Exposure to sunlight can adversely affect the aging process; it can provide the heat that can negatively accelerate the aging process. The ultraviolet range of the light spectrum can initiate oxidation. It reacts with phenolic compounds of wine and causes some wine faults.  Therefore, try to age your wines in tinted glass containers, the darker the glass the better. Some light bodied white wines, champagnes have greater risk of damage due to light.
