Wine clubs and wine collections
If you want to start a wine collection without spending too much money, check to make sure the temperature in your basement or closet space stays more or less constant and isn’t too dry. Some people rent wine storage lockers. For the wines themselves, you may want to specialize in something good but not too costly, such as the Cabernet Sauvignons of California.
For a long time, Cabernet Sauvignon, which grows almost anywhere but is still high quality, was the most widely planted premium red wine grape in the world. With its cassis notes and strong tannins, the California Cabernet Sauvignon goes well with beef, lamb or game. Some say it should be served at 57 to 60 degrees to get the full flavor, while others recommend 65 degrees. Try putting the bottle in a refrigerator for 20 minutes before serving, or in an ice bucket for just five minutes. If you have a wine cellar, on the other hand, you may want let the wine warm up. Joining a wine club will help you get good deals on California Cabs.
