Aside from legality, maintaining high standards of wine storage and abiding by the rules, if you have invested vast amounts of money into your product it is prudent to make sure that you keep it in mint condition until such a time arrives that you want to sell it or even consume it.
Playing by the wine storage rules often means that your wines can be in better condition than when you bought them and the prices you can therefore command increase accordingly.
