Packaging: The storage or keeping conditions of the brandy are very important if we want to preserve the wine's characteristics and guarantee a regular evolution for a long time. The storage place should guarantee: - temperature around 10º-12º; - some ventilation to avoid fungus proliferation; - absence of oscillations and vibrations; - absence of unpleasant odors; - bottles should be away from light; - relative humidity should be high.
