Why are humidifiers used in wine cellars?

Humidification systems can be found in all manner of applications – including wine storage. For the serious collector, the humidity within a wine cellar must be kept at around 75 per cent. But why is this the case?

Cork

When wine corks dry out, they shrink and no longer provide an airtight seal. If you’ve ever wondered why wine bottle are stored horizontally, it’s to ensure the wine is in constant contact with the cork, keeping it moist. Should the cork dry out and fail to adequately seal the bottle, then the quality of the wine will be compromised.

Wine

Wine that is not properly sealed is liable to spoil or oxidise, which affects its colour, taste and aroma.

Label

High humidity can damage the labels of wine bottles, which may make identification difficult or affect the resale price.
