Returning Bottles of Wine to a Wine Cellar

Q. If I take a bottle of red wine out of my cellar with the intention of drinking it in the next couple of days and I don’t get around to opening it, is it better to drink it within the next few weeks or is it OK to put it back in storage?

A. Return the bottle to the cellar and there should be no harm done, unless the bottle had been subjected to extremes of temperature whilst out of the cellar. Don’t let this happen to often though as wine does not do well with yo-yo temperature fluctuations.
