If humidity is too high, you risk growing mold in your corks, labels and wine racks. If the temperature is too cold, the wine becomes dormant and would end up tasting flat instead of being fruity and sparkling. If the temperature is too high, you risk cooking the wine and aging it prematurely. Ideally, however, the cellar room itself should be designed and constructed precisely with the right conditions for these temperature and humidity variables to work.
Avoid Domestic Air Conditioning: Similarly, home air conditioning provides a poor environment for aging your wines, as it removes the humidity from the air which can lead to corks drying out. Additionally, if air conditioning is only turned on at certain times during the day then the wine will become subject to wide temperature fluctuations, which will inevitably cause irreparable damage to your wine. To properly cool and humidify a cellar you will need a cooling system designed specifically for cooling a wine cellar.
