Keep it in dark

The key to get quality aged wine is to leave it undisturbed in a dark place which has reasonably constant temperature throughout the day. The light and the heat that often coincides with it together can alter the composition of wine which contains alcohol and hence change the taste during the ageing process of the wine.  This can also lead to discoloration and even change the natural smell of the wine. The need for dark places to age wine is another reason why it is stored in dark colored bottles. You would find that red wines are stored in dark green bottles while white wine in light colored bottles.

 

Store in a cool place

The wine should not be stored near heat under any circumstances to avoid changing the composition of the wine. The best place to store your wine in the domestic realms is in the basement or the closet. Storing in the kitchen is not a good idea since the temperature varies there.

 

Is it meant to be aged?

Every wine need not be aged before it is suited for consumption. Hence it is important to know which wines can be aged and which are not essential to be aged. Wines like pinot noir, syrah, zinfandel etc. are some of the wines which improve with age.

Get Help From Other Relatives Or Family Members

It shouldn’t be called a family reunion if you were going to just take on all the work. Planning a reunion can be stressful but it will be easier if you let members of the clan participate and contribute some work early on. You can delegate tasks to each of them or ask for suggestions or whatever form of help they can offer.

Settle The Date And Stick To It

Since it’s a reunion which involves the entire kin with different schedules, make sure you plan really early so you can think of an ideal date that hopefully doesn’t coincide with any occasion within the family to set it. Then let the rest of the family know the date so they could have plenty of time to prepare and work around their schedule to clear that particular date. Since you planned early, everybody should be okay and stick with it.

Be Wise When It Comes To The Location

When we say wise, we don’t just mean cheap. It should be affordable, accessible, and remarkable. Make sure that the place can accommodate a lot of people, weather flexible, with good attractions that you guys can enjoy.

Don’t Forget To Book A Photobooth While You’re At It

The purpose of family reunions is to have fun, catch up with each other, and see relatives we don’t usually see on a regular basis due to a lot of factors, to bond and create memories. Therefore, with all of that going on, don’t you wanna make sure that such precious moments will be captured? So don’t forget to include booking a photobooth with OMG on your lists of must haves because everyone will surely love it.

Have A Workable Budget

Set a budget but be reasonable with it. We’re talking about a family reunion here, so expect to spend quite a sum but don’t use that as an excuse to splurge either. Just plan accordingly, estimate the expenses and add a little extra just in case.
