Buy the house and use a humidity and temperature monitor to check the conditions. If it needs to be corrected later you can do it then.

They're wrong. Ask them if they've done it and if they had problems. If they haven't done it, they...

Re: Donating wine- how to calculate tax deduction?

You deduct the full current value. No different that if you donated a stock that had appreciated in value. At this total dollar value the irs may not really care. If it was $10,000 or $100,000 they may take notice.

Re: How does one extract a broken cork from inside a bottle?

There is the old napkin trick. Empty the contents into another bottle or decanter. Using a cloth napkin, fold a corner to make a spoon shape, slide the napkin corner into the bottle, and try to “catch” the cork in the napkin fold. Then slowly pull it towards the neck and out of the bottle.
