      I thought Brian was just getting to be such a celebrity that his agent recommended a nose job 🙂

      It appears that you are storing all of your champagne bottles “cork up” rather than lying them on their side. Is that the correct way to store them at home? All my other wine bottles are stored so that the wine is touching the cork.

      Hello Iris. Great question!

      We actually do store all of our bottles on their side. But unlike *still* wine, it is not necessary to store Champagne on the side as the carbonation within the bottle does the job of keeping the cork moist. However, for prolonged storage, we always error on the safe side and store the bottles on their sides. Cheers!

      Great video! I’ve been storing all my champagne in the fridge…but now I know to store them somewhere else until shortly before I plan to drink them. Thanks!

      Bryan – Alaskan brown bears don’t like sparkling wine or champagne — it’s a fact — you would be safer camping up here.

      We would LOVE to go camping with you, Shaun!! And of course, we will bring the Champagne.

      What about a wine fridge? Found one where I can fit champagne bottles upright under the horizontal racks housing still wines. And if a wine fridge is ok, can you recommend a temperature range? Thanks Bryan!

      Hi Jamie! Great that you found a wine fridge that works with Champagne bottles. Producers of those things always seem to forget about Champagne! Anyway, the temperature range that I would recommend is between 50-58 degrees. Thank you!

      Can’t wait for our first club shipment. We’ll stay away from bears when drinking it though. At least we’ll try!

      Great video, Bryan. Of course, I can’t help but offer the suggestion of an offsite wine storage facility, in addition to those options presented in your video. It’s one way to guarantee that all your wines, including sparkling, are stored at the proper temperatures year-round! Plus, we can even receive club shipments on behalf of your members.

      Cheers, and I look forward to reading more blog posts!

      Great point about the offsite wine storage facility, Patrick. That is indeed a great option, and so cool that you can receive the FC Club shipments for our customers! Thanks for pointing that out to us. Cheers.
