought a crate of Gewurtztraminer. Am planning to store it in my basement. I'm assuming it's fine in the crate. Does it matter if the lid of the crate is open or shut? Air flow and all that.
Crate? Is it some sort of special container for wine? Or is it just the original cardboard case the wine came in?
If the former, it *might* make a difference -- use as directed. If it's the latter, it won't make a difference. How cool/warm is your basement, and how long are you intending to store the wine? (And what Gewurztraminer is it???)
