Q: Is it OK that a bottle of wine was exposed to a temperature of 70-75 degrees for 24 hours? –Sun
A: Ideally, wine should be stored at a constant temperature of 55 degrees Fahrenheit. A deviation such as you mention over a short period of time should not damage your wine. However a protracted exposure to temperatures of 70-75 degrees will accelerate your wine's aging process.
