Let's consider some issues that some kitchens new to wines don't really think about.

Wines should be held at a proper humidity (generally between fifty to eighty percent, but the number may be changed depending on the circumstances).

Keep in mind that the higher humidity you store your wines at, the more risk there is that your wine will be damaged in the longer-term, reducing its shelf life.

Store your wine sideways.  Storing your wine sideways ensures that the cork will not dry out (always in contact with the wine).  When a cork dries out, small cracks can form, allowing air to leak in and hurt the flavor of the wine.

Avoid excessive light.  Wine should generally be stored in a dark area, with little natural or artificial light.  Though many wine bottles are tinted, you should still store your wine in a dark place so as to avoid any possibility of light damage.

Hope that helps!
