Hey guys, this is my first post and I apologize if I should start by some sort of introduction I am unaware of. I have a question I know you guys can help me with. I'm new to wine (less than a year) and constantly learning the ropes.
I have a two-zone wine cooler I keep all of my wine in. Whites on top at 45deg F and reds on bottom at 55deg F. Well, I have run out of room in the bottom compartment and will be forced to temporarily store some reds in the top compartment with the whites. Should I leave the top compartment at 45deg and store the reds colder than normal? Raise the temperature to 55deg and store my few whites warmer than normal? Or meet in the middle and compromise at 50deg?
Please keep in mind two things. 1) I'm not storing $200+ bottles of wine (yet). 2) If I had to choose, I care more about my reds than my whites (yes I know that may answer my own question but still wanted to ask).
