I would go further than the previous post and say that any wine that you want to keep for more than a few weeks (let alone 10 years) should be stored horizontally (assuming cork closure, of course). It can take as little as two weeks for a cork not in contact with the wine to dry out and shrink.

Any wine you anticipate keeping for more than 10 years must be laid down, as you note to keep the cork from drying.

Your friend's wines are not "leaking from using this method". If they were, no one would lay wines down. His wines have "leaked" due to other problems. Keep in mind, leaking and seepage are two different things.

Guys,

What is the best way to cellar port? I always assumed that lying the bottle down to keep the cork moist was the best option, as with wine. A friend who recently discovered quite a few of their more expensive ports to be leaking from using this method has other ideas strangely enough!
If stored upright, wouldn't oxidisation be a greater risk?
