Queston about storage of screw top wine bottles?!

Question: Queston about storage of screw top wine bottles!?
I notice more and more wines have screw tops, not just the cheap ones!. What is the proper way to store an unopened bottle of wine with a screw top!.
I'm guessing the temperature would be the same but is it necessary to store it on it's side since you are not concerned about keeping the cork wet!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Wine bottles with natural cork stoppers are stored on thier side to prevent the cork from drying out!. A screw top is not going to let air in from drying because it isn't made from cork it's made from metal or plastic!. You can store a screw top any way you like!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Clara, I am going to tell you what my wife and I do!. We buy a lot of wine, French, Italian,Portuguesee, and now Australian wines are very popular and extremely good!.

We have like a cellar in the basement area, which is cool and dry!. We lay the bottles down in the wine racks, every now and then we give the bottles a slight turn!. We have both types screw and cork!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You can buy cork toppers that will fit into most wine bottles!. They have decorative tops and look "nice" as well as keep air out!. Www@FoodAQ@Com
