Will be wines be alright if stored in my car while visiting in the summer?
Your wines can easily overheat and be damaged if stored in a closed car for anymore than 30 minutes or so in temperatures above 80 degrees. To avoid damage, keep the wines in the air conditioned car rather than the trunk while driving between destinations and crack your windows to ventilate. Even with windows cracked, cars make great greenhouses and temperatures can soar to 170 degrees inside within a 1/2 hour even with windows cracked. Wine, like children & the elderly, do not fare well in cars in hot weather.
