Wine Barrel Humidification

In a typical storage area without humidification, about four gallons (15 litters) of wine evaporate from a 60-gallon barrel each year. In the two years that fine red wine is typically aged, that can amount to eight gallons (30 litters). Maintaining an ideal humidity level can significantly reduce the expenses associated with the “topping off” process, making winery humidification one of the most effective tools for wine storage.

Relative humidity in storage areas also has a primary role when the final ethanol content of the wine is being determined. Water and ethanol evaporate at the same rate when the storage area humidity is 70%. When RH level is lower than this, water evaporates more quickly, causing increased ethanol content. The process moves in the opposite direction when the humidity is over 70%.

Using the Miatech system will prevent wine evaporation of up to 14% over a two-year aging period depending on the temperature control of the storage area.
