You make a good point, but I don't think mine is entirely moot. Light is simply bad for wine, period. BUT, unlike heat, it takes considerable time for light to do its damage. Consequently, the less light, the less of a problem, but total darkness is still ideal for longterm storage. However, in the short run, say a few months or so, I'm sure it's an insignificant problem unless the light is intense (i.e., direct sun).quote:Originally posted by indybob:
I'm wondering if it might be a mute point regarding the glass on front of the unit, regarding the UV permanence. Wouldn't this only be a factor if the the glass gets direct sunlight. In a darkened/shaded room, it would not apply?
