Hi all,
My father in law passed away a short while ago. When we cleaned out his house we found some wine bottles and I would like to know if there is a good change that they will still taste good.
the bottles were always quiet and dark location but not cooled. They were stored at room temperature.

I guess that depends what is "room temperature." If you live in a hot climate, forget it. Actually, even in a more moderate climate, it's likely that they're toast. Too bad, as there are some nice labels there. You can't sell them, so you might as well open them and see. And then let us know.
